Daredevil #7

Mark Waid continues his praised Daredevil run with a special story just in time for the holidays.  Matt Murdock and a bunch of kids find themselves in a dire situation after the bus they travel in crashes and they are left to fend by themselves in the middle of a blizzard.  You hear stories like this one on the news all the time, so what takes place in this issue is really not that far-fetched; what I found really compelling was the fact that Daredevil was kind of freaking out.  The man without fear.  The one who has fought against impossible odds.  He was actually at a loss.  There was no big baddie to fight, there was no nuclear device about to go off; it was just he and the responsibility of saving these children from nature.  Of course, this story could not have been this perfect without Paolo Rivera, Javier Rodriguez, and Joe Rivera's pencils, colors, and inks.  What a well told holiday tale.
