Overall rating: 3.5 out of 5 stars

Not going to say too much about the art this time, as Lark continues to deliver his same amount of goodness. One comment though, he drew the Enforcers better than anyone I have ever seen. I love how his art can be so reminiscent of the 60s/70s, but at the same time, look just as modern as most comics.

Our story opens with Cranston telling us how much he likes his lifestyle, and how much Daredevil’s life sucks. Pretty good dichotomy, but unfortunately for Cranston, we know that won’t last. We then move on the Enforcers/Hood’s gang fight scene, well written, and as I mentioned before, well drawn. It is great to see the Enforcers back in comics. I don’t know how long it has been since I have seen them, but despite being somewhat cheesy, they have always been an interesting group. Then we have Daredevil enter the scene, and of course Daredevil accomplishes the opposite of what he set out to do.

After Daredevil finally digs himself out of the rubble, he returns home to a surprise, not just for himself, but the reader. Foggy (along with some help from Lily) is actually able to get Milla out on bail. This was a bit unexpected for me, but when Foggy explains how it happened, it made sense. And then we get introduced to the new character Elsa. She is certainly going to make things interesting. A state appointed nurse living in Daredevil’s house? This could make things really hard for Matt, especially in maintaining his already shaky secret identity, so I’m interested to see where this will go.

And finally, we cut back to Cranston, and we learn that Matt’s temporary happiness from the return of his wife is all part of the master plan. I have to admit, Brubaker can spin a pretty darn good mystery (*holds up current “Death of Captain America” storyline as proof*), I’m curious as to what this “master plan” is, and I am eager to see it come to fruition, though with only three issues left in this arc, I’m wondering if it will expand into the next arc as well. Time will only tell I suppose.
