Daredevil #22

Chip Zdarsky’s Daredevil has been one of the best ongoing comic books on the market today. Just as you don’t think things could get more captivating Zdarsky  does just that with the decisions Matt Murdock has made. That was never more true then with Matt’s decision to, as Daredevil, to turn himself in for killing someone when he was trying to stop a crime while still recovering from his near-death injuries. Adding in the difference from the last time Matt went to prison is the fact that he is going to be convicted as Daredevil, not Matt Murdock. This development could turn out to have large ramifications for the entire superhero community. Let’s see if that is the case with Daredevil #22.

Synopsis: After Daredevil gets his mugshot taken by the NYPD, Foggy Nelson reminds all the police that D.A. Hochberg said that Daredevil is the one being place on trial so his secret identity is allowed to stay intact.

As the police take Daredevil out of the precinct a horde of news outlets are there to document all of this.

Later, at an NYPD press conference, DA Hochberg talks about and answers questions about why Daredevil is being placed on trial and not his secret identity. Mayor Wilson Fisk speaks up to reaffirm his position of there being no difference between “superheroes” and “super villains,” promising to bring Daredevil to justice. One of the reporters asks if this is part of Mayor Fisk’s plan for re-election. Mayor Fisk walks out without answering the question.

Wesley asks Mayor Fisk if he should reintroduce the Vigilante Bill. Mayor Fisk says not yet as they need to use this trial for Daredevil as an opportunity to regain control.

At a court room Foggy Nelson is able to convince the judge to not place Daredevil in prison during the trial.

Daredevil thanks Foggy for his help and then leaves to let Foggy figure out a strategy for what is next.

Later that night, Daredevil stops some gang trying to sell some weapons. Iron Man shows up, immediately destroys the weapons and tells Daredevil he has already called the cops.

Over at a church Mayor Fisk meets up with Typhoid Mary, who has the church’s priest on a leash. Typhoid Mary talks about how she knows that Mayor Fisk had her placed in the church. She then goes on to talk about their equal love for control and that she’ll be in contact about how they can help each other.

Daredevil #22

Over at Tony Stark’s New York City apartment, Tony tries to casually talk about Daredevil’s decision to be tried in his superhero identity. Daredevil says he is doing it because it is the right thing.

Tony then asks Daredevil why he called him. Daredevil says that the Stromwyns are working with a developer to buy 90% of Hell’s Kitchen and wants Tony to submit a counter-offer. Tony says this will lead him to lose his fortune as Daredevil wants him to sell the land back to Hell’s Kitchen residents. Daredevil says it is the right thing to do because the people need it and Tony can do more for them then just save the world. Tony offers to help Daredevil out by giving his equipment an upgrade.

Over at his office Mayor Fisk calls Izzy Libris to set up a meeting for how they can work together moving forward. After Izzy agrees, Mayor Fisk tells Wesley to get him his investigators.

Later, Daredevil goes to Foggy’s office to check on how things are going. Matt takes off his mask as Foggy  tells his friend that he needs to focus on his case and not being a superhero all the time. Foggy goes on to say he wants to focus their side on how Matt didn’t intend to kill anyone.

Matt senses someone coming to the office and puts his mask back on. Daredevil is shocked when Kirsten McDuffie enters Foggy’s office. End of issue.

The Good: Chip Zdarsky has a knack for making a compelling tale around Matt Murdock fighting with his back to a corner. Daredevil #22 is an example as Matt Murdock places himself in the middle of trial that has large ramifications. And if that wasn’t enough Matt also continues to worry about what will happen to Hell’s Kitchen.

How Zdarsky juggles all of these plotlines for Matt Murdock is the most fascinating aspect. Because even when Matt isn’t in a scene everything that happens progresses where his overall story is going. There are so many factors to what is going on in Hell’s Kitchen that you understand why Matt doesn’t have his full attention on his trial as Daredevil. It both shows a strength to his character while also making you question if Matt is stretching himself so much that he is leading to his own breaking point.

That is best exemplified by how Matt interacts with Foggy Nelson throughout Daredevil #22. While Matt has full trust in Foggy being the best person to defend Daredevil he still can’t stop being a lawyer. Even when he is exhausted by the end of the night he wants to make sure he gives his input no matter how much trust there is.

