Background

In this week’s ball-blinding episode, Magnus continues the ongoing progression of the unfolding of the protracted furthering of Tremendous Bendis Weekly.

Y’see, boys and girls, Brian Michael Bendis, though widely popular, has his share of detractors.

The potential causes are almost too numerous to mention: his writing style, his prolificacy or his wanton fixation for really freaking long storytelling. I mean, seriously, the guy could hardly be accused of writing for the trade anymore; at one point, it was more like he was writing for the omnibus.

Or it’s possible that some of the summer of our Bendis discontent is the product of all those things happening at once simultaneously in concert with each other together all at the same time!

Whatever the case, a lot of comic mavens bristle merely at the name “Brian Michael Bendis” in the writer’s credit.

This sort of thing is a bit trendy on the Internet. Or it was at one time, anyway.

But Magnus is having none of it, ladies and gentlemen!

Yes indeed, kiddos, while Magnus is hardly a Bendis devotee, it would be accurate to say that His Excellency has enjoyed several Bendis stories and, it so happens, was in a mood to gab about some Bendis stories.

And, to finally get to the point here, the spotlight shines this week on the ‘Underboss’ storyline from Daredevil vol. 2 #26-31.

What’s so special about Underboss, you ask? Well, giving that all away here would probably harm this episode’s download numbers. However, this storyline is what we in the know call “The beginning of the Bendis run proper” for Daredevil. Some really big stuff spun out of this story.

For those determined to ruin the Internet for everyone else by perpetuating click-bait on Facebook, “Kingpin’s underlings find out he’s been keeping a *VERY* big secret and then *THIS* happens!”

Due to the deluge of ass-kickery, unfortunately there’s just no time for listener feedback this week.

However, there has been a fair amount of feedback (and feed-forward!) fairly recently so this subject hasn’t been entirely ignored.

Patience! The vast backlog of feedback will be addressed in due time. Fear not!

In the meantime, though, don’t let the lack of feedback this time get you down! You can still offer your feeble effort at tribute! You humble serfs are always welcome to kiss your benevolent leader’s ring. Corrupt DiManzocorp interns are ready, willing, able and eager to accept your bribe to present your meager missives to your wise emperor. The email address to use is trentusmagnus@gmail.com as the other seems to be having technical problems.

In an another sublime act of truly unprecedented charity, your emperor permits you lowly rabble to suggest topics for a future episode. Thus, petitions may be sent to trentusmagnus@gmail.com for DiManzocorp interns to review, whereupon your leader might consider thinking about the possibility of potentially discussing whatever you have in mind some day. And that’s a promise!
