The award-winning DAREDEVIL series written by Mark Waid hits issue #25 this week, and to celebrate we’re bringing you some of the best issues from the critically acclaimed run. With artists like Paolo Rivera, Chris Samnee, Marcos Martin, Khoi Pham and Mike Allred in charge of art, these books pack both stellar stories and stunning visuals. Will your super senses be able to handle this superb sensory overload?
Wedding bells ring as Matt Murdock watches a mob wedding in all of its slimy splendor, and thanks to his ever-handy radar senses, foils the Spot’s kidnapping attempt. While DD handles the tricky teleporter with ease, things don’t go so well upon his return to the legal world. The prodigal son comes back to Hell’s Kitchen, but can the crimson clad crusader still hack it in the Big Apple after his self-imposed sabbatical? Mark Waid spins a tale of acrobatic exploits and courtroom intrigue in his first awesome issue!
After a rocky restart as Hell’s Kitchen’s premier “not a super hero” attorney, Matt finally seems to have hit his stride, both at the bench and on the streets. Facing down a pen full of angry lions at 2 AM? Cakewalk. Saving babies from an all-consuming conflagration? All in a day’s work. But when he takes on a blind client from Midas Investments—a client who may have overheard a couple of Latverian investors speaking about some very unsavory things—well that’s when the real dangerous work begins, and Marcos Martin captures all the action and drama in immaculate detail.

Paolo Rivera takes the artistic reigns as Daredevil finds himself behind enemy lines, trapped deep within the bowels of Latveria’s Castle Doom for crimes against the crown. There, Chancellor Exchequer Beltane subjects Matt to an odorless, tasteless treat with unknown properties before setting him free, only to send the royal army after, guns blazing. As the Man Without Fear sprints through the streets he realizes that the gas slowly robs him of his super senses. Will he make it to the border, will the Avengers find him and save the day, or will he be made an example of for all of those who would defy Latveria’s will?
Matt recounts one of his early exploits, an all out brawl with the long-legged Stilt-Man. The C-list villain had been hired to ransack Foggy’s office and steal a tape with privileged information on it, an act Daredevil didn’t take kindly to. The resulting battle pits a horned acrobat against an impossibly tall mechanical man on stilts through the streets of New York City. The inimitable Mike Allred brings you this rousingly outlandish combat in all of its surreal glory in an issue that you absolutely need to read!
