I like to call this photoset "Holy fucking shit, Paolo Rivera."

Today’s Daredevil #9 was another fantastic issue from Mark Waid and Paolo Rivera and while I can’t wait for issue #10 and the conclusion to this awesome story I want to spend a second to appreciate Rivera’s cover for that issue here. Rivera’s not afraid to pull out some Gustave Dore reference in his ink on woodblock cover. Even the story of the arc reminds me of Dante traveling through Hell in Inferno (The Divine Comedy). I’m pretty sure that’s no accident on the part of Waid.

I swear, I may have to buy into the new Daredevil book for the art alone:
