After an impassioned speech from his best friend Foggy Nelson and a dramatic reenactment of his past through the eyes of two warring survival instincts, Matt Murdock awakens from his coma in Man Without Fear #2 with a new lease on life. Given the breadth of his badly-healed old injuries and his myriad new ones, he eulogizes Daredevil to Sam Chung, A.K.A. Blindspot, who can’t believe that Matt Murdock is truly saying goodbye to his vigilante ways.

Marvel provided The Beat with an exclusive preview of the first five pages of the new issue, on sale Jan. 9. Take a look at the preview below and be sure to pick up a copy of Man Without Fear #2 at your local comic shop on Wednesday.
