This has been my year of Brian Micheal Bendis. Kinda sad that in a year when I’ve been reading the most of his current and backlogged comic series, he’s been wooed away to DC Comics under an exclusive contract. With 5 monthly series in my pull-list for Marvel, I’m really excited about what they’ll give him at DC. Inside of my Marvel-heavy list, a few image comics like Black Science and The Walking Dead seeped in to take some top spots.
A dream come true, my favorite writer (Brian Michael Bendis) has created a new version of The Defenders with four of my favorite Superheroes (Luke Cage, Jessica Jones, Daredevil and Iron Fish). Based on the series of Marvel’s Netflix shows, The Defenders feels cohesive with the all of the heroes solo books (except Iron Fist) that Bendis has previously written.
Daredevil! Luke Cage! Jessica Jones! Iron Fist! Individually, these four heroes have been on the front lines of the battle to keep the streets of the city safe and secure! But now, with a deadly enemy from the dim past making a major move to unite the underworld, they will need to become more-they will need to become DEFENDERS! Brian Michael Bendis and David Marquez unite to bring you the next great super-team, in the tradition of NEW AVENGERS!
