dmstarz's Daredevil #71 - Decalogue, Part 1 review

dmstarz's favourite marvel comic cover no238

A cracking idea from Bendis and Maleev - a take on not only the Ten Commandments, commenting of course on Murdock's tenuous Catholic faith, but also namechecking Kieslowski's masterful 1988 TV work 'The Decalogue'. Stylistically, all five covers of the series (which should have been ten, surely, to make sense, but never mind) detoured from the usual DD artwork and were all quite similar. But I think the first one's the best because, one, purely because it is first, two, the Daredevil blood red is in full effect and, three, the title of the story reflects well Murdock edging into megalomania in the way he exerts control over Hell's Kitchen.

I have ranked this cover no 238 as part of a long term project I am producing on my own blog 'marvel-ous' on blogspot.com re: my favourite marvel comic book covers. Please visit http://dmstarz.blogspot.com and check out the other covers that have made my top 250.
