The Collection Without Fear - Part 3: Mark Waid's Daredevil Volume 2
May 23, 2020, 1:17 am

Welcome back! I hope your week was good. In this new part to the series, I would like to try something new. So let’s see if anything sticks. I’m going to divide up Mark Waid’s run on Daredevil into their respective stories and if they don’t have names, I will name them myself. So let’s begin…

Snow Angels:
Okay so technically the first story to this volume has a title, but it isn’t good. So I’m going to name this ‘Snow Angels’. I’ll be honest, this is by far my favourite story of the whole run. This single issue story is about Murdock volunteering to take a group of blind students on a field trip, but ties to the Omega Drive puts all of them in danger. The growing suspense throughout the story feel natural and the returning Paolo Rivera perfectly captures the joy and fearful tones beautifully woven together. Snow Angels is a beautiful contained story that I feel I might come back to quite a lot.

The Devil in the Details:
This is the first of many (some questionable) crossovers. I’m not really sure what to think about this story, it kind of just happens. The story is centred around the Black Cat being arrested, Spider-Man and Daredevil team-up to prove her innocence. And honestly that’s just it. The link to the overarching story feels somewhat forced and meaningless. Of course I did enjoy this story but I feel it isn’t the strongest.

To See Her Once Again:
Wrapping up this Volume is this stellar story about… Mole Man. Wait, no! Come back! I promise you it’s amazing!! Okay jokes aside, this story really brings Murdock back to ground level, having to question his own biases and beliefs. The serious and deep tones to this story feels amazing and very welcomed. This would be the last issue that Paolo Rivera would do the pencils for, I playing into the fact that Mole Man and Daredevil don’t need bright lights to see, and the unique situation DD’s is really played to its full potential. I think, like Snow Angels, that this story is easily one of the best in the series.

The Omega Effect: Prelude
Whoops did I say that the last story was the end? Nope! There is one last story to this volume. I think the first half to the story is neat, Daredevil trapped in a box with a pyrokinetic, the tension is incredible and put me on edge. The second half is fine, just a prelude into the next story in the series.

If you were in a position to choose one singular book from a store, I believe this is a somewhat strong contender for your purchase.

Next Time! We continue into Volume 3 and the introduction of Chris Samnee to the series. See you then!
