I dont want to nitpick. Quesada is starting a fine story that involves secrets from Matt Murdocks past. It also has a character with ovarian cancer. My mother died from that in 1995.

Daredevil fans would be forgiven for feeling some disappointment with this miniseries so far, as after being treated to a great DD mini in the shape of Gaydos and Hines Daredevil: Redemption, this pales in comparison.
