Daredevil: The seventh day, and In the centre of the viewfinder – Review
Daredevil, now biweekly publication, is facing a crisis of faith and will challenge his most mortal of enemies: Bullseye!
For fans of the adventures of Daredevil, July was a special month. Part just this month, in fact, the biweekly publication of the adventures of Cornet, with a history that shows in the life of Murdock, one of the essential characteristics of the characters: faith.
One of the strong points of Daredevil has always been his relationship with christianity, a difficult relationship that binds the two souls of the character, a lawyer and a vigilante, with the concept of punishment and forgiveness. As always, Matt Murdock has been trying to find a precarious balance between the violence often necessary in his role as a vigilante, and the observance of the precepts of catholic.
It is not the first time that Matt faces a similar stumbling block, a crisis of faith, following events that shook the soul, calling into question his faith. It is not a coincidence if Charles Soule decides to put Matt in a condition to relive moments difficult of his past (the reference is to the death of Karen Page in Guardian Devil), now that Blindspot is that he was left blind because of her.
The impairment of his client during the hunt killer inhuman Muse is seen by Matt as a sin, a sin for which serves as an atonement, that Daredevil chooses getting in the game with his most mortal of enemies: Bullseye. The seventh day is a run in which Matt performs an intimate process of critique and crisis, in the light of recent events and of his past, a sort of penance in which also comes to doubt his relationship with God, almost looking for death.
Of course, the refuge for the soul of Matt is faithful, the church, and the confessional. Father Jordan, the new pastor of the church of Matt, it seems to be the right confessor for the hardships of the hero, discover that, following a confrontation with Bullseye, as his soul has need of a support, in order to find himself.
Soule with The seventh day he decides to sink into the soul of Matt Murdock, showing how the torment of Matt is the fire that animates the Daredevil. We are toranti the vision of a Croissant, troubled, doubtful and fragile, in search of a balance that seems to elude them; in the first two parts of The seventh day, Matt seems to suffer because of his new size, as if to preserve his secret identity at the expense of the loss of the friendship with Foggy Nelson is only the tip of the iceberg of his discomfort.
Tap Goran Sudzuka make the pages of this story, and his style fits perfectly for the tone of the story. Whether it is the fight between Daredevil and Bullseye, or inner difficulty of Matt, Sudzula has the ability to enhance the moment, creating a crescendo of emotions that exalts the history of Soule, helped by the excellent colors of Matt Milla.
But in the series dedicated by Panini Comics, Daredevil you can find also other heroes of the house of Marvel.
Finally, the return of the Punisher, drawn by one of its greatest representatives in recent years, Steve Dillon. As always, even On the road, Frank Castle continues his mission against the underworld, and Becky Cloonan orchestra, a story in which Castle chases a dangerous cartel of drug dealers, while on his tracks as he puts the GODDESS, the intention is to dismantle the criminal organisation to stop the Punisher.
Of course, the idea of the Castle in order to stop this band of criminals is simple: exterminate them. In the stories of the Castle the plot is usually linear and with little depth, to master it, is its planning and execution, but Cloonan knows how to create some depth, taking great care with certain characters, giving life to a series of situations that appear to be dramatic that they are often ridiculed by the action of the Castle.
The presence of the Punisher in the comic Daredevil is a welcome return, and On the Road is a story that brings under the spotlight the Castle, while respecting in full the dictates typical of the character, not restricted to the massacre, typical of his passing, but also creating a plot from the action movie.
Personally, I can not fall in love with the run of Power Man and Iron Fist. Although the characters are definitely interesting and the dynamics of the history of Walker has of the strong points, the style of Greene and coloring Loughridge I can not convince me, thanks a tone of speech in the run that wants to present the whole approach is very lightweight, a choice that, by entering the adventures of Luke Cage and Danny Rand in a book whose heroes are anything but light-hearted and fun, breaks the rhythm, and that it's a bit out of place.
Interesting instead the revival of an old run of Akira Yoshida about the origins of the Hand, the dangerous sect of ninja assassins, who often has crossed the road of Daredevil, and we've also seen in the serial Netflix dedicated to the hero of Hell's Kitchen. The historical reconstruction of the origins of the sect is intriguing, already shows the ones that are the dictates of the future of the lethal organization, and helps us to better understand the guidelines of the sect membership of Elektra!
To better enjoy this new dimension in the editorial of Daredevil, from July, we will begin to follow the whole course of publication in the course of the month, so get ready for the first release of monthly the next. Appointment on newsstands on August 5 with Daredevil 15, for the time being!
