Read full description of the books Daredevil: Guardian Devil:Well, this was a pleasant surprise.
I had precisely zero expectations for what to expect from “Guardian Devil,” based on the plot synopsis (Daredevil has to protect an infant from a weird organization that believes it will grow up to be the Antichrist)…but when I realized out that it also happened to be written by none other than Kevin Smith, the filmmaker behind “Clerks” and “Chasing Amy”? Well, let’s just say that I still feel like I’m falling down the rabbit hole a little bit with that one.
But really, I shouldn’t. Because “Guardian Devil” is good–really good. In fact, I think there’s an argument to be made that it tackles its themes of redemption, Catholic guilt, and nature vs. nurture in a richer, even more narratively gratifying manner than Frank Miller’s acclaimed “Born Again” did, a story that “Guardian Devil” actually feels very much like a direct sequel to. While I appreciated “Born Again” for its ambition, I ultimately was underwhelmed by the odd direction that Miller decided to take his story–too much of the arc ended up feeling aimless, even inconsequential.
Not so with “Guardian Devil.” While Smith, like Miller, seeds several different plot threads across the first two or three issues, UNLIKE Miller, Smith actually takes care to ensure that everything here actually either a.) ties together satisfyingly into one singular narrative, or b.) directly enhances the broader themes. Not everything in “Guardian Devil” quite works–I’m still not sure, for example, why Doctor Strange’s presence was required, other than for an admittedly cool “Hey, it’s Doctor Strange!” moment–but on the whole, as a Daredevil tale, there’s quite a bit to like here. That it's from the mind of the guy behind “Mallrats” only makes it all the more impressive.