During all of these scenes Zdarsky does a fantastic job putting over why Foggy is a great lawyer. We see that through the pride that Matt has in Foggy when he convinced the judge to let Daredevil stay free during the trial period. Adding in a person from their law school days that Foggy gains this win from made things sweeter. This also worked to get over for anyone who did not know that Foggy is one of the best in the business.

The reason he calls Matt out in the final scene of Daredevil #22 is because he is taking this case as seriously as any he has ever worked on. Seeing how exhausted Matt understandably made Foggy angry because he knows his best friend has his mind in a hundred different places at once. That won’t help them because for Foggy to win or get Daredevil a lenient sentence then he’ll need Matt’s full cooperation.

Which makes bringing in Kirsten McDuffie back into the fold such an intriguing prospect. This once again shows that Foggy knows that he can’t rely on Matt helping him out throughout this case. To make things work Foggy and Matt will need help and there is no better person to provide that help than Kirsten. Given their history Kirsten will be another character to watch as things progress in Daredevil’s case.

Through all of this Zdarsky also makes sure that the reader understands how much is at stake in this Daredevil case. Seeing all of the media attention this case is getting puts over how this has far reaching consequences depending on what the verdict is. Especially as the DA’s office continues to push the fact that the person on trial is Daredevil, not Matt Murdock.

Bringing in Mayor Fisk’s re-election campaign to coincide with this case was a great move. This provides greater motivation for why Wilson Fisk is putting so much of his attention to what is going on with Daredevil. Because not only will this impact his ongoing opposition of vigilantes but also can help him regain the control he has been losing through all the dealings with Stromwyns.

Daredevil #22

Which all brings us back to how important the political game for control of Hell’s Kitchen. Since Zdarsky started his run the Stromwyns have positioned themselves as the new rulers of Hell’s Kitchen. In the process they have also taken away the control Wilson Fisk had as mayor. Fisk looking to regain that control through partnerships with Izzy Libris and Typhoid Mary provide this storyline some intriguing sub-plots.

I’m especially interested in how Fisk and Typhoid Mary’s partnership turns out. Zdarsky does a very good job presenting Typhoid Mary as someone who will be a wild card in what is going in his Daredevil run. We saw that during the gang war and here in Daredevil #22 as she makes it clear to Fisk that their partnership will be on her terms.

The interaction between Daredevil and Iron Man was a nice change of pace while keeping it all centered around what is going on with Hell’s Kitchen. Through this interaction Zdarsky was able to provide an examination of the street-level and Avengers-level superheroes. Daredevil pointing out how he is always looking out for the people and that is what is motivating this meeting with Iron Man showed the difference between them.

At the same time, Zdarsky made sure not to present Tony Stark as an antagonist. Zdarsky was careful to write Tony’s dialogue coming from someone who sees how Daredevil is thinking in the short-term. Tony appropriately calls out Daredevil on how simple his plan of Tony purchasing 90% of Hell’s Kitchen land is without taking into account everything it would mean. It all furthers how big of a political game is being played for the heart and soul of Hell’s Kitchen even after the gang war finished.

Francesco Mobili does a very good job replicating Marco Checchetto’s style to maintain a consistency with the artwork readers have come to expect from this series. With Daredevil #22 being a dialogue heavy issue Mobili brought out the character emotions out well that matched what Zdarsky was writing. It was also good to see Mobili nailing the little details with Daredevil’s new costume as Matt is now using red wrappings around his arms and fists

The Bad: Nothing.

Overall: Chip Zdarsky knocks it out of the park again as Daredevil #22 shows why this series is one of the best comic books on the market. The narrative around Daredevil being placed on trial is given the weight it should have. Adding in the continued battle for control of Hell’s Kitchen makes this a multi-layered story that has your attention from beginning to end.

