Daredevil: Dark Nights #7

Daredevil and Misty Knight's adventures continue as their helicopter gets shot down miles from Cuba on their way to track down the kingpin whose men kidnapped Matt Murdock's latest client. Eventually the pair make it to land only to face new threats including the rocket-launcher-totting Carmen Averez and the kingpin's soldiers.

The quips and sexual tension between the two characters continue throughout the issue (as does Misty's disappointment about not having her way with the hero under the moonlight). There's plenty of action as well and an important reveal Misty's insight on their target which sets up next month's final issue of both the arc and the anthology.

There are some fun moments here, but the issue is really used to set-up the various conflicts in next month's finale. Although it hasn't been as good as Mark Waid's run on the regular title, I've enjoyed seeing other writers and artists play with the character over the past few months in these isolated tales. For fans.
