Would think this was a little wordy but I really liked this book. I have gotten into daredevil since the Netflix show and I have to say i really enjoy it
Drugs explain away out of character moments, plot-holes are hand-waved out of existence, and most of it is overwritten. Sometimes the writing works with Mr. Smith throwing thinly veiled references to his film career and the moments with Matt's mom are great, but the ending feels like a gigantic cheat.
On the other hand, the art really saves it. This is the first time I've seen Joe Q's art and it's quite stylish: a mix of Frank Miller and Bruce Timm. The digital ink also gives the book some rich color that I've never seen on Daredevil. Even though he makes Daredevil look like a thumb, Black Widow is absolutely poured into her costume.
I'm becoming a Daredevil completionist. For completionist fans, I can only advise you to buy it later. Don't splurge and get it right away, wait until you have the extra cash. For the casual fans, I'd say skip it. If you were a fan of Bendis' run on Daredevil and want to get this because this was the launching point, I still say give it a pass. Bendis and Smith have clashing styles and you're not going to enjoy it. Other than "than one important thing," nothing is essential in this book.
I'm tempted to give it a 4, because the art is really stunning, but the writing doesn't hold up. It might have broken new ground ten years ago, but we've come a long way since then.

The bad: It's not HC so the cover starts softening after first read.
La pareja formada por Kevin Smith (escritor) y Joe Quesada (dibujante) entregan una historia, que si bien no es tan oscura al estilo de Frank Miller, sorprende al lector de forma positiva en diversas ocasiones. En particular, este comic viene en una presentación de tapa blanda, excelentemente encuadernada, el arte viene impreso en papel algo brillante que hace destacar el excelente trabajo de Quesada.
En definitiva, Guardian Devil tiene lo necesario para llegar a ser una historia increíble para los fans de Daredevil. Solo un consejo, antes de leer este comic asegúrate de leer antes Daredevil: Born Again de Frank Miller, de esta forma podrás entender mejor el progreso de Karen Page, la novia de DD.
