Art makes a huge difference in a visual medium like comics. The Story can be good but if the art is lousy it will impair the ability of the writer to fully communicate their message.

That said the art was well done here. And the story was engaging. I don;t consider myself a big daredevil fan. But, this starts out with him in Jail. Suspected and accused of being Daredevil. And then he gets thrown in to the general populace in an effort to either get him to defend himself and prove to everyone he

Ed Brubaker's first two years with Daredevil and all I can say is "Wow." While I can imagine a writer's delight at being asked to pen Daredevil, I can't imagine anyone wanting to follow the legendary run of Bendis. However, Brubaker doesn't miss a beat and finishes up the Bendis story but throws a demented twist and gives us an unbelievable Daredevil adventure. I can't wait for what Brubaker has in store for us next.

These 5 stars are a very different 5 stars than the ones I gave to Bendis's incredible Daredevil run. While Bendis shook up Daredevil's world and took it to places it had never been before, Brubaker trods more familiar territory, but does so with more heart and intensity than almost any other comics writer could muster.

Awesome. Brubaker breathed new life into the Daredevil mythos. Bendis is the premier Daredevil writer of our time, but Brubaker's arc is also epic and breathtaking.

Ed Brubaker's Daredevil run conjures up the best feelings of film noir, gritty police dramas and the realistic weight of what it would take one to be the protector of so many. The first omnibus of his 4+ year run on the title contains arguably one of the greatest Daredevil stories of all time: The Devil in Cell Block D, which sees Matt Murdock holed up in Ryker's Island among the general population with the likes of Kingpin, Bullseye and the Punisher. From there, the Man Without Fear travels the ...more

This was a really good read. Great art, interesting story and some nice twists here and there. I did feel things got a bit more cliche and silly towards the end which sort of drew me out of the tale. Also, and I know this isn't really fair, but this is a noticable step down from the amazing Bendis/Maleev run.

Definitely the stronger side of Brubaker's run on ole' hornhead. It starts with "The Devil Inside & Out," which features Matt Murdock in prison. "Inside & Out" is my favorite story Brubaker wrote for Marvel, and the high point of his run on Daredevil. It was originally where I stopped reading the monthlies (before Waid's current run), and I decided I might as well see what followed.

The ensuing story arcs are okay, but nothing super special. "The Devil Takes a Ride" has some good moments

The first story arc, “The Devil in Cell Block D,” is one of the best Daredevil stories of all time. For that story alone I’d recommend this volume. The rest of Brubaker’s tenure on the Man Without Fear is a little hit or miss but overall I enjoyed it.

It is hard to find the exact listing of this book on Goodreads. It should be Daredevil by Ed Brubaker Ultimate Vol 2, but this is the closest thing I could find in terms of what is included in the trade.

If I am reviewing the wrong trade, and you know the correct listing for it, please send me the info.

In the trade I read, it focused on Mister Fear attempting to destroy Matt Murdock's life.

At first, I rolled my eyes. Here is yet another villain trying to turn Daredevil's life into a living hell.

Whoa!!! A lot to process.
At the start of this book Matt Murdock is in jail after being outed as Daredevil and the FBI is hell bent on making him pay. So, this should be the bottom of the barrel right? There is nowhere to go from here but up, right? Wrong, so so wrong! You do not rope in Ed Brubaker, to write a happy story. By the time this volume ends that would feel like a vacation in France. This is why I love him so much, he made Daredevil his own. He picked up where Brian Michael Bendis left

Wow, this was intense and gripping.
I never thought that anything could top Bendis' Daredevil Vol. 2, but Brubaker suprised me. It has everything you are looking for in a Daredevil comic: darkness, friendship, the kingpin, a conflicted Matt Murdock, heart and emotions, and a really good plot. In addition, the art is amazing.
