Format: Hardcover
Presented in this hardcover volume is a year's worth of Daredevil writings by writer Brian Michael Bendis. He's taken the character in a slightly different direction that has aggitated some fans as the lead character has been seen to have gotten 'too dark, and 'too flawed'. In these issues, there can be seen a very, dark, mob oriented storyline following a coup to sieze control of New York's underworld and the repercussions of this action. Alongside this plot is another one dealing with how Matt Murdock (Daredevil's alter-ego) deals with being outed to the media.
The artwork by Alex Maleev is very dark, and angular. Reflecting the style of Bendis' writing. It's not everyone's cup of tea, and is radically different to any previous art in Daredevil.
In addition; Episodically, Bendis' writing can seem disjointed and occasionally infuriating as the pace is very slow and progressive, but collected in this volume it is given a much greater flow and reads very nicely. In addition, the production of the book is of a very high standard and the art seems all the more impressive on the over-sized pages.
My only real complaint about it is that not all the story lines are resolved and you will no doubt have to buy another volume to get a proper sense of closure. But all in all, an excellent read that'll look great on your bookshelf.

Format: Hardcover
In my opinion this has to be one of the greatest runs of any comic book and I have read quite a few. Incredibly dark and moody artwork by Alex Maleev with a fantastic story by Bendis to match. Daredevil looks like a crazed devil in most of the pages "do not mess with the Devil"! like scenes from a horror film. Bendis has written a perfectly paced story that you do not want to end I wish the book was 500 pages long, well I'll just have to go get volume 3.

Daredevil Does Film Noir Better Than Movie Can 19 Feb. 2003
By M. Illarmo - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Ever since the Kevin smith relaunch, Daredevil has been amazing. This Volume contains the both the "Underboss" and the "Out" story lines, issues 26-37. Bendis is amazing at crime stories and he took Daredevil and gave the comic a movie feel more satisfying than the one out in theaters now. His story telling of the gritty crime underground, combined with Maleev's unique style, give the book a sense of feel and texture unique in comics.
The first storyline involves the mystery behind the disappearance of the Kingpin, Wilson Fisk, who controls all crime in New York. A man named Silke, the son of Kingpin's former partner, is given a second chance and relocates to New York. He gathers a group of Kingpin lieutenants and attempts to overthrow the Kingpin. This begins a series of events that include it being open season on Matt Murdock and a Fisk family reunion.
The second story, named Out, begins with the headline of the Daily Globe (the NY Post in the Marvel world) on April 17, 2002 declaring that Matt Murdock is Daredevil. A media circs begins as old enemies show up to get revenge on Daredevil and Foggy (Matt's legal partnr and best friend), in a well written speech, implores Matt to retire.
The Bendis/Maleev collaboration is one of the best in comics. They will soon be mentioned in the same breath as other great tandems like Busiek /Anderson/Ross or Ennis/Dillon.

Daredevil Vol. 2 Hardcover Review 2 Aug. 2004
By N. Beitler - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This edition collects Dardevil 26-37, and showcases the beginning run on the series by Brian Michael Bendis (my favorite Comic Book writer) and new series artist Alex Maleev. The storyline is very good (as is just about anything Mr. Bendis writes), and continues the Kingpin's run of rotten luck - something usually reserved for the title character. There is not much "superheroing" in this book, but instead the shift is more to a crime noir type of story - something that is well suited to the character and something Bendis enjoys and excels at writing. Daredevil's secret identity is "outed" and this causes him all sorts of problems. When you get to the end, you are definitely left wanting more. So, if you get this book, you will definitely want to also get Vol. 3 to complete the storyline (at least, complete most of the plot lines).

The artwork in this collection is not my favorite, but it has a distinct look to it that is different from just about anything alse you'll see. The artwork is not nearly as clean and clear as much of what you may see in other books, but it does "fit" the tone of the book, and Bendis seems to love Mr. Maleev's work, so chances are that he'll be on this series as long as Bendis is. Overall, I liked this Vol. equally as well as Vol. 1., but people looking for a traditional "battle of the spandex-clad heroes and villains" will probably not like it as much as I. However, if you're looking for a more realistic, "talking heads" type of storyline, you'll definitely enjoy this book.

Best Comic Ever 11 Jan. 2007
By Adam Shelp - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Brian Michael Bendis' run on Daredevil (Vol 2. Issues 26-81) is by far one of the greatest runs ever produced. In this hardcover are his first two story arcs Underboss and Out, Out being the best of the entire run. Well worth buying used considering it is out of print.

Another Great Daredevil Tale 11 Aug. 2003
By K.H. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This installment of the Daredevil comic series by Brian Bendic and Alex Maleev is another great story in a long line of Daredevil sagas. This story involves the Daredevil's indenity being exposed for al to see. The press hounds Matt for the truth and they report the 'Kingpin is Dead.'
The Kingpin's appearant demise (and apearant is the operative word) was maters-minded by an up-and-coming punk named Mr. Silke. He is a visitor to Hell's Kitchen from Chicago and the opening scene, taken from Shakespear's 'Julius Ceaser' is interesting.
I don't want to review the story as to give anything a way. The Kingpin subplot is actually more inteersting than the Daredevil/Matt Murdock exposed story. But the Kingpin story works because of the Matt Murdock exposed story. It is a nice compliment.
As is a tradition in the Marvel Universe, there are cameo appearances from other Marvel Universe characters; Spiderman, Electra, and the Black Widow all appear, but they hinder this story and bog it down. The appearance of the Kingpin's wife Vanessa, however, gives this story an interesting subplot and lift. She is a character rarely used and Bendis does use her hear brilliantly.
The artwork is of a film noir style and works very well. The story does slow down in some areas and the cameos didn't help; but, overall - this is another great Daredevil adventure.

Perfect companion piece for fans of the movie! 17 Feb. 2003
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
At a cover price of$$$), the format and the artistic quality that will entertain you upon each reading of this edition makes the Daredevil Volume 2 hardcover one of the best buys of the year. Better yet, offer this edition as a present to a comic book collector, a youngster or somebody who enjoyed the movie. The joy you will give is going to be worth every penny.
