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.

Graphic Policy’s Top Comic Picks this Week!

Conan the Barbarian #1

Wednesdays are new comic book day! Each week hundreds of comics are released, and that can be pretty daunting to go over and choose what to buy. That’s where we come in!

Each week our contributors choose what they can’t wait to read this week or just sounds interesting. In other words, this is what we’re looking forward to and think you should be taking a look at!

Find out what folks think below, and what comics you should be looking out for this Wednesday.

It’s a short week of releases with the holiday and you can get every single issue for under $50! So, instead of picking which you should get, we’re doing something a little bit different with going over what they are and why you should check out each release!

20th Century Boys: Perfect Edition Vol. 2 (VIZ Media) – These perfect editions collect two volumes of the award winning series and a perfect chance to get what you’ve been missing!

Champions #1 (Marvel) – The superhero team is expanding in members and their scope making sure to have a global focus! A perfect chance to jump on the series.

Conan the Barbarian #1 (Marvel) – The classic character returns to Marvel for all new adventures and it’s a must for fans of sword and sorcery.

Detective Comics #995 (DC Comics) – We’re here for the run up to issue #1000. It doesn’t happen too often and makes the lead up pretty exciting!

Heroes in Crisis #4 (DC Comics) – This series definitely has a love it or hate it thing going on but we want to see what happens next and if it goes where we think it’s going.

Man Without Fear #1 (Marvel) – Daredevil is “gone” but Hells Kitchen needs protectors. This mini-series focuses on those around Daredevil’s life in his absence.

One Dirty Tree (Uncivilized Books) – Noah Van Sciver’s new graphic memoir exploring his childhood growing up with eight siblings in a Morman family.

Scarlet #5 (Jinxworld/DC Comics) – The new volume wraps up and we want to see where the series goes.

The Walking Dead #187 (Skybound Entertainment/Image Comics) – The series has revived itself with the introduction of the Commonwealth and we love to see what’s next with each issue.

Winter Soldier #2 (Marvel) – The first issue ended with a solid new villain (we think) and the overall direction for the series and character is cool. It’s all about finding redemption for others and taking on Hydra.
