Shadowland: Part 2 last edited by Darkside_of_the_Sun on 08/25/19 04:12AM View full history

SHADOWLAND TIE-IN!

As Daredevil's Shadowland stronghold in Hell's Kitchen grows, more heroes step forward to try to bring The Man Without Fear back to his senses. But any foe of Daredevil knows he is not a man easily stopped. The battle for New York continues!

Elektra and Master Izo infiltrate the Fortress of the Hand and eavesdrop on a meeting of the Snakeroot. The Snakeroot members discuss the potential of the zugaikotsu warrior to be summoned, but they doubt the warrior will be a match for “whom they serve”. They then receive a report from White Tiger who tells them Daredevil has “made himself a killer”, which pleases them because they now have “fertile soil for the black flower to take root”. Upon hearing this, Master Izo tells Elektra they must return to New York immediately. The Snakeroot members tell White Tiger they must now sever Matt Murdock’s ties to his old life and she says it is already underway. Elektra and Master Izo flee the Fortress of the Hand. Before Izo sacrifices himself by cutting a log bridge full of Hand ninjas, he tells Elektra to find Murdock and to do what she knows she has to do.

Back in Hell’s Kitchen, Dakota North defends herself and an unconscious Foggy Nelson from the Hand hit squad White Tiger sent last issue. She is eventually overtaken and just as she is about to be killed, Luke Cage and Iron Fist appear and defeat the hit squad. Iron Fist wonders out loud if the ninjas were sent by Murdock, and Nelson says he wouldn’t have sent them because they are all friends. Cage and Iron Fist resolve to talk to Murdock personally.

In Shadowland, Typhoid Mary approaches Daredevil and offers her allegiance. She assures Daredevil that she is in control of her personalities and her powers. Daredevil is then told that a delegation of superheroes has appeared at Shadowland’s gate. He tells a guard to put Typhoid Mary in a tower under observation and leaves to meet with the delegation. Back at a NYPD safehouse, Foggy wishes he was with the delegation and Dakota wants to find out who sent the ninjas after them. As they discuss whether or not Murdock was the source, a large explosion rocks Shadowland.

There's good news....and bad news.... 0

And of course, I'm telling the bad news first. The bad news is, Daredevil's got a new follower, and it's an extremely powerful and unstable mutant in Typhoid Mary. The good news is, Elektra's on her way to kick some ass, so we know that this book is headed in the right direction. This was a great issue. We're getting a little bit more info on the whole Shadowland situation, piece by piece, and it's all gonna be marvelous when it comes together. The writing here is top notch. Diggle and Johnston ...

Daredevil #509 Shadowland 0

 That was surprisingly good. I've heard some pretty bad things about the Shadowland story so far, but this issue was actually good. The writing from Diggle and Johnson is great and they seem to know how to write all of these characters like they are supposed to be. The art by De La Torre is also really good and seems like it was painted, which it probably was. The art may not be for everyone, but if you liked Alex Maleev's painted work on Daredevil than you'll probably like this. As for the narr...

The Intervention Continues 0

The only real bad part about this issue is that it felt like it ended too quickly. I understand that Daredevil's main book is acting as prologue to the individual chapters of Shadowland, but I still would have liked a little more here. Just to nit pick briefly, I don't think that Elektra would really complain about the smell of a sewer. That felt a bit out of character for one of the steeliest and deadliest killers in the Marvel Universe. Otherwise, this is an enjoyable issue that helps push thi...
