Artist: Ron Garney
Colorist: Matt Milla
Publisher: Marvel Comics
It’s part two to Dark Art and I had high hopes this was the arc that was going to help Daredevil find his grove but yet again we are sadly disappointed. Everything is so long and drawn out, and the story is so incredibly dry. It’s part two and still not much has happened in the story which really kills my enthusiasim to keep reading.
The one thing I have always liked about Daredevil is he’s always had a ton of charisma but Charles Soule seems to have lost that. The way he is writing Daredevil it’s so flat and almost emotionless. He doesn’t really give you any reason to invest in the characters and care about whats going on. He’s just going through the motions. We are 11 issues in and still have not been let on to how Daredevil got everyone to forget his not so secret identity. It’s almost like Soule just wants us to forget that even happened and just accept that this is how it is now. No one knows, well except for one person. Will we ever find out how, at this point I’m not holding my breath.
This issue didn’t sit well with me for I’m not a big fan of Marvel’s need to make the Inhumans popular, and now we are getting a Daredevil story arc devoted to them. The idea of the art and using peoples blood etc was a really unique idea and had potential. But now with the Inhumans tossed in, I’m not really interested anymore.
I’m still not a fan of the art for this series either. I do enjoy Ron Garney’s pencils and like how he’s taking Daredevil back to the darker and more edgy look that the character had become so know for. But I am not a fan of Matt Milla’s colors. It’s so flat and boring that combined with the lacklustre story, I have trouble really getting into this series.
This series is not bringing anything exciting and this issue especially is a lot of nothing happening. I think it’s time for a creative team shuffle up. This series may be some peoples taste but it is definitely not mine, which is a shame because Daredevil is my all time favourite.
