Throwback Thursday: Daredevil 200

"Redemption" story by Danny O'Neil art by William Johnson and cover by John Byrne.
After a run in with the ninja clan "The Hand" and hitman Bullseye in Japan in pervious issues Matt Murdock returns to New York with a broken arm and hell bent on hunting down Bullseye who also has returned and has some kind of "psyhic link" with Daredevil after the events in Japan. Daredevil jumps right into training, dealing with the death of his love Elektra and looking for Bullseye the man who killed her.Black Widow stops by to try to talk Matt down cause he's determined to put Bullseye "down" for good.
While searching for Bullseye Matt has a flashback to a time when he was a kid that he forgot about, when he found out his dad had taking a gig as a wrestler with the name "Red Devil".The sequence with his dad talking to young Matt Murdock was very touching.The big battle with Bullseye was well done and Daredevil does redeem himself. ...spoilers. If you get a chance pick this back issue up and you don't have to know Daredevil's whole history to understand and enjoy this story.
Until next time stay geeky and hungry my friends.
