    I'm really enjoying Daredevil. Mark Waid has really made this a title to watch, and as long as things continue to be this good, I definitely won't be taking my eyes off it. I'd suggest you do the same. Read Full Review

    "Daredevil" is rapidly shaping up to be one of the best series at Marvel, and this issue helps cement that position. This is a great little one-off comic, and if you haven't checked out the new series it's an excellent sampler. Great stuff from everyone involved. Read Full Review

    Daredevil continues to be one of the best books available today, with great story telling and beautiful art and is proof that you dont need a major reboot to make a character fresh and accessible. Read Full Review

    Paolo Rivera's art continues to be a highlight of this series. His clever way of incorporating sounds into the artwork helps not only enhance the environment, but also gives the entire issue the unique flavor of the blind Daredevil. The fact that all of the children are blind allows for some hilarious images despite their dire circumstances: Matt leads them through a blizzard, his sonar sight disabled by the snow, with his bright red costume showing from underneath his tattered clothes.

    There's also a great opening scene between Matt Murdock and Kristen McDuffie at the Nelson & Murdock holiday party where the lawyer shows up in horns and a red and white hoodie proclaiming he's no super-hero. I think the kids would disagree. Best of the week. Read Full Review

    Quite a satisfying issue that shone a bit of a light on DD's heart, much in the same way as Jenkins recently did with some powerfully simple and effective stories with Thor. Read Full Review

    Paolo Rivera really steps it up here. Either that or I’m just a sucker for a really well done snow scene. I enjoyed how Rivera turns the weather from tranquil to violent slowly over several panels. There were also specific panels that I felt really pushed the story along. Page four, third panel from the left. It’s a simple pencil of Matt Murdock looking at his prize from the earlier battle. The last panel on page 10, a shot of Daredevil trying to use his radar is another gem. Rivera uses his bold lines and colors against the details of weather, which gives the entire issue serious depth. Daredevil #7 is a filler issue, no doubt, but the talents of Waid and Rivera help to keep it above the standard fare. Read Full Review

    Those trades, and any future issues of Brody's Ghost are looking mighty enticing, though. Read Full Review
