Daredevil #510 Review

Written by GLX on Saturday, September 11 2010 and posted in Reviews

Check out GLX's review of Daredevil #510.

Writers - Andy Diggle and Antony Johnston
Artist - Marco Checchetto
Colorist - Matt Hollingsworth

Since issue #508, Daredevil has been heavily tied-in to Shadowland. After all, the central figure of the crossover is Daredevil himself. That's not to say that his own title has become a simple b-side companion piece to Shadowland. Like the last two issues before it, Daredevil #510 is centered around Dakota North and Foggy Nelson. Sure, there are scenes that weave in and out of Shadowland; but the main focus of Daredevil has been Dakota and Foggy's struggle to survive in Hell's Kitchen. Operatives from The Hand have been after them because of their connection to Daredevil.

Andy Diggle and Antony Johnston do a solid job of making things gel with Shadowland, in more ways than one. The plot is consistent, the characters act naturally and the tone of the story matches the tone of Shadowland. Dakota and Foggy's struggles are interesting, but I found Black Tarantula's scenes to be the most engaging. He has been the voice of reason, in Daredevil's inner circle. It's interesting to see him against the growing chaos and overall presence of evil in Hell's Kitchen.

Marco Checchetto steps in for Roberto De La Torre and handles the task with ease. Checchetto's style is different, but it fits with Diggle and Johnston's script. What makes the transition from De La Torre to Checchetto seamless is Matt Hollingsworth's work. Hollinsworth has provided the colors on Daredevil for a while and he makes the comic look sharp. His work really shines during the talk between Daredevil and Black Tarantula. The way that he uses various shades of black and red are fantastic.

Daredevil #510 is another great tie-in to Shadowland; yet I imagine that those who're just buying the tie-in issues (on their own) will be satisfied. This comic is not essential to Shadowland, but it does provide a rewarding experience to those that buy the two titles. Hopefully, Diggle and Johnston can keep making Daredevil a satisfying read.

7.8* out of 10*
