A New Comic Series That I Love!

I mostly quit buying new comics about a year ago. Not that I don’t like them, or think they’re bad – I just wasn’t willing to shell out so much money gambling on whether the issues would be good or not. The big exception, of course, is my favorite hero: Daredevil. Although I don’t have a pull-list at the local shop anymore, I still order the latest DD comics online every few months so that I can keep up with this awesome series. This most recent batch cost me a few extra dollars because issues #21 and #22 were more expensive and harder to find. Oh well, it was worth it and that is the price of being a collector right?


At the end of Daredevil #20 our horned hero was in a real bind as a bunch of just-released prisoners turned on him and Coyote. This issue begins with Matt struggling to save not only himself but Coyote and The Spot from the crazed mob. The Spot, who has been generating the power for Coyote’s head-stealing scheme, comes crashing down when DD frees him, only to go after Coyote. Daredevil tries, and although he gets a confession out of Coyote, he can’t save him from being kidnapped by the now free Spot. Oh well, at least his actions convince the mob that he isn’t to blame, and they all escape back to civilization. Matt pays Foggy a little visit with some evidence that will help tremendously with Foggy’s case, and how does his former partner re-pay him? By telling him that he told Miss McDuffie that Daredevil was mentally unstable. Now while that may be true, it doesn’t help DD’s case – because the assistant D.A. enlists the help of the newly created Superior Spider-Man to track down Daredevil! Run Matt run!

How I Rate This Issue:

  • Story: 5 stars – A very satisfying end to a really cool story arc! The confession of Coyote, and Matt and Foggy’s little tiff were super interesting, and the ending brought yet another surprise to this excellent series!
  • Art: 5 stars – Another great job by a fabulous art team! Samnee’s and Rodriquez’s art was really fun to look at – especially The Spot, who was a grotesque blob of hands and arms! +1 for Rivera’s awesome cover of DD in a coyote skull! Beautiful!
  • Fun Factor: 5 stars – It was totally fun reading the conclusion to this story, and the team did a great job with that. It was also cool to see what they have planned for the upcoming issues. Keep it coming boys!
