    Now that Matt Murdock is in a place where everybody knows his name (that would be San Francisco), he doesn’t have to worry about pulling off this stuff……but he can’t get away with this anymore. (heh)…yet that doesn’t excuse his new choice of duds.This is the penultimate volume of Mark Waid and Chris Samnee’s award winning run on Daredevil and the cat that was once Matt Murdock’s secret identity is now out of the bag for reals and by choice.So what’s the first thing Matt does? He starts writing a tell-all autobiography ghosted by his pretend dead pal, Foggy Nelson. And things are slightly altered…to punch up the book a little.Things start to unravel, because Daredevil fails to take his own cocksure advice.Next: The enemy (and possible future frenemy) of my former ally turned enemy is my friend. (Huh?)Bottom line: Waid’s run on his title is one of his all-time best and stacks up well overall with the amazing writers who’ve penned “The Man Without Fear”. The tone is a little more buoyant than Bendis, Brubaker or Miller and if you start here: Daredevil, Volume 1 - it’s a nice gateway for readers interested in the character. Waid and Samnee do a terrific job of explaining Murdock’s abilities to the barely initiated.

    Since Matt Murdock is blind it doesn’t seem fair to criticize his fashion sense, but he has made some stunningly bad choices with his superhero costumes in the past. Sure his red tights are now an all-time classic, but his original yellow and black outfit? Ugh. That all black ensemble with a sock pulled over his head left him looking like a low rent ninja? Boring. And we’re all pretending that faux armor abomination back in the ‘90s never happened, right?So it seems a little risky for Daredevil to change up his look again, but now that everyone knows his secret identity Matt doesn’t feel the need to hide behind a mask anymore. It takes a bold guy to pull off a red business suit with a DD belt buckle, but they don’t call him The Man Without Fear for nothing, folks.Matt has other things going on besides his makeover. He’s still adapting to his new role as celebrity superhero in his new home of San Francisco, and he’s balancing that with his law practice as well as his writing his autobiography for an $8 million dollar payday. Hey, those red business suits ain't cheap, people!More great stuff from writer Mark Waid who manages to deliver satisfying close-ended superhero stories while also always having something cooking as on-going tales in Matt’s life. It’s immensely satisfying stuff that really breathed new life into an old character. Too bad it’s all gonna end soon in the interest of rebooting the entire Marvel universe.

    11 - There's a new Stunt Master and the old one wants to sue him for using his name. Meanwhile, Matt and Foggy are working on Matt's autobiography.The new Stunt Master is a douche nozzle and I can't wait for Daredevil to settle his hash. I'm really enjoying how Waid and Samnee are dusting off and using villains that aren't The Kingpin.12 - Daredevil finally gets his hands on the Stunt Master.Now that was some crazy shit. There were twists and some awesome action, such as Daredevil driving a car using his billy club and cane while chasing the Stunt Master. Turns out both of them are douche nozzles.13 - Kirsten's dad has bodyguards secretly following her. Good thing, since she's in danger...Is one of Daredevil's foes striking at him through Kirsten? Also, the Shroud shows up and things look to be heating up between San Francisco's top two blind crime fighters.14 - Matt ditches his Daredevil outfit in favor of a red and black suit. Meanwhile, the Owl's daughter is looking for her old man.You have to admit, Mark Waid has balls, having Matt ditch the mask and tights for a red and black suit but it works. I also liked where things are going with The Shroud, the Owl, Owlette, or whatever her name is, and Daredevil in the next issue.15 - The Shroud is using The Owl to look for his missing girlfriend and launches a campaign to ruin Daredevil in San Francisco.Yeah, Daredevil's up to his neck in sewage in this one. Every cell phone conversation and meeting he's ever had is broadcast and Foggy's been outed. And Matt has to make a deal with his worst enemy to settle things.Closing Thoughts:Mark Waid's had one hell of a run on Daredevil, making him one of my top Marvel characters of all time. It's a shame someone will probably hit the status quo button as soon as he leaves. Four out of five stars.

