“Dark Arts” continues as both Daredevil and Matt Murdock begin investigating the demonic painting made from the blood of hundreds of victims. In trouble at work for abandoning his post to help Blindspot, Murdock finds himself with a new assignment from the District Attorney – shut down the publicity of the painting which a greedy douche is using to line his own pockets. Although Murdock agrees with the concept of stopping the spread of the evil art, he is concerned with where his orders are coming from and begins to second guess his choice to join the D.A.’s office.
As for the mysterious villain, it appears he was just getting started with the blood painting. A new macabre work of art is discovered involving the bodies of several people positioned in a full scale diorama. It’s still unclear just what the artist is after. Publicity? Flaunting the police (and Daredevil’s) inability to capture him? Or something more? As for Matt Murdock’s day job, it will be interesting to see how far a man respecting justice above all else may be pushed before something eventually breaks. Worth a look.
