really liked it

I love Milla Donovan, Daredevil's ex-wife/girlfriend, being so central to this book. She may be the best thing Brian Michael Bendis added to Daredevil's canon. Brubaker does a great job devoting a single issue to her. The problem is that he seems to completely ignore her job with the Housing Commission, and makes her life wholly wrapped up in Daredevil's crime fighting. I thought it was great that she was fighting for Hell's Kitchen, just without the superpowers.
Aside from that, this book feels like it finally is starting to separate Brubaker's run from Bendis, bringing in a weird new mystery surrounding Gladiator and drug-running that feels far more "superhero" than most of what Bendis did, but still very, very crime-focused. It ends with a cliffhanger that's nice and agonizing.
