We didn’t plan it this way, but the Traders are back with our second consecutive episode with a pick from 2016! Is the year just THAT special and rewarding? With our longest ever round-up of books also on sale, the comics market for these last five months of the year would seem to present a slightly different picture. But it’s a segment with a purpose, for where better to bury the increased influence of Marvel’s Inhumans, who play a not-altogether welcome role in this show’s selection: Daredevil (vol. 5) #10-14! DD’s new creative team of writer Charles Soule and artist Ron Garney have some big shoes to fill in the departing, critically acclaimed Mark Waid and Chris Samnee. With characters like Blindspot and Muse making a big splash, we evaluate how they’re faring in this representative story arc. Is Muse a worthwhile addition to Daredevil’s traditionally unimpressive rogue’s gallery? Do the Inhumans add anything to this story? And are we eager to explore this status quo further? Join Tim, Andy, Scott, and Shawn on this edition of Traders of the Lost Arcs where we unpack some truly DARK ART! Featuring bonus rants on Zack Snyder’s DCU and the shitshow that was Death of X.
