Daredevil: Identity (Marvel Comics, 2015; #15-20)

Daredevil Soule 4.jpeg
  • Feeling guilty about Blindspot’s fate after the last arc, Matt puts out a hit on himself to lure in the only person who might have a means to help his protege.
  • This also leads Daredevil back to church, where a priest with a surprising approach to outreach in his parish puts Matt on the path to understanding why he does what he does.
  • And Matt reveals how he managed to un-ring the bell that is his secret identity (and no, it wasn’t Mephisto).
  • Soule has done a great job with Daredevil so far, but this arc defines what his version of the character is and what this run is about; as far as theses go, it’s an exciting one.
  • Sudžuka, Garney, Laming, Milla, and Mrva’s art leverages and strengthens the book’s jumps in time, location, and reality, leaning into different color palettes and styles with each new setting.
