Daredevil #18 (Looking right at her Spoilers)

Postby Punchy » Fri Sep 21, 2012 9:57 am

Another truly fantastic issue of Daredevil, this book really has been excellent since #1, and this new storyline may very well be the best yet as Waid gets even darker. The best thing about this book is the contrast between the lightness and the darkness, and this issue had that, with the introduction of a new, interesting case that has me scratching my head, and some very exciting action scenes with DD taking on the mob. But it was also really dark, super-dark, because of the return of Matt Murdock’s ex-wife, Milla Donovan. When last we saw her she had been driven insane by Mister Fear, and Matt was forbidden from even visiting her. I, like a lot of lot readers, assumed she’d been forgotten about, but no! Matt returns home from a date with Kirsten to find her in his house, with no memory of anything bad happening to her. A real WTF moment, and it only gets worse, as Matt gets Foggy to go to the Asylum to see how she escaped, only for Foggy to find that… she’s still there, and catatonic! What is going on? Has Matt gone even crazier? Or is he being manipulated by someone? (Probably the creepy looking dude on the cover to #19) I just don’t know. It’s great of Waid to bring back Milla, and exciting to see him trying to have his cake and eat it too. The dark days haven’t been dropped, but the contrast between the lighter tone has only made them more interesting. Chris Samnee’s artwork was brilliant as well, he works very well with Waid, and really, this is just one of the best books out there, there can be no argument.

This all feels like a half dozen old Mysterio plots.

Hopefully Waid's better than that.

well, Waid is better than that, but yeah, clearly this Coyote cat is gonna be a Mysterio-esque mindfucker. i think that's obvious at this point.
