Forbidden Love!

Have you ever been attracted to someone when you know you shouldn’t be? (And if you say “no” I’ll think you’re lying!) I have – and yeah, its a strange feeling that’s for sure! How you act (or re-act) to that attraction is really the bigger and more important question, and in this issue we get to see Matt go through a roller-coaster of emotions as he tries to decide between the lovely Karen Page (with all her baggage) and the sweet, sexy Mary (with her crazy dual personalities!)

Notable Notes: Origin and 1st appearance of Typhoid Mary!

Another of Daredevil’s Crazy Girlfriends!

So, after reviewing Daredevil #168 (which includes the origin and 1st appearance of Elektra) I was in the mood to try another of Daredevil’s femme fatale firsts: Typhoid Mary! By the way, did you know there was a real Typhoid Mary? Yep, poor lady! I’m not sure how much she influenced this comic book version – but I’ll let you know as I get more into the storyline.
