Strip! – Daredevil by Alex Maleev and Alex Irvine
Classic heroes month continues on Strip! with a look at the red-suited vigilante Daredevil – blind lawyer by day and superhero by night. Trying to break the record for the number of people with the same first name in any one episode of the show, Alex Fitch talks to the Bulgarian artist Alex Maleev who with writer Brian Bendis brought the periodical back to the forefront of Marvel Comics’ line in an award winning four year run on the title in the mid 2000s. Alex also talks to novelist Alex Irvine whose anachronistic reimagining of the comic – Dardevil Noir – starts next month and combines the Chandleresque storytelling of Frank Miller’s iconic run on the title with the look and feel of classic Film Noir, relocating the adventures of Matt Murdock to Hell’s Kitchen in the 1930s… The UK’s only weekly radio show about comic books, illustration and sequential art. Featuring: one to one interviews with the world’s finest comic book creators and experts, recordings of panels from comic book conventions and more experimental episodes that include monologues and performances by practitioners of the ninth art.
