NYC – Daredevil #8/Strange Attractors #1 Signing

00000000000-dd8-nyc

Writer Charles Soule appears at Midtown Comics Downtown to sign copies of Marvel’s Daredevil #8 and BOOM! Studios’ Strange Attractors on at 7:00 PM on Thursday, June 9th!

Daredevil #8:
Losing a big case has landed A.D.A. Matt Murdock in night court for the foreseeable future, meaning less time to clean up the streets as Daredevil. Luckily Blindspot’s around to pick up the slack. But the young hero might be in over his head when he stumbles upon a horrific crime scene, one that will terrify even The Man Without Fear.
Rated T+

Strange Attractors #1:
What’s to Love: Writer Charles Soule (Daredevil, Civil War) crafted a mind-bending story about how chaos math kept New York City from collapsing under itself. Presented for the first time as a limited series, each oversized issue of Strange Attractors features 30 pages of content, including new, never-before-seen bonus story pages.

What It Is: Dr. Brownfield believes that a series of cataclysmic events are coming to New York City, and someone has to keep the city safe after he’s gone. Enter Heller Wilson, a brilliant mathematics student, who discovers that his ailing, perhaps insane, mentor has been saving New York City from societal collapse by a series of ‘adjustments,’ a la the Butterfly Effect. But now, all signs point toward an impending disaster. Can Wilson take what little he’s learned and save the city in time?
