You know what I realized... Daredevil is the luckiest Marvel character. He's been graced with some of the most amazing creative teams in history: Miller, Bendis/Maleev, Brubaker/Lark, Waid/Samnee, Soule, and now Zdarsky. All of these runs are unique, tell a unique story, and are all entertaining well written amazingly drawn runs. I need an omnibus of this run as soon as it ends (which hopefully more

Oh man, what an unfortunate time to release this issue. This could have been so much better if it was released instead of issue #81.

As it stands, this issue does a good job establishing Thomas's motivations. It gives us a much-needed explanation of what Thomas was doing all along and why he did it.

However, I can't say that the fact this issue came so late in the arc didn't more

So questions were answered. Plotholes were loved. Origins ans background were added. But hey that only means that King doesn't know what he is doing. That was the tale of a broken man and it was profound and touching. It give more depht to the overall run and it really prepare for the last showdown. Not particullary fan of the reverse narration but it was done correctly.

I wouldnt have a problem with a darker& more depressed version of Gotham, but I have a problem with the countless plotholes& with the awful dialogue in Kings run. It’s just so stupid to read. King also cant deal with criticism, he only wants praises & doesnt even care what fans don’t like about his run.
