Daredevil: Blood of the Tarantula #1
June, 2008

Appearances:
Black Tarantula(Carlos Lamuerto), Daredevil(Matt Murdock), Foggy Nelson, Luis Rodriguez, Marina Lamuerto-FB

Synopsis:
Pg1-pg10
The Black Tarantula beats up some drug dealers. He donates their money to a local church and destroys their product as the sun rises. Elsewhere, Foggy and Matt chat about the Tarantula’s actions over the morning paper. Later, the Tarantula is distracted in the street when he thinks he sees his wife.
Pg11-FB
Carlos argues with his wife as he leaves to receive the Black Tarantula powers and title.
Pg12pn1-pg12pn5-FB
Carlos receives the Black Tarantula powers.
Pg12pn6(of 9)-pg21: same day as pg10
Daredevil beats up some criminals while Carlos gets a call. They claim to have his wife and son, so he meets them where he’s ambushed. It’s his old gang, led by his cousin Luis. He escapes, barely, and makes his way to Matt’s place.
Pg22-pg33: next day
Carlos wakes up to find Matt working out. He explains the situation with his wife and son, and that night they return to the meet site. The Black Tarantula discovers that it’s not his wife and son, they were both dupes, drugged so they couldn’t speak. When he releases him he sets off a bomb. Daredevil fights Luis’ men, and the Black Tarantula emerges, still on fire, and attacks Luis. Daredevil finishes with the rest of the men to discover Luis dead.
Pg34: two weeks later
The Black Tarantula is laying low, working for a construction company.

References:
It’s been ‘nearly a month’ since the Black Tarantula put the word out of no drugs in his neighborhood. So, nearly a month since sometime after Daredevil Annual vol2 #1.

Milla is namechecked as to why Matt is so miserable in this issue. I would place this early in the gap between DD2 105 & 106, before he descends into total misery.
