DAREDEVIL: END OF DAYS #8 has come out this week and concluded the storyline...

Here was a small preview (which has spoilers, as does this thread on the board, so stop reading if you haven't read it yet)

So, what do you think of the Mapone reveal?

that it was predictably dumb and that the miniseries turned out not to be this big fat masterpiece everyone anticipated it to be. the regular series is better by far.

I am so glad I didn't spend any money on this series. Shadowland was a better DD story and I hated Shadowland. This entire mini read like it was fanfiction written by a 15 year old. A 15 year old who has read Miller's and Bendis' Daredevil stories way too many times and missed the point of what made those stories great every time.

Ha ha Murdock has lots of bastard kids, get it, cause he's a whore.
Thats so clever and funny and edgy. Ha ha.

Wow.

I just finished reading a review of #8 at http://www.craveonline.com/comics/reviews/513319-daredevil-end-of-days-8.

I feel completely justified for dropping this series after the first issue. I gave it a chance due to my respect for David Mack and Bill Sienkiewicz, but I may never by anything connected to Bendis ever again.

Awful, just awful, I bought most of the series and really regret it, always thought Bendis was terrible but hoped that the art etc could make this worth it, it was not.

i can't even begin to express how disappointed with this train wreck to you guys.

i suppose when the very first issue depicts my favorite hero being murdered with his own club by a villain he's bested dozens of times i knew it was going to be bad.

Mapone was such a lame reveal and Timmy.... seriously?

I guess this shows we really don't want Ben Urich monopolizing a story and failing to remind us why we like Matt so much. Sure maybe they don't want to do a Miller dark knight returns but this was so afraid of taking risks with supporting characters that references were vague and uninteresting anyways.

In short no one here is going to take this into continuity.

Maybe dumping on Bendis has become a hobby of mine, but I can't hold back. I just have to point out that Bendis' very first work at Marvel, the Wake Up arc (vol. 2 #16-19 I think) pushed Ben Urich to the foreground and shoved Daredevil into the background. I found it very tedious, and I thought it would have been more honest to market it has a Ben Urich mini-series.

So many years later, and Bendis hasn't progressed at all.

Big disappointment. My main concern is about the fact that the famous last word seemed to have had an impact on Bullseye, to the point that we were (I was, anyway) induced to believe that pronouncing that word was the reason for the killing. And the whole story was presented as if the reveal of the word's meaning would have made clear the sense of many things, e.g. Daredevil brutally killing the Kingpin, then disappearing only to come back and get killed... Needless to say, the final reveal didn't reveal anything and stretching this fake "mistery" along 8 issues was just pointless und not very honest

I pretty much agree with everybody else.Bullseye's death was silly.Bullseye being able to kill Daredevil easily without an explanation was silly too.The only real pay off for me was to see Daredevil and Black Widow together again.But there is just way too many unanswered questions.

I waited until I had all the comics to read the series. In the beginning I felt like I was reading something that was going to be earth shattering, but by the end it felt formulaic. It didn't need to span eight issues to get where it was going.

Timmy felt like a lame choice. If Ben Urich was perceptive enough to find out Matt Murdock was DD, I bet he could have figured out his own kid was up to something. I haven't read anything where Matt and Tim have any sort of a relationship, so there was a major disconnect for me.

Bullseye killing himself felt out of character and anticlimactic.

I would have felt more satisfied if Mapone were a sled...

The artwork in the series is top notch, but the story didn't live up to my expectations. In the end it was average.
