Good lord have I reviewed a ton of comic books this week... It's all starting to blend together! I mean it seems like I JUST reviewed an issue of DD last week! Wait, I did review an issue of DD last week... Huh. Well, here's this week's installment of Daredevil!
Summary: The first couple of pages here detail how the life of Matt Murdock/Daredevil has changed since he began coaching his clients to act as their own attorneys in order to continue practicing law without stepping foot inside a courtroom. Unfortunately for Matt, this has led to a lot of nutjobs coming to the law offices of Murdock and Nelson looking for help. Foggy Nelson(Matt's law partner) has been doing what he could to screen the people with no real cases, and tells DD about one case he was interested in taking, that of a young blind man who wanted to sue his company for wrongful termination. Matt(after stopping a few crimes as DD) heads to the man's apartment and asks about the case, learning that the man worked for Midas Investments, was a well respected translator in the company, and was suddenly fired after he heard some people leaving the office building speaking in Latverian. Matt presses to see if there was anything else he could learn, but the man can't seem to figure out why he was fired. The man wonders if his boss thought that he overheard something he shouldn't have from the passing Latverians, but Matt doubts it since the man's boss never inquired as to what the man may have heard. Ultimately, Matt doesn't think the man has much of a case, and tells him that with his skills he'd be hired again in no time. This issue ends with Matt and the man standing in front of the man's window with several sniper scopes trained on them.
Thoughts: I enjoyed this issue. I like the direction Mark Waid has taken Matt's character job-wise, and DD's more... um, jovial, I guess, attitude isn't as jarring to me as it was the past few issues. I really can't think of all that much more to say that I haven't already said between this post and last week's DD post...
Score: 7 1/2 out of 10.That's gotta be the WORST villains ever!!
