    Some very important things happen this issue, and with any other artist, they would almost be cringe-inducing, but with Hawthorne, it never crosses the line and, I would argue, is even MORE impactful.

    Daredevil #32 is a great issue that advances the main players’ adventures while amping the drama and action up. That last page twist will both excite and scare you with it’s potential. If these last two parts have been an indicator, then this arc is going to explode!

    Bullseye’s return is every bit as bloody as readers likely anticipated, but its presentation is a largely bloodless affair. In what’s perhaps the least believable portion of this comic, New York City finds itself under lockdown as Bullseye engages in randomized murder; I call this unbelievable because between pandemics and mass shootings, it’s difficult to believe that all of New York City would lockdown for a single gunman, no matter how deadly. Setting that aside, the updated setting and status quo makes everything very tense and allows for some effective moments of dialogue and characterization in this pressure cooker. The same applies to Matthew’s ongoing problems in prison as the story introduces not one, but two big mysteries at its end. What began as the terrifying return of Daredevil’s most deadly foe is quickly becoming something much more twisty and it’s equal parts excitement and anxiety imagining what is coming next in Daredevil.

About the Author: Chip Zdarsky

In the ever-evolving landscape of comic books, Chip Zdarsky emerges as a figure of immense creativity and versatility. Known for infusing his narratives with both humor and emotional depth, Zdarsky has charted a course through the comic book universe that is as diverse as it is compelling. From the groundbreaking humor of “Sex Criminals” to the gritty streets of Marvel’s “Daredevil,” his journey is a testament to a talent that refuses to be pigeonholed.

The man behind the pseudonym, Steve Murray, became a household name with “Sex Criminals,” co-created with Matt Fraction. This series broke new ground with its audacious blend of comedy, romance, and the supernatural. It was here that Zdarsky’s knack for balancing wit with genuine storytelling first shone, earning the series critical acclaim and a dedicated following.

Zdarsky’s portfolio, however, spans a broad spectrum. His unique voice has breathed new life into “Howard the Duck,” where he explored themes of identity and belonging, and his run on Marvel’s “Daredevil” has been celebrated for its moral complexity and rich character development. But Zdarsky’s talents are not limited to writing. As an artist, he has lent his distinct visual style to numerous projects, enhancing his narratives with expressive artistry and dynamic visuals.

In recent years, Zdarsky has ventured into the shadowy alleys of Gotham City, bringing his distinctive flair to the world of Batman. His work on Batman titles has quickly garnered attention for its fresh take on the Dark Knight, blending the character’s traditional brooding intensity with new layers of psychological depth. Through stories that delve into Batman’s complex psyche and the morally ambiguous landscape of Gotham, Zdarsky adds to the rich tapestry of Batman lore, proving yet again his ability to navigate and innovate within established universes.

Beyond his impressive body of work, Zdarsky’s engagement with the comic book community — through social media, conventions, and insightful industry commentary — has made him a beloved figure among fans and fellow creators. His contributions have not only earned him awards and nominations but have also solidified his role as a pivotal voice in contemporary comics.

As Chip Zdarsky continues to explore the darker corners of Gotham City, his journey exemplifies the power of storytelling in comic books — where humor meets heroism, and the human condition is explored in the flicker of a bat signal against the night sky. For those drawn to the art of comics, Zdarsky’s work offers a masterclass in creativity, inviting readers into worlds both wildly imaginative and intensely real.
