Top Ten Daredevil Covers: Vol. 3 (2011-2014)
With the recent reboot of Daredevil and his subsequent move to San Francisco I thought it would be a good time to look back at Volume 3 and highlight some of the covers from this run. After the doom and gloom of Bendis, Brubaker, and Diggle’s lengthy tenure’s it was time to take DD back to his swashbuckling roots. Mark Waid was just the man for the job along with artist Paolo Rivera to launch and then eventually Chris Samnee they succeeded in turning the character around and giving the book a artistic facelift on all fronts. Proving that a Daredevil book could look and feel bright but still have a dark under current. In the process they created an array of covers in this volume’s short 36 issues that stand out and confidently rank with any of the classics that came before it.
