I have really enjoyed a number of comic books by Brian Michael Bendis (House of M, Ultimate Spider-man), but this is probably the best. I'm not a particular fan of Daredevil as a character, but this book goes way beyond fighting bad guys in red tights.
There are 4 stories in this edition. The first is quite distinct from the others, as it is from the perspective of journalist Ben Urich, and has a very different art style from the rest of the book. It's a good story, although a bit slow, but with wonderful painted art.
The rest of the stories, especially the second and third (the ones drawn by Alex Maleev), are really more about superhero failure and neuroses than superhero heroics. Matt Murdock is suffering, and while he saves some people and stops some crime when he dresses up as Daredevil, it really comes across that Daredevil is an obsession and he'd really be better off if he gave his hobby up. His trials start to affect his judgment and moral compass, and he makes some key mistakes. It's good to see a superhero comic really explore the notion that being a superhero is a bad idea.
As well, the book gives a lot of room to other characters, like the ones in the Kingpin's crime family. Some might complain that the book is 'talky' with a lot of dialogue and little action, but I think it's great.
Many people have gushed about Alex Maleev's art. I wasn't as crazy about it as I expected when I first got to his chapters of the book, but it grew on me over time and by finishing it I saw the appeal. It's not always pretty, and certainly is not the usual style for many superhero comics, but it suits the stories, and the lighting and facial expressions, and the pacing of the panels, is superb.
Not that this book is short of praise, but in case you are at all on the fence, if you have any interest in Daredevil OR superheroes generally OR noir stories, this is one to get.
