Issue(s): Daredevil #268
The loanshark's brother, meanwhile, decides on his own to not go through with it anymore.
The loanshark (who it turns out was working for the Kingpin), decides to get out of town. You can see Matt kind of bitterly taking secret credit for helping, although again it is worth noting that the brother had decided to get out on his own.
In case Daredevil wasn't depressing enough lately, this issue also has the good brother repeatedly flashing back to when he was a kid and they had to amputate his dog's leg, and how (he thinks) the dog stopped trusting him after that.
These Daredevils are extremely bleak but quite good. Nocenti's scripting is perfect for a book just mired in disassociative misery, and JRJR is doing nice character work. I do wonder how they played in a market designed primarily for super-hero comics, which recent issues are decidedly not.

Oh man, I ended up with a number of these Nocenti Daredevils as a kid; they scared the shit out of me and I had no idea what was going on.
