    One thought on “Daredevil: The Devil's Hand”

    1. Wow, this is the really real. To think that Daredevil agrees to lead the Hand. Things must be pretty dire for Daredevil to get in bed with the enemy. Well things are. Hell's Kitchen is looking a lot like the real thing, and Murdock realizes that conventional methods of obtaining justice are doomed to fail. He's willing to take extreme measures, but like Frank Sinatra, he's going to do it "My Way." Beware of best laid plans, Matt.This was a really good graphic novel. It was very intense, and the [...]

    2. Trace Matt Murdock’s story since Kevin Smith took the reins on the title—through the runs by Brian Michael Bendis and Ed Brubaker—and the narrative reads a little bit like a good old fashioned beat down. The DAREDEVIL writers of recent years simply won’t allow the Man Without Fear to catch his breath.And Andy Diggle’s first major story arc for our hero is shaping up to ensure that he won’t be getting up any time soon.Now the head of the ninja organization, The Hand, Daredevil continu [...]

    3. This book has a way of making me want to like it, but it just refuses to let me. Broken down to its core elements, it's a great story, but it's told so badly. And why are there so many unexplained changes since the last volume. Norman Osbourne is suddenly running the whole city? When did this happen? Why is Bullseye walking around Avengers Tower in Hawkeye's costume? Since when is Jameson Mayor? None of this is explained, the reader is treated like we already understand these things, but this wa [...]

    4. Fun, fascinating ride through the depths of The Hand for our favourite soul-tortured hero. However, it doesn't take long for the "has Matt turned amoral?" question to be resolved (not how I wanted it to go). And then we (too early I think) start hearing the back channel chatter between the folks behind the curtain, and all mystery is thus dispelled. I prefer the stories (like with Fraction's Iron Fist) where you wonder why things don't seem quite right but it takes much longer to find out what's [...]

    5. Hmm. I was warned by the guy that let me borrow all these Daredevil comics that the series goes downhill once Andy Diggle takes over. The Devil's Hand continues Matt Murdock's brutal, sad story. Matt's the new leader of The Hand, and this arc deals with his leadership there. His plan is to take out The Hand from within, but things never go as planned.The writing is relatively clunky and the action itself is somewhat cheesy. The art is pretty cool, but there's not enough suspense/drama that I've [...]

    6. Not as immediately gripping as the preceding volumes by Bendis and Brubaker, Andy Diggle's run nevertheless posits a compelling new status quo for Daredevil by putting him at the head of The Hand to reform/destroy them from within. Fascinating time at Marvel, with Norman Osborn leading HAMMER and totalizing the systemic corruption of the MU - no wonder Daredevil can't catch a break.

    7. De chaval apenas leía cómics que no fueran los Mortadelos, 13 Rue del percebe, Superlopez, Asterix y más o menos cualquier cosa que viniera en los tomos aquellos de superhumor. Lo único que tenia aparte de aquello, de cómic americano, era el Alpha Flight de Byrne y cosas sueltas de Daredevil. Dicho lo cual, no volvi a interesarme por el comic hasta rondar la treintena y mas o menos con el estreno de la infame película sobre Daredevil que me dio por recuperar al personaje.Por aquella época [...]

    8. Andy Diggle has a phenomenal grasp of Daredevil, and this first collection of the author's stories about my favorite comic book hero exceeded all of my expectations. It begins with a one-shot from the Dark Reign era, where Norman Osborn did random evil things while superheroes complained about how bad things were, but the story actually matters in this case, as it ends with a traumatic event (and even with a silly set-up, the event is powerful and devastating) that leads directly into the next s [...]

    9. (Actually a review of DAREDEVIL issues 501-507.)Andy Diggle gamely picks up the challenge left to him by his predecessor, Ed Brubaker: Daredevil is now the leader of the criminal organization The Hand, and has apparently gone over to the dark side. For me, this "arc" of DD seemed to lose a lot of steam. There are a few engaging bits, but overall the story lacks focus and jumps around too much. More fundamentally, writing Daredevil as a bad guy who's not REALLY a bad guy is probably impossible to [...]

    10. Wow! Andy Diggle takes over from Ed Brubaker as the writer of Daredevil and starts out with a bang. Collecting Daredevil: Dark Reign - The List and issues 501 to 507 of the main Daredevil series, this book is quite a read and boasts amazing art by Billy Tan, Roberto De La Torre and Marco Checchetto. It also serves as a bridge between the end of Brubaker's run and the events of "Shadowland" . In "The List", H.A.M.M.E.R. director Norman Osborn sends Bullseye to kill Daredevil, and issues 501 - 507 [...]

    11. Diggle offers a story in two parts. There's good art throughout, particularly with Roberto De Le Torre is doing the pencils, and interesting writing as well.The Fight in Hell's Kitchen (List, 501-504). It's impressive how directly this continues on from Brubaker's run, with The Hand and the Kingpin squaring off over Hell's Kitchen. Plus, we get the delightful intervention of the Dark Reign storyline, which just makes everything more complex. This story somehow manages all of that complexity, pre [...]

    12. It's no easy task following in the footsteps of Bendis and Brubaker, but even so you'd think Andy Diggle would at least try to keep the tone of Daredevil consistent with what it's been for the past several years. Instead, you get cliche (and occasionally downright stupid) dialogue and plot twists that barely hold up. Instead of existing in the monumental change Brubaker set forth (Daredevil gaining control of the Hand), Diggle works as hard as possible to lower the stakes and keep Daredevil on t [...]

    13. Well, the good run had to end somewhere. Diggle just doesn't measure up to Smith, Bendis, and Brubaker. His plotline (which involves Daredevil taking over the Hand) makes no logical sense. And I don't mean the story itself, I mean in execution.It also feels like a substantial retread of what has gone on before. Daredevil went bad a "took over" for a villain (but with noble aspirations) during the King of Hell's Kitchen arc. And the Daredevil here doesn't even seem to remember that, or the way th [...]

    14. La premisa de este tomo me hizo acordar un poco a la de la quinta temporada de Angel: bueno recontrabueno pero con un cacho de maldad adentro y en busca de redención se pone al frente de una organización de turros recontraturros que buscan dominar el mundo, más o menos. Pero la ejecución de esta misma idea me pareció mucho mejor llevada en la serie de Whedon y Greenwalt que en este aceptable tomo de Diggle y cía. Igual, me gustó bastante más que Tierra de Sombras, aunque comparten varios [...]

    15. Wow was this disappointing. Raised on Miller's DD, and having spent the last several years immersed in first Bendis' and then Brubaker's brilliant, intelligent, landmark runs on ol' Hornhead reading Diggle's immature, schlocky work is just downright painful.Where as Bendis' dialogue was masterful, Diggle's is hamhanded. Where Brubaker's plotting and character interactions were sublime, Diggle's are insipid. This is flat out bad. Feels like I'm reading something from an early '90s Image comic.Dep [...]

    16. This has been one of the best runs in comics, starting when Bendis took over the title. It has changed hands a few times (Brubaker, now Diggle), but the main premise has been constant: what's the worst thing that could possibly happen to Matt Murdock? If you like street crime, superheroes, great dialogue and action, then pick it up.
