Take Daredevil and Spiderman, add a dash of Yakuza and what do you get? One awesome fight sequence, that’s what! I always love it when these guys team up, because it always means that someone’s butt is going to be beaten to a pulp. In Daredevil 60 (Marvel Knights), Daredevil gets some reinforcements from his super-hero friends after being badly beaten.
The Yakuza have been selling some sort of synthetic genetic drug that gives people super-powers. So Daredevil teams up with Iron Fist, Luke Cage and Spider-Man so they can beat them into last century. The focus, however, is mostly on Daredevil and Spiderman. The artwork is very realistic, to the point that they may even have been photographs. That doesn’t matter though, because the comic looks amazing. Nothing looks forced of artificial.
Daredevil 60 (second series) is part of what is called “The King of Hell’s Kitchen”, and it’s part 5 of 5. From Brian Michael Bendis and part of an award winning series, it is some great stuff. The graphic novel version is Daredevil Vol. 9: King of Hell’s Kitchen. It is written like a crime drama, as a gritty comic series should be. If you have the extra time and cash, you really should add this to your book shelf. It is too good to pass up.
