He discusses Daredevil's origin, his motivations & personality, and the types of stories that Stan Lee, especially, wrote for this character. Sanderson shows great admiration for the character and Lee's handling of the character without taking anything away from the Miller interpretation that followed in later years.

The Law is a Ass: "Suborning perjury with ol' Hornhead" (p.40-41) by Bob Ingersoll
Ingersoll, a Cleveland lawyer, lets us know that Daredevil, like LA Law, Law & Order, and numerous other TV legal shows, has a LOT to answer for compared to law in the real world. In addition to the usual mistakes that writers make in procedure, dialog, etc., Ingersoll points out that ol' Matt Murdock makes some very big ethical no nos as well! This article concentrates on issue #20 and the wrongful dismissal suit that Matt is involved in. However, Ingersoll hints about even worse lawyering that is coming up in the following issues of Gale's story arc.

Ingersoll, a Cleveland lawyer who writes for the CBG, continues his analysis of Bob Gale's story arc in Daredevil #20-25 (vol.2). This time he concentrates on the antics of the Jester "serving" Daredevil, and the inadequacies of Daredevil's lawyer who apparently can't tell the difference between civil & criminal cases, and doesn't even realize what Daredevil's best defense is. At least in this article, Ingersoll directed some of the spotlight on folks other than Matt.

In this last installment of Ingersoll's critique of the legalities (or should I say "illegalities") of Bob Gale's Daredevil #20-25, Ingersoll points out that Daredevil's use of multiple "Daredevil"s is just plain fraud, Hillman (the unexpected DD) was just a bad story fix, and the Ringmaster's revelation was both stupid and criminal.

This article is really a combination of three articles in one, which works surprisingly well considering the potential for confusion, although it is still a little distracting at times. The main article carries the subtitle "Four Decades of Streetfighting". It's a fair attempt at a summary of Daredevil's backstory and the history of the comic to try to bring the uninitiated up to speed. Interspersed on these pages are large boxes with white outlines spotlighting different folks involved in the movie: Johnson (director), Affleck, Garner, Farrell, Duncan along with some stills of each of the actors/actresses. The third article is made up of a thin margin column along the right side of each page highlighting "key" Daredevil issues over the decades & showing the cover for each one.
