This series seems to have flown under the radar. Even among those who read it, there was not nearly enough praise. The last installment in this arc was one of the most well told stories I have ever had the pleasure of reading. Having just met Lee Weeks, one of the nicest and most down-to-earth guys in comics, I was ready for an epic finale. So, is it good?
Daredevil: Dark Nights #3 (Marvel Comics)
Everything’s gone to hell. An epic blizzard paralyzes the city. A little girl is dying and it is up to an ailing Daredevil to bring her the heart transplant that she so desperately needs. Unfortunately, our hero had the heart stolen from him by an ex-junkie.
As always, Lee Weeks crafts a gripping and smoothly flowing story. He seamlessly switches from one side of the dilemma to the next giving the reader an incredible amount of insight and overall view of the whole story.
One of the particularly well-composed scenes was the dream sequence. The scene was gritty, creepy, powerful and adds a whole other dimension to the story. It is quite powerful when heroes face their demons and this scene is one of the book’s best.
The rest of the book unfolds almost exactly as predicted with a few small twists. I found the ending to be adequate — borderline good — but not as good as the rest of the series.
- Awesome art and storytelling
- Great dream sequence
- Meh ending
As always the art is phenomenal. All of the snow scenes could not have been more lifelike and gripping. All of the emotions were so real, the action so believable. You could almost feel Daredevil’s agony as he trudged through the snow. Overall terrific art.
Is it Good?
As an ending? Meh. As in issue yeah, it’s pretty great. The arc itself is one of the best I’ve read in a long time.
