So one thing that bugged me about the new DD reboot was how 'happy' it looked...not that DD can't be happy, but given the circumstances where we last left him, I thought it was a little jarring.

These two pages put my fears to a rest a little bit.

It's a from the back-up story... these two pages bookend it.


Okay, that makes sense. This is how Matt's coping with the tragedies in his life. I was worried that this was going to be a straight-up BND-style reboot but this respects what had come before.

I also liked how people in New York still think that Matt is Daredevil, and it's causing problems for's good to see that the old status quo hasn't been wiped clean, and that there are still repercussions from the previous runs. Even if he's been legally cleared, it's still something hanging over him.

It's like the eighties realized how depressing the 2000s are and decided to make a comeback to make us happy.

And I was so tempted to post scans from this but I knew I wouldn't be the only one, so...
there you go.

It is! That's what it's like!

What a nice thing to happen. I am in favour!

It seems Captain America is coming to confront him in the second issue as well. Man can't take over part of New York with a organization of ninjas and NOT expect repercussions.

Still, its soooo nice to get out of dark/gritty/depressing tone and atmosphere Daredevil has been stuck in for the last decade. Not that Bendis/Brubaker weren't good, but it feels like the kind of fresh, next step forward for the series, like Frank Miller did in the 80s; changing the tone of the series, creating some great issues, with some excellent artwork. Here's hoping Waid/Rivera/Martin are on the book for the long haul.

That is actually extremely interesting. It would be lame if DD got beaten up in the second issue by the more popular hero, but steve just became cap again and will they let daredevil be the first one to beat up the returned captain america. My guess fakeout they hug and make up, and go get snacks.

Okay, I actually did go out and buy this because so many people here were enthused about it.

I didn't like the whole forced-kissing-of-the-bride thing. Other than that, though, not bad.

I like this method of being lighter. It's perfectly understandable that Matt would like to distance himself from the hellhole of the last ten years, even if I'm not entirely sure it's healthy, and it allows for interesting story options.
I very much doubt "possesed by the demon puppet master of an evil ninja clan" will fly with everyone.
Oh, and get him back with Spider-Man, stat.

Yeah, from what I heard from the get-go, it was never meant to not be a retcon of things to get back to a brighter times, but rather to do stories that, to quote Waid, "you didn't feel the need for a stiff drink after every issue."

He also said that, of course, not everyone is going to be so willing to go along with Matt and act like those things ever happened.

Well, it was either that or go into partnership with Jack Daniels.

Sorry but everytime I see that icon the only thing I can think is,

"You promised me a song, little bird. Have you forgotten?"

Dude I LOVED the new comic!

So bright, and the fact that Matt's going to be all, "Right, you know what? Despite everything, I'm going to try and be happy and deal." I can respect that attitude immensely.

I realized recently that I don't like Matt anymore, but I'm looking forward to more of this because I have a feeling it may reminded why I used to.
