Batman and Daredevil (Retro)



Daredevil's simple all-red costume designs is one of the most effective in comics.  Even so, I still get a kick out of the yellow and red outfit that he wore for his first few adventures.  It doesn't seem like it should work, but for some reason I like it.

I have read that Daredevil is another contender for a movie reboot, and it will be interesting to see how that plays out.  I think a Daredevil is a character that could perhaps be best suited for an ongoing TV series.  It could definitely be done on a reasonable budget and the machinations of the underworld and the legal system with Matt Murdock trying to navigate both could be the springboard for a complex, continuing story line. Maybe if Marvel has luck with their proposed Hulk series we will see something like this in the future.

I really enjoy the covers you've developed. The Batman and Boba Fett from Brave and the Bold is my favorite.

Then you'll probably like tomorrow's cover...

Let's see... Bobba Fett is part of a famous movie franchise? We are in the "D's". Hmmm wonder who would fit the bill? Could it be Thomas Wayne in a costume of his own, connected to a respirator?

If you're going retro, why not Batman and the original, Lev Gleason, Daredevil? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Daredevil_(Lev_Gleason_Publications)

I do have plans for a cover featuring the Lev Gleason Daredevil, but that's down the road a bit.
