Characters Appearing: Daredevil, Foggy Nelson, Kingpin
Issue(s): Daredevil #194
Before that, he grew up in a religious community (a fictional analogue of the Amish), and he killed his abusive father when he was young. Now that he is near death, he wants redemption and re-admittance to his community. His brother is one of the Elders of the community, and he was there when Jeremiah killed their father (in fact, he was goading his father on)...
...and he's not interested in re-admitting Jeremiah.
Jeremiah hires Matt Murdock to argue his case for him. He also requests protection from the Kingpin...
...but the Kingpin's goons just complicate things.
In the end the plea is rejected, and Matt realizes that the candles that Jeremiah uses to light his room are actually poisoned. He rushes home in time to save Jeremiah's life. But in the end Jeremiah decides to return home anyway, and face whatever punishment his brother and his community will dish out to him.
An unusual sort of story. I liked it. Klaus Janson's art is great as usual; i really liked the smokey scenes with Daredevil fighting the Kingpin's goons.
Quality Rating: B-
Chronological Placement Considerations: N/A
Continuity Insert? N
My Reprint: N/A
This was my first solo issue of Daredevil (id met him in team up books before). I was no doubt attracted by the cover. I think my young mind couldnt quite appreciate a story with no super-villans but looking back its a really great issue, particularly the ending.
