Being a Marvel junkie, I always look forward to picking up new #1s. Daredevile #1 was no different. After I read the OH preview I was a little skeptical to read this issue. The preview art was good, but the small sample of writing left me unfullfilled.
Now that I'm done the FULL issue, all my skepticism is gone! I loved the upbeat, positive Matt Murdock. It was a refreshing change from the 'norm' of the past 10-15 years. Over and over, Matt denied being Daredevil, and that made me chuckle
I too was happy to see some courtroom action, and I hope we see much more in the future. Reading about a hero's regular life keeps them 'real' to the reader.
Like everyone, I loved the new visual perception of DD's radarsense (very cool idea). Rivera's storytelling (especially the Spot sequence) is dynamite. I wasn't 100% sold as him as the artist, but now that I've read the issue all together, I really enjoyed it.
Plus, I thought the back-up story was a cute look into Matt and Foggy's relationship.
