Daredevil #9

Matt Murdock heads underground (after a rather lame joke as Foggy notices Matt wearing his Daredevil boots under his clothes) to discover what has happened to his father’s body and several others that have been stolen from the cemetery where he was put to rest.

I’ve never been a fan of the Mole Man. The me the Silver Age Fantastic Four villain is better left in the 60′s. So maybe it’s that the latest issue of Daredevil is a Mole Man storyline, or perhaps its the fact that Matt Mudrock’s wild night with the Black Cat isn’t directly addressed (other than one or two thought panels and a momentary hesitation by the thief robbing him), or maybe it’s because so much of this issue felt like LOTR (a ton of walking before we get to any action), but I didn’t think this issue #9 was as good as I expected.

Don’t get me wrong, I still enjoyed the issue, and I’m sure writer Mark Waid’s explanation into the Mole Man’s behavior is a good one. I’m just hoping the arc ends quickly and get back to the Black Cat and the mysterious FF artifact everyone is after. Worth a look.
