Matt Murdock is called out to a podunk town named Redemption in order to see whether a teenager accused of murder really did it and like a lot of these small towns they hide secrets of their own. Unlike most Daredevil pieces this focuses more on the case and very little on Daredevil in action. Some have expressed their wish that this be a 100% Murdock the lawyer story but that didn't happen.

Artwork is somewhat good to good with a lot of shadow play. Lots of focuses on the character heads as they

Wow. I am very surprised by how much I enjoyed this. David Hine has written some Grade A Stinkers in the past, so I was kind of dreading how he would approach my favorite character in all of comic books. Turns out, he did an almost-perfect job!

While this isn't strictly a "Daredevil" story as much as it is a "Matt Murdock" story, Daredevil's direct influence is felt throughout. Hine does terrific work here with Murdock's character, showing him to be the troubled, almost bipolar hero he is both in

Loosely on the case of the West Memphis Three, Daredevil: Redemption is a perfect example of what make Daredevil one of the most interesting superhero/vigilantes around.

This story arc focuses more on Matt Murdock's career as a lawyer and his trouble navigating the justice system as a licensed lawyer as well as the masked vigilante, Daredevil. Murdock experienced the conflict of knowing that his client was innocent, yet having to perform within the law in order to prove it. It is one of the seem

Basado en un hecho real (el caso de los West Memphis Three), David Hine nos sumerge en una cruda historia evidentemente apuntada al público adulto sobre el asesinato de un pequeño niño y el juicio de los tres adolescentes que aparecen como culpables del hecho.
Ambientada en el sur profundo de los Estados Unidos zona marcada constantemente por el fanatismo religioso, la ignorancia y todo tipo de abusos, es protagonizada por el abogado por sobre el héroe, cuyas apariciones no hacen mas que complica

Superheroics take a back seat to courtroom drama in this Marvel Knights look at Daredevil. The southern town of Redemption Valley has been hit with a tragedy; the murder of a young boy has rocked the community to its core. Blame is placed on local outcast Joel Flood, and railroad tactics place the young man behind bars. After seven years of appeals, Flood's mother enlists the help of Matt Murdock in proving her child's innocence, drawing the blind vigilante Daredevil into the search for justice. ...more

Possibly should be billed as Matt Murdock: Redemption as Daredevil is hardly present in it. A pretty good book however some parts elements are slightly lost to the main story. Possibly could have used one more issue to tighten up the little side storys. Did'nt really feel like a Daredevil story felt a little bit more like a Batman story.

Some of the characters are fairly ethicly ambigous which isn't always a bad thing.

When I review a book or graphic novel, I try to pick something that is underrepresented or is deserving of attention. When I saw the rating and complete lack of reviews, I knew duty called.

Inspired by a true true story, this book is absolutely incredible and is my favorite Daredevil story. While Matt dons the suit a few times, this story is as much a legal procedural as anything else. In Daredevil: Redemption he travels to the deep south to represent three kids accused of a gruesome murder of a

The costumed superhero side of Daredevil is definitely out of place in the Southern Gothic setting of this story, but that's why the story wisely focuses on Matt Murdock's courtroom scenes. The art is muddy but beautiful, and the pacing works well. Although the book seems to be billed as a murder mystery, the identity of the real killer is never in doubt, and the story is more of an indictment of witch-hunt mentalities. Not a classic Daredevil story by any means, this is still a fine addition to ...more

Velice volně na základě skutečných událostí založený příběh o obhajobě (ne)vinného tria teenegerů z amerického zapadákova, kde je křesťanský zaslepený fanatismus stále aktuální. V celé knize není žádná akční scéna a Daredevil se objeví na několika málo stránkách a spíše z povinnosti než-li z dějové opodstatněnosti. Jde o klasické právní drama se vším všudy. Co ho ve výsledku (a to i navzdory nezajímavé až tuctové kresbě) odlišuje a dojmy výrazně umocňuje je finální pasáž ze současnosti.

One of my all-time favorite Daredevil stories. Inspired by the West Memphis 3 case that happened in Arkansas, this is definitely a Matt Murdock story, more than a Daredevil story. If you followed the West Memphis 3, or want to read a Matt Murdock story, check this out.

Based loosely on the case of the West Memphis Three (www.wm3.org), Hine brings a twisted story of injustice that is unbelievable (truth is stranger than fiction!) and engaging -- and Daredevil is there to help!

Storia un po' sottotono, esterna al filone principale "Devilistico" e disegni in uno stile che non riesce a piacermi.

What a great story. Wouldn't even have to be Daredevil, this was outstanding. Maybe one of my favorite comics now... Will be reading more Daredevil.

Second time reading this story. And wow, that was a downer. I guess you can't win them all.
