Part of the growing Dantastic Empire

Daredevil, Volume 6

Daredevil, Volume 6 - Mark Waid, Chris Samnee, Javier Rodriguez, Matteo Scalera 28 - An asshole that used to torment Matt when he was a kid shows up looking for representation in a false arrest case.

Yeah, Mark Waid may not write a Hulk that I'm a huge fan of but he writes the shit out of Daredevil. I liked that Hackett had a different view of things when he and Matt were growing up. The ending was a shocker.

29 - It turns out the Sons of the Serpent have infested the legal system and want Hackett dead. Can Daredevil keep him alive long enough to get him to a hospital?

Pretty slick. I chuckled a little when Daredevil said "What am I, blind?"

30 - Kirsten McDuffie fills in for Foggy. Oh and an alien shows up in Matt's office looking for asylum on earth with the Silver Surfer on his trail!

It's simply amazing how Mark Waid can bounce Matt back and forth between street level crime and super hero stuff and make it all feel perfectly natural. Daredevil in control of the Silver Surfer's board was pretty bad ass.

Indestructible Hulk #9 - Bruce Banner and his lawyer, Daredevil, track down a stolen super weapon!

Daredevil and the Hulk seem mismatched at first but Hornhead knows how to handle the Hulk. Let's see how they handle Baron Zemo with an ultrasound cannon.

Indestructible Hulk #10 - Baron Zemo and HYDRA vs. The Hulk and Daredevil!

This was actually kind of a yawn, despite the carnage, until the Hulk went berserk and Daredevil had to control him. A Hulk in a China Shop indeed.

Closing Thoughts: Hulk issues aside, this was another kick ass Daredevil volume. The team-up with the Silver Surfer was one of my favorite moments of the series so far. Four out of five stars.
