In a Wednesday blog post, Waid unveiled what he's calling "Thrillbent 3.0," which adds another layer of content that Waid is calling a sort of "Hulu Plus of comics." Fans can pay a $3.99 monthly fee -- about as much as the cover price for most Marvel single issues -- to access a collection of titles including a revived version of Waid, Barry Kitson and Chris Sotomayor's Gorilla Comics/DC series Empire. There's also a free new app available for iOS that gives fans mobile access to the material.
When Mark Waid and Paolo Rivera relaunched Daredevil in 2011, they did so with a radical tone shift that broke away from the direction of the book that had been established for years while still building on the past, and when Waid and Chris Samnee ended the run this month, it was with a shift that was every bit as dramatic.

Last week readers learned that Daredevil, the monthly title from creators Mark Waid and Chris Samnee, was coming to an end with issue #36 early next year. Given the series' near-universal critical praise, coupled with the fact that 2014 marks the character's 50th anniversary, it seemed inevitable that an announcement -- if not multiple announcements -- would be coming out soon regarding plans for Daredevil's future.
And today one of those new plans was revealed, as Marvel has announced Daredevil: Road Warrior, a brand new series under the publisher's Infinite Comics digital-only imprint, written by Waid and illustrated by Peter Krause, Waid's collaborator on Irredeemable for Boom and Insufferable for the writer's digital imprint Thrillbent.

Right now there are approximately two things that Superman or a Superman-analogue character can do to inspire vitriolic hatred. The first is to take a walking tour of major U.S. cities while using his powers to settle local problems. And
