Review of Daredevil #25

First of all, let’s take a moment to appreciate the fact that this is issue #25 of Mark Waid’s run on Daredevil. Even artist Chris Samnee, who came onboard later, now has twelve issues of Daredevil to his credit. Javíer Rodriguez, meanwhile, has been around since the very start, coloring almost every single issue of volume 3 thus far.

Review of Daredevil #21

This issue consists of two very different halves. The first half of the book is devoted to Daredevil dealing with 1) an angry mob of freed slaves, 2) the now mostly incapacitated Coyote and 3) the Spot, whom Daredevil manages to free from the strange contraption he was hooked up to. Chris Samnee draws a very creepy-looking “New Spot” with arms and legs sticking out everywhere

Review of Daredevil: End of Days #2

Daredevil: End of Days #2, written by Brian Bendis and David Mack, reminds us of many of the things that made the former’s previous work stand out. One of the strengths of the series so far is allowing Ben Urich to be the narrator and central character of the story.
