There sure is a hell of a lot of damn frivolous cursing which makes Matt come across as a pretty piss poor priest. It just seems strange that he’s being portrayed as a man of the cloth without the maturity or discipline to speak in a more reverent manner. Other than that it was a good enough first issue, plenty of intrigue to explain what happened to bring him here going forward, but I hope they more

"Somehow." That's the one word "explanation" on the splash page for how MM returned from the dead, and with total amnesia.
"Somehow" Matt, with no memory, no training, no ID, becomes a priest, working in a place that calls for close contact with children, no less. That's some screening process!

WHAT LIES BEYOND THE SEA? What is a life filled with immense loss and pain? A life watching the world wither away as the ALZ-113 virus consumes humanity? For some, it is an existence of boiling rage that breeds contempt, cruelty and violence. It breeds the Exercitus Viri. As Juliana and Omatete set sail to transfer a thousand apes from the Internat...

SPOILER Daredevil cutting out his own eye was WAAAAY over the top. The backup story was better than I expected in that it was just a fun story, a nice change of pace from the perpetual beat downs that have characterized Zdarsky’s run over all.

Zdarsky is a good writer, but he continues to do things that are inexplicable. DD cuts out his eyes in front of the Stromwyns, who don't know that DD has radar sense, so why would they make a deal with a powerless blind man? DD enters the meeting declaring he's not there for revenge, but then takes (illegal) actions that show he definitely was. As far as I know, the world still believes the world more

The story itself was ok, but Zdarsky went out of it his way to insult cops and the American flag. A good writer can tell a story in such a way that even if you disagree with a particular statement, it at least gets you thinking about it or can help you see things in a different light. Here neither the comment about cops nor the comment about the American flag were inherent to the storyline nor con more

Mediocre at best. We’ve seen Theta for nine issues now, she still has no personality, there is still no reason to care about her as a character, and the story is taking a long time to get where it’s going, if it’s going anywhere at all. I can almost guarantee this will be future dollar bin filler

I hope this picks up because the potential for a great story is there but this issue just jumped between so many different times and places without really going anywhere that this was the comic book equivalent of a wheel spinning frantically while stuck in the mud. I do hope we get to go back to the future world the original movies were set in somewhere over the course of this series.

Exciting issue with a climactic battle. For a supposed lifelong devoted Catholic Matt misunderstands fundamental tenets of Christianity when he says “no creature is born evil.” This would undermine the need for a savior which is a foundation of the entire Christian religion. However, I do appreciate that Zdarsky seems to have made a good faith effort in trying to reasonably portray someone com more

I’m baffled by the modern moral notion that insulting someone’s religion is bigoted unless the insults are directed towards Christians or Jews. I found Buccellato going out of his way to make fun of Jesus detracted from what has otherwise been a very entertaining series.

Zdarsky seems to be stretched too thin. This issue does little more than express Zdarsky’s personal politics. The plot does not move forward in any way, and his politics are expressed in a logically inconsistent way, which is pretty annoying. IMHO - politics should be left out of ongoing series like Daredevil. Leave personal politics for indies, anthologies and limited series

I dunno. I think DD's gone over the deep end.

And beating up law enforcement? And then it all turns out to be unnecessary because Matt Murdock got a court order stopping the eviction anyway. (When? How? Matt hasn't been la more

superstan52 highlights why personal politics should be left out of a title like Daredevil. Real world politics place the story in the real world and makes the suspension of disbelief difficult. I’ve loved Zdarsky’s Daredevil run up until this point. This issue was bad. I expect the next will pick up again. It’s ok that Zdarsky wrote a bad issue. They aren’t all going to be good
