Daredevil By Mark Waid Vol. 2 (Daredevil Graphic Novel)
This, more than Punisher, was what launched Marvel Knights. Bringing Smith on was really controversial at the time as he was known as a comic fan, not so much a writer. But he surprised a lot of people with this run and there are still parts of it that are surprisingly good. Like his terrible handling of Karen Page and his obsession with Bullseye. Daredevil: Guardian Devil.
Punisher Vol 1: Welcome Back Frank. This is not the first time Punisher and Daredevil have crossed paths, but for my money, it is the definitive event. This brief encounter sets up at least three future arcs — entire storylines — for Daredevil comics and should be considered essential reading.
Marvel Knights Vol. Daredevil Vol. Because this is not a Daredevil book… this is a Matt Murdock book, and it is incredible. For a decade of real time. The end result is that the whole run both builds on continuity without requiring it for reading. Instead, you just build a life with this character while his falls apart.
If you really want, you could start reading Elektra around Daredevil Elektra: The Hand. Just to put this in perspective, the series was written during the Elektra solo movie years. I know, I tried to forget as well, but our past is always with us. Bullseye: Greatest Hits. Daredevil: Father. Daredevil vs. Daredevil: Redemption. Ed Brubaker does his best picking up the pieces of what Bendis had left for him. Brubaker does an admirable job adding black humor to the book and giving Daredevil allies at a time he feels his most alone. Helps explain the dueling Daredevils.

Daredevil, Volume 2 by Mark Waid
Suffering has been the emotional core of the Daredevil book ever since Frank Miller rescued him from the ash heap. His catholic guilt tormented him. His body betrayed him. His loved ones were hurt because of him. His whole life was a disaster, at all times. That is until Mark Waid got a hold of him. Waid took a lot out of those early, pre-Miller books and built a Matt Murdock who could struggle with him demons… and win. Best of all, this is a decision within the comic.
Murdock makes the choice to see the light. But is it an act? Is it just him running away from his problems? Khoi Pham Illustrator.

Daredevil and a busload of kids, most of them blind, wandering through a blizzard. Once again, Waid plays up what it's like to be blind, with or without radar sense. Good shit. Shortly thereafter, she's arrested for breaking into Horizon Labs. Since he knows she was framed, Spidey enlists Daredevil to help 7 - Daredevil takes some kids on a field trip and the bus wrecks in a blizzard.
Since he knows she was framed, Spidey enlists Daredevil to help him clear her name. This issue demonstrates why Spider-Man and Daredevil have always worked well together and contrasts their crime-fighting styles. It also emphasizes that Daredevil is also a lawyer. Also, cemeteries are being found vandalized and one of the graves affected is that of Battlin' Jack Murdock. That was pretty serpentine. The interplay between Spidey, Black Cat, and Daredevil was really enjoyable.
I like where things are going with Daredevil and the Black Cat. That's what Daredevil means to find out! Lots of good shit in this. Daredevil using a coffin as a raft. Mole Man dancing with a corpse. And the Black Cat has her paw in the cookie jar while Matt's underground. I love that Mark Waid is moving Daredevil away from the gritty crime corner of the Marvel Universe he's been trapped in for years. Meanwhile, what's happened with the Omega Drive? The battle with Mole Man was pretty great and the epilogue was also well done. I also liked how things went down with the Black Cat.
Turns out the word is out about the Omega Drive. Pyromania telling Matt his version of his fight with Daredevil while seeing how it really went down was a nice touch. Things are progressing nicely. I'm guessing the Omega Drive will be the focus of the next volume. Closing Thoughts: Mark Waid has done a lot to bring Daredevil out of the funk he's been in pretty much consistently since Frank Miller ran him through the meat grinder 30 years ago and into the Marvel Universe as a whole.
Aug 04, Anne rated it really liked it Shelves: read-in , buddy-read , graphic-novels , comics. Buddy Read with The Incredible Hulk! I've never found a Daredevil book that's excited me. Maybe I've never read the right title, by the right author, but nothing's ever made me go, Yeah! That guy is awesome! This one was kinda close, though. Instead of being on the moody Catholic guilt trip, Murdock seems a bit lighter and more optimistic. It starts with a quasi-touching little story about Matt taking some orphaned kids on an ill-fated journey to some camp.
Daredevil - Volume 2 Paperback Graphic Novel
Maybe it's not a camp. It was snowing How the hell should I know, I've lived in hot climates my entire life. Occasionally, we get a inch or two of the icky white stuff, and it's enough to make me want to immediately move to the tropics. Maybe he was taking them skiing? But giving kids pointy sticks and telling them to slide down a mountain sounds like a bad idea to me, so I'm going totally off-topic, aren't I? Orphans, bus, snow, blind chaperone. Not sure if that was the best idea anybody ever had. I mean, the least they could have done was send a nun along for the ride.
You know, just in case the bus driver had a heart attack, and the bus careened off the side of a mountain or something Lucky for Daredevil, these were the good kind of orphans as opposed to the evil kind of orphans , and they managed to drag his ass to safety. Moral of the story: Snow is bad, and blood loss is a bitch. I think I'm in the minority, but my favorite story was the one with Spider-Man. Black Cat has been arrested for stealing something, and Spidey asks Matt to help clear her name.
Cuz, for once, she didn't actually do it! It had more humor to it than the other two tales, and that's a big plus in my book. Besides that, I'm just a Spider-Man fan, and it was nice to see him again. After all that, Mole Man starts stealing bodies from a cemetery. And one of those bodies is Battlin' Jack Murdock's! Bum, Bum, Bum Turns out, the poor little dude just wants to dance with the corpse of a woman he used to work with topside. That's not creepy at all. Then Matt goes to visit Pyromania in prison to check on his living conditions.
I'm not sure about the back story between these two, but apparently DD sent him to jail. Murdock kicks his ass, and then agrees to represent him.
The End. Ok, not quite The End. The bad guys all want it, and Daredevil for some reason can't turn it over to the authorities. He sort of finds a way out of the mess. For now, anyway. In the end, I liked this one a lot. Especially for a DD title. If I can find more of Waid's run on this one, I'll definitely check it out.

