This issue gifts us with a hilarious look at Matt not being able to embellish in his memoir due to Foggy & Kirsten intervention. We see the retelling of his true first meeting with Hawkeye as well as learning how Matt will overact whenever he has to improvise. We then enter new client George Smith, he wants to sue a new stunts expert using his former name “Stunt-Master”. Waid delivers a good tale of the times forgetting a former Evel Knievel type showman and his arrogant replacement. Matt isn’t sure there is much he can do as things are legal with George having signed his rights away but things get interesting once the new Stunt-Master starts calling himself “The Man Without Fear”. Matt doesn’t bite at first but once George takes a turn for the worst, Daredevil brings them horns out.
I really like Samnee’s art on this book as well. He captures Matt’s radar in his own unique style as well as making the background and vigilante action feel very motion picture-ish as you read along. It was also good to see Matt and Kirsten back on their lawyer shit. I’m looking forward to Daredevil having to defend his title of Man Without Fear this arc.
