Where's the Trade? Karl Kesel's Daredevil (1996-1997)


On this episode, I rhetorically as the question 'Where's the Trade?' of writer Karl Kesel's run on Daredevil from the mid-90s.  In my mind, this run was a 'back to basics' approach to a character who was at the time in desperate need of it.  In addition to speaking generally about the run, I'll be recapping & commenting on my favorite issue from this run, Daredevil #360 in which our hero takes on the menace of the Absorbing Man!Download this episode HERE!Karl Kesel interview on manwithoutfear.comScroll down to see images from these issues, and please be sure to check out previous episodes of I'm the Gun on iTunes & Google Play!Also, I'd love to hear from you!  Email me at: imthegun@gmail.com, or hit me up on Twitter: @imthegunThanks for listening!Theme created using a sample of 'Shotgun' by Duran DuranDD's senses perceive Creel's switch from brick to cold metalA refreshingly understated revelation tucked at the bottom of the pageLove the way Nord/Ryan's cowl hugs DD's faceIs this an artistic tribute?
