I’ve never been a big fan of Klaw. So when he was chosen as the first “big” villain to show up in the latest volume of Daredevil I certainly wasn’t expecting much. Although it’s not a great issue, writer Mark Waid gives me more than I expected in a solid story that pits Daredevil against the Master of Sound.
The issue opens with Daredevil captured by Klaw who has been fractured into separate pieces or “soundshadows” who are hoping to restore themselves into a solid form. Although the complexity of Daredevil’s confinement isn’t satisfactorily explained, his escape and defeat of Klaw on the streets of New York works quite well.
The real fun of this issue, however, comes in the conversations between Matt Murdock and Foggy Nelson as the figure out a way for their client to win his case, talk with some attractive women at a local watering hole (careful, they might be super-villains), and decide the new direction of their law practice. Worth a look.
