Daredevil #23

Writer: Mark Waid
Artist: Chris Samnee

Someone out there is sick enough to put a group of men through the same horrific accident that took away Matt Murdock's sight and gave him his amazing abilities. That same individual is unleashing these crazed men into the city, and it's up to Daredevil to stop them. Amidst this crisis, the man without fear also stands next to his best friend Foggy Nelson, as he is about to face one of the most nerve wracking moments anyone can experience in their lifetime. Waid and Samnee orchestrate a great story that mixes the heroics everyone loves with the mortifying hours prior to Foggy's doctor appointment. All the anxiety, silly joking, and false optimism are perfectly played out in the dialogue and the visuals, while Rodriguez's colors make a huge contribution to the different moods of the book. The issue is also an excellent jump-in point for new readers as Daredevil's origin is retold parallel to the still unknown villain's plan.
