Daredevil #7

   The key mystery since Daredevil's latest relaunch is how he managed to put the genie (in other words, his secret identity) back in the bottle.

   We still don't know the answer (though we seem to be getting closer to it), but the incident seems to have unexpected effects - one that brings Elektra back into Matt's life.

   But it's not a happy visit - she's in a murderous mood, and when that happens, even Daredevil's life is in jeopardy.

   My first reaction to seeing Elektra back in this series is a happy one, since it flashes back to her first appearances (a real high point in DD's history) - though it does it in unexpected ways.

   But the story itself is a bit dodgy - it doesn't exactly pay fair with the reader. It can still redeem itself, but we'll have to wait another issue or two to see.

   But I do love that cover by Bill Sienkiewicz!

Grade: B
