With all the noise about re-numberings and relaunches and reboots, this first issue of Daredevil is both extremely welcome to new readers and strong enough for a regular reader to keep picking up. In 1979 Frank Miller took hold of Daredevil with a darker more serious interpretation of the character and in many ways his influence on title never left. Leaving readers to follow Matt Murdock through a long depressing journey all the way into Shadowland. Mark Waid’s Daredevil is not the same as Frank Miller’s. Instead Mark Waid’s Daredevil is more like the eqarly years of of the character when he was dashing, charming, always hungry for adventure and grinning ear-to-ear and long-time Daredevil fans will admit that it is a long overdue change in the character. The art in the book is also reflective of the change going on in Matt Murdock’s life with its bright bursting colors and it doesn’t hurt that both artists have a great talent for nice fluid story-telling and great ideas to illustrate Daredevil’s unique set of powers. There is something truly great at work on this book and should be a priority on anyone’s pull list. I can’t wait til’ the wheels really start turning on this book.

Story: 4 - Very Good
Art: 5 - Excellent
