  1. This volume of Daredevil, which introduces one of his supposed greatest foes, has just about every problem comics had in the late 80s and early 90s First of all, Typhoid Mary is introduced with basically no explanation for where she came from or why she s suddenly in town There s a vast splash page of exposition used to attempt to explain her powers and her particular brand of lunacy, but all this did was further make me wonder Why in the hell is she going after Daredevil Why is she even in New [...]


  2. A noted Daredevil storyline from 1988 89 featuring the introduction of Typhoid Mary, one of DD s dangerous enemies The Kingpin hires Mary to seduce Matt and break his heart, but she takes it a little bit too far.Mary has dissociative identity disorder, her mind containing a psychotic and playful Typhoid and a sane and peaceful Mary Her tactic of attacking Daredevil as Typhoid and actually causing Matt to fall for her as Mary was really compelling She knew his secret identity but he did not know [...]


  3. There s something about Typhoid Mary It is impossible to review this story without explaining the context a bit I first read these comics in Finnish, in the nineties, as they were collected in a magazine called Sarjakuvalehti you can actually see which Marvel comics were collected in it between 1990 96 on this website it s in Finnish perunamaa sarjakuvaroc So I must have been around ten at the time And I can tell you that Daredevil both Miller s and Nocenti s made quite an impact.After reading t [...]


  4. Segundo tomo de la etapa de Ann Nocenti a cargo del diablo de la cocina del infierno Esta vez ya con John Romita Jr como nico acompa ante Si el anterior tomo era ya un buen comienzo tras la alargada sombra de Frank Miller y Born Again , aqu despegamos definitivamente gracias a una de esas amantes que destruyen al h roe y de paso a la persona tras la mascara Dice Ann Nocenti que quer a romper con los c nones femeninos en los tebeos y desde luego con Mar a Tifoidea se rompi el molde, porque es una [...]


  5. Nocenti s work here is genius The fact that she was writing these scripts at a major company is still shocking Many people unfairly read this as subversive, overly political, etc all of which may be true, for all I know , but what they completely miss is that Nocenti has put together an incredibly complex analysis of heroism and it s hypocrisy The world is incredibly grey, where right and wrong begin to lose their meaning except in the eyes of the children here I m also fascinated by Nocenti s p [...]


  6. It s a little difficult to review this book The immediate impression I had upon finishing it was to wonder why Ann Nocenti isn t always mentioned in the same breath as the greats, such as obviously Frank Miller or Chris Claremont or Dennis O Neill or You get the idea But taking into account the inconsistent nature of this particular storyline, I wonder if it s indicative of her output overall.Let s get this out of the way there are some great comics in this collection Nocenti and Romita whose ar [...]


  7. A mi me encanta Daredevil, con su actitud sufrida, que siempre cree en la justicia, sus saltos en la ciudad y sus enemigos de lujo, por eso me anime a leer este tomo y no me decepciono Typhoid Mary es una asesina con dos personalidades, en un lado es una ternurita que dan ganas de invitarla a comer helado y contarle tu vida, en otra, es una Jesse Jane con poderes telekineticos y pirotecnicos que quiere sangre Ac esta este Matt Murdock que siempre se mete en l os de faldas ah, para ser ciego y vi [...]


  8. In my continuing quest to read Daredevil, I found myself working up to Ann Nocenti s Typhoid Mary storyline There s definitely some good stuff in here it s always nice to see Daredevil s life take a beating, not because I wish him any ill, but because it s so interesting to see how he reacts to fate s latest kick in the teeth , but there s some less than good stuff as well Like Typhoid Mary s visual design, for example Who the hell came up with that What s with the metal shoulders She looks rid [...]


  9. I have no idea how to rate this.Nocenti s run is schizophrenic get it like Typhoid Mary Ho ho ho OK Back to reviewing she introduces great characters, great Big Ideas, tries to move Daredevil to places where he hasn t been before And then none of that goes anywhere there is no pay off, no real resolution, everything just ends So on one hand I really liked her run for all the ideas that are thrown at us, and yes, even for the Big Messages that the characters are constantly proclaiming but on the [...]


  10. It s strange Daredevil works best when written as a pulp hero, as with Frank Miller or Brian Bendis, but sometimes people just want to see him as a superhero doing big things, like they can with Spider Man I prefer the pulp every time, giving Daredevil something that makes him really stand out from other heroes.This book is trying to blend both worlds, doing the superhero thing while building a dark atmosphere of story The introduction of Typhoid Mary is actually very engaging and I m glad I rea [...]


  11. The definition of why event crossovers suck The plot of the book gets shot in the last 2 or 3 issues by the inferno crossover Suddenly the story shifts and makes almost no sence to anyone reading this without at least knowing what inferno was The story itself is good, Typhoid Mary is a great character Daredevil Matt kind of suffer from focus shifting from Typhoid, Kingpin, and Foggy The children in the book get to be annoying but only show up a few times so they are not that big of a deal All of [...]


  12. I really dislike the Romita artwork in this collection, but Nocenti does a great job putting together a spooky and tense story Aside from the well executed characters, there s an inspired decision to have an ongoing trash collectors strike, so as the story progresses, the filth piles up and gives everything a claustrophobic and corrupted feel.


  13. Por lo que veo en la descripci n, el contenido de este tomo lo tengo distribuido entre los tacos 2 y 3 de la colecci n de retapados que sac Forum hace bocha Cuando finalmente me los lea, ver si reparto la rese a entre esos libros y este o qu.


  14. Well, it s an OK story From the beginning it was good until the middle and end, when the frigging devil popped out of nowhere and out of context.



  15. Probably deserves at least another half a star for Karen Page Karen Page I don t click with the way Nocenti writes Matt, but Typhoid Mary s an interesting chick, and also Karen Page.
