daredevil-20-coverAfter literally loosing his head in the pocket dimension Coyote has trapped him in, Daredevil begins plotting his escape a his body moves through the villain’s realm while his head keeps Coyote distracting in a Bond villain style rant (in which he explains every detail of his nefarious enterprises).

In the B-story Kristen McDuffie, who apparently works the offices of Mad Men, finds it impossible to get her bosses to take a crazy Daredevil seriously when they accuse her of having a lover’s spat with her boyfriend. Although it skirts the issue of Foggy‘s drunken confession, the McDuffie outcome is troubling at best as writer Mark Waid and Marvel Editorial have deciding the New York District Attorney’s Office is perpetually stuck in (an overly cliched version of) the 1950’s.

The Coyote story works far better, although bringing up (and showing) human trafficking as one of Coyote’s new interests does feel a little unseemly for what has been up until now a pretty safe all-ages book. Hit-and-Miss.
