    While most of the artist who work on this issue have no real past connection to the character of Daredevil, they are all fine artists who turn in some lovely visuals. First off we have Michael Golden who is in fine form as he delivers what is largely a dialogue scene between Nick Fury and Matt. We then get a lovely bit of painted art from Greg Horn, though I do have to say his Peter Parker looked a bit off. P. Craig Russell offers up a nice Central Park meeting with Captain America, that manages to offer up the best presentation of Brian Michael Bendis' back and forth dialogue style. The Green Arrow art team steps in to deliver the heated meeting between Daredevil and the Punisher with the proper sense of urgency, while Chris Bachalo shows that he's the ideal artist for any impending Doctor Strange projects, as he perfectly captures magical mystery of the good doctor's inner sanctum. We also get several pinup shots, with Frank Quitely's ninja battle being my personal favourite. Read Full Review

    Although a couple of continuity issues are thrown up, they will only affect the most die-hard fans enjoyment of the issue. Its a great jumping-on point for new readers, taking us through every major event since (and even before) Bendis and Maleev began their regular tenure on the title, and serves to add new depth to old scenes for regular readers, even taking the time to set up the next few issues story arc in a final epilogue. Well worth a read, even with the increased price tag. Read Full Review
