Marvel Comics

Written by Saladin Ahmed

Letters by Clayton Cowles

The Rundown: Daredevil and Elektra confront Wilson Fisk, but Matt has problems close to home.

Matt finds himself in the middle of a small crisis when one of the kids at the orphanage he runs discovers that he is Daredevil. A situation that becomes even worse when the kid reveals something dark to Matt. Something that is directly connected to his other persona.

Amid his crisis, he discovers the location of where Fisk is hiding. Teaming with Elektra, the pair infiltrate the building and when Daredevil finally confronts the Kingpin, he discovers too late that there is something more powerful at play and everyone in Matt’s life is at risk.

The Story: Ahmed crafts a dark story in this issue, but something about it feels off. The other issues have tackled some interesting themes for the character, but I was expecting more from this confrontation and found it lacking in many ways. It lacked the palpable tension I expected from a Daredevil vs Kingpin confrontation and Daredevil himself seemed too self-absorbed to be effective. I wasn’t expecting a decisive victory in this issue, but everything about it from tone to execution felt limp and unmotivated.

The Art: Cabal delivers some great art in the issue. The action is visually fun and there are some great dramatic moments between the characters.
