The best DD story collection, hands down. My personal favorite Miller work, along with Dark Knight Returns and the oft forgotten Electra.

I never even knew about Daredevil until I picked up this book, but once I did he made it into my top twenty superheroes. Though it may be dark and brutal, this volumes is filled with how a man has to deal with the tragedies and backlash that come with being a superhero.

5/5

Astonishingly gritty and gripping, one of the best "runs" on a pre-existing comic title I've ever read, both in terms of writing and art. A must-read.

One of the finest graphic novels ever written. The costumed crimefighter's eternal battle has been reduced to its most iconic elements, and distilled into the dramatic odyssey of a truly noble hero. Witness his betrayal and abandonment, his defeat and downfall, his darkest hour—weak, despairing and alone on the streets, with the whole world seemingly against him—and through it all, his enduring strength to survive, his capacity for courage and selflessness even at his lowest point and his ultimate reclamation of the hero's will to rise again. Daredevil, aka Matt Murdock, has never been so perfectly realized, so heroic and compelling a character as he comes across in these pages—nor has his eternal foe, the Kingpin, ever seemed so merciless, so terrifyingly evil, so unstoppable. If you're a fan of superhero comics, this is essential reading.

This a well-written and drawn Daredevil story but I didn't particularly enjoy it. It is the story of how Kingpin tries to destroy Daredevil emotionally and physically by taking away everything he has. It really puts Daredevil/Matt Murdock through the emotional wringer and I found it darker than I prefer my superhero comics. Miller and Mazzucheli really seem to relish Daredevil's torture. For most of the story Matt is not Daredevil at all but just Matt going from one punishment to the next. Were the 80's much fun for comics? I much prefer Mark Waid's run on Daredevil. But again, it is well-written and drawn and if you like your comics dark this may be for you.

One of my favourite superhero comics of all time. In many ways, even better than Miller's initial Daredevil run.

One of Frank Miller's best work. Exceptionally story. "A man without hope is a man without fear."
