Daredevil is far from my favorite Marvel character but I had to have this book. The Kingpin is one of my favorite Spider Man villains and after reading Spider Man Noir. I knew this was going to be a must read. I am pleased to say that this is easily the best Daredevil story. I have read in a long time. Marvel Noir has been unbelievably great so far. I have yet to read one that I did not like and this is no exception. Kingpin is great in here and even Daredevil himself is fun to fallow. This is easily better then that lousy movie form 2003 and it should not be missed. Weather you love Daredevil or hate him, if you have enjoyed any other Marvel Noir story so far you will enjoy this too.

What if Daredevil was a character from a noir era? What if it was prohibition period US? An era where it would be unthinkable for a blind kid from Hells Kitchen to become a successful lawyer? What if instead he worked with Foggy as an investigator, having left his career in vauldeville? This is the story of those what-ifs. A story with a character who is both like and unlike the Daredevil that is usually in the stories but an interesting story all the same. It also features Kingpin and Bullseye (with an interesting twist)Readable, very dark and sometimes the flashback storytelling doesn't quite work for me, but I found it quite readable and fun.

I love the idea of Marvel's Noir spinoffs: The visuals are gritty and the dialogue snappy. However, in recreating Matt Murdock as a gumshoe who falls for one of his clients, the story ends up recycled pulp with a "twist" one can see coming easier than a freight train.

I love a good noir story, so I figured that I would really enjoy the Noir series of stories from Marvel. Some of them have been good, some of them have been blah, and most of them have been somewhere in-between. Daredevil Noir is one of those middling stories; it's an okay read, but there's nothing really spectacular about the story, either.Daredevil usually has a noirish feel to it anyway, so the character seems like the perfect fit for a Noir take. Daredevil, a former Vaudeville performer who now dons his costume to fight crime in Hell's Kitchen, is not a lawyer here - who's ever heard of a blind lawyer? (He asks himself that question.) Instead, he works for Foggy Nelson, who apparently isn't a lawyer either, but more a private investigator. I just didn't feel that drawn into the story. It was obvious from the beginning who was going to be the Bull's Eye Killer - after all, every great noir story needs a "dame" who has her own agenda, right? And with the character of Lady Bullseye being introduced in Brubaker's recent run of Daredevil, it didn't take much effort to put two and two together. The art, as typical with the Noir stories, is really dark. While this helps set the tone of the story, it also makes telling apart certain characters difficult at times. At one point, I mixed up Foggy Nelson and the Kingpin. I wish that the art was a bit clearer.Although it has nothing to do with the quality of the story, I'm disappointed in how Marvel has been printing these Noir collections. The trade paperback is smaller than typical trades, and the paper is an inferior quality to the standard glossy paper that is used for trade collections. They've been using this method of printing on other collections too (Lockjaw and the Pet Avengers comes to mind, all the while charging the normal trade paperback price!); if this trend continues or expands, I won't be buying nearly as many Marvel trades in the future.
