A Year of Cool Comic Book Moments – Day 122
Here is the latest cool comic book moment in our year-long look at one cool comic book moment a day (in no particular order whatsoever)! Here‘s the archive of the moments posted so far!
Today we continue our look at what is most likely the greatest Daredevil story ever told, Born Again, by Frank Miller and David Mazzucchelli. It might last longer than a week, as there are a lot of cool moments, and they just keep coming with greater frequency as the series continues its slow build towards the ending.
As we left Daredevil #232, Matt and Karen were reunited and Karen was last seen sleeping in the flop she and Matt were sharing. She was sleeping with the fake Daredevil costume worn by the killer in Daredevil #231.
Meanwhile, we meet Nuke, a government super soldier who takes various pills for various effects. The red pill increases his adrenaline, the white pills bring him down from the red pills and the blue pills make him calm in between missions.
Kingpin has arranged, through government connections, to hire Nuke to attack Hell’s Kitchen, in an attempt to draw Daredevil out of hiding (as this scene begins, Matt has just seen Ben Urich and others recovering from the events of last issue, and Matt notes that while he is sorry for not being able to help Ben, but he is not yet ready to go public – well, things change quickly)…
That last page is one of the most iconic Daredevil drawings ever.
