    Soule's highs are pretty high, but it's lows are LOW. And it's, as you might guess from my first sentence, inconsistent. I'd probably agree mr. kenway on a solid B. It's not as good as Waid's good stuff, but it's still really solid on the whole. My favorite couple arcs from Soule I'd put up against just about anything DD in the last 20 years, but he doesn't hold that level the whole run.
    I would agree that Waid's first run is very good and with the exception of the Original Sin crossover (excellent 2-parter), the second run is pretty mediocre and weak at times, in particular the ending. I'm a fan of Soule's run, it's a slow burn at the beginning and then explodes. The last arc is a disappointment and may bring the whole run down for many. The ending really does matter.

    Soule's run is good but I have to reread it to get a better appraisal. He had a hard task following Waid's run. I think his run was stronger when it was about Blindspot than Matt. But Zdarsky is in the same boat with Cole North. It's a common occurrence for long running series. Our minds gravitate towards the new over the familiar.

    Ironically if he was writing Iron Fist instead, he'd be the A-list of Iron Fist runs, even surpassing Immortal. But for DD he's a respectable B-list.

    Wasn't intrigued by Waid's run. I think I left it half through(Perhaps the Original Sin). I thought Soule's run has better highs than Waid. Especially his story with the Purple Children which was fantastic. I think it got pale with Mayor Murdock. I think it was the Hand story where they try to kill Fisk. Death of Daredevil was indolent and ineffectual towards any character development.
    I think its the same thing happening with Zdarsky's run. Especially with the Devil's Reign

    Ok this looks good. Didn't know it had the same artist as the current run with DD. I guess I have some money for this to buy given there are no xbooks to read this week.

    Well actually, this is drawn by Rafael De Latorre, and I can't remember seeing his name on the DD book. He's more than welcome to fill in for Marco in the future though.

    Does anyone know if Daredevil ever team-up with Moon Knight or not? I find the dynamic duo is quite underrated since both have in common for something including being a vigilante.

    I know the Ultimate versions did when they tried to take down Wilson Fisk.
    Keep in mind that you have about as much chance of changing my mind as I do of changing yours.

    They teamed up back in the day in Moon Knight (1980) #13:



    I have that comic. I remember picking it up as a kid due to the Daredevil appearance.

    Moon Knight also had a 3-issue mini-series in the Daredevil/Shadowland event: Shadowland: Moon Knight #1-3. DD and MK don't actually team-up here but are rather enemies as DD is head of The Hand and "controlled" by the beast.



    All of the four issues I've detailed above are included in the Shadowland: Moon Knight TPB/HC.

    Good one! I forgot about that one. I have that issue also in my Spider-Man longbox.

    Awesome! Truly an unsung classic (IMHO):

    Woman Without Fear was actually pretty good, and it was beautiful to look at!

    Good to know! The preview was very promising.

    Yeah, there are a couple of Flashbacks, so I don't know if it's much rehashing of previous stories, since my knowledge of Elektra is pretty limited.

    The art is really good and the story seems to have potential but it was kinda cliche I guess.
