Review: Daredevil #612

The whirlwind adventure of the fall ends here, in an oversized and overwhelming Daredevil epic as only Charles Soule and Phil Noto could deliver it.

Five years and forty issues, Charles Soule’s run on Daredevil ends with the death of Daredevil. Injured, dealing with his fake brother come to life, and the mysterious Vigil, Matt/Daredevil is still on a mission to take down Wilson Fisk. Soule delivers a story that’s a rollercoaster of a ride that has you feeling victorious… until you don’t.

It’s difficult to fully review the issue without spoiling it but Soule presents a comic that’s interesting in that it feels quick and in a way choppy to start. It’s dreamlike floating along taking you through the attempt to take down the Kingpin in a Sorkian sort of way, in the court of law. It’s a moment made for tv and then you find out what’s really happening. And it all makes sense. And then reality hits. It all becomes clear as to why Soule has written a comic the way he has and presented moments the way he has. And there’s clearly a brilliance to it all.

It’s all helped by Phil Noto on art and Clayton Cowles on lettering. The art is beautiful and it just adds to what Soule has put together, a perfect combination of story and art. Again, it’s difficult to say why without spoiling things but, it just works perfectly.

Soule closes a chapter in the life of Matt Murdock and we’ll have to wait a few months to see what’s next but this is a beautiful comic that feels like a fitting tribute to Daredevil and personal in a way too. The team is given us a hell of a chapter that’s hard to not choke up a little as the final pages are read. “Death” of heroes seems to happen every week in comics, and never permanent, but when the story is this good, who really cares.

Enter the Age of X-Man. An New Take on Age of Apocalypse?

The Age of X-Man dawns…and the X-Men cannot stop it. After the apocalyptic dissolution of the X-Men comes…AGE OF X-MAN! At first glance, this looks like a flip of Age of Apocalypse which saw a future where Apocalypse had won and out of it came the character Nate Grey, X-Man. Is this the flip where Nate Grey rules?

Starting this February, something big for the X-Men!
