Talking Custom Binds and Daredevil with Tim Benson of Omaha Bound!
I'm waaaaaaaaay overdue for a blog update! Life hasn't been very cooperative over the last few months as far as allowing time for writing reviews, but I have been keeping both my Daredevil Collected Edition Reference and Jason Aaron Thor Collected Edition Reading Order updated, so I've got that going for me...which is nice.
On a more serious note, I had the opportunity last week to nerd out for a little bit with Tim Benson of Omaha Bound in the second installment of his new series for Omaha Bound's YouTube channel. Tim was a generous host, humoring my long-windedness and many Daredevil-related tangents (anyone who has followed this blog shouldn't be surprised by that at all). As you'll learn, he's also quite a DD fan, so you're all lucky that we managed to stay on topic as much as we did! He even rightly called me out on forgetting to mention the Andy Diggle/Shadowland era when discussing the amazing run that the title has been on for the last twenty years. Fortunately for me, my support of this era is well documented here, but it was an omission none-the-less!
Our discussion (which was my YouTube debut) can be seen below, or by visiting Omaha Bound on YouTube.
Just a couple other quick notes about/links to things we discussed:
- Both my Greg Rucka/Marco Checchetto Punisher and Daredevil: Playing to the Camera were both by Houchen Bindery.
- My Charles Soule Daredevil binds were bound by Heroes Rebound Studios.
- The mentioned, but yet to be completed Ann Nocenti Daredevil binds will be a Heroes Rebound/Houchen collaboration (at least that's the plan at the moment due to the current COVID-19 mess).
- Pictures of my completed custom bind projects (and some design process pics) can be found on my Instagram.
I have not yet had the chance to work with Tim/Omaha Bound on any custom binds yet, but hopefully we can figure out a project to work on together in the future.
Many thanks to Tim and Omaha Bound for having me as a guest, it was a ton of fun!
