Daredevil

I need more people on my friends list who read comic books. Does anyone secretly read them or want to start?

I just got into Daredevil (volume 2), and I can't think of any comic book I've ever liked better.

I wasn't interested in Daredevil originally because a) I prefer team books to solo series, and b) I had heard that the movie wasn't great, which is admittedly a stupid reason, but I was more interested in other books so yeah. Then I saw him around the pages of other books, and I don't know, something just piqued my interest.

I figured that the beginning of a new volume was as good a place to start as any, so that's where I began. I was pretty much hooked from the start, and aside from the fact that I don't like fridging as a plot point, it only got better. A lot of stories have "morally grey" heroes where "morally grey" is code for "wrong", but Matt's choices really were morally grey, and it was easy to see how he was wrong but right at the same time. And when Luke yells as him for being a liar, well Luke's right, but Matt's right, too.

I also really liked the supporting characters, especially Black Widow, which is funny because I didn't expect to like her, because I read comics out of order and I'm prejudiced against anyone who was pro-registration during Civil War. But I really liked her here, and I can't really imagine how the same person who was so close to Matt when his life was ruined because his identity got out could then go and be pro-reg. I've heard you're supposed to take character's actions during Civil War with a grain of salt because everyone was completely OOC, so I guess I should just pretend it never happened?

Anyway, I haven't quite caught up, I'm only in the low 90s, so don't spoil me, but if anyone happens to read DD please spam me with thoughts and discussions!

Icon is Emma just because it's Marvel, but maybe I'll make a Black Widow (or Daredevil) icon.
