Carlos LaMuerto, a.k.a. Black Tarantula, is finally doing something good with his life. Well, at least it ain't all bad. Lying low after getting out of prison and wiping out an entire gang, Carlos has become a low-key Robin Hood -- cleaning up the neighborhood he used to run as a gang lord. But he's about to discover that leaving his past behind isn't as simple as a change of attitude…as ghosts from his former life haunt him, Carlos turns to his friend/adversary, Matt Murdock. Now Black Tarantula and Daredevil must work together to save the streets of Hell's Kitchen from a powerful new gang from Carlos' homeland.

A decent story about the Black Tarantula. Daredevil, at the end of the issue, is kind of out of character here, but it seems to be justified. I had never seen nor heard of Black Tarantula before this, and I must say that he is a really interesting character. Former bad guy gone good, and nearly like Daredevil in his part of town. Artwork was ok, but nothing spectacular. Though the book is titled Daredevil, he was more of a supporting character here. Good Dollar bin find.

Pretty cool art, but nothing spectacular. Fairly basic story detailing a bit of the Black Tarantula's past and history. Overall, it's a fun read especially to familiarize yourself with the character if you're going to be reading Shadowland.
