I’ve not been a Daredevil fan in the past, but have never read any of the comics. When I had the opportunity to pick up 3 of the 7 volume series by Mark Waid I jumped.

For those that don’t know, Matt Murdock, the son of a boxer, lost his eyesight in a freak accident while saving an old man’s life. The accident left him blind, but also heightened his other senses along with adding a crude 360 degree radar sense. This sense over time has given him the ability to do things most could not. It has also given him the luxury of not having fear because he cannot see what he should fear.

The artwork was just ok for me. I’m used to a little more detail so I felt this was quite simple. It wasn’t bad and didn’t detract from the story, but it wasn’t my style.

The writing was good enough to finish the book and continue on to the next volume, but it just doesn’t excite me enough. The concept of a blind super hero cool, but the execution of the artwork detracted from the story.

  1. I’ve never read a Daredevil comic, but that would make sense as most of the comics I do read are DC. It is in an interesting character though, shame his movie, and this comic do not do him justice. Well, at least it was decent enough for you to want to read more.
