This week, I’m getting myself psyched for DD’s appearance in “She-Hulk” by taking a look at “Daredevil: Season One”
The “Season One” graphic novels, which came out in 2012, were Marvel’s way to modernize their most beloved characters, similar to what DC did with their “Earth One” series so if I’m not mistaken, this was the very first one that put out.
At first, Antony Johnston and Wellington Alves, in my opinion, do a remarkable job of updating the Stan Lee/Bill Everett/Joe Orlando/Wally Wood days that flow with ease, I also enjoy seeing Daredevil’s battles with Electro, The Matador (I still think he should have been a deadly villain in DD’s rogue, even if he is all style but no substance), Mister Fear and The Eel and The Owl because those confrontations feel very fresh while the story itself doesn’t go off the rails but instead Johnston does his best to take everything Stan Lee made special about the original stories and puts his own spin on it. Yes, I feel like the rundown of DD’s villains felt rushed but the graphic novel does an excellent job of fleshing out Matt Murdock’s time as a lawyer and giving depth to his supporting characters such as Franklin “Foggy” Nelson and Karen Page.
This may not have been a hit amongst the most veteran DD fans
but it is a good read that shows Daredevil in a new light but new fans will relish it if they want to get invited in the adventures of the character, but at least it’s not as over the top as the 2003 Ben Affleck movie so that’s something to be thankful for. With enough time, Antony Johnston and Wellington Alves could have fleshed out the Season One era of DD but what they put on display feels satisfying for the time being, but if it’s good or bad is public opinion.
Well, that’s it for me, Next week I’ll probably take a look at a Titania story (The story I’ll look at my surprise you) Thanks for sticking around, and I will see you all next time.
