NEW COMIC: DESCENDER #2
TRADE PICK: DAREDEVIL YELLOW
“The measure of a man is not in how he gets knocked to the mat, it is in how he gets up.” Those are the words blind attorney Matthew Murdock’s father lived and died by. Prizefighter Battlin’ Jack Murdock’s murder set in motion a chain of events that exploded with a new super hero swinging out of New York City’s Hell’s Kitchen – the blind Acrobat Daredevil. In this retelling of the early career of the Man Without Fear, the Eisner Award-winning team of Jeph Loeb and Tim Sale (Spider-Man: Blue, Batman: The Long Halloween) have taken an inspiring action-adventure story and blended it with a romantic comedy. The result, highlighted by Sale’s dazzling ink washes and Matt Hollingsworth’s spectacular color, is the heartwarming and heartbreaking story of two young people in love – Matthew Murdock and Karen Page
NEW COMIC: THE WALKING DEAD #140
Life and Death.
TRADE PICK: DAREDEVIL BY BENDIS & MALEEV TP ULT COLL BOOK 01

Now, this Eisner award-winning run is collected across three titanic trade paperbacks! In this volume, witness the Kingpin’s downfall at the hands of Sammy Silke & see how a down-on-his-luck FBI agent can change Matt’s life forever.
NEW COMIC: MASKS 2 #1
TRADE PICK: DAREDEVIL: THE MAN WITHOUT FEAR
A fire burns deep within Matt Murdock. He was raised by a single father, an over-the-hill prizefighter with one last chance to make it good – a chance that cost him his life. Taunted and tormented by children while growing up, Matt’s life was irrevocably altered after he was blinded by radioactive materials while saving the life of an old man. The payoff? An unbreakable will and a keen intelligence, helping focus the super-senses he was blessed with during the accident. His story is one of love, pain, disappointment and strength.
