Daredevil: End of Days #6 - Part Six

5

In the near future, things are looking bad for the Marvel Universe. They just might be getting a whole lot worse for Ben Urich and his investigation.

The Good

Ben Urich has been on a crusade throughout this series. Trying to uncover the truth behind the final word Daredevil uttered before he died has lead him from one dirty corner of the city to another. His investigation has brought him to some of Marvel's deadliest characters yet this hasn't been enough to stop him. The way last issue ended, it looked like he might have a good reason to stop, unless someone can save him. Now Ben has an even bigger mystery to try to solve.

Brian Bendis and David Mack have been consistently kicking ass in this story. I've said it before but there's nothing like a great mystery. We don't get many in comics these days because everything is spoiled before issues even go on sale. It's a joy to be able to read a story full of questions and suspense and have no idea where the story is going to go or how it all ends.

And just when you think you know how the issue is going, a huge wrench is thrown into the mix. My goodness!

Normally I'm not a fan of multiple artists on single issues. It works nicely here. The combination of the two styles plays together perfectly in the current time and flashbacks.

The Bad

It's not often I read a series that I enjoy this much.

The Verdict

Bendis and Mack continue to take us on this crazy and spectacular ride. There's nothing better than an unknown mystery and the sense that anything can go. Because this takes place in the near future, anything can and is happening. This is a no holds barred story. I'm loving every minute of it. Bendis and Mack keep delivering the shocks. The art team of Klaus Janson, Bill Sienkiewicz and Mack makes a great story even more glorious. This is a Daredevil story that won't be forgotten. Bring on the next issue!
