daredevil-14-coverPicking up from the previous issue’s cliffhanger, Daredevil finds himself unfeed and sensory deprived in a Latverian prison for more than 17 hours. By the time Chancellor Exchequer Beltane shows up to pronounce sentence on him for “fiscal terrorism” the man without fear is weakened and primed to be gassed.

Daredevil escapes the castle but he learns that although the mysterious gas didn’t kill him, it is playing havoc on his senses. Slowly his sense of touch, taste and smell leave him making the blind lawyer rely even heavier on his radar sense as he attempts to make it out of Latveria as quickly as possible.

The latest issue reminded me of D.O.A. with Daredevil standing in for Dennis Quaid‘s character (not a good thing). The purposeful further teasing of what Foggy found, and a profound decision for the character, makes me care even less about the subplot that I did when it was introduced last month. Still worth a look, but this issue feels far too much like filler.
