​​​​​​​Daredevil: Volume 3 (Marvel Comics, 2011; #11-15)

The Man without Fear is back to deal with organized crime once and for all.

  • To do so, he teams up with Spider-Man and The Punisher for a street-heroes vs. super-crime free-for-all.
  • And to destroy the Omega Drive.
  • Then Matt faces even scarier circumstances: a date!
  • Things keep escalating until Daredevil finds himself on the lam in Latveria.
  • Through it all, Matt Murdock does his best to keep his chill.
  • Checchetto’s style is a departure from Samnee and Pham’s, but it fits the darker crossover story—and all their pages look great.

Waid’s run on Daredevil continues to be fantastic.  He continues to push Matt into dark places here to test his new lease on life, and I don’t know how much longer it will hold.
