Free advice to all readers: Do judge this book by its cover. Even if you don't care about the content of the issue, the cover alone is worth the purchase. Paolo and Joe Rivera outdid themselves with a beautifully intricate piece that evokes the mystery novels from the early 1900s; a magnificent work of art that mesmerizes at first sight. Once able to get past the cover, readers will find that the interior is indeed just as good. Mark Waid plots a great story that immerses Daredevil in a genre he is rarely seen in. The horror theme of this adventure serves as a backdrop for the many contrasts and similarities between the Man Without Fear and the Mole Man, doing wonders to characterization. Their fighting sequence was also exciting and well orchestrated, and without Javier Rodriguez's colors, it would not have been the same. This back to basics approach for the title is making of it one of the best in the industry.
