    This installment is responsible for continuing to nourish the atmosphere of mystery and highlights the relationship between Matt and Elektra, that eternal love that once again has an obstacle.

    Saladin Ahmed continues to spin a pretty good story and the dialogue between Matt and Foggy when they have the meeting toward the end of the book is fantastic. It’s helped by some great artwork specifically regarding Foggy’s micro-expressions once he has heard Matt’s story and is trying to process everything. The book ends on a fantastic cliffhanger in which Father Math will likely have a bit of explaining to do to one of the kids he looks after.

    I look forward to seeing what the next issue has in store for us.

    Daredevil is always a hell of a read. I’m glad month after month to see this series keep just getting better.

    Ahmed delivers a great story in this issue. Not only does it continue a wonderful mystery with Matt and Elektra dealing with the Kingpin’s return to Hell’s Kitchen, but also the drama with Matt visiting his oldest friend is perfectly executed. I continue to love the surprises in this series and the final moments of this issue bring a wonderful new problem for Matt to face.

    Cabal delivers great visuals throughout the issue. The art is visually engaging especially with the emotional moments for the character.

    Excellent fight choreography carries the issue as Bullseye squares up to the Daredevils. Punishment awaits as fists, feet, and faces all meet. The Sins take a breather in this issue as we get a reunion that long-time fans will enjoy. The issue is enjoyable overall, but it does feel a bit like a filler issue with how long this story arc has been. It is still worth picking up, but it does keep the wait lingering as answers and confrontations await.

    Comic Book Revolution

    Daredevil #9 does a lot to push Matt Murdock out of his bubble and back into fully stepping back into the importance of his mission as the Man Without Fear. The confrontation with Bullseye and what he learns about Wilson Fisk show that Matt can’t be just a half in on being back to his superhero life. How Elektra, Foggy, and Cole factor into this make Saladin Ahmed’s run stronger as more of the beloved Daredevil cast is being brought in. It all leads to looking forward to what will happen next as Marvel’s New York City as a whole goes through a big change.

    In many ways, Daredevil still feels trapped in its old status quo nine issues into this new run. Matt & Elektra continue their on-again-off-again saga, Bullseye is still a loudmouthed prick, Matt’s guilt-ridden actions have only alienated him from Foggy and the Kingpin is back to trying to run Hell’s Kitchen. The comic book is all too aware that last bit is outdated, almost deliberately so. But unless it ties back into the “Seven Deadly Sins” arc, it feels more like the series is wheel-spinning.

    Weird Science Marvel Comics

    Daredevil #9 is a frustrating, unsatisfying issue. The Seven Deadly Sins storyline is on the back burner. Ahmed takes a few shortcuts to re-establish Matt’s relationship with Foggy and make Kingpin a viable presence despite his activity with the X-Men. The whole series appears to be going nowhere fast when you consider all plots are on hold until the tie-ins with Blood Hunt finish, so the planning for this title is a mess.
