[Ed. Note: POTENTIAL SPOILER ALERT!! Continue with caution.]


It begins with a client telling Foggy about his sister being framed of a gruesome murder. He agrees to take the case but realizes he will need the help of Matt Murdock. Matt opens his apartment to find a woman from his past named Milla, who should be in a mental institution. In desperation Matt calls Foggy to check the institution where she had been staying. Maybe Foggy is right about Murdock. The further along Waid takes us the more it starts to look like Matt might have lost his marbles.

That is what makes this run of Daredevil so special as it gives us a character who is constantly changing. From one issue to the next you can’t really be sure of Matt’s motives. Certainly at the end of this issue it starts to look bad for Murdock. Why does he start seeing a demon from his past? Is Milla a hallucination or part of a complex plan to drive Matt’s allies away from him? This may be the beginning of something bigger for Daredevil.

As always Chris Samnee brings a dynamic style to the Daredevil Universe. With flashy whips of the billy club and acrobatic jumps, that make you want to cry for joy. Reminding us that comics can be fun.
