Two reviews of Sequart’s The Devil is in the Details: Examining Matt Murdock and Daredevil describe the volume’s strengths and weaknesses.
A review by Gereg Jones Muller calls the book “fascinating” and contains this passage:
Anyone who grew up on Daredevil in the ’60s, anyone who admired Frank Miller’s redevelopment of the series in the ’80s, or any more recent fans whose recollections of the character may not stretch back any time before the 21st century, will find these articles intriguing and informative.
Dr. Wesley Britton’s review on bookpleasures.com singles out the book’s longest essay as “especially well done” and recommends the book for Daredevil fans.
Both reviews mention the diversity of the collection, which includes essays that are somewhat more fannish and others that are somewhat more academic. That diversity’s very important to us, and we believe that there’s a place for both. Hopefully, these strains meet somewhere in the middle, with both sides being analytic but accessible, although any given essay might fall more on one side than the other. Forging that middle ground is kind of Sequart’s point.
We certainly appreciate reviews of our books and movies, whatever their viewpoint, and we encourage our readers to check them out! Thanks to all concerned.