    I have loved every page of Mark Waid's run on Daredevil.There seems to be two schools of thought when it comes to DD fans (just talking about genuine fans here, not the haters). One school, which seems to be in the minority these days, thinks DD should always be the wisecracking swashbuckler he was in the early days and that Frank Miller ruined the character forever. The other, more prominent, school is the folks who think DD should always be the grim, gritty, tortured soul introduced by Miller and expanded upon by Brian Michael Bendis.Not to be THAT guy... but I'm not in either of these camps. I actually think both these aspects of Daredevil are necessary to make the character come to life while being true to its history... and Mark Waid's run has been SO good for me because he manages to balance both sides of the character PERFECTLY. Not only that but he's also managed to take Matt to places he's never been before.DAMN, but I'm going to miss Waid when he goes...

    So it's official, Waid's second half of his run is great stuff (unlike that first half, so jumbled of good, meh, and shit) In this volume we get plenty of Daredevil in shitty positions. The first arc was okay. Stunt master is back and it's a kind of screwed up ending, but it's a fun little story none the less. The next arcs are better. I freaking love Kristien. I hope she never leaves. Which this is Matt's life, so it could only mean terrible things. I hope I'm wrong. She's badass, funny, and looks cool. It would be a shame but this is Matt's tragic life. Matt ditching his suit for just a regular black and red suit is he don't give a shit no more. I thought it was clever (though obviously I'm partial to his real suit) but it's none the less a cool change. And ending on a nice big cliffhanger with you know who returning brings a lot of excitement for the final volume. I'm ready, bring it on!

    I really liked Mark Waid's work on the "re-do" of Daredevil. That being said this Volume was awful. WTF happened?Matt Murdock has been outted as Daredevil. He has moved to San Francisco to save his friends. Which is really stupid since if the enemies KNOW who DD is..then they know who he used to work/be friends with. So even if he moves to San Francisco or Zurich, Switzerland I can find no reason why the incredibly ruthless array of people who hate DD wouldn't find Foggy and anyone else they damn well pleased and turn them into dog food. Just for shits and giggles. Because they are evil. But ok..anyways he's in San Fran and has become a d-bag. where we going with DDD (Douchebag DareDevil)?Well Waid has him fight an ex stunt man who wants to do stunts and be top dog. Yep. You read that right. DD who used to fight people like Bullseye, the Kingpin, the Hand is now chasing some has been who wants to be the Man with No fear. So uh..yeah...pretty exciting.But wait for's about to get worse. DDD really puts an emphasis on the first "D" (Douchebag, remember?) by changing into this bizarre red suit that looks like it was designed by a possessed Gianni Versace on LSD. It is the stupidest thing I've ever seen. Then he helps out the Owl's Daughter. *sigh* So uh I was incredibly disappointed by the poor quality of this volume. I don't know if he was just bored and thinking up stupid stories to write- because if he was then bravo! Mission accomplished. The artwork is junk-trying far to hard to be trendy and stylish but mirroring the plot in its mediocrity. If this is what DD has come to-I'll pass..I'm going to go back and read the good stuff I missed. This is putrid.

    Still diggin' Waid's wowy-zowy technicolour Daredevil run. This time around there is legal chicanery, actual Evel Knevel-seque motorcycle daredevilry, and an old adversary blows the lid on just a few of Matt's (remaining) secrets from his life and loves in and out of crimefighting persona.And, oh yeah, a new costume that needs to be seen to be believed.Cos the constant changing must have meant constant chafing, right?

