Review: ★★★★☆


Thanatophobia. The fear of death. Irony. It looks like Charles Soule is pulling out all the stops with Daredevil. The Death of Daredevil is how this particular issue is labeled. The issue opens up with Matt having death flash backs while he’s on the operating table. The issue doesn’t start our slow. It’s a heroic act that got him there in the first place. No spoilers. They can’t just kill him off the bat though. It changes Mat’st perspective on things in regards to how he’s handling the Kingpin issue. He points out to his partners that they are vigilantes so maybe they should break some laws to take down Mr Fisk. The book introduces an odd new villain that has yet to be named. The character has red crosses on his costume and throws bone knives. It’s an interesting introduction to be sure. Phil Noto’s art is still solid but I would question his coloring style here. It feels clouded. I felt like I was reading the comic in a haze. It’s almost like the digital work isn’t translating well to print. The book ends with a guest star that Soule has used before and it’s an interesting choice to bring the character back to pages. It’ll be interested to see how DD lands on his feet after this or just flat on his back, while we wait the next issue.
