Daredevil 21 cover

Daredevil #21 is a Marvel published comic, written by Chip Zdarsky and art by Marco Checchetto. The color artist is Mattia Iacono and the letterer is VC’s, Clayton Cowles. In the previous issue, Daredevil defeated an onslaught of villains unleashed on Hell’s Kitchen, assisted by Mayor Wilson Fisk and Typhoid Mary. On the last page, Daredevil handed himself in to the police for the murder of robber that he had fought back in the first issue of the series.

Within the actual issue, the plot actually overlaps with what came before, actually having a few of the last pages that are lifted from issue 20 used at the beginning. From there, Daredevil considers the decision he’s just made. While those around him scramble to protect his identity, Murdock has a fraught discussion with a fellow superhero. And at the end of the tale, he makes a second, potentially even worse decision.

The plot isn’t as action-packed and rapid as the last two editions of the series, but it’s very much needed considering what both the readers and Daredevil went through. The issue switches between Murdock and the district attorney, as both process what has just happened. The overlap between the issues was initially jarring, but it’s a powerful emotional moment that benefits the scene that directly follows it.

While the plot does not have action, that definitely doesn’t mean that this issue isn’t exciting. The showdown between Daredevil and the other superhero is seconds away from erupting into trading fists and is filled with tension. It is a sign of an old friendship being strained and signals the potential for it to get even worse. And the meeting between Daredevil and the DA is brilliantly written by Zdarsky. At the end of this issue is a reveal that I definitely didn’t see coming. This revelation is sure to become very important as Daredevil’s trial intensifies.

Daredevil #21 really shines a spotlight on who Matt Murdock is, but particularly who he is at the end of a long ordeal. The most impressive thing about this comic is that Zdarsky brilliantly conveys Murdock’s exhaustion. Daredevil throughout this issue moves and acts like a person running on empty. This results in him making decisions very quickly, between picking fights or turning himself in general. This felt warranted as this entire issue carries the feeling of the last 20 catching up, and it’s important to show the burnout the character struggles with.

At the same time, the principles that make the character strong, such as his faith combined with his stubbornness, are ever-present, stopping those around him from preventing his decision. His devotion to justice and his horror that he took a life has been a dark cloud that has hovered over him since the premier issue of Zdarsky’s run.

Checchetto’s art remains to be exquisite. As mentioned before, a lot of this issue is dialogue-heavy and action light, but the artist beautifully captures the tone of the comic. After his conversation with the guest hero, Daredevil visibly slumps, revealing how little energy he has left. A small feature of Checchetto’s illustrations that are always welcome when I read it is his facial detail. At the start of the comic, during the aftermath of the battle, the main combatants all have scratches and dirt on their faces. And the stubble on Daredevil’s chin is realized down to individual strands of hair, even in shadow. These may seem trivial, but it gives their faces substance. And the fantastically crafted facial expressions make the scenes where it is only two characters so much more powerful. 

The colors by Iacono continue to be jaw-dropping in their beauty. His tones and shades seamlessly blend with Checchetto’s shadows and pencils. The best example of this is that conversation with the superhero, who has made their way into Murdock’s apartment. Daredevil, mid-talk, changes out of his ruined civilian clothes that he’s been fighting in and into his full, scarlet regalia. The splash page that follows is stunning, showing the title character ready for a fight. The shading, the line-work, and the red that Iacono bestows upon it make it awesome to behold.

Iacono is adept at capturing and projecting light within the panels as well. There is a panel where the Man Without Fear swan dives from the top of a building. Below him is Hell’s Kitchen in all it’s glory, but what is most striking is the lights. They twinkle below him on a really beautiful page. It’s an example of how, even in a darkly comic, light can still be utilized brilliantly.

The dialogue is incredible in most of the scenes, and Cowles is influential in getting that across. The placing of the word balloons is superb, uncluttered and easy to read. The use of SFX is rare within this comic, but when they are they are small and understated. 

Daredevil #21 is a fantastic issue that beautifully bookends one arc before unleashing the readers on another. The writing by Zdarsky is among his best of his run, and his understanding of the character Matt Murdock is evident in every page. Both Checchetto and Iacono fill this issue with emotion and atmosphere. So many of the panels are achingly sad, but they are so well crafted that you can’t help but be in awe of it. Daredevil’s ordeal is far from over.

Daredevil #21 Review

Daredevill has turned himself in for the crime of murder… but what happens now?  Your Major Spoilers review of Daredevil #21 from Marvel Comics awaits!

