This book is always good, the art’s awesome, the writing is superb, and everything else you could nitpick is neat always and, hopefully, forever. Daredevil The Man Without Fear #31 just…ASKLHFI*EUBF!!!
Now Jester is on the cover but not really in the book we’re simply lead to believe it’s him who is orchestrating all of the events in the book. Well I take that back we see a photo of him as John Powers, but I don’t really count that.
I know nothing about Matt’s previous relationships, I could name a few exes I mean he has no trouble getting around with the women but he’s had enough over the years that I know nothing about this Kristen chick who is working at the office. It’s for sure I can tell he’d be happier maybe not ever seeing her again but it seems like work is getting done around there so from a business standpoint it’s good she’s there.
The way things connect, eh I mean things don’t come off as “it’s convenient to have so-so here and then DD can go do this because of that” Things happen organically in the book and that is so refreshing the Hank Pym part was a smidge the opposite of what I just said but even that plays out pretty well and I found that to be a huge highlight of the issue. I mean ant;s released into the sky to compound the rain clouds cause a torrential downpour is a pretty good way to stop a riot for a guy whose limited in his power set. This is where it pays to have a robust circle of friends.
The art is just always good, Samnee is a wonderful artist and I really don’t want him to ever leave the book. I know that’s been said before by so many people but it gives the book a uniqueness that you want it to keep. Waid keeps up the good work in the area of story and Samnee is in on that too. They make a great team.
The one set of panels where DD takes out that police man was spectacular!
If you’re a new reader this wouldn’t be the best jump in place, but you don’t always need one for a book like this. It really makes you want to pick up the last few issues and continue from there. So I suggest checking it out if you want something new on your subscription list.
