It's a tough call, because both versions have a lot to recommend them.
The dark version has been compelling, with sharp, clever storytelling and unexpected twists - but it certainly is grim.
Following the last storyline, which ended with a terrible injury to Daredevil's "apprentice" Blindspot, we find Matt Murdock having a strange reaction to the event - and now there's a bounty on Daredevil's head, which gets a lot of attention from the underworld.
The art is powerful and the story is... well, unexpected. And oh, that final panel.
So which is better? Well, I admit that I probably prefer the lighter version - but if we can't have that, this is powerful stuff, too.