Writer: Chip Zdarsky
Artist: Marco Checchetto
Colorist: Mattia Iacono
Letterer: VC’s Clayton Cowles
Editor: Devin Lewis
Publisher: Marvel Comics
Cover Price: $3.99
Release Date: July 22, 2020

Previously in Daredevil:  For weeks, Hell’s Kitchen has been a lawless neighborhood thanks to the Stromwyn siblings, but as the police are finally able to resume their patrols, they’re quick to find that they aren’t the only ones interested in keeping the Kitchen safe.
Meanwhile, as Matt Murdock continues to struggle with how best to appease his sense of justice after the events of the past several weeks, a familiar enemy takes root in Hell’s Kitchen…

TURNING HIMSELF IN

This issue opens in the ruins of Hell’s Kitchen, moments after Daredevil turned himself in to the police, with Mayor Fisk ready to throw the book at him.  DD will only hand himself over to his friend Cole, but at least The Owl is also going to jail for his crimes.  As Cole drives Daredevil away to jail, Foggy Nelson interrupts, insisting that he needs to speak to his client, giving DD the plan for what comes next.  Daredevil heads back home to pick up his costume, only to be confronted by Spider-Man, who warned him never to put on his mask again.  Daredevil bluffs his fellow hero and reports to the NYPD, where he is arrested and processed in his costume identity.  He is taken to the District Attorney, who is impressed by Foggy’s plan (based on the fact that costumed heroes can testify in their identities, Daredevil thus constitutes a legal identity and can be arrested and tried for murder without revealing his secret ID) but refuses to participate unless HE knows who is under the mask.  When Matt Murdock reveals himself, the DA is first shocked, then moved to violence, but agrees to the plan, instructing his officers to arrest Daredevil.

“MY CLIENT IS DAREDEVIL…”

I’m a fan of this story and Zdarsky’s work on Daredevil, and I really appreciate how strong the tension and drama is in this issue, but…  I feel like we’ve done the secret identity dance before.  Daredevil’s identity being in play was a big part of the Bendis AND the Waid runs on the character, so I’m hoping that this one focuses more on questions of justice than it does on mask tricks and clever moments.  I am quite happy with Chechetto’s art throughout the issue, though, especially in the emotional moments that are conveyed by the characters’ “acting.”  The Kingpin’s rage, DA Hochberg’s disbelief, even Spider-Man’s angry resolve are conveyed as much by the visuals as by dialogue or captions, making for an impressive experience, and the moment where a fully-outfitted Daredevil leaps from a rooftop, finally feeling like himself again, is truly excellent.  The cliffhanger ending is also very impressive, making the often-referenced idea that “nothing will ever be the same” feel like it might be true.

BOTTOM LINE: FEELS LIKE A REAL TURNING POINT

In short, even with parts of this story feeling familiar, Daredevil #21 feels like the big moment that it’s meant to be, with excellent art and character work combining to make for a nearly seamless, riveting narrative, earning a better-than-average 3.5 out of 5 stars overall.  If this creative team can actually follow through and make the changes stick in a way that feels natural and fresh, we’re going to see a whole new era for the Man Without Fear.

Daredevil is ready to take responsibility for his crimes, and it's tense, but I feel like parts of this have been done before. Even so, the art and story are quite good.

    AIPT - Christopher FraneyJul 22, 2020

    Seriously, this issue, like much of the series, gets top marks in regards to story, art, and character. This is the perfect jumping on point because what is going to come next may blow your mind. Other comics have the "aftermath" issue and this was one of them, but the drama doesn't stop. Great forward movement of plot points and strong growth for Matt Murdock. Read Full Review

    Word Of The Nerd - Brent JacksonJul 22, 2020

    I am, at times, and can also see why some fans may be, a bit frustrated with Daredevil #21. We are again left with more questions than answers, and it does seem that this storyline is dragging on a bit. I am interested, and every time I think I am over it Zdarsky pulls me back in, but at times I am kind of waiting for something new to happen, as well. Read Full Review

    Weird Science Marvel Comics - Jim WernerJul 22, 2020

    Daredevil is the best book on the shelves right now, and Chip Zdarsky kicks off his next huge storyline this month, and it's going to be a doozy. This issue is one of those transition issues between big arcs and is mostly setup for what's to come. It's still a must-read for Daredevil fans, but if you aren't reading this book, I suggest you get your head checked and start from the beginning of the run. It's well worth the time and effort.
