Daredevil and Captain America: Dead on Arrival #1 Review

Recently reviewed by me at CBR: Daredevil and Captain America: Dead on Arrival #1, about which I write the following sentences: "Certainly Larry Hama is responsible for the word choice here, and because it seems like his task was to take the translated script and wedge it into the already extant word balloons, he is sometimes forced into redundancy, as when Nick Fury -- in full-on Basil Exposition mode -- describes Death-Stalker's current status: 'Cold meat,' he says, 'Pushing up daisies. Deader than a doornail…' It's a bit much, isn’t it? Perhaps it's a faithful translation of Faraci's words, but it feels like filler. It feels like something had to be used to fill up those word balloons. And it doesn't make for a particularly pleasant reading experience, even though the rest of the issue is relatively less dialogue heavy."
