Review: Man Without Fear #1

Man Without Fear #1

Daredevil is gone, but Hell’s Kitchen is still a place of heroes and villains. Foggy Nelson (issue #1), the Defenders (issue #2), the many loves of Matt Murdock (issue #3), the Kingpin (issue #4) and a mysterious Guardian Devil (issue #5) will all learn what it means to live in a world without a Daredevil. And without a Daredevil to protect it, has hell come for his city? Who is The Man Without Fear?!

Daredevil is beaten and broken, laying in a coma. The abuse from over the years and his latest battle have taken its toll leaving his future in doubt. What impact does that have on the area he protected? What does it mean to his friends? Man Without Fear #1 begins to explore this with a focus on Matt Murdock’s best friend, Foggy Nelson.

Writer Jed MacKay delivers a solid first issue that has Foggy reflecting on his friendship and history with Matt and Daredevil while at the same time having Matt explore his life. Within his coma he’s battling his demons, literally and figuratively.

It’s nothing new and groundbreaking in framing or storytelling but it’s a touching issue. Its focus and emphasis on the friendship, and heartache that has come with it, is a solid beginning to the series. It also leaves open some questions as to whether it really will be Matt returning to his previous role as Daredevil.

The art by Danilo S. Beyruth with color by Andres Mossa and lettering by Clayton Cowles is interesting. Beyruth’s art style doesn’t stand out as something I remember from elsewhere but here its haunting touches make the story stand out. It’s a good mix of art to the tone of the story. There’s some nice touches here and there emphasizing the nightmarish experience Matt is having while in a coma and there’s a good focus on Daredevil’s history even if it’s just in the background.

While there’s nothing particularly wrong with Man Without Fear #1, the first issue feels like it might benefit from reading the entire series in trade form at once. This is one for the hardcore Daredevil fans right now but might be a solid read once it’s all wrapped up.
