You Know What Comic Rules? Ed Brubaker's Daredevil

Just saying.

Heck, the ending scenario has been done, like, literally 587 times since Amazing Spider-Man #129, and yet it was still really cool.

Three cheers for Ed Brubaker's Daredevil!!!

Okay, I've despised most of Brubaker's superhero work- even Sleeper Season Two (S1 was just fine, though), but DD #84 was pretty damn great.

Well, it started with Captain America for me. The first arc of that felt like a 1960's spy action adventure.

Bendis' run felt like '24'. You miss an episode, you miss out and I felt like a bum trying to jump a train but missing an opening the whole way through his run. Maybe that's just the completist in me but I just gotta catch em all, if you know what I'm saying.

So a change of writer meant a great jumping on point and with me enjoying his Captain America already, no way in hell was I going to miss this one.

This is a great story, expertly told by both the brush and the pen. The rain hits the tarred rooftops with a hiss in hells kitchen like it hasn't before and the story rolls like an ominous thunder in the distance. I just get the feeling we ain't seen nothing yet.

I didn't think it got much better than Brubaker's run on Captain America.

I was wrong.

I'll chip a "F--- Yeah!" in here, too. I've enjoyed most everything I've read by Brubaker, but this is the first ongoing by him that I've bought.

I was nuts about Bendis's run, and I still am, so I was leery about ANYone taking over after his departure, but damn if Brubaker isn't ruling.

The art is also terrific!

You can tell that Frank is quite aware he's done this before - just never for this exact reason. So, is his thinking more, "Oops, time to shoot fish in a barrel again" or "Man, can't let Murdock have *all* the fun"?
