Daredevil #12

Daredevil #12 continues the "Dark Art" story arc bringing the Man Without Fear face-to-face with the artistic serial killer whose name writer Charles Soule can't decide on. Known as either Vincent van Gore or the Muse, the killer escapes Daredevil with a little sleight-of-hand forcing the hero to go searching for help to catch the killer.

Because apparently everything in Marvel Comics has to be tied to Inhumans now (thanks Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.), the storyline gets a bit off-track with Daredevil going hat-in-hand to New Attilan to ask Medusa for her help in tracking down the killer. When denied their assistance (admittedly for no reason), Daredevil picks a fight with Karnak which (not surprisingly) does absolutely nothing to help his case.

For all but those who think Inhumans are the best thing ever, Daredevil #12 proves to be a detour best forgotten as no part of the overall story of tracking down the killer (whatever his name is) will be missed by completely ignoring this issue. Pass.
