7. Daredevil Legends Vol. 4: Typhoid Mary $37.95By her own admission, Typhoid Mary is “a love-maker and a man-hater.” She is a psychotic, schizophrenic predator who will use her gallery of multiple personalities for one single-minded purpose: to seduce, dominate, and ultimately execute her prey. Quickly becoming the underworld’s most feared assassin, Mary terrorizes her targets with a seemingly inexhaustible lust for bloodshed. In service to the Kingpin, Typhoid Mary sets her deadly sights on Daredevil, the heroic protector of New York’s notorious Hell’s Kitchen. With Daredevil at her mercy, will Typhoid Mary be able to strike the fatal blow?
8. Daredevil: Return of the King $14.21Nearly two years ago, the Kingpin left America to try to build a new life and find a new purpose for himself. Is that new life now coming to the attention of old enemies? And how does this connect to Matt Murdock and his troubles in New York with Lady Bullseye? Find out in Return of the King! Daredevil: Return of the King re-teams four-time award-winning writer Ed Brubaker with groundbreaking artist David Aja for the first time since their work on the cult sensation Immortal Iron Fist!
10. Daredevil: The Fall of the Kingpin $54.99The Fall of the Kingpin is Miller’s Born Again in reverse; where the Kingpin once played Murdock’s life like a master puppeteer, destroying pieces along the way, Murdock now has his chance to do the same in return.
The Kingpin, with his hands in every dirty pie in New York City, has further to fall. And he lands much harder.
Daredevil begins by exposing Kingpin’s sole vulnerability: Vanessa, his lost love. Next, Daredevil removes from the field the Kingpin’s right hand and lover, Typhoid Mary — with a cunning strategy that is a bit heartbreaking to see. From there, the red-garbed hero begins dismantling the Kingpin’s empire bit by bit, using a cadre of international terrorists and the country’s top espionage unit as foils in his plan.
