Daredevil’s search for the truth leads him out of the country, on a swashbuckling noir adventure that hasn’t been seen in the pages of DD for years! But is this the other DD, or the original?

Plus: a special episode focusing on Daredevil’s recently deceased best friend, Foggy Nelson. Did we really know all there is to know about Foggy? What remains hidden in the life of this man, that could still affect Matt Murdock’s fate to this day? Collects Daredevil #88-93.

In this second installment of Ed Brubaker’s run on “Daredevil” (issues #88-93) the story settles into a more conventional mode. Free from prison, Matt Murdoch tours Europe, ninja-style, to find the identity of his recent tormentor, and runs afoul of a trio of baddies before finally piecing together whodunnit. At the end of the book, he has his life back and looks set for more-or-less business-as-usual superhero stories (although I’m sure Brubaker’s future plotlines will be appropriately grim and dark…)

The return to normal may seem like a bit of a letdown, but considering how far back DD’s legal problems stretch — a couple of years, real-world time — even though it’s over, the recent story arc was quite an accomplishment. The “out” part of “Inside And Out” felt anticlimactic, but it’s still a darn good read. Plus, what a great scene when DD decks a seemingly unstoppable tough guy (Tombstone) by smacking him across the jaw with a sledgehammer! Nice touch of realism there, Ed!
