Even though this issue didn’t actually feature Daredevil taking on Doctor Doom (hey, it’s the battle of the DDs, insert a joke about boobs here), it was still awesome, and I say that despite the fact I had completely gotten the ending of #13, I had thought it had something to do with Klaw and that DD (referring to Daredevil here, not Doom) had been replaced ages ago, but instead it was just a simple (sic) teleportation. Daredevil comes face to face with the head of the Latverian bank, and after a seemingly harmless gas attack, he’s free to go, but in a brilliant bit of characterisation, he plays right into the villain’s hands by attacking them, Daredevil really doesn’t look before he leaps. A thrilling chase through Latveria ensues, with this issue really evoking the character’s swash-buckling roots, he’s in a country that looks straight out of a Douglas Fairbanks movie. Of course, the gas Daredevil inhaled wasn’t actually harmless, but instead slowly takes away his senses, which adds a race against time element to the story. I absolutely love that at the end of this issue DD totally failed to escape, it undercut the story beautifully, and shocked me a lot, I can’t wait to see how he eventually does get out of this situation, and hopefully see him actually come face to face with Doom. Chris Samnee’s art was fantastic, his first issue was a slow, character issue, but here he got to unleash his action chops, and it was awesome. Oh yeah, and more intrigue back in NYC with Foggy worrying about Matt, what’s in the drawer? I’m guessing it’s Battlin’ Jack’s skull!
