Daredevil #18

Writer: Mark Waid
Artist: Chris Samnee

After a huge fallout with his best friend and business partner, Foggy Nelson wants to move on and have some sense of normalcy in his life; but it is commonly known that once associated with those hero-types, "normal" takes a whole new meaning. Meanwhile, Matt Murdock, who is trying to prove he is not crazy, finds the task somewhat cumbersome when he becomes involved in strange situations not only in his personal life but also as Daredevil. What is so charming about this title under Mark Waid's writing, is the easiness in which one can jump in without having to know a boatload of previous history to understand what is going on; the plot takes care of explaining what needs to be known along the way. Chris Samnee shows his worth with clean lines and great facial expressions; especially Foggy's; upset, surprised, regretful, even annoyed, the gestures are very natural and make the story that much more enjoyable.
