I wasn’t thrilled with writer Mark Waid‘s choice of the Mole Man for this two-issue arc, but the second half pays off as Daredevil is able to survive being eaten some sort of giant underground monster and discover why the villain is robbing the graves of a local cemetery, including that of Matt Murdock’s father.
Daredevil is able to take down the villain, whose purpose is far more pathetic than dangerous, but with the loss of his father’s remains now scattered among the bones of many Daredevil has to admit no one wins here.
Although the Black Cat doesn’t appear in this issue we also get a wrap-up to her (far too) short romantic tryst with Daredevil as she chooses not steal the data drive the lawyer has been keeping in a secret safe in his office. Although I understand why the character is moving on, I’m sad to see her go so soon, just as things were getting interesting. Worth a look.
