Okay, back with the second and final part to this orphaned “double post.” We’ll be looking at some more panels from Karl Kesel and Cary Nord’s run on the book. I’ll just let the panels/pages themselves do most of the talking. Kesel moments -part 1 is here. The first page below is from Daredevil #361 in which Matt gets a guide dog. Sort of. It’s really a retired police dog that Foggy decided to get for Matt to use as a partner in crime fighting…

Matt gets a wet greeting from Deuce, his new dog.

In case you don’t remember what happened to Deuce “the devil dog,” Foggy lost him in a poker game in the Daredevil/Deadpool ’97 annual. He apparently went to live with Blind Al.

The next panel I wanted to share is a really nicely drawn action scene. Considering that I prefer my Daredevil just a little more grounded in reality than he was during these issues, it might come as a surprise that I liked Kesel’s run as much as I did. On the other hand, I also enjoy a really good and spectacular Daredevil scene like the one below, from Daredevil #364. Matt taking a daring dive off a building to save someone he loves, you gotta love it.

Below is a page from Kesel and Nord’s last issue, #365. I included it here to remind us of just how messy (thought interesting) Foggy’s love life was during this time. It also shows us just how evil Rosalind Sharpe really is. I doubt he’d be the overly sweet and insanely loyal friend he is today if she had been the one to raise him.

Well, Kesel’s run ended quite suddenly, and so does this post. I’ll be back later on (yes, I know my time estimates are always off, but this one won’t be) with my review of Daredevil #112. I’ll see you then!

  1. I remember that dive after Karen that took place in the Kesel run. The best part, if I remember correctly is how he manages to land safely with her. An exhilarating ending to be sure. And the Nord art was stunning at the time, although now it seems outdated.
