    My only worry is that it giving the team a five-star review so early in the arc might leave me nowhere to go when they blow me away at the end of it. To say any more about this particular issue would be to spoil the surprises for the uninitiated, and I wouldnt want to do that. If you havent read it already, grab a copy and start reading this title. Whereve you been? This is a genre-defining run which is bound to be remembered in the same breath as other classics in the years to come. And after a slight sag in the teams run for a few issues Bendis and Maleev have really hit their stride and again come up with career-best work. Read Full Review

    This issue adds to the growing number of Bendiss Daredevil stories in which we barely glimpse the hero in costume. Here, the DD peaking out from Murdocks half-opened shirt is all we are granted. The only typical superhero action occurs sixty years in the past, and ends with a forgotten costumed crusaders brutal death. Under Bendiss pen, Daredevil has become a kind of meta-superhero exploration. As in a Hitchcock film, the fact that Murdock is Daredevil is simply the McGuffin, the unimportant detail that brings the characters together and creates the impetus for action. Fans of superhero comics may find this insufferable, but with no shortage of straightforward baddie-bashing titles on the horizon, surely we can see the value in a unique examination of a man who also happens to be Daredevil.

    where the Gladiator prepares to behead Matt is a wonderfully ominous visual. Read Full Review

    For now, though, I like what Im seeing. Ive been buying Daredevil since issue #9, and I dont see myself dropping the book anytime soon. Its usually a good series, and this a good story. Read Full Review

    Alex Maleev is a terrific partner for Bendis. This issue contains two different flashbacks, and Maleev does a brilliant job of using different styles and color schemes for the present day, the recent past and the deep past. Hes really adept at faces and body language; really, Bendis couldnt ask for a better artist for his type of story. Read Full Review

    Also interesting: In the present day, an unwilling Gladiator (seen trying to go straight even in the past) may be Matts best hope, but, knowing Bendis, the bonds of the past are pretty hard to break for anyone. This arc explores that sense of inevitability with strong sequences that trace an ongoing enmity between two big players in Hells Kitchen. Read Full Review

    I really found it hard to write something about this comic, hard to form an opinion. There is nothing really wrong with it. Its just that I have found it hard to enjoy, and thats not because of the different artwork styles (which are pretty cool) or the writing (which is as good as ever). I guess the problem is with everything that happened to Matt Murdoch lately, I find this situation a little boring. Read Full Review