    Wade has a thing about characters tied to machines. World: Brilliant art, full of emotion. The world building is quite good. The status quo continues to change and it keeps the book fresh. The anchor of the characters makes this a slice of the MU worth visiting. Story: Solidly grounded on characters and emotions making for a fun and interesting read. The pacing is done well and the banter is absolutely top shelf. The Shroud story is still unappealing to me but this is Wade's story and he loves to keep going back there with Owl so yeah...Characters: Matt is complex and layered and so different from the Bendis, Smith, Brubaker and Miller versions. I like it. McDuffie is still amazing and her chemistry is just sizzling with Matt. Shroud still not a fan, find him boring. The rest of the cast are also solid. Good solid fun read. Onward to the next book!

    Okay, okay, if I averaged out how much I liked the issues in this collection, I would probably rate this as a three-star book. I wasn't that into the stuntman storyline, but ::squeal:: KINGPIN IS BACK! (Obviously I somehow didn't come into contact with spoilers.) I'm really excited to see where the series goes, and I'm once again impressed by how Waid manages to keep the main themes of Daredevil, while treading new ground. Somehow he manages to make his run of Daredevil successfully "the same but different" in a good way. Although Daredevil's identity is now public knowledge, it appears that Daredevil/Matt's enemies are once again able to mess with his life by disclosing his secrets and the secrets of those closest to him, undermining the public's faith in him, and forcing a shady deal with the Kingpin.

    I didn't particularly enjoy either of the stories in this trade which ultimately let me down. Matt also came across as a major jerk in some of the issues which I felt was slightly out of character.

    Mark Waid and Chris Samnee do it again. With only a few issues left after this volume, the walls are beginning to close around Daredevil as the inevitable massive finale gets ever closer.We open with a two part story featuring the Stunt Master which has a few good twists and turns, and once again uses Matt's enhanced senses in new and innovative ways - Waid and Samnee have always managed to make sure every story they tell is a Daredevil story; too easy is it to write street level characters and have it be a story that could feature any of said heroes, but that's never the case with this run of Daredevil.Then comes a three part story that introduces a new Owl, as well as reintroducing The Shroud and the original Owl in time for a superb cliffhanger and some plot developments that threaten to bring everything DD has worked for crashing down around his ears.Of course, Samnee's art is still top notch, what do you expect at this point? Daredevil's awesome, nuff' said.

    MILD SPOILER--You know the point in a TV show, comic or film series, when the main character is dealt such a surprising and damning blow, you can't believe they could be hit so hard?well, that happened to Daredevil probably about fifteen times before Mark Waid took over writing duties.Not to be outdone, Waid gives us that "Oh no, how could they?" moment in this trade, and it is spectacular.It is no wonder Matt Murdock has to make a deal with another Devil, in the next trade, to try and save himself. As always- Wonderful.

    This was good fun and built on the prior run. Matt's new costume has to be seen to be believed. I couldn't stop laughing though it does make twisted sense. The Stunt Master story was fun but the second story has a big impact and completely throws Matt's life in the wringer. Again. No, for real this time. Waid is doing a fine of balancing pathos with humour and it works really well. Good job.

    Another book in Mark Waid's great run on Daredevil. And I've never been a big fan of Chris Samnee but he's changed my mind with his Daredevil run. Marvel should keep Waid and Samnee on this book for as long as they can. They've struck gold.

    Geez, wouldn't it be horrible if someone could totally view or hear anything that ever happened within range of a phone, webcam, computer, or whatever? What a dystopia...

    4.5 Stars, but I'm rounding up to 5 for this one.So. SO. Good. It helps to have Chris Samnee as artist on EVERY issue in this volume. Every panel of his blows me away.

    Daredevil is such a creature of his element--Hell's Kitchen--that the fact Waid and Samsee make this Daredevil-leaves-New-York reboot work is an impressive achievement in itself. That it is as strong as this volume is even more impressive. Returning to Waid's initial promise at the very beginning of his run that this would not be the typical brooding, depressive Daredevil, Matt is actually happy through most of this volume. Personally I think Waid addresses the idea of the superhero with the public identity more effectively and more honestly than I've ever seen in dealing with Matt's choices over this and the preceding two volumes of this reboot. This is great character driven comics.

