Daredevil No. 500

Published by Marvel Comics. Written by Ed Brubaker. Art by Michael Lark, Stefano Gaudiano, Klaus Janson and more.

The Deal: Writer Ed Brubaker and artist Michael Lark wrap up their run on Daredevil — and tie up a lot of long-running plot threads — in this historic, giant-sized anniversary edition of the book. Plus there's a ton of extra stories, pin-ups and other content in the comic to tickle your fancy.

The Verdict: Brubaker's version of Marvel's blind superhero sometimes came off as a little too much of a victim, but in this issue the character finally acts like a bad-ass. If you're a fan of Frank Miller's ninja-centric storylines, you'll really get a kick out of this. While we're on the subject of Miller, it really is amazing how his influence is still being felt on DD damned-near 20 years later. Wow, eh? Anyway, buy the book. It's good.
