    I don't know all that much about Typhoid Mary beyond the basic, split personality assassin gimmick, but this doesn't make her return to these pages any less powerful, as that final page is easily one of the most harrowing cliffhangers Brian Michael Bendis has unleashed upon us thus far. The book also brings the Kingpin back into the mix, and I can't tell you how much his return has bumped up my interest in this title, which was already at a ridiculously high level before. Simply put this is the best title coming out of Marvel, and this is actually say quite a bit considering Marvel is currently undergoing a creative upswing on most of its titles. This book is telling a fairly ambitious, multi-layered bit of crime-fiction, that is so densely plotted that it almost feels like a novel. However, thanks to the opening recap page and the smartly written dialogue, the material is never confusing, so there's no reason to not be reading this title. Read Full Review

    While there remain a number of dangling plots from past storylines, this is still a great jumping-on point for new readers. Bendis does an effective job of re-establishing the malevolence of the Kingpin and his manipulative ways. There is some excellent character development in the Milla and Matt relationship; Bendis does a great job of addressing why anyone would want to date a costumed vigilante. Maleev's art is very, very strong this issue; each character is wonderfully articulated with clear, readable emotions. This is another great beginning to a Daredevil story arc. Read Full Review
