Issue Review

Daredevil #100 is kinda boring. It's just DD giving an interview to a magazine, which is an excuse for him to (a) ponder his origin tale, (b) pontificate on the nature of superheroes. Or something. 2/10

  very strange, not quite an origin re-tell, not quite a compelling new story. This was a disappointment.

  This is quite possibly the worst 100th issue ever.

  Meh. Not good, yet not horrible. It was a decent read, but I expected more from the hype the cover gave. The cover artist must have been a used car salesman prior to drawing comic covers.

  An intriguing story leafing to naught but disappointment. When will we learn?

  At least it didn't have extra story pages.

  The hallucination scene coupled with the locale reminded me of a Shade the Changing Man arc where the American Scream creates havoc in San Francisco. Then, on the last page of this we meet... Angar the Screamer!

  Wait... is Jann a boy... or a girl?

  3 stars. After Daredevil reminisces about his life and times. It makes you wonder how he's lasted 100 issues!!!

Cover Me - DD's trying to escape his rogue's gallery!!!

A Mime Is Terrible Thing To Waste - I always knew mimes were trouble...

Groupie - @MattzLadd: That's the real Jann Wenner the founder of Rolling Stone Magazine...and he's a boy!

Sliding Timescale - DD getting his powers changed from 1950 to 1958!

Ranking - They had to throw in DOOM to give DD some credit! Also, Tagak the Leopard Man wasn't a villain! Plus, what's the gold bird thing above Gladiator?!

Disconnected - Odd scene of DD making a phone call...

Let's Level With Daredevil - Nice history of DD and his creators!!!

'Nuff Said - "I wonder--will that one insane idea of creating a third identity for myself ever stop plaguing me?"-Matt "Mike" Murdock

  100 issues. Wow. We made it. We all should give ourselves no-prizes if we read every single one of these issues. Of course, there actually were a few decent issues; too bad they were few and far between. This issue simply reminds you of that.

One thing in this story's favor though: it's always fun to see a real-life character integrated into the Marvel Universe. As @Locust75 said, that's Jann Wenner, founder and editor of Rolling Stone magazine. I wouldn't have guessed he'd be used as a framing device for Daredevil to reminisce through his history.

And DD's recent additions to his rogues' gallery is getting weird. Dark Messiah a few issues ago, now Angar the Screamer? I guess it's an appropriate name; if Marvel editors made me fight Daredevil I'd be screaming too!

2 stars. The 100th issue wasn't terrible but it wasn't great. Just like Daredevil's entire series up to this point.

  That couldn't have been more true to what Daredevil has been like for almost all of his 100 issues. Except that the Widow wasn't there for him to be a jerk to. That was probably the only thing missing.

  So DD drops some acid and hangs out at the Rolling Stone magazine offices with Jann Wenner. Wonder if this gets mentioned in the new biography of Wenner, Sticky Fingers? They didn't say anything about it in the HBO special. Bummer.
