The series comes to an end. I’m going to keep this summary section pretty light on details because I believe it’s something worth reading.
Let’s just say that Matt Murdock, formerly the Man Without Fear learns how to confront his fears instead of being paralyzed by them. Matt also realizes that he hasn’t been his best self and that he neds to change for the better and acknowledge that though his life may be changing it isn’t over. Please go read this entire series. Jed MacKay crafted an absolute classic daredevil story.
There isn’t much to be said about this series that I haven’t already said. Jed MacKay absolutely nailed this transitional period of Matt Murdock’s life, and while I’m a little sad to see him go, I cant’ wait to see what Chip Zdarsky has in store for us. The art in this book is beautiful as well with the bearded Matt reminding me of the classic Born Again story line.
I do however have one negative that keeps this issue and this series as a whole from being a perfect piece of Daredevil canon. We never once saw Matt or any of his supporting cast reference his faith in any meaningful way. Daredevil is a Catholic character, it’s a huge part of who he is and it should remain so to not see it acknowledged when everything else is so perfect is a let down.
Overall Man Without Fear (2019) is an instant classic that every Daredevil fan needs to read and every comic fan should seriously consider.
I hope you’ve enjoyed this series along with me, see you all soon when we cover Daredevil #1.
