Publisher Comments:

The shocking story line that threatens to destroy Daredevil forever!

Can you keep a secret? A really, really big secret? A secret that would crush a man's entire life, if revealed? Years ago, the notorious Kingpin of Crime learned his mortal enemy, Daredevil, was really Matt Murdock, the blind New York City lawyer and political activist. The Kingpin kept Daredevil's true identity to himself, using the knowledge to wage a private, one-on-one war with the protector of Hell's Kitchen.

But now, the Kingpin's mysterious new underboss, Mr. Silke, has also discovered Murdock's crimson alter ego — and he'll use the information to topple the Kingpin as the Big Apple's biggest crime boss. Yet when Silke's conspiracy goes dangerously awry, the secret gets out — with Daredevil's double identity blasted across the front page of The Daily Globe!

In the resulting media circus, reporters from every TV station and newspaper in the city are camped out on Murdock's front steps to get the scoop on his exposed secret life. With a camera flash at every turn, his phone ringing off the hook, and his every move scrutinized and analyzed under the microscope of public opinion, will Murdock be forced to retire Daredevil for good? And if so, how will the citizens of Hell's Kitchen recover from the loss of their greatest protector?

Collecting Daredevil (Vol. Two) #26-37, this volume features the story that rocked the Marvel Universe!

Review:

"Brian Michael Bendis is the funny-page descendant of Sam Fuller, Martin Scorsese, and Quentin Tarantino....By setting his vividly noir tales at the dark end of the street, he proves that crime does pay." Entertainment Weekly

Review:

"Bendis' script is, as usual, dialog heavy and full of clever storytelling structures. Maleev's grungy, evocative art proves as effective when dealing with superhuman feats as with conversations. Daredevil has become something exciting in their hands." Jason Franks, RevolutionSF.com

Review:

"Bendis has managed to pull this book up a level from previous writers, using his gift for plot and dialogue to deliver what seems very much like a real-world take on superheroes. The ending promises a huge change in the status quo for the title and its lead character, and this could very well mark the beginning of a significant new era in DD's history." Alan David Doane, ComicBookGalaxy.com

Synopsis:

The mystery man called Mr. Silke has inspired Wilson Fisk's lieutenants to rise up and take down the Kingpin of Crime. What is the connection between Silke's coup and the contract on Matt Murdock's life? And what role did Fisk's wife and son play in the underbosses' uprising? Plus, the FBI steps in to sort out the remains of the Kingpin's criminal empire — and their investigation may change Daredevil's life forever.

Includes material from Daredevil: Underboss and Daredevil: Out.

About the Author

Eisner Award-winning writer Brian Michael Bendis first earned acclaim in the comics industry writing gritty, reality-based dramas such as Goldfish, Jinx, and the true-crime thriller Torso. In his first work for Marvel Comics, Bendis helped launch the breakout hit Ultimate Spider-Man, quickly garnering the praise of such mainstream publications as Entertainment Weekly and USA Today. Bendis has since returned to his crime-noir roots, writing Alias for Marvel MAX and Daredevil for Marvel Knights. He also continues to write the Harvey and Eisner Award-nominated series Powers with artist Michael Avon Oeming for Image Comics.

Bulgarian native Alex Maleev has showcased his artistic talents on a wide spectrum of comic-book projects — ranging from The Crow, Star Wars, and Aliens vs. Predator at Dark Horse Comics to Batman: No Man's Land at DC Comics. His diverse output of work earned him the 1996 Russ Manning Award for Most Promising Newcomer, as well as a regular assignment on the Image Comics series Sam and Twitch, his first collaboration with writer Brian Michael Bendis. Maleev's dark, moody artwork quickly attracted the attention of Marvel Comics, which was looking for a suitable artist to pair with Bendis on Daredevil.
