    Default Chip Zdarsky does it again

    Chip's run on Daredevil is fantastic. I've just read the latest issue, #9, and he manages to fit so much in a single issue. Not to mention the great art by Sharma. This is the first series I've read in awhile that I want to just buy trades for everyone I know.

    I've lost track of Daredevil over the years but I agree with you about Zdarsky's talent. I think he should take on the Fantastic Four next. Slott is not doing what the title needs to make it top drawer again. It's very hit or miss.

    I've only recently gotten into comics, so I don't know any of the deeplore, but the Zdarsky run does a great job at being a standalone story. The references to past events/necessary background lore is always presented to the reader. The Iron Man book that Simone took over from Slott also got much better immediately IMO. I hope he is able to find a book that suits him well, but I do prefer it when someone else is writing.

    Zdarsky has become one of my favorite writers. I am a long time Daredevil fan and am very much enjoying his run right now. You are right that issue 9 packed quite a bit!

    His current mini-series: Spider-Man: Lift Story is becoming one of my all time favorite spiderman stories. Highly recommend this series!

    After his Marvel 2 in 1 which was a hidden gem among comics, I was really hoping he would take over the FF book. Perhaps in the future he can get in on that title. I’m not a fan of Slott.

    His Spider-Man is a dissapointment (especially Life Story), but his Daredevil run has been pretty good so far, at least it has better start than Soule's

    I liked Zdarsky's Marvel Two in One quite a lot too, which in a sneaky way was briefly a Fantastic Four book, with Ben and Johnny teamed up with Infamous Iron and Rachna Koul tagging along. The MTIO annual featuring Victor and a new Council of Reeds was also a favorite along with the real Reed returning later on towards the end of the series.

    His Daredevil run is fantastic, I agree. Obviously, I love it when people are loving Daredevil. But I don't want to let his Invaders run go unnoticed. It's absolutely a hidden gem.

    I'm trying the Invaders next. I have some catching up to do. Lucky with my Unlimited Marvel access I can go back and read those first issues. I have the current issue I like the art team there too.

    I would recommend reading Aaron's Avengers issues that lead up to it as well as the Best Defense miniseries. It's ultimately not crucial, but it's a good prelude.

    I've been a fan of his since his Howard the Duck run. Also, his Star-Lord series was great too!

    Another top-notch job from Zdarsky. It is nice to see I am not alone in my appreciation of his recent work on Daredevil.

    If you liked those books (and I loved them) check out "Kaptara" if you haven't. It's an action-comedy in a sci fi setting. Basically an awkward, nerdy scientist crash lands on Eternia (He-Man's planet). He lives in He-Man's castle and has to adjust life in an insane world where science is useless. It's hilarious.

    Thank you for letting me know about this!!! MOTU was my favorite toy line & cartoon growing up in the 80's, so this sounds fun. I'll be ordering it asap. White Trees #1 & Invaders #8 came in the mail today so I'll be reading those tonight.

    100% agree! Zdarky's run has been fantastic thus far and issue #9 may be the single best Daredevil issue I have read in quite some time. While the art in #9 was solid, I still miss the art we got from Checchetto in the first arc of Zdarsky's run.
