  1. While I’m fairly new to Daredevil, Foggy seems like the one who tries to keep him grounded. Maybe this will be a good reinvention of that character.

  2. I just started reading Daredevil with this series and am loving it!

  3. Still the best book on the stands. I quiver with anticipation.

  4. filippod (@filippodee) says:

    I’m loving Samnee more and more with each issue. This book had an awesome roster of artists so far.

    I really hope Samnee is in for the long run.

  5. Thinking about dropping this.

    • I don’t know about dropping it yet. But it has not been as good as the earlier issues.

    • Me too. It’s really gotten away from the happy-go-lucky classic Marvel feel of the first arc, It’s still a good read, with great art, so I’l give it another issue.

    • i was thinking about dropping it also, i was liking the happy daredevil with a new lease on life, but foggy does need to run a business and would be better off alone and daredevil as a consultant in the long run or daredevil could just be a p.i.

  6. “Marvel’s most famous legal team”

    Who’s the second most famous legal team?

  7. i’m tellin’ ya. his daddy’s skull is in the drawer.

    • I dunno. Whatever it is, it seems to have angered Foggy. I think if it were his dad’s skull, he’d be more concerned about Matt than angry at him.

    • yeah, but do you remember the look on Foggy’s face? pure terror and shock. besides, foggy is always so emotional when it comes to Matt. you would think they were lovers with the way he acts sometimes. lol
      it’s just the first thing that came to my mind when i saw Foggy’s face. seems interesting to think about. but, maybe you’re right. that does seem a bit dark for a Waid book. but, then again, so did Mole Man dancing with a corpse.

    • You’re totally right about the look on Foggy’s face leaning more towards shock than anger. But I’m goin by the solicits and all the talk about how this will fracture their friendship. Now, finding out that your friend keeps his father’s skull in his desk drawer could end a lot of friendships, but Foggy and Matt have always had a Watson/Holmes, Wilson/House type relationship. Like you said, you would think they’re lovers the way Foggy looks out for him. So if he did find a skull in Matt’s drawer, I think he’d wanna get him some help, not storm out on him.

      Just sayin. Who knows?

  8. This issue should be awesome, after the ending of the last one I was hoping Ant-Man would make an appearance. I think Waid is gonna start messing with the expectations he has set up over the past year, and I trust him as a writer, so I’m totally on board with whatever he decides to throw at us. Also, I was a Samnee fan before, but he just keeps getting better every issue. I’m so glad they got someone as great as him to draw this, after the unfortunate departure of Rivera and Martin.

  9. Last issue was the step in the right direction for the series. Let’s hope they continue the trend.

  10. Man.. Matt’s life sucks.

  11. CALLED IT!!!

  12. started getting this way too late, only Marvel comic I get. I haven’t read this issue yet but my guess is that with the Foggy draw discovery being a flashback it may be the data disc thing. does foggy know Matt is daredevil? I’m probably 100% wrong.

  13. It’s going to be interesting if Matt really was set up or if he’s going so crazy he doesn’t even remembering doing THE DEED.

    Samnee is still not wowing me on art. I know he has a lot of fans but I really don’t see what the fuss is all about sometimes. However his work was much better this issue, that big panel with DD jumping out of the plane was great. He’s slowly converting me but I think I just miss Rivera’s excellence.

  14. I found this issue to be really slow, did we need so much of the book to be recovery?

    Still I enjoyed it. Looking forward to Allred

    • Umm, daredevil relies pretty heavily on his senses, so yeah, getting those back to full functional form was very important for the character going forward.

      The links in memories between hank and Matt was awesome. That whole portion is what made this my pick of the week.

      The whole ‘how did that get there’ left a great cliffhanger plot for an upcoming issue. So I felt more than satisfied with this one and cannot wait til the next!

  15. Very good issue. I’m interested to see where Foggy and Matt go from here. And how/why that got in his desk.

  16. This is how you do a shrink-down-so-you-can-operate-inside-the-human-body story. The beginning premise is the same as Fantastic Voyage, but with a unique spin featuring the strengths & characteristics of the Marvel heroes involved: Hank Pym & Matt Murdock. The way not to do it is the way Hickman did it in Fantastic Four #606.

  17. I think I’ll be sticking with this. I like that this issue was sort of a breather compared to what’s been going on in the last few issues, but still, it’s taken a total 180 from its original purpose. It’s still good, and Samnee continues to dazzle me with his cartooning skills.
