Daredevil has been arrested for murder!! Foggy comes to his rescue, but even he can't stop the wheels of justice from turning.
In my opinion, this comic doesn’t get enough attention. If Wizard Magazine was still around I’m sure it would be included in their Top 10 comics every month, but that magazine is long gone, so it’s up to us to spread the word via social media, and from what I’ve seen we’re all falling down on the job when it comes to that. Author Chip Zdarsky is quickly cementing his place in the list of names that people will name as top creators on this book. Last issue we saw Daredevil arrested for murder and this issue deal with the nuts and bolts of how to process a superhero as a criminal. How exactly would the police do this? Mask on or off? What about fingerprints? It’s a really unique take on this issue and it’s really entertaining. As always, there’s plenty of supervillains there to cause trouble. All in all, a very well-written issue.
But the good stuff doesn’t stop there. Artist Francesco Mobili, along with inker Victor Olazaba, brings some amazing artistry. Walking a fine line between realism and comic book art, they make every panel look like it should, and truly tell the story with their art. What most impressed me was Daredevil’s costume. It’s not the standard skin-tight spandex uniform, instead, they give him ninja-type pants, which logically would be the type of pants that DD would wear, because he’s constantly doing high kicks and flips and every kind of acrobatic move that you can think of during a fight. It makes sense and looks great. What more can you ask?
This is a straight-up awesome comic. It hooked me from the first panel and I don't think I breathed until I finished the book. And the art was just as good. DD gets a slight adjustment to his costume that I think everybody will get behind, This book is worth both your time and money.
