When Good Plans Work Well

Have you ever created a good plan – you know, a really great strategy – and had it work flawlessly? I have a few times – although not as often as I would have liked! It feels good though, knowing that you put your intellect to work and it paid off. In this issue we get to see the fruit of Daredevil’s labors – and they turn out pretty good, which is really cool!


Last issue closed with Daredevil discovering that a handicapped Bullseye was the mastermind behind all the grief in Matt’s life for the past two years. This issue picks right up where that one left off, as Matt holds off Ikari and threatens the helpless Bullseye. Well, you know how comic villains work, and now that DD is in a precarious position Bullseye reveals how he did it all. It seems that after everyone thought he was dead, he was really just irreparably damaged and Lady Bullseye tried to have him fixed up again. Well, it didn’t work, so the villain turned to plotting out his revenge on Daredevil, and has spent the past few years using all of Matt’s close friends in his dastardly scheme. In fact, he has sent people to harm them right now – unless DD engages Ikari in mortal combat! Well guess what? Matt also sent people to watch them – you know, people like Spider-man and Black Widow – so he isn’t too worried! Ka-ching! Matt’s nice revelation throws the villains off a bit, so DD uses that small advantage to attack and he eventually draws Ikari, Lady Bullseye and Bullseye into a dangerous area where he has the advantage! Anyway, in true comic fashion the hero wins the day, puts the villains away, and explains to his friend Foggy how he accomplished it all. Whew – nice work Daredevil!

How I Rate This Issue:

  • Story: 5 stars – Even though it was kind of a clichéd story idea, it was executed beautifully and with some twists that totally caught me off guard! Bravo!
  • Art: 4 stars – I kind of feel like a broken record concerning the art in this series – but it was fantastic yet again! I love the simple style with bold colors!
  • Fun Factor: 4 stars – It was nice finally finding out about Bullseye and how he has been torturing DD for the past couple of years!
