Last week’s Top of the Pile was Daredevil #101, and this week Ed Brubaker puts out another gem in Daredevil Annual #1. Matt Murdock gets visited by Carlos LaMuerto (a.k.a. The Black Tarantula), just released from prison and looking to turn his life around. Murdock not only gives LaMuerto a job at his law firm but enlists his help in costume as Black Tarantula. Tarantula tries to walk the perfectly straight & narrow but ultimately realizes that he doesn’t have the patience to do things Daredevil’s way. He returns to his old ways, only this time as a force of good instead of evil.

Ultimate Power #8 – The first seven issues of this title were written by Brian Michael Bendis. This issue was written by Jeph Loeb. Odd.
