Confession #1128

“The Daredevil: Born Again arc is quite easily my favourite. I feel like it is very good literature and I think if it weren’t a comic, people would treat it more like classic literature. The only reason I don’t think some English classes have that in their reading list is just because it’s a comic and all comics are "meaningless entertainment”.“

Hey! I've already been interested in starting to read the Daredevil comics because of you but now the new Netflix show makes me want to read them even more! Problem is, I'm not sure where to start or what to read because there seems to be a lot of Daredevil comics! If you could offer some advice/recommendations, that would be very appreciated! Thank you!

Yay!!  I always love hearing that I get people into Daredevil and I am even more glad that the Netflix series is getting people more interested in the comics!

If you liked the Netflix series style and atmosphere, I would recommend starting with Daredevil: Man Without Fear by Frank Miller and John Romita Jr.  This comic is a retelling of Matt’s origin so it is a great place to start.  The Netflix series took a lot of influences from this book as well and it is where we see the black ‘ninja’ costume.

From there, I would recommend Daredevil: Yellow.  It is a book about Matt’s early years in the original yellow costume and has some really awesome art by Tim Sale.

I would also recommend Daredevil: Born Again.  It’s another book by Frank Miller and it is considered the best Daredevil book out there.

The Bendis and Maleev run on Daredevil is one of my favorites and would be the next thing to read.  It is collected in these three books.  Their run goes straight into the Brubaker and Lark run which is collected in these three books.

And then after that*, you can read Mark Waid’s run on Daredevil.  His run started out in volume 3 of Daredevil and is collected in these three books.  Then he continued his run into volume 4 of Daredevil which is still going on, but the first two books can be found here and here.

Be sure to also check out my comic rec tag for some more recs and help regarding Daredevil comics as well as some other comics as well.  And always feel free to message me for more info :)

*Just a note that I started really reading Daredevil with Mark Waid’s run and because his run is really easy to get into, it might be easier for you to start there as well.  It just depends on what style you are looking for.  Mark Waid’s run is lighter and Daredevil: Man Without Fear is grittier.

October 22

“Born Again” details Daredevil’s descent into insanity and destitution at the hands of the Kingpin, as well as his subsequent struggle to build a new life for himself. The arc begins in Daredevil #227 (October 22, 1985). Karen Page, the former secretary of the Nelson & Murdock law offices and girlfriend of Matt Murdock, had left years earlier to pursue an acting career. After a brief period of success, she became a heroin addict and was reduced to starring in pornographic films in Mexico. Strapped for cash, she sells the information that Matt Murdock is Daredevil for a shot of heroin. This information is sold upward to the Kingpin. Over the next six months, he uses his influence to have the IRS freeze Murdock’s accounts, the bank foreclose on his apartment, and police lieutenant Nicholas Manolis testify that he saw Murdock pay a witness to perjure himself. By coincidence, Murdock’s girlfriend Glorianna breaks up with him and turns to dating his law partner and best friend Foggy Nelson on the rebound. Now homeless, Murdock begins suffering from paranoia and has become extremely aggressive. He is continuously followed by the Kingpin’s subordinates, who provide the Kingpin with frequent updates on his mental state, as he has become obsessed with the fruits of his scheme to destroy Murdock. Driven by thoughts of revenge, Murdock confronts the Kingpin in his office, and is brutally beaten by the crime lord.
