Daredevil #15

   So which is better - the lighthearted Daredevil (last seen in the Mark Waid / Chris Samnee series) or the darker version now inhabiting the series under the guidance of Charles Soule and Goran Sudzuka?

   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.

Grade: A-
