The first story arc from the creative team of Andy Diggle (THUNDERBOLTS) and Roberto De La Torre (IRON MAN) reaches its shattering climax. Backed-up by the ruthlessly loyal ninja army known as The Hand, Daredevil declares war on a murderous cadre of dirty NYPD cops -- and Hell's Kitchen is the battleground! But can Foggy Nelson and Dakota North find out who's really behind the recent spiral of violence before the city burns? Rated T …$2.99

    I missed Daredevil when I ended up boycotting Brubaker's run for his treatment of Matt's marriage and fridging of his wife. It's great to be reading it again and Diggle is certainly making his mark on a series that has been defined by a veritable who's who list of writers before him. Read Full Review

    De La Torre is great. I like how his work feels rainy and continues to give everything Daredevil related a unique look that cannot be found in most other super hero books. Ive said it before. DC Comics had an opportunity to make Green Arrow a Daredevil type of book but failed after Brad Meltzers run. Here Marvel Comics keeps to the right formula with edging stories and iconoclastic artists. Read Full Review

    What an inspired storyline twist, one that I didn't see coming at all. Read Full Review

    As I said earlier, Daredevil is far more exciting for me than the last few years of the book. Diggle took a Brubaker idea and is running with it, and I hope he keeps going in these new direction because Matt Murdock may finally evolve from the Born Again era he’s been stuck in for so long.

    Ultimately, though, the book feels dark for its own sake rather than because the character or plot demands it, and that makes for quite a hollow reading experience. I'm still enjoying some of the secondary elements of the book, and I'm sure there's a great story to be told about Matt Murdock taking leadership of the Hand and using it as a force for good--but for me, this isn't it.

    Diggles writing doesnt keep up. His scene to scene work is good, but the plotting in this issue is mechanical and clichd. Hopefully, he plans to go somewhere interesting in the future and subvert the story conventions hes falling prey to and this issue will take on new meaning in retrospect, but, taken on its own merits, its not good plotting.
