Silver Surfer, Daredevil rides the waves, Alien Hobos and lies,lies,lies! This books stands out as the right way to do a super hero comic. I love everything about this book. From the writing to the art right on down to the damn colors and letters. In what's done as a one and done (but not leaving the big picture of the over all story arc) DD has a team up going on in this issue.
The story starts off with former flame of the man without fear Kirsten McDuffie taking over for Foggy at the law offices of Nelson and Murdock. But before Matt can be all like "Don't you know how all my girlfriends end up!!!!" speech they get interrupted. By an alien (not an illegal one) in his private office.
Turns out the aliens name is Ru'ach. ( His words,not mine.) He's got some info about the end of our Universe and needs Matt's help to contact The Avengers (Or Avenger$ to Disney.) Just then The Silver Surfer shows up, which in my opinion we need to see more of him on Earth in the regular Marvel U. But pay no mind to what I want, I still want Ben Reilly to be Spider-Man. (Suck it Doc Ock!)
Thanks to Silver Surfer we and DD learn that Ru'ach is a lying goober. He can mess with peoples perceptions to make you believe him and his lies. He doesn't want the Avengers to help save the universe, he wants to ambush them so he can take it over. So Daredevil and the Silver Surfer in true Marvel fashion have a team up. I totally felt where Daredevil was coming from when he was having a blast riding around on the Silver Surfer's board. Must be just like Long boarding. At the end the bad guy is beaten but not before he takes a pound of flesh from Matt. He tells Matt this Kirsten will never love him. Was it a lie? Or was Ru'ach just telling Matt what is to come at some point in the future? Guess we'll just have to keep reading to find out. I know I will.
