Newp. Just, neeeeew thanks. I’m gonna newp right on out of here. The last thing I need to think about is possessed orthodontic tools drilling the shit out of my god damned mouth. Fuck! This poor guy gets gangbanged by dentist drills and turned into a demonic robotic dentist clown, Superman 3 style. This is the most violent Inferno comic yet. It actually gives a realistic take on what a true demon invasion of New York City would look like. Just look at this guy who got bitten in half by a taxi cab!!
I thought the X-Men comics were dark but they’ve got nothing on DD. (Daredevil #265 – Apr 1989 – Inferno Crossovers)
Hmm that’s weird. The Inferno Crossovers omnibus goes from Daredevil #263 straight to Daredevil #265. I guess issue #264 wasn’t important. Oh well. Anyway, these issues of Daredevil have been DAAARK. Like, properly dark. Just look at those giblets dripping off Matt’s baton there. This is a demon invasion of New York City after all, but it seems like the only writer taking it seriously is Ann Nocenti. It really feels like the end of times in these comic books, with hell split open and spilling billions of demons into the streets. Maybe it seems so serious because Daredevil is already rife with so many Christian themes and Matt so commonly struggles with spiritual existentialisms. Or maybe because Ann Nocenti was on the most drugs back in the 80s. (Daredevil #265 – Apr 1989 – Inferno Crossovers)
