Look what you've done to him, Mark Waid and Chris Samnee! Look what you've done to Daredevil in this issue published by Marvel Comics, in February, 2014! I ask you, did you have to create such an amazing series; our hero was actually forced to drown himself in a pool of Miley Cyrus' tears! Oh dear. What a way to go!

To QUOTE Ulysses S. Grant: 'In every battle there comes a time when both sides consider themselves beaten, then he who continues the attack wins'.

In this issue of 'Daredevil', entitled 'Previously in Daredevil', the visually impaired wonder himself, Matt Murdock, finds himself in some really deep sh*t!

Yes. That is correct, my friends. I did use a rude word to describe our hero's current predicament. You see, when Matt gets called to Foggy Nelsons bedside, suddenly, three Sons' of a Serpent stooges then force him to defend a fellow serpent in a court of law, or else they'd make his life and Foggy's life a living hell.

Thankfully, though, with a little help from DD's old girl-pal, Electra, eventually things do appear to be looking on the up and up, until Matt and Kirsten get ready to show justice a brand new face.

His. Hint-hint!

The very moment I finished reading this issue of 'Daredevil', I carefully put it down upon the coffee table by the side of my chair, and then leaped out of it whilst yelping...

'My God! That was f*cking fantastic!'.

And do you want to know why I thought it was f*cking fantastic? Because it was f*cking fantastic! That's why!

Now the way I see it, both Mark and Chris have once again utilized the two concepts of suspense and intrigue, before integrating these notions into a great-great story-line that deals with a blackmail-plot where our hero has no place to go.

Honestly. I got a right kick out of trying to figure out how Matt was going get himself out of this terrible situation. Musing from time to time in that bumbling way I usually do. And as for Daredevils amazing interaction with Elektra, as well as the way this tale ended... err... no. No comment

I won't go there methinks. I wouldn't want to spoil your enjoyment by describing how this comic book ends. Tut-tut-tut! That would be f*cking rude of me. Wouldn't it?

I suppose the only slight gripe I have with this issue would be its initial premise. I mean, why would the Son's of the Serpent force Matt to defend one of their own in the law courts, when it has been previously stated they have members hidden throughout the judicial system? Doesn't make any sense, does it?

But apart from that, though, this comic was faultless. Faultless.

Both musically and emotionally I'd say the following song -- as sung by 'Vic Reeves and the Wonder Stuff' -- would perfectly sum up how I initially felt about this tale once I actually sat down and read it.

Yes. It made me feel 'dizzy' with excitement.  

The only thing I can compare this amazing issue to, my friends, would have to be those darn explosive firework displays you can see on TV.

Well, let's face it. What else is there that's both legal and dynamic to witness within the confines of your own home! Surely not a paid-prostitute!

Oh, dear. I've arrived at this damn section again. And once more my brain has gone into a spin, and I cannot seem to find the words to convey how this issue of 'Daredevil' touched me.

What more can I say about it, eh? That it was 'f*cking fantastic'! Nah! I've done that already. And by this stage of my musings this expression could start to get a bit repetitive by default.

Wait a minute! I have an idea! Why don't I show you how I feel about this comic in illustrative dance?  That might work.

Hmmm! On second thoughts that's a blinking silly idea. I don't have the right nose for dancing. Plus my hands and feet don't seem to synchronize properly while I'm breathing either.

Still. In a round about manner my own flaccid nature could inadvertently explain away why I can't conclude on Mark's and Chris' brilliant efforts. Because without putting too finer point on it, this arduous escapade was fuuucccc... no.

Nuff said. To be continued next time round...
