Daredevil's having a tough week. A flu bug has rendered his radar power useless, a Yakuza gang is trying to reclaim their power in Hell's Kitchen, and there's a murder to be solved. Now, he has to deal with a visitor from his time in prison-Carlos LaMuerto, a.k.a. the Black Tarantula. Carlos has been released, and he's looking to Matt Murdock for some help in setting up a new life on the outside. Will Murdock and LaMuerto end up as allies, or foes? Will Black Tarantula really go straight, or will his inner demons lure him back to his crime-lord past?

    This is a great issue, hands down. You, honestly, can't go wrong picking this up. There's no back story or current events you need to know from the main series to read this. It's an excellently crafted doneinone story and one of the best from Brubaker's run on Daredevil to date. Read Full Review

    It's always nice to catch a glimpse of the quieter days in Matt Murdock's life, especially because even they aren't all that quiet. Like most of Marvel's annual issues, this book likely won't have any impact on the ongoing series, but fans of the character will be reasonably pleased with the result. Read Full Review

    So know what youre getting into. If you just want a good superhero read that might end up being the springboard to a new book, or might just disappear altogether, give this one a read. Looking for a little Hornhead? Pass it on by, and give Tarantula a try if he ever lands his own title. Read Full Review

    I consider myself an avid Daredevil fan, and it's hard for me to admit that this annual was lousy. I can't imagine anyone except Black Tarantula enthusiasts (all three of you) would enjoy it. And even then, with a price point of four bucks, you still wouldn't get much out of it. Read Full Review
