Reviews: Daredevil, Doctor Strange, Moon Knight, The Punisher & Secret Empire

Daredevil #19, Doctor Strange #19, Moon Knight #13, The Punisher #11 & Secret Empire #0

My thoughts on some of this weeks digital comics from Marvel Comics

 

 
We start to get a handle on how Daredevil made the world “forget” his secret identity. The Purple Man made an interesting character and it was interesting to see all the different iterations of Daredevil we’ve had over the years. The (Season One) Netflix, the Yellow, the armoured, the black and the classic. He seems to have Purple Man all worked out, but I did like the bar setting and how they all see him. Killgrave’s motivation was interesting as he seems to be getting ‘board’ of his power and is looking for new and unique ways of using it. It was good to flip to the confession side of it all, and that keeps that potential issue on the table.
By the end, it looks like we can see how this pans out….
 

 
We get some nice flashbacks here, looking at the rocky beginnings to the relationship between Wong and Strange. The food aspect is a running theme through the issue and it makes a nice circle through to the end. Strange’s method of dealing with Misery is a good one, although it was quite obvious that this was how it was all going to end up!
Strange has got a good team behind him, allowing him to do what he does best, but he can’t do it without them – like a surgeon with the support nurses!
The ending was a nice teaser for what might come in the future….
 

 
A wander through not only Moon Knight’s memories, but also his brain (literally!) First off are the flashbacks – flashing back to his and Frenchie’s time in the desert with Bushman. This is leading up to his first meeting with Konshu, while the other side – walking through his mind (?) is leading up to what looks like the final meeting between the two. Although short on action, this was a very fast paced issue.
 

 
I really enjoyed this issue – Punisher was his usual crafty, violent self. Setting gruesome traps and working his way through the mercenaries. The action was brilliant and brutal and there is some really nice comic timing when Agent Ortiz is wondering where The Punisher will be – just in time for the boat to blow up. We’re up for a final battle in the next issue.
 

 
This is the one that has been causing all the fuss. Hydra are taking over and there is a new Empire. We get some explanation as to why and how Captain America is like he is – including his ‘memories’. We know the back story, but no-one else does, with Cap in charge of SHIELD and then in charge of the US defenses the betrayal is almost complete. Of course some slip under the radar, as you would expect and there are some pretty major casualties too. But this is only the beginning, and I’m pretty sure this is going to get worse before it gets better. I really like the art and the story told was excellent.
Hail Hydra
