Daredevil #12

Remember that time Matt Murdock tricked the woman he loved into killing him so he could go fight a literal demon in Hell. I know you've got a martyr complex, Daredevil, but yeesh. I didn't expect to be comparing an issue of Daredevil to Star Trek V: The Final Frontier but that's where we're going. Culminating the 12 issue arc of Daredevil and Elektra's attempts to take down the Hand, we get Matt sitting in front of a cave contemplating suicide so to set up a Daredevil vs. Devil fight in Hell. Get it? (Who at Marvel thought this was a good idea?)

Oh, Daredevil. You've jumped the shark. There are some nice moments here in Matt's narration of seeing the woman Elektra has grown into, before, you know, making her stab him with a Sai in a horrific reminder of her death at the hands of Bullseye. Daredevil is dead, but he leaves another to continue his work in the world while he talks with his dad in Hell (um, okay) and sets off on a new adventure.