    What I love about Daredevil is that he spends so much of his time actually helping people. That, and spending time with his friends. That's the superhero dynamic that appeals to me, and that's why I like Daredevil. Also, excellent surprise on the very last page!

    Daredevil You Know collects issues 11-15 from the 2014 run of Dardevil. The first three issues of this trade are actually really good and some of the best yet from this run from writer Mark Waid. Issues 11 and 12 are about Daredevil trying to expose a rogue stuntman who is not the next coming of SuperDave he makes himself out to be. The two issue arc is really well written and had me really coming around on the Marvel Now version of Daredevil. Issue 13 has Murdoch finding his love interest and assistant Kirsten at trouble and by the end of the issue it appears as if the two would be inseparable. Of course that is not how it is meant to be for Murdoch, and issues 14 and 15 take a major hit when he squares off with the latest that Owlsley and the Shroud throw in his face. Oh yeah, Daredevil debuts a new costume in that arc that is somehow uglier than his debut yellow costume. These two issues just seemed messy and came off as a way to write Matt out of San Francisco and back to New York. I do not know if that is how it ends up because there is a hook at the end that I did not care for either. I believe this is the last trade for the Marvel Now version of Daredevil because after issue 15 I believe the series restarted again with 'All-New All-Different' branding of Daredevil. I am done with Daredevil now though, Waid's books have been hits and misses for me and while his good stuff is pretty darn good as indicated by the first three issues in this trade, his misses are also equally as powerful and for now I think I will be best by taking a break from Daredevil for a good while.

    Daredevil: The Daredevil You Know (Mini Comic File)Daredevil it’s me not you (okay it’s probably you)! Mark Waid in Daredevil: The Daredevil You Know continues Matt Murdock’s San Francisco adventure. And Matt faces off with a number of old enemies or new ones, as Matt struggles with the theme of indemnity. A new Stunt-Master has taken the name of the old one who asks Matt to get his name back. But could be a trap when the new Stunt-Master claims he is the man without fear. Then a Matt Murdock, no longer wearing a mask but a totally Moon Knight style suit, works with the Owl’s Father to find her father. The conclusion leads us to question the notion of secrets and identity. How far will Matt go to keep the secrets of those he loves?Really for me this volume does not fit what I like. It feels like it jumps around and Matt comes off as a super jerk. Maybe he is just a super jerk. He cannot deal with the woman he loves or Foggy his best friend without coming off as a massive jerk. Seriously, Kristen, all the women he loves die…run away NOW! And Foggy, you are doing all the heavy work even though everyone thinks you are dead. You are a true ghostly ghost writer. But Matt’s attitude and his new duds just do not work for me, especially when I compare this Daredevil to the Charlie Cox, really loves his friends version of Daredevil.Rating: 2 out of 5 stars

    Daredevil Volume 3: The Daredevil You Know by Mark Waid and Chris Samnee is a fantastic continuation of Waid and Samnee's sure to be classic run. This volume contains two story arcs. One concerns the return of an obscure character called The Stunt Master and the other is the beginning of the final arc that wraps up the overall story of this entire Daredevil run. The Stunt Master narrative is a fun thriller that involves the reader in a series of masterful twists and turns. The beginning issues of the finale give readers a plunging sense of potential despair as Daredevil's life is shattered into pieces. Waid's scripts are expert classes in storytelling. He deftly juggles all the aspects of his main character's history to arrive at the perfect alchemical formula for superhero comics. It is difficult to achieve the fusion of fun escapism and weighty characterization found in these pages. Chris Samnee's art is sensational. Everything from face acting to beautifully stylized action is drawn to perfection under Samnee's graceful hand. This is a true partnership in every sense of the word. I would highly recommend this volume.

