Well, this will be a short one, but I hope to post further updates tonight. In the meantime, here are the three reviews I was able to find of Magdalena/Daredevil #1. This one-shot seems to be getting good reviews so far, so my initial skepticism may have been unwarranted. If you haven’t seen the preview, I suggest looking at the preview/review at ComicVine. The other reviews come from The Girls Entertainment Network (yes, “girls” is missing an apostrophe, it’s not me, I promise) and The Quarter Bin.

Okay, that’s all folks! I haven’t read this yet, so if any of you have, feel free to stop by here and leave a comment on what you thought of it.

  1. I’ve read it and I knda liked it.
    Phil Hester does a good job on writing DD’s senses. Nothing original but well-done and emphasizing DD’s singularity.
    There are also some cool lines :
    “Faith isn’t about clinging to beliefs. Faith is about fighting for hope.”
    Hester’s DD is nicely done though he draws the billy-club holster on the right leg instead of the left one and the shape of DD’s boots look a bit unpractical.
    About the pacing : I felt that the story might have needed one or two pages more but the plot, though simple, is ok and DD gets a “heroic moment” at the end of the issue (you know, the kind of scene you enjoy the most as a kid, when all seems to be lost and the hero overcomes the adversity to save the day).
    All in all, a cool stand-alone issue.

  2. Read it. Didn’t like it.

  3. Thanks for your input guys. I read it too and I stand by my so-so assessment. I felt that DD was written well and in character, but I’m not at all a fan of these kinds of themes, especially not in this book. The plot is a little far-fetched to say the least and I don’t know more about the Magdalena now than I did before I read it. Not that bad, but ultimately forgettable.
