Kick in the Crotch Month, Day 31: I find it hard to believe that was really Daredevil's message

And so here we are at the end of Kick in the Crotch Month, and here's the sequence that inspired me to start clippin' and savin' crotch kick panels:

Panels from New Avengers v.1 #27 (April 2007), script by Brian Michael Bendis, pencils and inks by Leinil Francis Yu, colors by Dave McCaig, letters by Richard Starkings and Albert Deschesne

Oh my dear. For a sequence leading into one of the biggest turning points of the recent history of the Marvel Universe, this is just awful. Would Matt Murdock actually say that? Could the dialogue be any sillier? And why sully my favorite Marvel sound effect with that panel? Eeek! Why, it's as if Brian Bendis was actually trying to kick us in the crotch through the medium of a comic book. OW MY SENSIBILITIES

Tomorrow! When animals attack! and they don't kick people in the crotch either.

Is BMB secretly the president of a Delta Gamma sorority?!

so many crotch kicks, so few months in the day; I hope this feature comes back next year
