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, superhero by night" as a last resort. Sales were flagging on the long running title, and cancellation was just around the corner. But all this young writer-artist did was instill a completely new feel into the adventures of Daredevil, instilling new life and energy into the character that has propelled Daredevil to this day.

Collected in this second volume are twelve seminal stories from Miller?s acclaimed two-year run on the title. The centerpiece of these groundbreaking tales is the story of Daredevil and Elektra, the shy Greek law student that blind attorney Matt Murdock met in his youth who would become the vengeance-driven assassin he would be forced to fight in his future. A sweeping tragic epic, the Elektra story is dark and grim, but retains a human center. This is comic book noir no fan should be without!

Synopsis:

Three dark souls swarm around the Man without Fear, vying for his body, mind, and soul. One is Elektra, his college girlfriend turned deadly killer. Another is Bullseye, the madman who can transform any item into a weapon. The third is Kingpin, the crime boss who is once again polluting New York City with his corrupted touch. Locked in a dance of death, these unforgettable characters race toward a chilling climax that can only end in pain, betrayal and brutal retribution.

Miller redefined DD and created one of the most fondly remembered and dramatic series, breaking new ground in preparation for his classic Dark Knight Returns. Coloring is re-separated for a "smoother," non-pixilated presentation of the hues. Collects issues #168-182 of Daredevil volume one.

Synopsis:

This volume features the gritty, street-level action and moody atmosphere that made Miller's Daredevil classic — including appearances by the Kingpin, Elektra and Bullseye.
