Stop! Back matter time!
This week, Matt is too busy having a child to write the blog. So that duty falls to me, the third member of the ThreeOneFive, Evin. I haven’t had the pleasure of writing the page blog yet, but every single week I write the supplementary blog, the Sunday Bonus Lunch, which Matt dutifully promotes. If you haven’t read it, you should. Do it now, it
will make your life way better in every possible way is somewhat interesting. I also do some design work on the comic, like this page you see today. Anyhoo, nice to meet you.
This section of back matter will all revolve around Abigail Singer, the Saxon tart we’ve all come to know and love over the last year. We’re privy to a little about her past so far in the story. She is Amelia Upton, the granddaughter or Sir Arthur Holmwood. (He’s already met his fate in a previous back matter, having been tossed in the loony bin after stabbing his own daughter to death in front of Abigail.) These next pieces of story will fill us in on what happened after that fateful night. Hang on, dear readers, there are twists incoming over the next three weeks!
Meanwhile, behind the scenes, we’re getting ready to blast the final chapter into the world as we speak! Let me be the first to tell you, Danilo is KILLING it more than I could have ever possibly imagined. A lot about this current story is more than we imagined though. When we first discussed telling this Daredevils story, I assured the guys that we could do Pitch Black Day in 20 pages, easy. I was way off. But even though the story has gone way (way!) over budget page-wise, it has been totally worth it. These back matter pages, while not the stunning art extravaganzas that we’re used to on a week to week basis, are still some of my favorite story moments. Finding an unorthodox way to get you wonderful readers from point A to point B has been a cool learning experience this last year, and it’s something we plan to keep doing as long as our minds can churn out Daredevils adventures.
What does Matt usually say here? Something about RSS, whatever that is. If you RSS our page, awesome! Keep it up. RSSing is the coolest. Also, like us on Facebook! Every week I make a Radiogram that barks about the upcoming page. It’s cool, trust me. I swear it’s better than the inspirational memes that that one guy from college you knew back then but not so much anymore posts. For real. (If you ARE that guy, keep it up! Follow us anyway as if I didn’t say that last part.) And finally, follow Matt on Twitter, so you can get gleaming nuggets of wisdom from
some dude with a journalism degree, my best friend, and brand new father of a healthy baby boy!
Be here next week, Daredevilers, as the Secret Origin of Abigail Singer continues!
