New artist
Daredevil (2015-) #595 - Charles Soule,Stefano Landini,Bill Sienkiewicz

Same author - yes! - but new artist.   Landini isn't bad, by far, but I'd really been jamming on Garney's art, so I was a bit bummed that there was an artist switch.   Still, the coloring is the same, which helps this feels more like the previous art, and I can see myself easily getting swept away by Landini's art.   This is my cycle: I grouch about change a lot when it happens, then quickly get accustomed to it, then decide how I really feel.  I may love this artist more than Garney, the same, or a little less.   I'll probably know next month. 

 

Fisk is mayor and what Daredevil is asking is 'how?'   With a side of 'why?'   He wants to try and find that Fisk has cheated, and Matt's boss hands down orders: look into Daredevil and make a case against him.   Because that won't get messy...

 

This is going to be a great cat and mouse game, I can tell it already.  Onto the next issue.

Yes, please!
Daredevil (2015-) #28 - Charles Soule,Ron Garney,Mike Deodato Jr.

One story wraps up while another one is set up: Sam and Matt head back to America after kinda-somewhat dealing with The Beast.   

 

Meanwhile, someone's just been elected Mayor, because the next storyline is Mayor Fisk.   I knew this going in, so there's that wonderful little fact.   I love The Kingpin storylines so I'm really, really looking forward to the next issue. 

 

Soule nails who Daredevil is, while Garney just keeps cranking out art that is sketchy, noir, and dark and that matches Soule's writing perfectly.   Loving this series so much!

Creepy, creepy, creepy
Daredevil (2015-) #27 - Charles Soule,Ron Garney,Mike Deodato Jr.

Soule does the whole mystic thing in a way that meshes with Daredevil.   (Sometimes it's just weird.)   It's creepy, more so because you're going 'no, not Sam, Blindspot just wouldn't do all this!'  

 

Tenfingers is back, somehow and Matt is about to meet the creature that helped Sam get his sight back, and that torments Tenfingers.   Meanwhile Sam tells the story of his background, and how he got to this moment in particular, to a particularly horrified Daredevil. 

 

And that ending.   That ending... wow.  I didn't see that coming and I'm blown away.  I need the next issue now, and I'm moving onto it since I have it on Comixology.

When Blindspot calls Daredevil to China
Daredevil (2015-) #26 - Charles Soule,Ron Garney

Matt knows it's a trap.   Foggy knows it's a trap and keeps reminding Matt of this fact.   But Blindspot lost his eyes, Matt feels guilty and so Daredevil goes. 

 

And of course, he immediately stumbles upon an old enemy and gets in a fight.   

 

Garney is back as illustrator, and I love his art, so, so much.

Big changes
Daredevil (2015-) #25 - Alec Morgan,Charles Soule,Ron Garney

Matt Murdock starts to make big changes for superhero - and all as Matt Murdock, DA, instead of as Daredevil. 

 

With his new ruling, criminals have a lot more to fear.   But there's more to this than that.   This is about the balance between life as Murdock and Daredevil, this is about reconnecting with Foggy and possibly mending that friendship, and this is about The Kingpin, and Tombstone, and setting up a new story and what will happen with at least one of those two. 

 

It's not often that someone out plots The Kingpin, but it's exciting to see it happen and I hope this comes to a  head - and soon.   

 

Still not loving the art, but it's just a style that doesn't mesh with me.   It's kinda a grotesque style - and that is what the style is called, not me making a judgement call on the art - and as such is technically proficient.   It's just not something I like in my DD comics, but the storyline made up for it and I was going to knock it down one-half stars for the art style and me not getting along - but I'm so psyched I'm reading anything, I'm being generous tonight!
