    This is the book I never knew I really, really wanted to read. Daredevil is a reader's character, enabling the reader to step into his boots. Many readers, myself included, can find relativity through Dakota North's words, "Y'know for a smart guy, Matt. . . you can do some truly idiotic things." Can't we all? One of the most idiotic things you could do would be to ignore such a classic story in the making as is taking shape in "Daredevil". This story is just ramping up, and it's not too late to get in and buckle up for what looks like one hell of a ride. Read Full Review

    Visually, it all works out. I remember when Daredevil looked like but a worm next to the kingpin. Its not the case now it seems. The cover shows them at about the same size. Its not clear with the inside art, as Daredevil is constantly slouching. Its kind of odd too that he would do so instead of measuring up to the man he has come to call his arch nemesis.

    By now most have heard that Ed Brubaker is handling over the reins of this book to Andy Diggle. From the looks of it, he's getting ready to deliver his craziest story yet. If I had to guess, we're about to see a story every bit as brilliant as "Devil in Cell Block D." Read Full Review

    So, why the average 3 bullet score? The strength of the previous issue has something to do with it as Daredevil #116 is a great character piece, a change in art and a great prologue that builds up anticipation for what's to come. This issue though is one of transition, moving the players where they need to be in preparation. This is still good comics though with strong writing and art and the arc promises to be a memorable one. Also going on the recent news that Andy Diggle is taking over the book this summer, this story arc has the potential to be a great send off for Brubaker. Read Full Review
