Comics Rant: Daredevil #4

Daredevil #4
Written by Charles Soule
Drawn by Ron Garney & Goran Sudzuka
Colored by Matt Milla

With all the praise the Netflix show has been getting it's safe to say that Marvel wanted that darker tone to be added to the comics. You know, like those people who like the show will transition to the comic book. Good fucking luck with that. That almost never happens but hey you can't blame them for trying. So Daredevil is working with Steve Rodgers, the former Captain America to stop a group of morons who make and sell bombs on the black market from blowing up their lab in an occupied building in Brooklyn. All while paying a sky high price for rent no doubt. I mean it is Brooklyn.

To make matters worse, Tenfingers is still
growing his Church. I'm starting to wonder if Tenfingers doesn't have to pay taxes, seeing as how they don't get taxed here in the good ol' U.S. of A. Blindspot, who's Daredevil's new sidekick, or apprentice, if you will, goes to see his mom who is getting busy with Tenfingers. That's got to be freaky shit going down in the bedroom. Hell, she's got eight fingers on each hand now! What type of super kinky shit are Tenfingers and Blindspot's mom getting into? Shit, maybe I don't really want to know.

Blindspot tells his mom that Tenfingers is a bad guy but she won't listen to him. She's all like "Tenfingers is the that shit! Also he's not just a carbon copy of the Mandarin!" That's totally what she said. Don't believe me? Go read Daredevil #4 and get back to me. But in total moron fashion Blindspot reveals his secret identity to his mom so, yeah, that makes her want to kill him. So much for her getting a great Mother's Day card.

There was an awesome scene in this issue when Daredevil finds the bomb that's rigged to blow. Since Daredevil is blind he can't read the timer and can't even have Captain America walk him through the proper way to disconnect the wires to it. So what does the Man Without Fear do? He runs out of the apartment to quickly capture one of the morons who's selling said bombs to disarm it before DD shoves his teeth down his throat. Now that's how you play the role of a Marvel hero.... circa the 1990's. DD has a bro moment with Steve Rodgers and then the Hand goes to attack the church of Tenfingers. Good story and action, but yet again, for those who've never read it, feels like a retread of Chichester & McDaniel. But a fun story nonetheless.
