Daredevil #1

Matt Murdock is dead to the world as Daredevil (who no one remembers is Matt Murdock) and Elektra prepare to leave New York and take their fight to the Hand. Before leaving the city, however, Daredevil spends one final night fighting crime with Spider-Man and tying up various loose ends. There's not as much Daredevil/Spidey interaction as I would have liked here (especially between two men who have made deals with devils to hide their secret identities), but the pairing still works.

The rest of the issue, including Daredevil being interviewed by someone else in the near (far?) future and Elektra kicking Stick's ass for fun, sets up the challenges of taking the devil out of Hell's Kitchen. Oh, and also an old acquaintance of Matt's appears with bizarre unexplained powers and a knowledge of his secret, so, um. yeah, there's that too.
