The above review says that "Wake Up" was part of the DD Vol. 2 HC. It was not, although it was released in a TPB. The DD HC Vol. 2 starts with "Underboss," Bendis' second arc. I was actually glad that Marvel included "Wake Up" at the end, since it got rid of that annoying TPB in the midst of the HCs on my shelf. Also, "Wake Up" is a wonderful story in its own right, and deserves to be read--and timeless enough to be read at either end of the continuity.

That's my opinion, anyway--5 stars just to boost the rating a little.

"Wake Up" (4 issues/art by David Mack) is not reprinted in HC format. It was printed as a tpb, but is not, and was not to my knowledge, ever included in any previous Daredevil HC.
This HC also collects Bendis last arc on DD, "The Murdock Papers" (6 issues/Alex Maleev) and also "What if Karen Page had lived"(came out in 2005), plus some "extras" including full comic scripts to Bendis first and last issues, some artwork from Alex Maleev and David Mack and a "farewell" article from Bendis.

"The Murdock Papers" is pretty good and very exciting, though really I wish I've gotten it in tpb form. It's a very fun read though!
"Wake Up" is alright as well, but it is not a continuation of the main storyline but rather a past story featuring mostly Ben Urich, with a minimal appearance by DD in the last issue. Unique artwork by David Mack. I suggest reading it first, because if you expect a DD or action oriented story, prepare to be severely dissapointed.

The What If featured is also by Bendis and is quite pedestrian (in light of what has already occured...), and half of the story is spent recapping the death of Karen Page before actually presenting the story. Art by Michael Lark, DD regular artist under Brubaker.

I wet my pants when I read this. I'm not going to be able to hold back the superlatives here. The final arc of Brian Bendis' Daredevil run is such a perfect capstone to such an amazing story. I don't believe super-hero comics have ever been taken this far to their logical conclusions. Bendis manages to have it all--the incredibleness of having super-powers, the magic of a world with aircraft carriers that float in the sky and ninjas fighting NYC cops in broad daylight, combined with a fascinating realism: the realism that takes seriously the concept of having a secret identity as a super-hero.

The entire Daredevil series by Bendis represents nothing short of a revolution in mainstream comics. It re-sets the bar by which all other comics must be judged, and it re-frames the entire concept of super-hero books. All the themes that were originally introduced by Stan Lee in a simplistic way back in the day (represented best by Spider-Man)-- the tension of the secret identity, the strain that puts on the hero's "normal" relationships, the sense of obligation to use powers, the conflict between the vigilante and society--all of these are re-cast for the modern era in an incredibly vivid mold with an added expectation of realism.

This last book takes all that to the wall. The plotline revolving around Daredevil's secret identity being revealed and DD's conflict with the Kingpin finally reaches its climax and it is done on a grand scale. It is a ton of fun to see so many of DD's buddies, ex-girlfriends, enemies and whatnot jammed into a bag and shaken. The scenes with Elektra and the Black Widow are so cool. The dialog just crackles with energy. The artwork is, as usual for Alex Maleev, simply amazing.

This is pure genius on so many levels. The entire Bendis run is quite simply essential and this book is a marvelous and stunning conclusion to such an epic masterpiece.

this book contains the story-arcs: "the murdock papers", "wake up", and the single-issue "what if karen page had lived?".
basically, the murdock papers is really awesome (like all of bendis' work on daredevil) and as it stands i'd give it 4 1/2 stars--its not perfect cause it has too many unrealistically-played guest-appearances throughout, making the last few issues a little claustrophobic.

then the low point comes with bendis' first arc in his daredevil history, wake up, which is beautifully painted but features bendis' worst daredevil story. the plot creeps along at a snails pace, and after each issue you think "who cares! that was just like the last issue." i can't believe bendis loves that story most out of all his others in the run. i'd give "wake up" 3 1/2 stars.

then the "what if?" story is pretty good...except it kinda contradicts the whole concept of the murdock papers. i'd give it 5 stars.