    The Daredevil you know continues the saga of Matt Murdoch in San Francisco in Issues 11-15 of the last Mark Waid volume of Daredevil.Issues 11 and 12 feature a return engagement for Stuntmaster, who faced Daredevil several times in the 1970s. There's a mystery as well as an examination of Matt's relationship with one of his long-time frienimies.Issue 13 finds Matt nervous about Kirsten McDuffie, his girlfriend who he fears will face the same sort of fate as past love interests as she appears to be being stalked by a dangerous criminal.Then Issues 14 and 15 feature a bit of a sea change as Matt decides to radically change his look as Daredevil as his outlook as Matt Murdoch. However, his life is subject to some unexpected complications when the daughter of an archenemy turns to him for help and a turn of events sends him desperately to an unexpected source for help.Overall, this penultimate book another solid volume in Waid's run on Daredevil. So much of the character work Waid has done since the last series is coming to fruition here. Overall, this is a superb collection.

    As usual Waid serves up an okay volume of Daredevil.The middle of the book loses gas. This one ends with a cliffhanger that will leave your jaw hanging as well. That being said the new Daredevil duds are so lame.From the cheesy red stupid looking suit right to that dumbass hair cut. Waids lucky hes such a damn good writer cause I actually hated Jublua Prides costume as well.This set of issues also just don't seem to have the depth of some of the darker stuff which has always been when DD is at its best. The ending makes up for Murdocks stupid cockiness giving me sense of relief thinking "oh good its still Waid Daredevil this is just a phase and he just happens to look really stupid is all". Hopefully they have him dawn the classic costume again soon and use this as a plunge to take DD back into the gritty darkness where he kinda belongs. All that aside still a great Daredevil/Waid read.

    Mark Waid and Samnee have created a sure to be legendary run on Daredevil. This volume was simply fantastic. Samnee beautifully illustrates in an old school pulp like fashion the story of Matt Murdock as his life begins to crumble around. What makes this story click is the idea of how mask vigilantes lives are shaken when they take off their mask. Daredevil and his alter ego Matt Murdock are both know to the world. So Matt is in constant fear of his old enemies seeking revenge on his love ones and new enemies testing him to move up in the criminal under world. Matt in this volume is confronted with the conflict of who can he trust and trying to protect his friends. It was especially fun to see Matt look back over his heroic career as he is near finishing his memoir. Mark Waid has really created a night time TV drama out of this book. You really care about all the characters and the cliffhanger at the end was a welcomed bonus. KINGPIN is back, Yes:)

    Waid's just great. I struggle to decide if I prefer Bendis's (who wrote Daredevil-as-we-know-Daredevil perfectly) or Waid's (who wrote Daredevil-like-we've-never-seen-him-before-while-still-staying-really-true-to-the-character) runs, but they're both amazing reads. Waid manages to write a light-hearted book about a dark character by showing more Murdock than usual. Still, inexplicably, it still feels like Daredevil - he's just coping differently, and characters in the book even notice his unually sunny disposition. It explores the apparent character change, develops it, and cements it as a piece of Daredevil as much as Miller's and Bendis's runs. But maybe the strangest thing about Daredevil is the new villains Waid introduces. I'm reviewing the whole run at this point, but it fills out daredevil's admittedly lame rogues gallery with new, interesting supervillains. The whole run is both refreshing and respectful to Daredevil's history.

    Mark Waid's DD run was sold as a bright, swashbuckling change from all those grim stories Matt's lived since Frank Miller first made him matter - a dark tone now taken to an even wider audience by Netflix (I am so hyped for the second season tomorrow). But it seems like, even by superhero standards, there's a gravity that will always pull Daredevil's life down the plughole in new and interesting ways. Which is a shame, because the best bits here are where friends are trying to convince him to stop worrying, and it sucks to see them proved wrong.

  • James

    Our horned hero faces a big reversal that's too sudden to be satisfying. The villain here seems to linger for plot purposes after he should have been put away. I do like Matt's new three-piece costume, but I wish this change in the status quo would have been allowed to linger longer before returning to a familiar big baddy. I enjoy the art and the characters of Waid's Daredevil run, but the plot seems to be spinning its wheels.
