Subj: Daredevil #18: Probably, it happens next issue...

Daredevil 018 (2017)

So. Guess we have to wait 30 more days.

It's disappointing that we don't get the secret of DD's mindwiping the masses. Hopefully, it happens next issue and it probably does given the cover of #20 appears to be a pseudo-reset where DD has once again 'found his way' after being lost for OVER A YEAR Marvel time. He also seems to have found his true colors... true color: all red hornhead costume. Woo hoo! There are clues that it will involve this new Purple Man star-shaped machine powered by Purple Kids - since it seemed to remove all the time and distance limitations of his mesmerizing spell when that angry mob went across town to Matt's place to carry out their ordered to hunt down the 2 kids in last month's surprise cliffhanger. This cliffhanger may be less 'surprising' but more exciting.

This read like an copy of almost any later episode of Jessica Jones on Neflix with Jessica reacting to Purple Man flaunting his powers. And that Season One was a reinterpretation of what came in the comics before that. Full circle. Still, imitation can be the sincerest form of flattery and this very simple installment was flattering enough. Although the crazy color scheming continued to be an eyesore on too many of the pages.

Nice cover... but torn between the symbolic over context costume choice. Thoughts?
