Daredevil #500

So Ed Brubaker and Michael Lark end their run on Daredevil with issue #500. Loved the ending but I can't help but compare it to The Murdock Papers. Bendis' last arc was awesome! But ok, the point here is that Ed Brubaker simply did an excellent job carrying the "Billy Club". Bru just made the Daredevil mythos even more Marvelous!!!

I loved every page! But I hope they didn't put too much of the reprints inside the book... This was just expensive! I still loved it though. The gatefold cover by Marko Djurdjevic rocked!!!

Spoliers ahead. Skip the ===== for the free from spoilers part.


I just want to highlight some points from "Return of The King"

1. Matt's life is just going down the drain. He lost Milla, Dakota, and Foggy. So submitting to The Hand's offer was a perfect way to end it.

2. The Owl getting stabbed - Holy $#%& moment there. (To the non-comic book reading folk, I'm sorry but fanboys just call wow moments holy $#%& moments)

3. Lady Bullseye - force to be reckoned with!!! Can't wait to see more of her!

4. THE KINGPIN IS BACK!!! - I think it's awesome that his dead wife Vanessa is still haunting him.

5.The page turners - you didn't know if anyone would die! But thankfully none of the good guys did. Thanks Bru!


To Mr. Ed Brubaker and Mr. Michael Lark - thanks for this amazing run!!! Lady Bullsye and The Mr. Fear arcs were my favorites!!! It's just sad that you concluded your run so early...

Good luck to Andy Diggle and Billy Tan!!!
