Characters Appearing: Daredevil, Karen Page
Issue(s): Daredevil #316
And the art gets increasingly sloppy and/or abstract as the issue goes on.
But even with that it's a nice little story with Daredevil dealing with ordinary crime, and it also touches on topical issues like racism in the police force. I don't have a ton to say about it, but i like stories like this especially for low-powered heroes like Daredevil, instead of having them deal with epic threats all the time. It's nice to just see them being heroes and having a positive impact on the world. The Punisher books, in their own way, manage to do this sort of thing entertainingly all the time, but it's less common in the super-hero books. And it shouldn't be, because we need to see that heroes are effective in the Marvel universe instead of constantly seeing them struggle - especially with their own lives falling apart as happens constantly in Daredevil. And the appearance of a super-villain therefore becomes more special, the contrast with a 12 part scheme by the Kingpin is more pronounced, etc.. Anyway, it's a nice treat when we do get an issue like this.
