Daredevil and Real Smuck
By Michael Vance
“Daredevil” #323/$1.25, 30 pages from Marvel Comics/D. G. Chichester, words: Scott McDaniel, art/available in comic shops and newsstands.
Daredevil is hot, hot, hot. Not, not, not.
Daredevil is a superhero who received heightened senses, sonar … and blindness from a radiation accident. As the fourth handicapped hero in comic books, he’s battled crime as a lawyer, and as Daredevil since 1964. Along the way, his publishers occasionally check his temperature with fans to make sure Daredevil remains hot. When sales fall, they adjust his thermostat.
This superhero’s latest thermometer tweak is more confusing than converting Fahrenheit to Centigrade. Will a new costume and trendy art and writing turn up the heat?
Reading this comic is like trying to understand someone talking with his mouth too full. Lots of effort and words produce only a dribble of meaning. I think loads of super-groups are fighting for control of a “virus”. Any more insight is lost to density. There is just too much plot and too many characters. There are too many time and scene changes.
Looking at “Daredevil” is like musing over a painting. What is beautiful at a proper distance becomes a confusing blur of lines when you move too close. Page layouts become bewildering storytelling here when visually “reading” the art panel to panel. There’s too much sameness of color. There are too many objects in each panel battling for attention. There are too many distant scenes making character identification difficult.
There is just too much.
Daredevil’s artist and writer aren’t untalented hacks. It sometimes takes great organization to produce utter chaos. But until they learn that less is more in comic storytelling, readers will remain hot under the collar and “Daredevil” won’t be hot on the counter.
And the blind will continue to lead The Blind.
MINIVIEW: “Real Smuck” #1. Juvenile obsession with nasty things. A man vomiting on its cover speaks graphically of the obscenities, violence, and fatalism inside.
Ten Years Later.
This Daimler Fleetline had been new to London Transport in March 1973 as DMS1407 and was allocated to Tottenham depot. However London Transport took a long time to come to terms with its new Fleetlines and the type weren't really suited to LTs way of doing things. Large scale withdrawls commenced in the late seventies and the Purfleet dealer Ensign acted as salesman for London Transport to dispose of the buses.
Greater Manchester were looking for buses to speed up OMO in its Lancashire United subsidiary which still operated a good deal of half cab Guy Arabs. Thought was given to overhaul some former Manchester Fleetlines but as these were as old as the Arabs they were to replace this wasn't seen as cost effective.
The answer to the problems came with the large number of DMS vehicles available and ten were purchased from the Purfleet dealer in 1980, which were quickly followed by another ten. The buses had a mixture of Park Royal and MCW bodywork, this being one of the latter and were converted to single doorway by Ensign who also applied the LUT style orange and white livery : The three piece Manchester blind layout being fitted at Atherton. Unusually they had Leyland 0.680 engines, all GMT and LUT Fleetlines utilising the Gardner power unit.
327 as the former DMS1407 had become was later renumbered 2327 in the 1981 partial renumbering of former LUT vehicles is seen passing the companies head office at Howe Bridge, Atherton in Fenruary 1983 almost ten years after the bus had been new.
