On to Brubaker's run!

Bendis doesn't bog the action down with too much dialogue, letting Alex Maleev's amazing artwork tell the story instead.

Excellent collection, worth a read from any fan of great comics or literature.

Format: Paperback
Part three of Brian Michael Bendis's run on Daredevil. Previously, Daredevil beat down Wilson Fisk and declared himself the ruler of Hell's Kitchen and now all the lowlifes and thugs think they could be the next Kingpin.

This volume reprints three previous paperbacks: Daredevil Vol. 11: Golden Age, Daredevil, Vol. 12: Decalogue, and Daredevil Vol. 13: The Murdock Papers (v. 13). In "Golden Age," the old Kingpin, the first major crimelord before Wilson Fisk, is let out of jail and tries to regain his lost territory. In "Decalogue," a support group discusses how Daredevil has affected their lives. Then, in "The Murdock Papers," everyone is racing to get a hand on Fisk's files on Matt Murdock.

The book is almost perfect. Golden Age is so great I could hardly put it down. Decalogue, it became boring to read through and might be the weakest of all of these stories. Then all of Daredevil's major characters appear for the climax of the Murdock Papers and it's a fantastic end to the Bendis's impressive run. The book also contains a few extra stories "What if Karen Page had lived?" and Ultimate Marvel Team Up (Daredevil + Punisher + Spiderman).

A year and a half ago, I set out to find new Daredevil stories to match Frank Miller's seminal run on the character. Brian M. Bendis might not have matched Miller, but it feels as close as anyone's going to get.

Format: Paperback
Between Brian Michael Bendis's risk-taking plots and pitch perfect, Mamet-like dialogue, and the heightened realism of Alex Maleev's virtuoso artwork, which is inspired by equal parts cinema, television, and police photography, the duo's 2001-2006 run on DAREDEVIL produced the finest hardboiled crime comic of the new millennium, and issued a formidable challenge to successive writer/artist teams on that book. (I'm still waiting for a post-Bendis DD story arc that doesn't feel anticlimactic.) The third volume in this series wraps up the Bendis/Maleev run with three major stories and two bonus features, all of them packing a nasty punch.

"The Golden Age" shuttles between three time periods to tell the story of Alexander Bont, a brutal mobster who made himself the first Kingpin of crime in the 1940s. Released after decades of imprisonment, the elderly killer returns to Hell's Kitchen, obsessed with his former attorney Matt Murdock and hellbent on revenge.

"Decalogue", set largely in a church basement, is a superb mash-up of Boccaccio, film noir, and Japanese horror movies, with a significant nod to art-house director Krzysztof Kieslowski's exquisite character studies. In a set of oblique meditations on five of the Ten Commandments (the first, fifth, sixth, eighth, and ninth, if you're wondering), a group of Kitchen residents discuss the impact of Daredevil on their lives, and in the process reveal their own most painful and frightening secrets.

In "The Murdock Papers" the imprisoned Kingpin (Wilson Fisk) and the FBI are locked in a ruthless battle of wits, with Matt Murdock's freedom as the prize.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I have always longed for the kind of storytelling and delivery that Brian Michael Bendis and Alex Maleev brought with this third volume and the two previous. They mix it up in terms of the artwork in this one, which is refreshing although Maleev is officially number one in my book after benefiting from his indelible style. After completing this book I am disappointed that Marvel did such a poor job creating Matt Murdock in the Daredevil film of 2003. Hopefully it will go the route of batman and restore some silver screen credibility to this untapped well. If you haven't read the first two books I would highly recommend you start from the beginning and go from there.

It is due to this and the previous two volumes that I went back and purchased Frank Miller's "Born Again" and "The Man Without Fear" among others titles. You cannot lose by grabbing not only this title but also the previous two collections that cements the man without fear on the map. Bendis keeps it dark here folks and only devils can reign in the blackness.

The only thing that is bad about this final book was that it ended, find it, read it...and then read it again.

Format: Paperback
This concludes the amazing run by Bendis on this book, beginning with scenes from a support group for ordinary people whose lives have been affected by Daredevil's adventures. It's very compelling stuff that epitomizes what I love most about this collection: it deals with real-world impacts of a man doing what Daredevil does without getting too caught up in super-powers or world threats or always trying to do the next big thing.

Reporter Ben Urich is just as stressed out by Daredevil's troubles as DD himself, and we see the Kingpin make his return and escalate things even further.

I loved seeing Matt Murdock stick to his guns and continue to deny he is Daredevil even as the evidence keeps filling up the newspapers, and any time you get a fight that involves Daredevil, Elektra, Black Widow and Bullseye all at once, I'm in. Bendis doesn't bog the action down with too much dialogue, letting Alex Maleev's amazing artwork tell the story instead.

Bendis finishes his run the only way he could have after what he started in the first volume of this collection, and it makes you want to go out and pick up the Ed Burbaker collections as well to see what happens next, which I'd highly advise.
