Great issue.

Great.

Sometimes that word is used hastily to show or express a mere temporary feeling of elation or awe. Hell, I use it all of the time without respect for its true meaning. Great. Grand. Immense. Striking. Impressive. Amazing. This was DARDEVIL #116.

When I can read a comic and feel the character … I mean actually feel what the character must be feeling, it is a wonderful comic. When the art from a comic, forces me into a state of mind or a particular mood, that is also a wonderful comic. When both art and words combine to envelop my mind and bring forth emotional connection, that is a great comic. Again, that was DAREDEVIL #116.

The last comic that made me feel this way was the third issue of SILVER SURFER – REQUIEM (though THOR came close with issue 11), but this one truly hit me even harder. I mean, I am suppose to “feel” for a dying hero like the Surfer, but to “feel” for the character contained within these pages … that is something special. That is something great.

Thank you, Brubaker. Thank you, Aja. Thank you, Gaudiano and Villarrubia. I can’t wait for issue #117.

Probably not.

It hit me nice and hard, but ... Will it others? I'd like to think so, but as it is not an original idea (hardly) and is very lacking in action, I don't think it will raise the pulse of most readers. Sadly.

For me ... Yes, it was that good. But I tend to like very subdued, less action involved comics that leave me looking forward to the future.

Is this the Kingpin one? I skipped the Lady Bullseye arc but I had to come back for the big man.

Oh yeah.


I skipped the Lady Bullseye arc...

I am a thinking you may want to change that. It was very good and it plays into current events.

I'm still waiting for Amazon to ship my copy of the Daredevil Brubaker Omnibus. I keep reading that it is on par with the Bendis/Maleev run.

I hate that they released the Brubaker Omnibus before the second Bendis one. It makes no sense, since Bendis' last arc leads directly into Brubaker's first.

I would say it's not as good as the Bendis/Maleev run, but still very good.

Probably because Brubaker is still on the book. I figure that those who buy the Omnibus will immediately jump in on the ongoing monthly.

A bit of a far stretch I suppose but it's the only reason I can think of.

Issue 117 was another good one.  This issue brings the players together.  Do you think Dakota's really gone for good?  Me neither.   Wink

Nah, Dakota'll be back.

Hopefully....

After dropping the book before Lady Bullseye, realizing it was getting awesome, and jumping back in last issue, I can honestly say it's great to be back. Brubaker's Kingpin is the freaking man. Can't wait to see how them working together will work.

So, what'd you all think?  I admit I haven't been following this book, but still managed to pick up the story alright.  I'm real interested to see where the go now with  SPOILER...

Matt taking over the Hand.  Could make some neat years of DD.  I really hope Marvel gives Diggle and Tan some years to slowly develop this direction.  It COULD be cool and I'd like to see Murdock in a different direction for a while.

I liked it.  Definately sends Matt in an interesting new direction if done right.

What do you mean #500?Huh

Man, I just finished reading the Brubaker/Lark Daredevil Omnibus (which kicks mucho ass by the way) and it only prints up till issue #105 !!!!

And I thought those Ex Machina editions were running absurdly late behind the monthlies.  Wink

Brian, after issue 11something, the total number of Daredevil ongoing issues ever hit 500,and so Marvel renumbered the series to recognize this.

Yeah HULK, AMAZING, THOR, CAPTAIN AMERICA, DAREDEVIL ... all went back to original numbering ... for now.

And yes, I am very excited to see where Matt goes now as leader of the one organization he really despised. Hope Diggle is up to the task.
