I have been somewhat critical of writer Charles Soule's work so far on this current run of Daredevil. His work has been somewhat inconsistent and at times lacking soul – please pardon the pun. There have been issues that told decent stories, but most of them lacked the emotional hook that tends to keep readers wanting more. Soule's "Dark Art" story arc is so much better than all 9 issues before it. This is not the Daredevil I idolized while I was growing up in the 80's. It is so much Darker and deals with evil realities most of us would rather ignore than face head on. Ron Garney's rough-edged art fits the story perfectly, drawing us into a story that is both compelling and engaging.

There is something missing in Charles Soule's Daredevil. I can't quite put my finger on it, but something isn't quite the way it should be. The stories have been decent, not fantastic, but not bad either, just lacking in some way. The art has been good, not suitable for all titles, but appropriate to this title. Garney's work has a sort of film noir look to it – rough, dark, gritty, and lacking in color. I think something the title lacks is a hook, we need something to grab ahold of us and make us want to know more. As readers we have to care what happens to the characters in the story. In order to care, we must identify with the people in the story in some way, which in turn allows us to feel as though we are a part of the story, and have a vested interest in the outcome of events the characters struggle through. For me, this is an area where Charles Soule fails as the writer of this title.

Writer Charles Soule's Daredevil and Punisher crossover Seventh Circle, comes to a conclusion with the fourth installment.
Comic books historically come out on a monthly basis. Every 4 to 5 weeks an issue for a certain series is published and stacked on the racks of your local shop. Some of course are published bi-weekly and others may take months be released if they’re an indie comic without a scheduled deadline. Now with the advent of digital media, people are able to enjoy the comfort of purchasing and reading their comic books without leaving their home. Marvel has taken advantage of this by creating comics exclusively for the computer screen called, Marvel Infinite Comics. Some of the more successful ones eventually get released in print form and one of which was a crossover between two of the companies premiere street level heroes, Daredevil and the Punisher.

Marvel continues to capitalize off of the success of the successful debut of the Punisher in Netflix's Daredevil season 2 with a crossover mini-series. The two New York based characters have had a rivalry for decades and has been one of the more alluring ones in comics. The two have always been more street level heroes, dealing with inner-city and domestic problems, not involving themselves in the big events. While that may turn off some readers, what's drawing about their conflict is their philosophical differences that happened to be highlighted in the Netflix series. Criminals commit crimes, Daredevil hits them and they get back up, the Punisher hits them and they stay down. It's a line that all superheroes have to face at some point and this relationship has exploited that to its fullest.
