Daredevil: End of Days by Brian Michael Bendis, David Mack, Klaus Janson, Bill Sienkiewicz, and Alex Maleev
Daredevil meets a violent end at the hands of his arch-nemesis Bullseye. That’s not a spoiler alert either. This book is about the final days of our favourite super-hero.
The strange thing about this story is that the main character dies at the beginning of the book. He says one word just before dies, however. A word that completely unravels Bullseye.
Reporter Ben Urich starts an investigation to find out why Daredevil had been absent for years, why he returned to crime-fighting, and why he died. It’s personal because he has always respected and admired the super-hero. He even knew the man behind the mask.
He starts writing the story of Daredevil’s final days. He interviews many of Daredevil’s allies, enemies, and former lovers and pieces of the story start to come together.
I really enjoyed this book. It’s well-written and beautifully drawn by some of the best writers and artists to ever work on the ongoing series. It’s a dark tale that wraps up Daredevil’s story nicely
