Another tragedy for Daredevil

A moment of silence for Franklin “Foggy” Nelson. Issue No. 82 of "Daredevil," the first issue by writer Ed Brubaker and artist Michael Lark, came out this week. It’s a gripping story, but a real downer. The story picks up from Brian Michael Bendis’ long run and finds Matt “Daredevil” Murdock behind bars awaiting trial on federal charges. It’s not quite clear to me what those charges are, but the intent is to see Daredevil humiliated and even killed. Matt survives this issue, but his longtime pal and law partner, Foggy, is beaten and stabbed after visiting Matt in prison. He’s still breathing by the last panel, but Marvel has already revealed that Foggy won’t survive.
