+ While hospitalized, Dakota is relatively okay. Glad to see Brubaker didn't completely remove this entertaining character from the series.
+ While a tad rushed, the pieces of the puzzle all came together for a satisfying conclusion to this murder mystery.
+ Loved the opening fight scene. Usually, Daredevil is shown just taking everyone out. I liked how this showed the limitations of his powers in this environment and how he was smart enough to get out when he was in over his head.
+ Also loved how Matt tracked down Dakota's shooter. Another great use of his powers that doesn't fall into the unbelievable category that they sometimes get shown as.
- Conclusion to this storyline felt rushed. Would have benefitted from an extra issue or two, something I've rarely had the chance to say about Brubaker's decompressed and stretched out Daredevil run.
- The mystery serial killer, whom was talked about on end, was never seen and ended up being just a random thug being protected by some crooked anti-terrorist cops. Didn't expect Bullseye or anything, but he could have at least been shown on panel or being taken off to jail instead of us being promised he's going to be arrested.
- All they had was that damn dirty ape cover. Who's bright idea was it to print those abominations?
- Rucka's last co-written issue.
Verdict - Check It. While I loved this arc, this conclusion was just too rushed for my liking. With Lady Bullseye coming in next issue, it doesn't look like any follow up or epilogue is coming either. However, still a solid read that I doubt anyone will be upset with buying either.
