Daredevil: Dark Nights

The first three-issue arc of the new eight-issue anthology series Daredevil: Dark Nights continues here with Daredevil trying to brave a snowstorm to retrieve a heart from a downed medical chopper with precious cargo: a heart necessary to save the life of a young girl.

Although the problematic amnesia element from the first issue is gone there's not real reason as to why Daredevil finally has his full memory restored. We're also forced to read through several pages of the young girl's father making dangerous deals for his daughter's only hope with someone dangerous who gives him hope but will no doubt put both Daredevil and the heart in danger but hopefully save his daughter. (It's dangerous, and the heart's her only hope, go it?)

That said, Lee Weeks art is once again solid but his writing is only slightly improved over the first issue although it's still clunky and hamfisted at times (especially involving danger or hope). For fans.
