Daredevil #260 ended with a chilling drop. Unlike Daredevil and Bullseye, Typoid Mary clearly drops DD. The next two pages of long panels show his fall, through the trees, into an abandoned railway yard under Hell’s Kitchen. Of course it’s a metaphor. But in comics, it’s also a literal descent.
Hell’s Kitchen becomes hell itself. I love this panel, in which a police captain explains how crazy it’s all gotten.
Eventually, Matt’s broken body is found he’s in the hospital on life support. Karen’s by his side, as is the “good” side of Typhoid Mary. It’s where they meet for the first time, and it’s where Karen finds out Matt was having an affair….
And so begins Karen’s descent. Hell’s Kitchen being Hell now, this is what happens to her:
A stone cold awesome set of issues.
