Wait, A Daredevil Comic was Fun and Peppy? AKA Daredevil #1 (2011)
We have a new Daredevil comic, and after the series just got darker and darker to the point where Matthew Murdock went insane and became a villain we now open up with Daredevil...as a happy-go-lucky guy? What? Ol' Matt Murdock also is being positive and happy too? Okay, I'll roll with it...
That's right, writer Mark Waid knows that after all the doom and gloom of the last decade (or decades) with Daredevil it is time to have Murdock just make the choice to try and be positive regardless of all the misery in his life that he has faced. This results in both a fun comic and an ever-so-slight dark undertone of how Matt is pretty much just living in denial, which he kind of admits in the back-up strip where he explains his new sugary view on life:
4.5 out of 5 stars.
