Continuing to fill-in the events between the previous series set in San Fransisco and Matt Murdock‘s return to New York City as an Assistant District Attorney, Daredevil #18 brings back a classic villain with the return of the Purple Man. As told in flashbacks during Murdock’s confession, the Purple Man’s escape from prison and the arrival of two of the Purple Children on his door with a mind-controlled mob behind them springs Daredevil into action to seek out the remaining children and discover just what the Purple Man has in store for them.

When the latest volume of Daredevil launched you couldn’t help but notice some disconnect with the previous series where Matt Murdock was living in San Francisco with Kristen McDuffie and the entire world knew his identity as Daredevil. Daredevil #17 begins to explain what changed, how Matt Murdock returned to New York, and why no one seems to remember he likes to get horny, put on tights, swing from rooftops, and beat up criminals with billy clubs.

daredevil-2016-13-muse

After Muse attacks the courthouse and takes a judge hostage, Blindspot follows the villain into the sewers where Muse adds the judge to his collection of a councilwoman and two police officers (all of whom he blames for “conspiring” to shut down public access to his works of art). With Daredevil far from the action the comic is presented through the young hero’s perspective who does his best left to his own devices. Blindspot does manage to save the hostages and stymie the villain… at least for awhile.

daredevil-season-one-dvdThe First Season of Netflix’s Daredevil is collected here. Perhaps preferring views to keep watching the show on Netflix rather than shell out money for hard Blu-ray copies, the collection is noticeably light when compared to other television series. Only available on Blu-ray (no DVD), the collection includes no digital copies (as Netflix wants you to keep paying to stream the series) or any extras.

The first show in Marvel’s line of Netflix originals, Daredevil introduces us to defense attorney Matt Murdock (Charlie Cox) who, despite being blind, spends his free time fighting crime in the streets of Hell’s Kitchen. We also get Matt’s best bud Foggy (Elden Henson), their leggy secretary (Deborah Ann Woll), and the season’s big bad in the villainous Kingpin (Vincent D’Onofrio). As with the other shows which have followed the same format, the season does have its ups and downs, but it’s certainly more consistent that Marvel’s ABC properties (Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and Agent Carter).

Daredevil #12 continues the “Dark Art” story arc bringing the Man Without Fear face-to-face with the artistic serial killer whose name writer Charles Soule can’t decide on. Known as either Vincent van Gore or the Muse, the killer escapes Daredevil with a little sleight-of-hand forcing the hero to go searching for help to catch the killer.

“Dark Arts” continues as both Daredevil and Matt Murdock begin investigating the demonic painting made from the blood of hundreds of victims. In trouble at work for abandoning his post to help Blindspot, Murdock finds himself with a new assignment from the District Attorney – shut down the publicity of the painting which a greedy douche is using to line his own pockets. Although Murdock agrees with the concept of stopping the spread of the evil art, he is concerned with where his orders are coming from and begins to second guess his choice to join the D.A.’s office.

Daredevil #10 kicks off a new arc with Daredevil‘s protege Blindspot being lured in to an unusual murder scene which contains a wall-sized painting done in blood. Someone is obviously playing with the two heroes, but why? And what’s the broader significance of the painting itself, purposefully left for Daredevil and Blindspot to find?

The follow-up to last month’s issue of Matt Murdock‘s gambling adventures in Macau features a Far East team-up between Daredevil and Spider-Man. Given his trust of Daredevil (because of the unexplained memory wipe Daredevil performed on everyone who knew his secret identity which Spider-Man can sense but not explain), Spidey does have some concerns about what his fellow vigilante is after in Macau and Hong Kong. However, that doesn’t stop the fun the two have together performing a heist and then chasing the plunder Daredevil has spent a considerable amount of effort to retrieve.

Someone is screwing with Elektra and Daredevil. Learning the fact that Elektra is searching for a missing daughter that might be his leads Matt Murdock to question everything. When the entire affair turns out to be a web of lies meant only to hurt Daredevil through Elektra it’s obvious we have a new (or perhaps old) villain in play.

For the first time since Matt Murdock reset reality to hide his dual identity, both the lawyer and Daredevil have run-ins with Elektra. Murdock’s evening with his ex in a dive bar goes far better than the vigilante’s as Elektra proceeds to hold nothing back while beating Daredevil bloody (unaware who is under the mask).
