Users who pulled this comic:


  1. so this is finally happening. Bendis’ Dark Knight Returns. i only wish Maleev was doing all the interiors.

  2. Weird, I thought I already commented on here. I must have been really tired, oh well. I’m intrigued and excited to check this out.

  3. Woot.

  4. This should be great.

  5. I can’t remember the last time I was really excited about a Bendis book but his Daredevil run was really got me into comics. I can’t wait.

  6. I’m not really into Marvel too much but I do read the ongoing Waid series. Does this take place outside of that continuity?

  7. This was a really damned good comic. This has been an awesome year to be a Daredevil fan.

    If a comic isn’t going to be funny, then it has to be as badass as this,

    Ready for 7 more

  8. This was brilliant. The double page splash… whoa…

  9. I read this last night and I’m still tryin to figure out whether the art was brilliant or just sloppy

    when did Klaus Janson start sucking so hard? the art was 2 stars at best and that’s giving a it credit because of who it is. i really expected more from him.
    and Bendis, this is the most unalluring opening book of a series that i have ever read from him and i love me some Brian Michael Bendis, but this was just repugnant. boring. 1 star at best. very disappointed in my boy.
    this book crashed and burned from the get-go. an absolute fail for me. i’ll give it 1, maybe 2 more issues to get on the track before dropping it, but the ice is very thin.

  11. I don’t even think the term gritty does this book justice. When I was done reading it, I felt like I needed to do laundry, some of the grime had to of rubbed off on me. While I won’t argue with those who don’t like the art, I thought it was visceral and affecting in all the right ways. Not what I’d call pretty, but very fitting for this–literally–gut-busting, head-smashing issue. I’m actually surprised they didn’t have this under the MAX label.
    I really enjoyed the story, particularly the way we are privy to Urich’s thoughts and musings regarding the writing of his piece on DD. I still don’t know exactly where Bendis and Mack plan to take this story, but I sure want to be along for the ride. On a side note, I had no idea this was 30+ pgs., does anyone know if all the issues will be this long?

  12. This was very very good and i really enjoyed it being my first Bendis Daredevil experiance. At this point im just very conflicted if i should just wait for the trade or read this monthly

  13. Mediocre first chapter and the art was really ugly.

  14. it really boggles my mind how well received this opening chapter has been. c’mon ifanbase, WTF? usually when i don’t like something and everyone else does, i still “get it”, ya know? i can see why people like it.
    i understand we all have different tastes, but Jesus Christ. i mean, i want to relive the Bendis DD era as much as anyone, but i can’t help but think the popularity of the character might be affecting people’s judgement.
    i don’t know, am i the only one?

  15. Was “End of Days” supposed to be released a year ago? How does this fit with the current Daredevil?

  16. A real turn-off.

  17. Ok, so I’m half way through the book and it’s well written and the art wanes in and out for me, but the part that is sticking with me and the reason I stopped reading was because of the description of another Daredevil Story sounds like a damn fine read. So began my search for the story within the story…

    Just Read my question…

    Does anybody know what book contains the story where Daredevil becomes Kingpin of Hells Kitchen? or was that just a made up story?

    BigDrtyMan wanting to get lost in the meta

    • i don’t remember the exact issue #. i know it was DareDevil vol 2 somewhere between issues 45-60 i believe. it’s by Bendis and Maleev. if you go to your LCS you should be able to back issue bin-diving and flip through some books to find out the exact issue. personally, i would recommend the entire Bendis/Maleev DD run. it is amazing. best thing Bendis ever did. Ultimate Spider-Man is a close second.

  18. I don’t read Daredevil and I seriously haven’t read Daredevil Since Miller in the 80’s. However the premise of this book attracted me to it………..
    Seriously …seriously…..this was one of the best comics I have read in a long while……just wow…….hope the rest of the limited series maintains this level…….awesome

  19. I’ve been waiting for this for 5 years, and this was as good (if not better) than I thought it would be. The script is tight (Image-Bendis gritty) and the art is jaw-dropping. This is by far the best work Klaus Janson has produced.

    Daredevil is my favorite superhero hands down. It looks like he’s getting a DKR-worthy ending.

  20. I’ve only read Frank Millers Daredevil which is awesome, this is my first Bendis issue. All I can say is, there will be more!
