Daredevil #9

The follow-up to last month's issue of Matt Murdock's gambling adventures in Macau features a Far East team-up between Daredevil and Spider-Man. Given his trust of Daredevil (because of the unexplained memory wipe Daredevil performed on everyone who knew his secret identity which Spider-Man can sense but not explain), Spidey does have some concerns about what his fellow vigilante is after in Macau and Hong Kong. However, that doesn't stop the fun the two have together performing a heist and then chasing the plunder Daredevil has spent a considerable amount of effort to retrieve.

Even if there is something missing in the camaraderie of the two heroes given Spidey's hazy memories of their past, the pair are quite entertaining together on the printed page kicking some series ass. And then there's the Web-Head basically blackmailing Daredevil to explain himself before Spidey hands over the prize.

Now that we know what Daredevil was after, let's see just how he plans to use it. Worth a look.
