Daredevil #1 Is A Great New Chapter But A Not-So-Great Jumping On Point

Marvel has relaunched Daredevil’s ongoing series with a #1 issue by Chip Zdarsky and Marco Checchetto. Published the problem and called it “perfect for both newbies as well as long-time readers.” Daredevil #1 was not only the perfect jumping-on point to an “all-new era” in Daredevil stories but also the next chapter of Zdarsky’s highly-acclaimed series chronicling the exploits of the Man Without Fear, now in its fourth year. Unsurprisingly, one of these things was true.

Although Daredevil #1 is a successful way to lay the foundation for the home stretch for the Zdarsky/Checchetto-run, it’s less effective as a gateway.

A brief one-page summary is all new readers need to know about the events in Daredevil’s previous volume. This was canceled in November 2021, and the Elektra: Woman Without Fear series.

They are dropped right into the story, expecting to be up to speed with all that has happened in Matt MMurdock’slife. Zdarsky and Rafael Delatorre also write a back story that helps to fill in the gaps about key supporting characters Elektra or Stick. However, even this story is targeted at the existing readership.

Daredevil #1, if you’re a member of that group, is quite literally a completely different story. You wwon’tbe restricted by second-guessing each panel and can simply absorb ZZdarsky’ssolid scripting. It is full of great dialogue, brief action scenes, and flashes from the sscribe’strademark sense of humor. ZZdarsky’sstage-setting elements in Daredevil #1 will make you more excited than baffled. He moves pieces around the board to create the current aarc’ssupernaturally oriented direction. IIt’sclear that there’s a master plan in play, and iit’sgreat fun to watch it unfold.
