Blind Dates and Broken Hearts:

Sequart’s Fourth Single

Blind Dates and Broken HeartsSequart Research & Literacy Organization is proud to release its fourth single (or short, standalone book): Blind Dates and Broken Hearts: The Tragic Loves of Matthew Murdock, by Ryan K. Lindsay.

Daredevil is perhaps the one super-hero not defined by his villains so much as his loves. His major love affairs — Elektra, Karen Page, Typhoid Mary, the Black Widow, Milla Donovan — tend to end badly, often in murder, insanity, and betrayal. They define periods of his life, but they also define this character, who became a super-hero both to earn and to escape his father’s love. In this short book, Ryan K. Lindsay offers a new lens through which to see Matt Murdock’s troubled history and tormented psyche.

The contents of this book will be included in The Devil is in the Details: Examining Matt Murdock and Daredevil, which is coming soon from Sequart.

Blind Dates and Broken Hearts runs 66 pages in print, where it retails for $4.99. It’s also available on Kindle for $1.99. It sports a cover by Alice Lynch.
