Daredevil: Dark Nights #1


Daredevil; Dark Knights is a collection of stories about Daredevil that we have not seen or heard yet. The first storyline is called Angels Unaware and issue #1 is titled Whiteout.  It is written and drawn by Lee Weeks and colored by Lee Loughridge.  I know this series is only supposed to be an eight issue run, but if all the writing is as good as this first issue, I would hope they make more than eight.

Issue #1 starts with Daredevil passed out in the snow, hence the title "Whiteout".  Anyway, the next pages tells us how Matt ended up face-up in the snow. It turns out that Matt was found unconscious in the snow and was brought to a hospital.  There we realize he has amnesia and doesn't know who he is.

While he is sedated, a nurse on duty is determined to find out who he is and recruits another nurse to open the briefcase that was by his body.  What they find next shocks them.  They now know that their John Doe is none other than the Daredevil.  At this moment, Matt awakens and remembers why he was there.  What was Daredevil doing out in a blizzard?  Well, true believers, you need to get the issue to figure that out.

I give this issue a perfect rating of 10 out of 10.  Until next time, Happy Reading!
