daredevil-5-coverAfter the attempt on Austin Cao’s life, Matt Murdock has no choice but to accept the blind linguistic genius case. By recreating the scene of event Murdock tries to jog his client’s memory to find what he heard that got him fired from Roxxon Oil. What he uncovers is a link to H.Y.D.R.A. and a far more dangerous situation than he would have ever guessed.

The entire sequence of Murdock taking down the assassins and moving Cao to a safehouse is terrific and is exceptionally well thought out with one blind character leading another through a series of necessary steps and providing just the right information, no more, no less.

The B-story involves Foggy‘s attempt to convince his new girlfriend’s roommate that Matt Murdock isn’t Daredevil. His argument is less than successful until he comes up with either the smartest or dumbest idea the character has ever had. Worth a look.
