This is the spoiler free review of Daredevil: End of Days. For the spoiler full review with lots and lots of pictures go here.
Daredevil: End of Days is the mystery told directly after Daredevil’s violent death on the streets of Hell’s Kitchen. Bullseye has finally caught up to our hero and ends their ongoing battle in a prolonged public fight. Daredevil utters one word before his final breath, “Mapone.”
What or who is Mapone? What does it mean for Daredevil or Matt Murdock? Why does it trigger Bullseye? My favorite Marvel reporter, Ben Urich, is on the case.
Urich is tasked with writing the final definitive article about Daredevil. He visits all of Matt Murdock’s old lovers and all of Daredevil’s worst enemies to find any clues about where he has been the last few years and what Mapone means for his death.
We learn a lot about the whole cast of Hell’s Kitchen characters. If you are previously familiar with Daredevil prior to this arc this will be a treat. Bendis and Mack have full backstories for what all of these characters have been doing since Daredevil has been out of the picture. Most of them have been thriving without the sometimes destructive nature of a relationship with Mr. Murdock.
This arc is a solid mystery and has as much action as emotion. One of the best Daredevil arcs I’ve read yet. And the art! Oh my goodness the art! It’s spectacular. Example, the text doesn’t matter right now, just look at those colors!
I highly recommend this for any fans of Daredevil, however to get the most out of it it is probably not the best place to start with the character.