Whenever a new Daredevil issue comes out, I have been using this opening paragraph to tell everyone how much I love this book. I won’t do that this time. Nope, I will not tell you Daredevil is my favorite book in all of comics or that Chip Zdarsky is one of my favorite writers. I mean, I would sound like a broken record, right? I also think I’ve been a bit too pushy lately, so I won’t tell you that you’re a fool if this book isn’t on your pull list. I don’t know you, so that wouldn’t be right. What I am saying is, I’m just going to review this issue of Daredevil, my favorite book in comics right now, by one of my favorite writers, which everyone should be reading.

A lot has happened in this book lately. Hell’s Kitchen is a mess thanks to the Stromwyns, Typhoid Mary is back on the scene, Mayor Wilson Fisk hasn’t been himself, and Matt Murdock has turned himself in for murder. The last part is the big focus here, but Zdarsky weaves everything together, and that’s one of the things I love the most about this run.

The issue opens with Foggy and Matt downtown getting booked. I say Matt, but it’s Daredevil, and Chip does an excellent job of recapping and explaining how the legal system works in the MCU when masked heroes are involved. Secret identities remain secret, and while that makes sense for comic book reasons, not everyone is thrilled about it, especially Mayor Fisk. Zdarsky also uses the beginning to show that heightened hearing isn’t the most incredible power when it just lets you hear all the shade thrown your way.

After a fast-track preliminary hearing, Matt is out on bail (I kind of think the secret identity thing makes you a flight risk!), and while Foggy plans strategy, Daredevil is off to kick ass, take names and prepare for the worst.

While I never thought of Matt and Tony Stark being best friends, Matt needs a good guy who is filthy rich, and Tony fits the bill. In case Daredevil does go to jail (and I 100% think he will), Matt wants Tony to spend billions to keep the Stromwyns from buying up Hell’s Kitchen, and while that’s crazy, it’s so crazy it just may work! Actually, Matt guilts Tony into doing it, and while we leave it with an “I’ll think about it,” I think Tony is planning on getting it done.

Besides that, we get a bit of a rebirth for both Kingpin and Typhoid Mary, the promise of an Iron Daredevil suit I want to see now, and a cliffhanger that brings in a classic character to help Foggy get Matt off… in a legal way that is! It’s a clever twist in a story dealing a lot with Matt’s secret identity.

While Chip Zdarsky has used each issue to setup his overall story, this one was a bit more obvious. The big moments were “wait and see” stuff, and while they are pointing at a ton of awesome things, nothing hit here. I still liked everything we got, including Francesco Mobili’s art, but this wasn’t a “must-read” issue.

Final Thoughts:

Chip Zdarsky and Francesco Mobili give Daredevil fans a setup issue, and while some may need a breather after all the crazy shit that’s gone on in this book recently, it’s not “must-read” material. It’s “should-read” for sure, and I can’t wait to see what happens with Daredevil from here on out.

8.0/10

    Continues to hit all the right beats. Setting up just more fun and more epic stuff to look forward to. I know there are going to be a lot of complaints about Daredevil going to jail and how we have seen that before, but to me it feels different enough to warrant a lot of interest. Art remains impeccable, still one of the strongest titles not just from Marvel, but both the big 2.

    Great drama, plenty of good threads to go around but the best one was the chat with Tony. Zdarsky just keeps building. Mobili, Olazaba and Iacono did a great job too on art.

    The court case against Daredevil takes shape. Rather than prepare for that, Matt's setting his vigilante affairs in order. Fisk gets a few pages, too; his plotlines are slow, but they're still interesting. The scripting on this book remains fantastic and Francesco Mobili delivers some worthy, highly-detailed art.

    Another good issue, except the part about Daredevil being granted parole because they can't think of a reason to deny it? How about he might go back out on patrol and kill somebody else? Or - being a "masked man" - just decide to fade into the woodwork. Plot weaknesses like this in an otherwise strong series irritate me.

    Th issue where nothing happened but everything was happening. Lots of moving parts that all have potential. Definitely hope daredevil gets a suit from Tony at least for a little. Definitely a good issue but more setting up than getting to the goods.

    I'm still not happy about Matt going to jail again. The "Iron Devil" idea is just...no. Just no. On the positive side of things it's nice to see Typhoid Mary still hanging around and I'm still interested in seeing how Fisk handles things with the Stromwyn siblings.
