“The Red Fist Part 1”
Writer: Chip Zdarsky
Artist: Marco Checchetto
Cover Art: Marco Checchetto & Matthew Wilson
Chip Zdarsky’s run on Daredevil has been a must read every month.
This month’s 25th issue of Daredevil is everything you could possibly want in a Marvel comic. The characterization is great. You have characters doing things that fit with their character and making choices that make sense and are yet shocking. The art is great. The action is great.
It has been one of the best comics in Marvel.
No spoilers here, but the focus this month on Elektra gives us some fantastic insights into the character of Elektra Natchios. We get just a flavor of Daredevil in prison. There is going to be so much more coming from that.
The issue dives into the relationship between Matt Murdock and Elektra. How they are the same. How they are different. What they think of each other.
And all of this with Hell’s Kitchen as the backdrop.
It is story telling at its finest and I cannot wait to see where it goes from here.
