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”.“

THIRD EYE DD SPOTLIGHT, IN STOCK NOW: DAREDEVIL: BORN AGAIN TPB – “And I - I have shown him … that a man without hope is a man without fear.”

The definitive Daredevil tale, by industry legends Frank Miller and David Mazzucchelli! Karen Page, Matt Murdock’s former lover, has traded away the Man Without Fear’s secret identity for a drug fix.

Now, Daredevil must find strength as the Kingpin of Crime wastes no time taking him down as low as a human can get.

From the creative team that brought you the iconic BATMAN YEAR ONE!

Question about Jury Duty

I have to go in on Tuesday and they said I might be there all day so I should bring a book. 

Does it have to be a book or could I bring a graphic novel? I’ve got like 9 stacked up on my dressed that I’d really like to start working my way through lol

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.

Daredevil Recommendations

So I’ve been seeing a lot of posts about Daredevil now that everyone has had a chance to binge-watch the new Neftlix show. And since I love Daredevil and have read a massive ton of Daredevil comics, let me share my recommendations with you!

1. Daredevil: The Man Without Fear by Frank Miller and John Romita, Jr.

This is the “Year One” of Daredevil – it presents his origin and early days. The Netflix show takes a lot of stuff from this, including Matt’s black outfit. If you want to start with Daredevil’s origin story, this is it.

2. Daredevil Vol 1, 2, 3 by Frank Miller and Klaus Janson.

This was when Daredevil started getting really good. Before Miller and Janson, Daredevil was a fun, swashbuckling character, but he always felt like a second-string Spider-Man. Miller added more darkness, ninja elements, and crime noir. He also added the main villain that would forever change Daredevil: Wilson Fisk, the Kingpin of Crime. (Before this, Fisk was mainly a Spider-Man villain.) This was the era that also introduced Ben Urich, Bullseye, and Elektra.

3. Daredevil: Born Again by Frank Miller and David Mazzucchelli

The climax to Frank Miller’s run and possibility one of the best superhero stories ever. Daredevil’s nemesis, Wilson Fisk, gets his hands on Daredevil’s secret identity. And then Fisk completely destroys his life. Read it.

4. Daredevil Ultimate Collection Vol. 1, 2, 3 by Brian Michael Bendis and Alex Maleev

Bendis and Maleev again reinvent Daredevil as a gritty crime drama mixed with superheroes. They take a lot from Miller, but also mix it up with other things: an FBI agent leaks Daredevil’s identity to the press, so Matt’s identity is even more fragile than ever. And a fight between Matt and Fisk ends in a way that nobody expects…with Daredevil as the King of Hell’s Kitchen.

5. Daredevil Vol. 1 by Mark Waid, Paolo Rivera, Marcos Martin, Emma Rios, Kano Kano, and Khoi Pham

You may have noticed that Daredevil’s life hasn’t been a happy one. In fact, most of these recommendations have been so very depressing. When Mark Waid took over, however, he turned him back into a fun, swashbuckling crimefighter. The darkness is still there, but balanced by a sense of adventure and humor. For example:
