The streets of Hell's Kitchen are caught in a gang war, and as Matt Murdock tries to protect them, the pieces of his life that he's tried so hard to put back together begin to tear apart at the seams. It's chaos and destruction as "To the Devil, His Due" races toward a shocking conclusion next issue!

    In many ways, this feels like the climax of one of the arc's major story threads - and we've still got a whole issue to go. I can't wait to see where Brubaker takes the story next, and this issue is bookended by two pages which hint at a larger plot involving the mystery mastermind of the past few issues which promises to make Matt's life even harder: just the way we like it. Publishers of superhero comics should look to Daredevil if they want to see how a monthly superhero title is done properly: no overly-complicated crossovers, no marketing gimmicks, just a straightforward and very compelling story, realised with intelligent and exciting writing and great-looking artwork which really brings the script to life.

    While this arc may not carry the same ammunition as the arc that took place since back in the day with Bendis, Brubaker manages to tell a good story and also plant the seeds for when he sends Matt Murdocks life back to hell. Its difficult not to like this title because its one of Marvels best. For any Daredevil fan, now is a great time to be on the band wagon with amazing creative teams and great crime-noir stories away from Civil War and World War Hulk. I cant wait to see the conclusion of this arc for what it is going to bring to the table. Read Full Review

    Lark and Gaudino continue to create artwork that complements Brubakers plot very well. I do have one caution though. While their work is consistent, when compared to Alex Maleev, it feels somewhat inferior. Thankfully, what they lack in polished looks, they make up in storytelling - one of Maleevs weakness.

    Daredevil #98 was another solid read. Brubaker is employing his usual steady and measured style of storytelling to gradually build to a much large and interesting storyline. Daredevil may not always be an incredible read, but it is very rarely a poor read. Daredevil is certainly one of Marvel's most dependable titles on the market. Read Full Review
