A love letter to Mark Waid’s run on Daredevil

daredevil7

This is a great post from The Nerdist bidding a fond farewell to Mark Waid’s run on Marvel Comics’ Daredevil. Usually I’m not a fanboy to certain writers. I’m more inclined to avoid a comic if it’s done by a certain writer, for example anything written by Frank Miller after The Dark Knight Returns. However Mark Waid’s run on Daredevil for the past four years has not only made Daredevil my favorite Marvel comic but one of my favorite comics of all time.

As the post from the Nerdist points out Mark Waid took Daredevil out of his normally gritty and dark situations and turned him into more of a swashbuckler fitting of the Daredevil name. He was even able to take a bad Marvel crossover in Original Sin and make a really great Daredevil story out of it in one of my favorite single issues of all time.

So thank you Mark Waid for making one of the best comic series of all time in my opinion and good luck to the new creative team. Who knows, maybe the next writer can knock it out of the park as well and make me a fan of one more writer.
