Issue Summary

Summary by Eric Shaw

The cover says it all folks. DD swinging into a street scene replete with a crashed bus and smashed windows. He cries out, "Foggy -- You've got to help me! The whole city has gone blind!" To which Foggy replies, "What did you say? Where are you, masked man? I --I can't see!" And now our story:

We open with ol' Horn Head swinging into some armed robbers who identify themselves as Crackers and Shorts. Ugh. A bust up occurs with DD getting the best of the guys until Shorts lands a head shot and miraculously DD can see again! But only for a page, and we wake up with Matt from nothing but a dream. He ponders his dream and the need to escape his blindness when Foggy comes a calling. Foggy stumbles into the house and tells Matt he has gone blind! They leave Matt's home and make their way into a city populated with citizens losing their sight. They catch a cab to Matt's ophthalmologist Dr. Jason Carrington. He reveals that Foggy's iris's have completely constricted stopping all light from entering the eye! He prescribes rest so Matt dumps Foggy off at his apartment while he swings into action.

A crash of glass alerts DD to a break in by crooks who call themselves the Committee. Once more swinging into action our hero speaks the words that named this wondrous web site, "...and here comes the harvester! Otherwise known as Daredevil Man Without Fear!" And the whopping commences. But DD is overwhelmed and knocked cold.

Daredevil is awakened by a kindly blind stranger by the name of Slate (packing a guitar) and led to the nearest police precinct. Along the way it becomes clear that the city is slowly becoming blind. At the precinct a group of already totally blind citizens has formed: Doc Tinker, Dutch Potter 'Nam vet and Cindy. This last member was near the city reservoir recently and overheard some thugs getting ready to dose the water with something that will blind Manhattan. DD bounds into action again and soon finds the committee again. This time DD triumphs with the help of the truly blind citizens. After a day the citizens of the city regain their sight and DD congratulates his new friends.

This issue also includes a letter to the editor in the Let's Level With Daredevil section from Bob Rozarkis who became a writer at DC.
