I'd say this is the most lush and gorgeous art that Noto has done, but that's unfair to Noto: his art tends to be pretty uniformly gorgeous. Â Breathtaking all the time. Â There were certain images here, though, that vied for all time favorite: a discolored image of a library in muted, eerie greens, Daredevil's mask haloed in red that made me stop on that particular panel.
And of course, it all works in combination with Soule's art, running along at a, well, breathtaking pace as Matt barrels along with a newfound sense of morality - or newfound again, as I believe he has this crises every once in a while - and still is as reckless as ever regardless. Â He has to do what he can with the time he has left, after all.
The fact that this is called the Death of Daredevil and the next ongoing DD series does not seem to be about Matt Murdock? Â It makes this a little more: a little more tense, a little more aware that Daredevil is being not only reckless, but stupidly reckless. ÂI should feel disdain for him, and me and my sister are camped out in her room, hiding from the fighting - yay Thanksgiving :/ - making fun of how reckless Murdock is. And yet all I am is worried about him: seems as if he’s not going to make it, Marvel isn’t hiding it, and I want him to survive.
Bless Marvel, they’ll realize he’s a mainstay and bring him back eventually, but I’m not looking forward to my Inhuman-less, Matt Murdock-less years…
Charles Soule is one of my favorite writers, and Phil Noto is one of my favorite artists - so having them together writing one of my favorite characters is fantastic.
This storyline is great and the art is superb, as always when it comes to Noto.
Loving this storyline, although I hate that this, like Transformers, is ending. It's bittersweet because I know a little about what's going to come from hints of other series, and the title of this storyline.
But I'm going to enjoy it while I still have it!
