This week in our uncanny Unlimited Highlights I got to talk about one of my current favorite series hitting newsstands, Daredevil! Post-Shadowlands I wasn’t sure where Matt Murdock was going. He went off and did a little soul searching, kicked some ass, then he decided Hell’s Kitchen was still the place to be. That’s when Waid took over and charted a course for the crimson clad crusader that has remained solid over 25 issues. It doesn’t hurt that he has an absolutely crack team of phenomenal artists backing him up, Chris Samnee, Paolo Rivera, Khoi Pham, killers all.
My favorite issue this week? I mean it’s gotta be Daredevil #1. The artistic use of onomatopoeia in that issue, and really the entire run, is really just beautiful but that was the first I had seen it so I’m definitely giving it the mention. I mean just look at that cover! Ok that’s a tiny image, click the link and you’ll see I swear! Not only that but it sets the stage for this new Matt, one who has decided to be happy, against all odds and in the face of his own brutal history.
If you haven’t gotten out and grabbed up #25 absolutely do. Matt goes up against a new foe with his own set of super senses and kung fu power and is pushed to his limits. And go check out Unlimited Highlights folks, you’ll be glad you did!
