I'm a huge fan of Kevin Smith movies so reading his DD story was a real treat. This hardcover collected his story "Guardian Devil." It's outstanding writing from Kevin, some parts actually really touched my heart. I liked his reveal of (view spoiler)

The second story was just as good, David Mack's "Parts of a Hole," which also had some emotionally resonating moments. Also a hilarious scene where (vie

este volumen compila dos historias: diablo guardián, de kevin smith y joe quesada, y parts of a hole, de david mack y, otra vez, joe quesada. el dibujo de quesada está en mejor forma, ni duda cabe, en diablo guardián, pero su capacidad de innovar en la página y los paneles y de hacer juegos y montajes está más desarrollada en parts of a hole. diablo guardián es, al menos durante sus primeros números, una muy efectiva historia de horror/suspenso, un cuento de muerte y redención que solo sabe mejo ...more

I wish I could rate the two story arcs in this volume seperately. I would give the Kevin Smith story three stars and the David Mack story five. I split the difference and gave the volume 4 stars.

Kevin Smith's story was ok, but very wordy, and not that polished. Some of the characterizations were a little off, and certain parts had plot holes or things that just didn't make much sense.

David Mack's story was excellent. He got the characters spot on. Echo is a great new character and this was the

This oversized volume contains the Kevin Smith arc that revamped Daredevil along with a follow up story introducing Echo, who now hands out with the New Avengers. Kevin Smith is very underrated as a comics writer. In this volume, he takes the rather stodgy world that is Matt Murdock's mopefest and livens it up by giving Matt a reason to think he's important again. With all of DD's supporting cast showing up, including Peter and Dr. Strange, and with references to quite a few spots in DD's histor ...more

It’s been a long time since I’ve read these, but I remember how excited I was when they came out. Marvel was in a bit of a rut and Quesada and Palmiotti really reinvigorated things starting with this title. Kevin Smith does a good job on a more serious story, not really what we had come to expect from him at the time. In retrospect, the best part about this run is that it sets up the exceptional Bendis/Maleev but it’s still a good read on its own.

Shelves: super-hero
It was ok. The story telling had a decent flow. The layouts in the art were imaginative. But there was frequently a touch of the grotesque in the bodies of the characters. Fingers looked broken when clearly they were not meant to be. The coloring was not always clean cut and sensible either. It was a discordant note that threw the story off kilter just enough to keep it from any sort of greatness.

DNF review on my blog The Fictional Reader

Obviously, I didn’t enjoy this -obvious because I DNF’ed it… The art-work was good but not my favorite but it really was the story I couldn’t get along with. It was just so… WEIRD. Everyone was crazy! They were trying to convince Matt Murdock that this baby would grow up to be like the devil. And trying to convince him to kill the baby. And then they blackmailed others to kill the baby? WHAT? IT’S A BABY? And then a nun died and I was just frea
