Characters Appearing: Daredevil
Issue(s): Daredevil #343
My favorite part is Ellis/DD making fun of his current/new costume, saying it resembles Venetian blinds and wonders "What was I thinking?" (regarding not just the costume but the whole fake identity status quo).
One minor weakness/unintentionally funny bit is when DD is fighting the random thugs and he needs a weapon, so he puts a pool ball in a sock. Ellis devotes a fair amount of narration to explaining what a borstal is (a British prison for youths) and how Matt Murdock knows what a borstal is (he studied them as a lawyer) and how in borstals the kids sometimes use a pool ball in a sock as a weapon. I mean, it's not like we don't have juvenile detention in the US, or we haven't seen a million movies where people in prisons fill a sock with rocks or coins to use as a weapon. Nothing wrong with the sequence, just funny that Ellis felt the need to go out of his way to make it a British thing.
Anyway, the biggest problem with the issue is the art. Despite having three veterans on art duty, the art looks like, well, this.
Quality Rating: C
Chronological Placement Considerations: Pushed back in publication time a bit so that Daredevil #344 can come prior to Hulk #433 (for the Over The Edge crossover).
Continuity Insert? N
