The meat of this issue is a beautiful drawn yet obviously rushed fight scene between Matt and some of his oldest enemies, and it makes no sense. Tenfingers was there even though Muse killed him earlier in the series. Ikari was present even though he died back in Mark Waid’s run. Gladiator was their even though he and Matt were on good terms. Great last page though

Death of Daredevil is shaping up to be another Daredevil vs Kingpin classic. Although I find Vigil extremely lame, I do love me some Elektra. Speaking of Elektra, this was bound to happen: Matt slept with Elektra. Soule had gone his entire run without Matt hooking up with a girl before this issue, and knowing Matt, that is no small feat. Anyways things look like they are wrapping up and I’m lovi more

This is just... weird. Make no mistake, Daredevil 606 is a perfectly paced issue and Phil Noto is by far the best artist yet. But why suddenly make Mike Murdock real? He’s been a joke of Matt’s imagination since the Stan Lee days in the 60s but Soule made him a real character. Just... weird

We finally figure out why the Hand is attacking New York, and it’s because Blindspot stole the Beast’s power to fight Muse, and the Hand are back for revenge. Daredevil and Blindspot fight ninjas into the precinct only to find a huge gap in the building while Foggy covers for Matt back at city hall. Pacing is a little slow and the art isn’t as good as Garney’s or Landini’s

Daredevil 597 is a perfectly paced and drawn issue, and I can’t emphasize enough how great Stefano Landini’s art is. He’s the best artist of the series. Wilson Fisk is the most intimidating villain thus far, and he is drawn incredibly realistic.

Kingpin vs Daredevil never gets old, but I guess they’re partners now?

I did like Luke and Maya teaming up with Matt again, reminded me of the Bendis days. Anyways, the story itself, which is Matt trying to end all crime in the city as a lawyer and as Daredevil, seemed pretty uninteresting to me. It’s basically that time when Matt became Kingpin in Bendis’ run, but this time he’s wearing black, so I guess it’s different
