Weekend Comic Book Update (for 29 January 2012)
Wolverine and Crossbones face off over a hammer.
Someone betrays the Avengers.
Valkyrie gets a second chance at immortality.
Sin finds a new ally....or does she?
The art was great, very beautifully done and the flow was nice. In particular I loved the image of Wolverine as he guts Crossbones. There's nothing more pleasurable than when Logan can cut loose (pun intended) and be an animal. The exchange between him and Crossbones over whether a healing factor makes one lazy or whether guys who have to brag about their not having powers was fun.
The betrayal should have been expected by the Avengers, in my opinion. After all, the one doing it is someone you probably shouldn't have trusted in the first place.
Black Cat is arrested for the theft of a scientist's holographic projector.
Spider-man is convinced she's innocent, so he contacts Daredevil to give him some legal advice.
I like the artwork. A little rough on facial features, but her Spider-man is very expressive. The overall story had the element of fun that's always made Spider-man a title to read, while keeping Peter Parker's bad luck a component of the story.
The team-up betwen Daredevil and Spider-man is one I find enjoyable as well. Including Spidey's lack of tact when trying to contact Daredevil while in his (barely kept) secret identity! Their little pieces of friendship, the competitiveness (who else would race from the top of the Chrysler building to the ground in a game of super-hero chicken?) and their playoff of abilities made the issue enjoyable.
Black Cat attacked Daredevil and Spider-man, thinking it was Spidey who turned her in.
Spider-man realizes he's being framed as well.
So together with Daredevil, they go in search of the real thief.
Remember what I said above about the relationship between Spider-man and Daredevil? It's about to get VERY complicated.
We find out who framed who, what their ultimate goal is, and that not everybody is on the up and up on this adventure.
Foggy has his own problem to deal with when, due to ground settling at several cemeteries, he's forced to exhume the ground where Matt's father, Jack Murdock, is current buried and makes a discovery that won't sit well with Matt.
Kano's art is again on point. The story flowed well here for another well done issue of Daredevil.
