Marvel and DC have both gotten on my nerves over the past 7-10 years with the way that they will end a current comic series and restart it with a new #1 just a few months later. I have plenty of ideas on how it should be done, but in the words of Peter David, "But I Digress..".
Marvel relaunched Daredevil a week ago and I had mixed feelings about it. First it was a Marvel book and I don't normally go for those. I also have never been a huge fan of the character, except for the Miller and Kevin Smith runs. I then noticed that a man named Mark Waid was going to be doing the writing chores. That got me intrigued enough to give it a read.
Mark Waid has done an amazing job of making a character that has been put through the ringer over the past 10 years as accessible as if he was brand new. This issue has him stop a kidnapping from being committed by The Spot, try to go back to being a lawyer, and start researching a mystery that is pretty interesting. This is a back to basics approach to the character that I hope DC takes with their re-launch.
I give this 5 out of 5 batarangs. I called my local comic shop, www.poepoz.net, and had the owner put this book on my pull list. Make mine DC, with a Marvel title or two. If there is a better book being published by Marvel at this time I do not know about it.
