I’m not sure who to thank for getting this book back on track, but if it’s Greg Rucka, then his presence is most welcome. I gotta admit, after seeing Matt Murdock in the dumps for so long, I began to get just as depressed (about this book) as he. Luckily, it seems like things are moving on.
Daredevil #108 continues the engaging detective story ushered in last issue and literally forces Murdock to get back on his feet and take a case he most likely cannot win. Because of the odds against him, he takes it as a challenge upon his legal prowess and so begins an intriguing story of “who did it?”. Dakota North is a fantastic supporting character and I hope she continues to stick around. It’s been a long time since this book had a strong supporting female and the chemistry she brings to this book reinforces its new direction. Couple this with a well-paced story and some strong art by Michael Lark and you have the makings of a winner. (Grade: B+)
