The Superior Spider-Man makes a cameo as he’s tasked with bringing the seemingly insane Daredevil to justice. The only problem? Long forgotten bad guy Stilt Man is terrorizing Manhattan! Can Spider-Man put aside his prime directive and team up with Daredevil to take down the sinister slinky? Plus, Matt Murdock receives some very distressing news about his best friend Foggy. Will Matt be able to hold it together and be there for his friend or will his alter-ego keep him from standing by Foggy’s side?

As I've said before, Waid has been pushing Murdock to his absolute limit during his time with the character. He’s had Daredevil show great courage in the face of seemingly insurmountable odds but on this occasion, it’s not Daredevil that needs to stand tall, it’s Matt.

There’s some fantastic storytelling with some real emotional depth here. Waid explores the other side of being a superhero; what it means to be there for those who deeply care for you, putting aside rushing off to perform your duty to the masses. It’s worth noting that Waid isn’t climbing onto a soapbox and dictating what’s more important, the needs of the few or the needs of the many, but is trying to put a more human face on the costumed crusader.

This has been a pretty good series up to this point. There have been a few bumps in the road along the way but otherwise consistent overall. Now that I've caught up, I’ll have to start getting the monthly issues. ( )

Matt is having a bad time, Foggy has something not quite right with him, and someone is targetting him.

The scene with the kids and Iron Man in the cancer ward? Made me cry. Some of the books on cancer recovery suggest using visualisation of shrinking or defeating the cancer as part of therapy. It caught me and really struck home. The issues with Daredevil fighting his own demons was interesting too. It had interesting parallels.

I want to read the rest now. ( )
