Manhunter #31 Review

Recently reviewed by me at CBR: Manhunter #31, about which I write the following sentences: " It's basically a comic about a lawyer who moonlights as a costumed vigilante, and the comparisons to Marvel's 'Daredevil' can't be avoided. But unlike 'Daredevil,' which, even when it's been good, has wallowed in despair and self-pity, 'Manhunter' is a much more active, aggressive book. Things happen with speed and force in 'Manhunter,' while in "Daredevil," under Brian Michael Bendis, especially, but also under Ed Brubaker, the plot has inched along, slowly building toward inevitability. You might say that 'Manhunter' is a more superhero-centric, old-school 'Daredevil,' but done in a contemporary style."
