So, has Marvel finally found the book Soule is perfect for? Will Daredevil get richer with an another excellent run under his belt?
backpedaling on basically everything Waid did and resetting his secret identity and lawyer status in New York was a total copout and complete BS, but if you can get past this, it was really good. As it's own thing, it's great.
And I'm gonna be honest and say New York bores me. I like when more heroes operate in locations other than New York. So I was perfectly fine with DD not being in New York. Not that I don't find the book appealing, it does appeal to me somewhat. Even though it has somewhat of an Iron Fist feeling to it.
I'm a huge fanboy of horn head and even I know its too soon to tell.
It could all go downhill once its passed his first two planned stories? Who knows.
Issue 1 was superb. Issue 2 was just okay.
but what the fuck is wrong with you people? We've had a red Daredevil long enough. The change of color really distinguishes the change in tone and separates it from Waid's previous run. Daredevil changes colors more often than a lot of heroes. I wouldn't be surprised if he'll go back to red eventually within this run anyways
Agreed. Why mess with perfection?
I don't like that they have thrown out any character development that could have grown out of Matt's identity being public with some vague "deal with the devil" kind of event.
I do like Garney and Milla's art on the book though.
His identitt being public knowledge came back to bite him and everyone he cared about inbthe ass at the end of Waid's run, his identity being known has been a thing for over ten years now
Matt working for the DA is a great idea. The costume is okay, but not great, the red suit needs to return. The villain is generic as fuck. Sidekick guy is bit of an entitled asshole, but that's how every sidekick is nowadays.
Yeah, i'm glad Soule's on it. His She-Hulk run used his attorney know-how to great effect and i hoped for this. The spooky asian gang thing is a little... played out, but I trust him to do better.
I don't mind resetting status quo from Waid. Maid's run was good, sometimes great, but he did take it to a specific corner he wanted, in San Fran, identity known, in a 3 piece suit. I don't expect other writers to follow...suit. At least it had a conclusion or epilogue in the future issue/annual.
I don't know but it's really upsetting me. I come to /co/ to escape from Marvel shills since this is the only place on the internet where you're allowed to like DC without the SJWs ramming how un-PC you are for it down your throats and now they're all over the place and I hate it. I just want to talk about DC but I can't because of all these Marvel shills spamming the board with their shit that nobody cares about. Why is this allowed? This is why wwe need a sticky to tell them that marvel shills aren't welcome on this board.
Some people read and enjoy comics and come to a comic board to talk about them.
>muh viral marketing
calm down, no one's trying to get one over on you, you shrewd autist
don't give into that bullshit man
not the anon you're responding to but besides downloading many big two comics i vote with my dollars on a number of books every month, as well as the occasional prestige purchases
be you anon, be a fan
I understand the desire to dump Waid's development for a more traditional DD status quo (I don't give a shit that he's a prosecutor now; I liked him as a defense attorney and the lawyering stuff will have an only slightly different flavor) but most of the really good runs have found ways to maneuver around and through the tumbleweeds of continuity that previous writers have left laying around. Brubaker managed to more or less reset from Bendis, but people still heavily suspected the dude was DD, they just couldn't prove it. I'm glad they've gone back to NY and a darker vibe for the book but I doubt there's going to be a satisfactory answer to the secret identity question.
Art's pretty good what with the heavy dark/red contrasts. Writing could use some work. The worst part though is the OMD-style reset that sticks Matt back in the Kitchen with a restored secret identity, and a very upset Foggy.
Maybe it's me, but I really don't think his runs on Inhumans and Wolverine were any good. Swamp Thing is probably the best thing he has written for the Big 2 and nothing has come close.
It's not all black, though. It's red on black instead of red on black with red highlights.
