  1. I can’t say enough good about what Waid, Rivera and Martin are doing on Daredevil right now. It’s a winner. It’s also a welcome break from the bleakness of the books during the Bendis/Brubaker decade, which I enjoyed for large stretches, but eventually left me asking, “Could Daredevil maybe win every once in a while?”

    As it turns out, he can.

  2. Rivera is doing amazing work on Daredevil. He’s an excellent complement to Waid. That shot of Daredevil making a snow angel against a Frank Miller Hell’s Kitchen background is just pure awesome. I sure hope Matt Murdock wasn’t driving that bus!

  3. This is the best Marvel or DC book on the stands and the only one I look forward to every month. This is a superhero comic done right. Everyone’s at top form on this one.

  4. so glad waid & co. got rid of the “moody bastard” daredevil of the last few years and returned d.d. to his roots. top-notch artwork by rivera and martin. it’s all good.

  5. I love it. This should be the model for every Marvel book. Great art, clear storytelling, great stories. Continuity as a tool and not an impediment. Love it.

  6. “This should be the model for every Marvel book” I hope you didn’t mean that literally. The last thing we need is every comic to start imitating Mark Waid and Mr. Rivera’s storytelling. Marvel’s publishing division just needs to get rid of all the marketers, and just focus on telling good stories and not on growth, because let’s face it, they don’t know how to grow their readership in a sustainable manner. I don’t know why they keep trying. I know we live in a world where EVERYTHING is expected to grow,but still.

  7. I’m not a big fan of all things spandex, but Waid’s Daredevil is a breath of fresh air among an entire market full of dull, emo, or catatonic characters.

    The illusion of change in Daredevil works well. There’s continuity but it’s baggage and Matt is trying to put it behind him –-literally.
