DAREDEVIL #5 REVIEW
Writer: Mark Waid
Artist: Marcos Martin
Color: Javier Rodriguez
It has been years since I've read an issue of Daredevil. The reason had to do with life going by quickly rather than the comic book. Now I have returned and am glad because Mark Waid's run with Daredevil has been excellent.
When I was reading this title, it was the era of Bendis and Brubaker. Those comics were awesome and I'm pleased to see Waid continuing the excellence with his storytelling. I am not going to give away too much with this review, but Matt Murdoch is defending Austin Cao, a blind man who overheard something juicy regrading Latveria and that is all I will write at this time. There is plenty of action and of course, Foggy Nelson provides plenty of comedy for diehard fans.
If you missed issues one to five then you will not necessarily be lost with this issue. One can jump in and enjoy the adventures of Daredevil.
Waid's script is great and there is plenty of action and intrigue. Not only do we have a strong story but the artwork by Marcos Martin is phenomenal, plus the colors by Javier Rodriguez is the icing on the cake. This Daredevil run has an old-school artwork/style to it that is perfect for the story.
I've been reading plenty of DC and Marvel titles lately and I must admit that Waid's Daredevil is one of the best I've read this year.
