Issue(s): Daredevil #238
Sabretooth... everywhere else a violent killer but still a man - A MAN - now a real tiger, taking a mate, defending his turf. Weird, weird. Even Daredevil senses a half-tiger heartbeat.
Metaphor is demonstrated with dogs.
Dogs? But tigers are cats. Ok, cats too.
The metaphor is itself a metaphor.
"What do you do with your kills?"
Daredevil... Olympic athletes do not compare.
Word travels fast when the dead are washed away in the fires of heaven. Street urchins move in.
Sabretooth is a killer and a tiger man, and also takes direction from children.
You're good. I'm better. So what?
Mugger victim says DD only attracts trouble, then Sabretooth shows up to attack just because Daredevil exists, old couple gets hurt.
DD's radar sight no advantage in Morlock tunnels when fighting a tiger-dog-man. Sabretooth knows the blindness of his prey.
What do you do with your kills? It makes me... act like no version of myself you've ever seen before!
Quality Rating: C+
Chronological Placement Considerations: Hopefully this takes place after Thor clears the Morlock tunnels in Thor #374, or else all these kids are going to wind up fried (the absence of dead bodies seems to confirm it). Per the lettercol in X-Men #212, this takes place between the Wolverine/Sabretooth fights in X-Men #212-213.
Crossover: Mutant Massacre
Continuity Insert? N
My Reprint: N/A
LMAO best review ever!

Yeah, that was pretty funny.
I'm going to start using "I have slept. AND NOW I HUNGER!" at every possible opportunity.

Well, at least they were trying to do something original after Miller run(s).
You can't follow that with some run of the mill writer.
Nocenti Daredevil is an interesting experiment.
Not very readable though.
