Being that I’m a huge fan of Mark Waid’s Daredevil, and that I’ve not been feeling his Hulk run as much as I wanted to, it makes a lot of sense that this 2-parter that guest-stars the man without fear has been my favourite story so far.
The bulk of this issue was Daredevil trying to stop the Hulk from destroying a Hydra weapons cache hidden underneath New York. Hulk has been driven berserk by the Sonic Gun thing from last issue, and it was up to DD to stop him. It was a little convenient that the gun made people go blind, so therefore didn’t effect Daredevil, but hey, it’s comics. Matteo Scalera’s artwork has really impressed me in this story, he draws one heck of a Hulk, and I’m very excited to see what he’ll get up to with Remender on ‘Black Science.
I found the ending to this issue very cool, with the reveal that, one of the reasons Bruce Banner has Matt Murdock as his lawyer is that, if SHIELD crosses Banner, Murdock will go all Snowden on our asses, and leak to the press about some bad shit the US Government is doing. Presumably, this bad shit is that they are employing the Hulk, but could there be more to it? I mean, Hulk is publicly on the Avengers these days, would there be that much controversy if it was revealed that SHIELD were employing him? What else could there be? I also wonder if this is the last we’ll see of Baron Zemo in this series.
Oh yeah, and I loved how Banner’s narration had citations from fictional academics, like some dude from the University Of Latveria, that was a nice touch. In a book all about the Hulk, it’s the little things.
