*No Major Spoilers*

**This volume has some PG-13 language**

There’s a bounty on Daredevil’s head and it’s big enough to bring out every contract killer in New York City. You’ll never believe who the client is – or who takes on the hit! Then, we find out how Matt Murdock put his double identity genie back in the bottle. What price did he have to pay? And who got left behind in the process?

Netflix introduced me to the superhero known as Daredevil. I find this character to be complex, and believable. He has a constant inner conflict with himself. He wants to believe he’s doing good, but at the same time, he’s putting the people he cares about in harm’s way.

I’ve enjoyed the Daredevil comics I’ve read so far. You can tell that the Netflix series took the source material to heart. I felt like I was back to watching the Netflix show again. The art symbolizes the differences between New York City (dark, muted tones) and San Fransico (bright, crisp colors).

I felt like this story was well written on its own. I didn’t feel the need to read the previous volumes in this story. Not a lot of graphic novel volumes are that way. It was concise and easy to follow and understand.

The main villain in this story was a surprise. I did not see it coming and I was blown away. ‘Wow! How is Daredevil going to get out of this one?’ I asked myself.

I would definitely recommend this graphic novel to lovers of Marvel Comics, Daredevil, or superheroes in general. I thoroughly enjoyed this graphic novel, and I will be reading more of Daredevil in the future!
