Expectations.

Sometimes, it's all about expectations. A mediocre book by one of my favorite authors is a greater disappointment than a poor book from a writer who's new to me. And a great book by a new author can be a greater thrill than an equally great book from an author that I know.

Which isn't to say that Daredevil: Golden Age is great, mind you. It's just that Marvel and DC have churned out so many steaming piles of dung in the form of graphic novels, that a relatively good one comes as a po

I thought that on its own it was a strong story, and i liked the time shifts and mythos building with bont and the kingpin. A bit like the last arc, it had me questioning some things about continuity- the art styles were decades apart but the characters didn't age right. It doesn't have to be exact but it did jar me out of the story a bit as much as it allowed a cool story to be told. Oh and the progression of the fbi agent's character was cool too! I hope to see more of her.

Oop dee doo! This is good comics right here. Amzing story structure jumping from the 40's, 60's and a period over the course of the past two days, and the past year in the present. Maleev shows he's no one trick pony switching between three distinct visual styles to reflect noir-pulp imagery from the time period portrayed. The jigsaw puzzle story is of the rise, fall, revenge and ultimate death of a man who ran organized crime in New York City for two decades before being taken down by the rooki ...more

This isn't quite a misstep in the Daredevil saga, but it's not as good as the previous few story arcs, either. Nevertheless, the story is still great. We get to find out a little bit of the Kingpin before Kingpin Wilson Fisk came along, and how this guy affected the Kitchen and its citizens.

The art was fun, with Maleev switching styles up to reflect which era he was dealing with. I also enjoyed getting to see the FBI agent come to grips with the hand she'd been dealt.

All in all, a good arc, jus

Throughout his run on Daredevil, Bendis makes copious usage of flashbacks to tell the story-of-what-happened and the story-of-what's-happening-now simultaneously. But he's even more ambitious in this volume, telling three stories simultaneously, and Maleev and Stewart use three distinct art styles to illustrate them.

Even though the actual plot is rather run-of-the-mill, the pacing and flashing back and forth is done extremely well, so it actually ends up being an incredibly engrossing read. A st

This story is surprisingly violent and emotionally disturbing, and it's a great showcase for Bendis/Maleev, especially with the changing art styles to reflect flashbacks.
Eric
Kind of an odd book. Good story and cool connection to older stories (including Melvin "The Gladiator" Potter AND one of my favorites, White Tiger!)
Rolls
Fun stuff. Bendis crafts a damn entertaining story arc here. And Maleev gets to stretch out a bit and hits pay dirt. Very, very fun.
Christopher
Really cool story with great art, layout and characters that spanned decades. Enjoyed this one a lot.
