Sequart Releases The Devil is in the Details: Examining Matt Murdock and Daredevil

The Devil is in the Details: Examining Matt Murdock and DaredevilSequart Research & Literacy Organization is proud to release The Devil is in the Details: Examining Matt Murdock and Daredevil, edited by Ryan K. Lindsay.

For half a century, Daredevil has been an outsider and a paradox, a loner, a down-to-earth super-hero, a blind man with super-powers, and the star of some of Marvel’s most celebrated stories.

The Devil is in the Details examines both Daredevil and his alter ego, Matt Murdock, from a variety of critical perspectives. Whether it’s explorations of Daredevil’s troubled history with love, his relationship to Foggy Nelson or Spider-Man, or new takes on his classic runs, this is one book no Daredevil fan or scholar should be without.

The book features a foreword by Ralph Macchio, who guided Daredevil as the title’s editor from 1984 to 1995. Contributors include Timothy Callahan, Jon Cormier, Julian Darius, Matt Duarte, Stéphane Guéret, Christine Hanefalk, Forrest Helvie, Manuella Hyvard, Geoff Klock, Nicolas Labarre, Ryan K. Lindsay, Vinny Murphy, Will Murray, Henry Northmore, Marie-Laure Saulnier, Kevin Thurman, and M. S. Wilson. The book sports a cover by Alice Lynch. It runs 246 pages, retails for $15.99 in print, and is also available on Kindle for $5.99.

The longest essay in the book, Blind Dates and Broken Hearts: The Tragic Loves of Matthew Murdock by Ryan K. Lindsay, is also available as a Sequart single.
