The Devil in Cell-Block D: Part 3 (of 5)
We've all seen Daredevil pushed too far, seen what happens when he pushes back, and we know it always ends in tears. Now, with the death of Foggy Nelson plaguing his every waking moment, Matt, blaming himself, runs wild in Rykers, determined to find out who put his best friend at the end of a knife. This is Daredevil as you've never seen him before, unplugged from his own sense of right and wrong, alone in the cold walls of the system he's spent his life defending, and the only thing on his mind is vengeance! From award-winning creators Ed Brubaker and Michael Lark.

    In The End: So I'm guessing that the Punisher killed the pimp so he would get thrown into jail. I'm also guessing that he did so because he has some interest in Matt Murdock. I loved the reaction to the beat cop when Frank gave himself up. He called for back-up. I don't know why. Unless they are corrupt, the Punisher hasn't made a habit of killing police officers. It was a great end to the issue though and definitely made coming back next month mandatory. Things are only going to get worse for Matt from here on out, and I for one am glad for it.

    And if you haven't jumped on the boat yet, do yourself a favor and put this book on your pull list, as well as scrounge up any back issues you can find. You'll thank me later. Read Full Review

    Once of my concerns is that Ed Brubaker is going to have to be careful that hes not over-burdening himself with too many characters, as by the end of the issue weve already got the Kingpin, Turk, Hammerhead, the Owl and Bullseye under Rykers roof, along with all manner of minor gangsters and villains who have been interspersed between the bigger players. Hes also got to make sure that he doesnt neglect the many subplots which are furthered this issue, as Ben Urich and Dakota Norths search for the new Daredevil could run the risk of becoming a tiresome wild goose chase if not handled correctly, and little time is given to the ongoing thread which deals with the political machinations of the director of the FBI. The other side of the coin, however, is that Brubaker has handled all of these elements very well up to this point, and theres no reason to imagine that hell slip up now. All the pieces are in place for a barnstorming second half of the arc, and Im hoping that the wri Read Full Review

    Im not saying this team is better than Bendis and Maleev. Im saying their style is better suited to this story. Its a good, different style, and I hope to see them on the book for a long time to come. Read Full Review

    Lark and Gaudiano's artwork is perfect for this title. This isn't normally my style of art. But, any artist can be good as long as you find him the right title. Daredevil is the right title for this artwork. If this was X-Men, Avengers, Iron Man, JLA, JSA, etc, then I would not be happy with the art. But, on Daredevil this art is absolutely perfect. I wouldn't want any other art on this title. Lark and Gaudiano's artwork captured Brubaker's tone. This art adds to the darkness, chaos and insanity that is taking place in this title. This art definitely makes Daredevil a more powerful read. Read Full Review
