Daredevil #13

After Muse attacks the courthouse and takes a judge hostage, Blindspot follows the villain into the sewers where Muse adds the judge to his collection of a councilwoman and two police officers (all of whom he blames for "conspiring" to shut down public access to his works of art). With Daredevil far from the action the comic is presented through the young hero's perspective who does his best left to his own devices. Blindspot does manage to save the hostages and stymie the villain... at least for awhile.

The latest volume of Daredevil made several changes to the character. Returning Dardevil to New York, to work as a prosecutor for the first time, the comic also introduced Blindspot as the Man Without Fear's protege. Cut-off from Blindspot and unable to offer the young hero anything more than a single piece of advice (Don't Die. Don't Let Anyone Else Die), Blindspot is left to fend for himself against a mass murder with delusions of a promising art career. The end of this issue suggests a tragic end for this arc and for the young hero. We will just have to wait and see whether Blindspot can surprise us one more time. Worth a look.
