The second part of the hard-hitting new arc "To the Devil, His Due" is here, and Brubaker and Lark are just getting warmed up! As Daredevil fights to find the source of new and violent trouble in Hell's Kitchen, Matt Murdock struggles to piece his life back together. But when a woman from his past enters the picture, it could all go flying off the rails.

    Lark and Gaudino continue to deliver gorgeous realistic shots that fit the current crime orientation of the series. Although not as spectacular as previous Daredevil artists, their work focuses on the story and telling it well. As such, its a perfect complement to Brubakers scripts. Read Full Review

    This issue is par for the course for Brubaker's Daredevil, as the opening issues of his arcs often ask more questions than they answer, laying detailed groundwork for a satisfying finale whilst dropping hints that allow attentive readers to begin to piece the mystery elements together for themselves; this issue sees an unusually frequent emphasis on the word "think," for example, and Matt Hollingsworth's colouring frequently employs various shades of purple, although this could be subtle misdirection. Gaudiano and Lark's consistently strong artwork is perfectly-suited to the dark, grounded tone of the story (and they execute yet another well-choreographed action sequence this issue), and Brubaker's steady hand as a writer makes this one of the most reliably satisfying monthly superhero comics being published today.

    It will be interesting to see where this story goes. Its a decent story that really needs to have a big twist coming, and for some reason, I really think it does. If Marvel ever decides to bring Daredevil back to the silver-screen, I hope it is a TV show done in the Bendis/Maleev/Brubaker/Lark style because this issue proves that Daredevil is the Law & Order of the Marvel Universe. After all is said and done, I think this will turn out to be a story arc that you may find yourself going back to read again. Read Full Review

    Daredevil #96 is a steady and technically sound read. Brubaker is constructing an interesting mystery. Brubaker's Daredevil is a wonderful crime noir themed story. Daredevil is an excellent change of pace to all the universe spanning, time traveling, alternate reality hopping and universe shattering stories that you get on so many of the top titles on the market. I dig a street based urban hero with a more "realistic" fell that is based in the here and now. I definitely recommend giving Daredevil a try. Read Full Review