I know that this is a shift in tone for Daredevil, from ultra-angst to something on the lighter side. I really like it. It makes Matt feel relatable, at least to a certain extent. If he were nothing but a ball of misery all the time, it wouldn't have much of an impact when his father's coffin vanishes underground. At any rate, I really like this version of Daredevil. May 09, Sam Quixote rated it really liked it. I have no desire to read yet another angst-y vigilante with "problems" book so it's great to see a superhero enjoying being a superhero for a change especially one who's been written as a depressed, sometime insane, and all-round gloomy guy for so long - the cover of issue 7, the Christmas issue, says it all.
Nowhere is the change in direction more apparent than in the opening story where Foggy reminds Matt that he's sat in his darkened office brooding, prompting him to emerge, smiling and wearing a "I'm Not Daredevil" shirt, flirting with the ladies and enjoying the party.
He also takes a group of blind kids on a trip which ends badly after the bus crashes and they're stranded in the snowy woods. This opening issue is definitely my favourite of the book. Worryingly, Waid takes Daredevil down the old dark ways again when Moleman and his Moloids plunder the graveyard where Matt's dad "Battlin'" Jack Murdock is buried so Daredevil descends to the world beneath the ground which looks like Hell. This was the weirdest story not least because Mole Man was a shlumpy scientist only now he wears a cheesy Silver Age outfit and is somehow matching Daredevil in combat!
But it's visually interesting and has this mild gothic horror vibe to it that's cool. The main story, as continued from the first book, is that Daredevil has a device called the Omegadrive, formerly the property of the Fantastic Four and looking like an FF badge which is a storage device that contains information on five of the world's biggest crime agencies Hydra, AIM, the Black Spectres, Agence' Byzantine and the Shadow Empire.
All five are after him and one of them enlists Black Cat, aka Felicia Hardy, to steal it from him. She and her old flame Spider-man cross over with Daredevil in a fun issue. Waid knows how to write Spidey really well and the dialogue between him and Daredevil is fantastic - you get a real sense of a history and a strong friendship there. I have some very minor complaints that didn't really detract from my enjoyment of the book. It ends in a very similar way to the end of the first book which again underlines Waid's unusual approach to the character and his treatment of the superhero in this series - but I kind of wish it didn't feel so much like the first book's ending.
Paolo Rivera's art is as wonderful as it was in the first book - his depiction of DD's radar sense is awesome - but I wasn't as convinced of the quality of the other artists on the book. Emma Rios drew Spidey with small, squinty eyes that looked like slits rather than full eyes which was odd, and Khoi Pham really goes overboard with Black Cat's cleavage, giving her massive knockers that are ready to pop out of her ridiculously low-cut one-piece at any moment!
I wasn't fully on board with the series after the first book but this second book has won me over. Matt's character shines through strongly in this book and there's enough variety and action in his adventures to keep the book from becoming slow and stale. An excellent, upbeat and exciting Daredevil adventure - I'm starting to see why it's such an acclaimed series. View all 4 comments. Sep 27, Jonathan rated it really liked it Shelves: comics-graphic-novels , marvel-comics , reads , mark-waid. I like what Waid is setting up with this volume.
The art is perfectly matched to the hornhead and his powers. Plus who doesn't love a good team-up? Short though it may have been. Feb 26, Kemper rated it really liked it Shelves: superhero , comics , , marvel. This is the kind of stuff that makes comic fans a bunch of disgruntled malcontents who can never be happy.
Then I planned up to write up yet another one of my witty and insightful reviews telling the fine folks of Goodreads my opinion about it. But the edition here lists it only as covering 1 -6 with Vol. I cannot find any edition on Goodreads that actually covers what was in the book I read.
Goddamnit, I just want to read about a blind lawyer who spends his nights acting as a vigilante in red tights beating up criminals. Why does it have to be so complicated? Rampant cheating of the system! Onto the review: Frank Miller deserves a lot of credit for making comics more mature and darker in content. Frank Miller also deserves a lot of blame for making comics more mature and darker in content.
Just as countless creators spent years trying to make Batman as grim as possible after DKR and Year One , almost every writer after the Daredevil Born Again storyline seemed to follow the Miller template of destroying Murdock every few years. Even popular runs by Bendis and Brubaker followed the Miller Maxim that Daredevil must be forever picking up the pieces of a shattered life.
And that made for some interesting stories but at this point, what else could you do to the poor bastard? Now he saves the day and gives the bride a big kiss that ends up on the front page of The Daily Bugle. The only fly in the ointment is that the secret is still out that Matt Murdock is Daredevil and although his legal maneuvering has kept that from being officially acknowledged as fact, it also makes it impossible for him to argue a case in court since any opposing lawyer can simply point out his reputed history as a masked vigilante.
As a long time Daredevil fan, it made me stupidly happy to see Matt have some fun again. It also tones down the grungy street criminal factor and makes DD seem like a part of the routine Marvel universe again by having him mix it up with super-villains like Mole Man and team-up with Spider-Man as they try to clear Black Cat from a robbery accusation.
