DAREDEVIL #70-80

Look at this beautiful panel.  Gene Colan is wizard.

Sadly, Gerry Conway’s writing…Isn’t.  It isn’t terrible, but it’s not great.  There’s no real sense of Daredevil as a character.  Half the time he’s a street fighting badass with a dark rogues gallery that has its roots in the underground and organized crime.  And he’s a hard-boiled lawyer as well.  But the rest of the time he’s pining away like a teenager:

Matt’s always been a romantic, but here he’s basically Peter Parker as an adult.  And by this time, even Peter Parker had grown up and was in a long-term relationship with Gwen Stacy.

There’s so many cool elements here, but it just isn’t gelling.  And there’s still a long way to go with Conway’s run.
