Daredevil #10 Cover, Holy Mackerel!

The cover for the upcoming Daredevil #10 was released a little while ago, and it’s blowing. my. mind. Seriously, how good is Paolo Rivera? That guy.

Daredevil is easily one of the most fun and refreshing superhero comics to come out in a long time, and the art is a huge reason why. If you’re not reading this book, get on it.
