Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Daredevil would have never made it out of the early 1980s if it weren?t for Frank Miller. The young writer-artist was handed the creative reigns of Marvel?s "attorney by day, super hero by night" as a last resort. Sales were flagging on the long running title, and cancellation was just around the corner. But Miller instilled new life and energy into the character that has propelled Daredevil to this day.

Written by Roger McKenzie and Miller, Visionaries is the first of three volumes collecting and documenting Miller's transformation of the Daredevil persona. Volume One collects Daredevil (Vol. One) #158-161, and #163-167, including Miller's very first DD story.

The serious comic book fan and the casual consumer alike will find a wealth of unforgettable stories here, told in the inimitable style of one of the genre's finest talents.

Review:

"Daredevil: Visionaries...is like nothing else ever done on the spandex scene....It was gritty crime drama, which happened to involve a guy in red tights....Volume 1 covers [the] first nine issues [of Miller's run]. While not bereft of the urban crime element, it contains much more super hero lore, and is made more enjoyable by Miller's dark, moody art style." Mark Alan, SciFiDimensions.com

Synopsis:

All the elements that made Miller's tenure on Daredevil a comic noir classic are here: gritty, street-level action, moody atmosphere, and widescreen adventure told with a cinematic eye.

The stories in this volume feature unforgettable characters like the Kingpin, the mammoth king of the New York Underworld; Bullseye, the deranged but deadly assassin; Elektra, the woman Daredevil loves but is forced to oppose; and, of course, Daredevil himself, blind as justice, he is an attorney by day and an urban vigilante by night. Also introduced in this collection is the mysterious ninja brotherhood, The Hand, the group that will ultimately cause Elektra's untimely demise.

The stories included in the volume dedicated to Frank Miller's classic work show the continued development of an artistic legend as his skills continued to grow in stature and depth.
