O'Neil's issues seem to be contrived, and this is no different. A random hijacking on an airline leads to a crash with three survivors. A hick hitman meeting his family in the swamps of Jersey, DD's girlfriend, and a corrupt scientist utilizing Mr. Fear's fear gas. This leads to a ridiculous swamp chase with the Widow and DD facing down a strange family of criminals and quickly dispatching them. There's even a funny little moral about how the scientist was afraid without the gas. It's all quite by the numbers and really, it doesn't make me want to track down Daredevil back issues. Or were these all fill-ins and that's why they have this weird feel to them?
The art by David Mazzucchelli is of course very reminiscent of Frank Miller. I don't like his take on Black Widow at all, she looks much better with longer hair. Foggy Nelson also tends to look a bit ridiculous, especially when he's sporting a moustache.
