Daredevil #119

This is part 4 of the "eturn of the King"storyline and is written by Ed Brubaker.

-This issue has more of DD running around but accomplishing nothing. His alliance with Kingpin is beginning to fall apart, as it seems that Kingpin has been using the Owl as his proxy(behind Daredevil's back)to trick the Hand into doing his dirty work, ie. kill off the mobsters who have sprouted up in NYC while he's been out of country.

-Foggy tells Dakota that DD has been missing since Foggy fired him, and that he's worried about Matt. Dakota decides to find DD in order to prevent him from making any more dumb decisions.

-Daredevil tries to find Kingpin, but runs into Master Izo instead, who wants to show Matt something.

-Lady Bullseye reveals to the Owl that she knows Kingpin has been directing him, and she demands to meet Fisk. Before going to see Fisk she sends several members of the Hand to kill Foggy. While Fisk and Lady Bullseye are meeting, Dakota manages to follow Kingpin's gofer, Turk, back to Fisk's hideout. Dakota watches the meeting between Fisk and Lady Bullseye, until Lady Bullseye makes her and the Owl swoops in and knocks Dakota out, ending this issue.

There, that wasn't all that bad. This comic was good, but the delay between issue #118 and this one kind of hurt the flow of the story for me. I kept forgetting what happened last issue, and that definitely took away from the overall enjoyment of this issue. What I did understand I liked, with the exception of Matt himself. He was really acting stupid/whiny this entire issue. He makes a mess of his life, cheats on his wife, makes a deal with his arch-nemesis and then whines about it all... Ugh, enough already Matt! You've made your bed, now sleep in it! For a score I'll give this comic a 7 1/2 out of 10 and hope that the next issue comes out in a more timely fashion.
