Welcome back everyone!
This week I actually have somethings to talk about! I have not caught up on Batman and Robin Eternal but that is because I am missing issue 4. However, the DC books that I am picking up this week I am caught up on. Deathstroke started off extremely strong and the art has been amazing. It is still going pretty strong and I am a huge fan of the character as a result of this book. Before Tony Daniel did his amazing work with this character I thought he was mediocre at best. Teen Titans is another book that started out strong. However, for me, it dipped a bit for a while. The last three or four issues were great. Red Robin (Tim Drake) is the leader we've always wanted for this team. He is Batman is the truest sense even if he is not actually Batman. It is worth noting that JLA #5 was a bit of a stand alone issue that really did not interest me at all and took me out of the whole Roa story.
Everything else on the list here has continued to be good and I can't wait to see where those stories go. The book I actually need to talk about is Daredevil.
The first issue of the new Daredevil is not a continuation of the previous series. The previous series still happened based on some context clues but this is not Mark Waid's Daredevil. This Daredevil is reminiscent of Shadowland Daredevil in a way but is more an extension of Frank Miller's Daredevil. He is gritty, he is aggressive, and he is intriguing. This version of Daredevil is a hero, but he is not compromising. The art is dark and grim whereas before it was light and fresh. Foggy has a brief appearance and the villain is introduced. A character by the name of Blindspot is Daredevil's new sidekick. It is not the same Blindspot that I had talked about in my previous mention of the book before I bought it. We are also introduced to the new Villain Tenfingers. It is also important to note that Daredevil is back in New York and his identity is once again secret.
