The writing by Steve Gerber was generally excellent and the first story arc featuring Mandrill as the villain was shaping up to be a memorable one but the resolution was more than a bit of a let down. Gerber was letting the Watergate scandal intrude into his story and after a great start and steady build up it jumped the shark with none too subtle political sermonizing. The second major arc with the Death Stalker was better as Gerber (or maybe editor Roy Thomas) keeps his passions from running away with him again. Each arc was bolstered with guest appearances (the Thing in the first, Man-Thing in the second) which bolstered my suspicions that Daredevil needed more support than his cast was giving him. The collection ends with Daredevil permanently back in New York and Foggy Nelson (and newly introduced sister Candace) back in the picture.
The art by Bob Brown was solid but not spectacular. Gene Colan fills in for a few issues which would normally be very welcome. However, in one issue he is paired with inker Vince Colletta and the result is a mess. Perhaps a Colletta rush job?
Extras are a little thin with a house ad and some original art. There is a four page introduction by Mary Skrenes which is a tribute to her late friend Steve Gerber.
Recommended, but not one of the title's better periods. There are 13 issues collected here but the page counts were low in this period so the book comes in under 300 pages which is on the low side by current masterwork standards. At least we're getting through the weaker material quickly.
