Born Again was brilliant, but Marvel can’t back away from it fast enough. Two filler issues with breakdowns by Steve Ditko try hard to put “status quo” Daredevil back into the Marvel Universe. It starts with Madcap doing wild stuff in the city–so wild that The Rose, from Amazing Spider-Man, puts a hit out on him.
The character Madcap lends himself to Ditko’s style, but Ditko paired with Klaus Janson is just odd looking.
Then, in #235, he meets Mr. Hyde.
Sit tight, though, because Ann Nocenti’s excellent run is coming soon.
