DAREDEVIL
by Kevin Smith, Joe Quesada, Richard Rohan [Adapt.] | Read by a Full Cast

This may be the best Marvel audiobook ever created! It takes full advantage of technology but doesn’t overburden the listener with over-the-top performances or special effects. The actor playing Daredevil conveys equal parts strength and uncertainty as he’s caught up in a holy war, which thrusts a dilemma upon him when he’s asked to kill a baby to save the earth. While the acting is top-notch, the plot is the star as Daredevil struggles to do the right thing. The narrators who portray the villains refrain from caricature. Instead, they make the crime kingpins and otherworldly creatures drip with evil without losing any credibility. M.S. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2016, Portland, Maine
