The Mind Stone has reemerged into the universe in the middle of the New York underworld...and in the most unlikely of hands. Can even Daredevil keep Hell's Kitchen from falling under the influence of an Infinity Stone's immense power?
Rated T+

    INFINITY COUNTDOWN: DAREDEVIL #1 is a solid story and one that connects to the bigger crossover happening. I wish there was more time to follow all the threads the issue lays out. Read Full Review

    Infinity Countdown: Daredevil only lightly connects to the main Infinity Countdown story, but it is a solid one-off tale focusing on DD and Turk. The pacing is solid, the premise is realized well, and the art looks great. This one earns a recommendation. Check it out. Read Full Review

    "Infinity Countdown: Daredevil" #1 is an oddly endearing Infinity Countdown rabbit hole starring someone who will likely not play much of a role in the series' larger context. Read Full Review

    Writer Gerry Duggan has put together a good setup for the future of the upcoming Infinity event, allowing a cosmic story to affect characters on a smaller, more local scale. Read Full Review

    Even for readers engaged with all of "Infinity Countdown", it's difficult to find a reason for reading this one-shot. Read Full Review

    The lack of any clear purpose or narrative thrust makes following the adventures of Matt Murdock a frustrating endeavor to say the least. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Branden Murray May 21, 2018

    Infinity Countdown: Daredevil is a blatant event title cash grab and suffers due to the fact it's an uninteresting slog to read through with art that isn't eye-catching at all. It's basically a story that didn't need to be told and accomplishes nothing all for the price tag of $4.99. Read Full Review

    Welcome to the Oblivion Bar where the first round is on me and the pretzels are free! Be warned: like the pickled eggs at the bar, this issue is going to get SPOILED rotten.

    We open with a recap of the connection between Daredevil and Turk Barrett, who was once Stilt Man. Turns out, as Matt Murdock was on his way to court, he saw Turk there as well. More importantly, he physically saw the mind gem on his staff. He didn’t see it in “radar form”, he could see it glowing. So instantly, he knew something was up.

    So, he followed him to see that Turk basically used the mind gem in court to morph the judges mind to have his friend be not guilty. Well, this sparked the interest in Daredevil and he went to track Turk do more

    This one-shot chronicles how loser thug Turk Barrett stumbled across the Mind Stone and how Daredevil almost but not quite retrieved it from him. It's a fun, clever, but thoroughly non-essential bit of background for this year's Infinity Mess. The art is a major missed opportunity; considerable talent is assembled to produce a very non-memorable set of visuals. This would be a severe disappointment as a full-price purchase, but it's a nice collection or Marvel Unlimited read.

    I wasn't planning on picking the tie-ins, but this one got added to my pull list -- guess I'm picking them up after all. However, this wasn't a perfect issue by any chance - it's perfectly skippable, and provides only some minor background information about one of the stone's. The characterisation is decent, but there's definitely nothing you would miss without reading this one.

    I wasn't sure to take this one. But the sneak peak push me to try. And that wasn't a bad reading. Poor Matthew between this or Superior Iron-Man have a hard time keeping his mind for himself.

    Cover - Nice cover & somewhat related 1.5/2
    Writing - Not bad. Not good too, but that was enjoyable. I was very sad for Grotto. I hate daredevil for leaving him behind like that ! 2/3
    Arts - Not the strongest art there is. But he do the job. And I like when who he used Matthew super-sens with the gem. 2.5/3
    Feeling - It was not a "you need to read it" story. But that wasn't a bad one too. 1/2

    Waste of time and money with the Stilt Man as the antagonist. Terrible.
