The first five issues of Brubaker and Lark's Daredevil has sold out at Diamond while the finale that has everyone buzzing in Daredevil #87 is well on its way to making "The Devil In Cell Block D" completely sold out.
The reviews have been nothing but overwhelmingly positive, with many calling Daredevil the best comic book hitting stores each and every month.
Adam Chapman of Comixtreme.com says, "If you're not picking up Daredevil, that's a mistake that you MUST rectify. This book has been consistently great for years, thanks to Bendis and Maleev, and now, Brubaker and Lark are following up with a run which is really challenging Bendis…HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!"
IGN.com declares, "Daredevil is officially the best comic book on the market. I can't think of a single book that comes close… If you're waiting for the trades, you need to jump in on a monthly basis. Read this book at the expense of everything else - and tell your friends about it too."
Sabir Pirzada of PaperbackReader.com says, "Bendis' take on Daredevil was great, and Brubaker's looks to be just as good… This is one of the best titles released by Marvel right now."
Guest penciler David Aja fills in for Michael Lark for the stand-alone issue Daredevil #88, dealing with the secret life of Foggy Nelson. You may have thought you knew everything you need to know about Matt Murdock's best friend, but you thought wrong.
And this November, spinning out of "The Devil In Cell Block D" comes the Immortal Iron Fist, written by Ed Brubaker and Matt Fraction with art by David Aja. Get ready for non-stop Kung Fu as the former Hero for Hire gets his own ongoing series.
Month in and month out, Daredevil is at the top of everyone's list so do not miss Daredevil #88, a special stand-alone issue entitled "The Secret Life of Foggy Nelson." If you're not reading Daredevil, you're missing out on an instant classic.
