daredevil-11-coverConcluding a storyline that begin in Avenging Spider-Man #5 and continued in Punisher #10 (two comics I didn’t read) Daredevil #11 finds our hero teamed with Spider-Man and the Punisher. His plan to lure Megacrime out into the open using the Omega Drive as bait has hit something of a snag as the threesome find themselves betrayed by Castle’s partner and surrounded by A.I.M. and HYDRA agents.

Although I didn’t read the first two issues of this arc, it’s pretty easy to get up to speed. Honestly, what I found the hardest to wrap my brain around was the fact the Punisher A) had a beard and B) had a female sidekick. Seriously, when did this happen?

As Daredevil chases down Rachel to retrieve the drive Spidey and the Punisher (who is trying very hard not to kill anyone) give the beatdown to a number of terrorist soldiers in ridiculous costumes.

Even with the pairing of this unlikely threesome the adventure itself isn’t all that memorable. However, it is punctuated by some nice dialogue between Spidey and Daredvil and some strong opening internal monologue from the man without fear. It’s also got some terrific art by Marco Checchetto. Month after month, even with a revolving group of artists, Daredvevil continues to be one of the best looking comics around. Worth a look.
