Daredevil #511

Events of Shadowland seem to be on hold here as this issue catches up with the "little people" in Matt Murdock's life. Private eye Dakota North talks with Detective Kurtz before setting out to save Becky Blake from the rioters and hysteria. Matt Murdock's former bosom buddy Foggy Nelson works his way into the heart of Shadowland (with all the stealth he's known to possess over the years?) in a final attempt to save his friend from the madness that has taken him and is now engulfing all of Hell's Kitchen.

How dumb is Shadowland? The ridiculousness of Foggy Nelson getting through the riots, the cops, the ninja and into the belly of the beast (so to speak) doesn't even rank on the most absurd moments of this storyline. For a Shadowland comic this one's not bad, but then again that's a pretty low standard. Here where given a Daredevil comic where Daredevil (even a demon-infested one) makes only a token appearance. Pass.
