Don't get me wrong the stories found in this book are simply fantastic and Michaels Lark's art looks amazing especially with this larger format. Yet for the amount of issues and the size of this book the price seems unmerited. If you are like me though then you can not wait to read these stories and you can take comfort that the production value is omnibus standard and the stories are Brubaker standard. Great and great.

The second part of Brubaker's run on DD. The beginning arc is about Murdock getting over his self destructive depression and the second half is basically all ninja action (kinda reminding me of Frank Miller's stuff). Not as much exploring the character as Bendis had, but way more fighting. Pretty okay that ends on a huge cliffhanger.

Ed Brubaker and Michael Lark's run on "Daredevil" (ah, how unusual it has become to speak of a run by both a writer and an artist) concludes with this second Omnibus volume, collecting issues 105 to 119 and 500 (thanks to renumbering) of the ongoing series, as well as a one-shot comic spotlighting supporting character Black Tarantula. It is rather slimmer than the first volume, but then, Brubaker's run ended, so there isn't anything to be done about that, and the writing and art remain at the same level of quality as in the first volume, though they venture into some markedly different aspects of the Daredevil mythos. The contents of this omnibus were previously collected into the trades "Cruel and Unusual", "Lady Bullseye", and "The Return of the King". Some spoilers follow.

The collection begins, fittingly enough, with an issue bringing the reader up to date on Matt Murdock's recent emotional state, which could be succinctly described as terrible. More elaborately, in the events of the preceding volume he spent time in prison, attempted to get his life back, and in the end a supervillain drove his wife Milla irretrievably insane and avoided any real punishment for his crimes. The series then begins an arc with Brubaker's old "Gotham Central" partner on hand to co-write once again, which gives Matt something of a normal case for the first time in a while, and lays the groundwork for some major developments in Matt's life with the private investigator Dakota North (Greg Rucka's involvement no doubt helped with this; he loves him some tough chicks).

With that done and Rucka departed, Brubaker continues on into the final year-long story arc of his run on the series, the arcs "Lady Bullseye" and "The Return of the King", which are essentially one story in two parts.

The always sarcastic Master Izo, gazing at a swinging away Daredevil: "And there goes the whiniest super hero I ever met..."

Warning: If you haven't been keeping up with current DAREDEVIL issues, this is a SPOILER ALERT for the following paragraph. You just may want to skip it.

As Marvel hypes its Shadowland arc - which is supposed to establish the Man Without Fear as a leading supervillain - we at last get our grubby hands on the DAREDEVIL OMNIBUS Vol. 2, this mammoth edition reprinting issues #106-119, #500 and also DAREDEVIL ANNUAL #1 and the one-shot DAREDEVIL: BLOOD OF THE TARANTULA. As we take a look back to not that long ago, we note the sense of foreboding. We track the events which culminate in Daredevil's turning ruthless heel.

Okay, the massive SPOILER ALERT ENDS.

Daredevil's world had progressively gotten so bleak and dark that even the Crow has taken to dropping by to tell him to cheer up (but I kid). Matt Murdock and that peace of mind continue their icy relationship. Some time ago, when Frank Miller and David Mazzucchelli were running things, the Kingpin sussed out Daredevil's secret identity and went about methodically destroying his life. A few years ago, the public itself learned that Daredevil is Matt Murdock. And then dude went to prison.

Most recently his wife Milla became maddened, thanks to Mr. Fear's ministrations, and now she's instituted in an insane asylum, a stranger to her right mind. And so for Matt Murdock it's a case of "Hello, old friend." He unravels again, and even his friends find it tough going as they try to pull him out of the abyss. Except Matt doesn't want their help. He'd rather subliminate all the crapdoodle that's festooned his life, would rather cling to his not-so-secret identity.
