The Devil in Cell-Block D: Part 2 (of 5)
The acclaimed new team of Brubaker and Lark ratchet the tension up a notch in their landmark second issue! The unthinkable has happened, and Matt Murdock is left stunned. As the strands of what's left of his life begin to fall to pieces, how will he react? This is Daredevil at his breaking point, and when he snaps, everyone in his way had better stand clear!

    It's a real compliment to say that this issue feels like a really good episode of Law & Order. In Daredevil #83, people try to do good, try to fight for justice, but always seem to fall short.

The only problems I am having with this new era for the title are the slightly "off" cover art and the already very ambiguous nature of the crucial plot development of Foggys death (which has already, by the second issue, been given an obvious out - should Brubaker choose to take it). Still, these are minor quibbles for a book which was always going to come under heavy scrutiny: on the evidence of the teams first two issues, were in for a ru Read Full Review

    At this point, with all the massive losses that Daredevil has sustained under Kevin Smith, Brian Michael Bendis and now Ed Brubaker, there is no possible way he can end up anything other than a psycho. This "deconstruction" of Daredevil and this dark storyline has been so extreme and has lasted for so long that it won't be realistic or believable when Matt is "saved." This is the only obvious end to the story since Marvel will not allow Daredevil to become another Punisher-type character. Read Full Review
