Synopsis for "Sightless, in a Savage Land!"
After Foggy Nelson won the role of New York's next D.A., Matt Murdock has decided to close up Nelson & Murdock in order to travel. While taking a cruise, the Plunderer, an infamous pirate, attacks. Changing into Daredevil, Matt battles the Plunderer's men.
Meanwhile in the Savage Land, Ka-Zar and Zabu become aware of an attacking party of Swamp Men that are seeking out the jungle lord in order to destroy him. When the Swamp Men attack Skull Island, Ka-Zar and Zabu go to stop them.
Back aboard the ship, Daredevil gets the upper-hand over Plunderer's men, however, he is forced to stop when the Plunderer threatens to throw the crew overboard if he doesn't surrender. Being taken aboard the Plunderer's ship, Daredevil also finds that it is a submarine and that the Plunderer intends to take Daredevil to Skull Island.
Their arrival on the island lands them in a fight against Ka-Zar and Daredevil is forced to attack the jungle king, who easily defeats the man without fear, and somehow knocks out his powers. Being forced into retreat, Plunderer leaves Daredevil behind. Ka-Zar decides to take DD in and seek out the powerful Ju-Ju Berries to heal DD.
As Zebu leaves Daredevil's side to save Ka-Zar from a man eating plant, Daredevil's unconscious body is left alone and at the mercy of the arriving Maa-Gor last survivor of the Ape-Men.... This story is continued next issue.
