The Rundown: With Matt Murdock gone, the people he cared for fight to move forward.
In the wake of Matt’s sacrifice and freeing the people he cares about from the hell they were held in, those who remember and care for him struggle to move on. Some immerse themselves in new ventures. Some fight for justice within the system the way he did. Some simply remember how complicated he was.
Elektra has had some life changing revelations and finally understands Matt’s mission as Daredevil as she dons the red and takes to the streets of Hell’s Kitchen. At the same time, a young priest at the local parish begins to have a strange awakening within himself.
The Story: Zdarsky crafts a fantastic story in this issue. I love all the subtle moments within it with all the characters. I love that the story takes the time to show how the characters are dealing with Matt’s absence and their commitment to life in the wake of it. I really enjoyed the tone of the story and how it manages to capture both loss and life as well as add some great action and thrills. I continue to be excited about this series and this issue makes me want to read more.
The Art: Checchetto delivers fantastic art throughout the issue. The visuals brilliantly showcase the characters, the environments and the emotion of the story itself.
