This has been an amazing start for Daredevil and with Zdarsky and Checchetto creating a Daredevil story worthy of the legacy of Matt Murdock.
Checchetto’s use of darker colors has been a unique view of a darker Daredevil, one that definitely feels like he is back for action and he, for once is not intentionally holding back. He has been off the game for a while and it feels like he wants a piece of the action for a single reason (even if he tried to justify it with another). It almost feels like Daredevil is an addict for seeking pain.
The writing from Zdarsky has also brought into light the element that makes Matt Murdock one of the greatest. By giving us a certain view of Murdock’s early age as a young defendant of the innocent we see that Matt’s righteous path did not start after his accident but he was always on it.
A lawyer with the highest regard for the law conflicted on a daily basis for breaking the law but from his point of view, someone has too. This is the story of Matt Murdock Zdarsky and Checchetto bring to life with their Daredevil #1.
This could also work as a great jump on point since it requires no past explanation or knowledge.
Can’t wait to read the next one!
