Format: Paperback
quite simply one of the best stories ever in the marvel universe.
yes, you need a little more background into the characters before it makes sense, and its not the best book to read if you're into action and want a 'normal' comic. but it has so much more than that.
Like any of David Macks work, its above all other comics. The storytelling is as much part of the artwork as anything else on the page. the words are part of the pictures, the pictures tell as much story as the words. This is a grown up graphic novel experience. This is as strong as any of Macks other work ( if you like this, you'll love David Macks 'Kabuki', a monster of an epic and in my opinion the greatest comic available)
theres a strength to this story that is very subtle. i think everyone takes something away from them when they read this. i can honestly say its one of the stories that has changed my life., depending on how hard or easy your childhood was, you'll understand what i mean.
some artists have the ability to amaze you with their talent, david mack is above all others in the comic book world. his world is filled with everything a story needs; emotion.
these isnt an artist alive who knows the true meaning of 'visual story telling' better than david mack.

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Gordon Hay on 7 Sept. 2003
Format: Paperback
This is the 3rd volume in the Marvel Knights run, and is the first to be written by the acclaimed writer that is Brian M. Bendis, and is penciled by David Mack. The story is told from the viewpoint of Daily Bugle reporter Ben Urich as he tries to discover what Daredevil has to do with a child named Timmy, who only seems to speak like he is telling the story of a superhero battle.
Once you get past the artwork which would put many non-comic books fans right off this book at first sight, you begin to relise how well this book is written which then makes you start to feel for the child in this book and understand why he is the way he is. One problem though is that it is a very short trade paper back but it leaves you gasping for more
Bendis countines the high standard of writing that we have come to expect of him from reading his other comics like Ulimate Spiderman and Alias and this is a must for DD and other comic book fans alike.

Format: Paperback
Brian Michael Benid is a heck of a writer. I knew that from his "Elektra' mini-series. In 'Wake Up' he impresed me a lot. Because I thoroghly enjoyed the work.
Because , really, I shouldn't have. Because this one stars reporter Ben Urich and is mainly about the little son of a minor villain (recently deceased) and his efforts to cope with his father's death. A death in which Daredevil played no small part.
It was like reading a short story by Jonathan Kellerman, with lovely painted artwork from David Mack and disturbing child crayons 'drawn ' by the boy.
It was an experience in psychotheraphy with occassional muscled men in tights and bad flashbacks from Ben Urich. It is Bendis showing off, a bravura piece which hardly fits the superhero mold. Not even for one issue (though that has been done by the likes of Alan Moore) but a whole story-arc.
And it worked so well, I can still hardly believe it.

Format: Paperback
This book seems to have gone out of print, and as such all the prices in the New and Used section of this site are ridiculously high for a four-issue TPB. As it happens, this book is also collected in the recently released Daredevil By Brian Michael Bendis & Alex Maleev Ultimate Collection Book 1, alongside another 15 issues for less than the price any of the above are asking for. So if you really want to read it, get that.

As for the story itself, I hated it, but then I hate David Mack as much as everyone else seems to admire him, so if you're a fan this oughtta be right up your alley.

I bought Wake Up as my first venture into the Daredevil mythos.
Big mistake.
Now, that's not to say that Wake Up is bad. Far from it, it's a very gripping story, it's just that Daredevil turns up for around 6 pages throughout the entire book, which means you only get to hear from Ben Urich the rest of the time, so if it's your first time reading a Daredevil book, don't be surprised if you don't get some of what's going on.
But the story is enjoyable nonetheless. We find Urich investigating why Timmy, the son of "super-villain" Leap Frog, has become traumatised, obsessed with Daredevil in his few moments of clarity. Also, where has Leap Frog gone anyway?
Fans of surprise twists and endings may be a little disappointed with the finale, you don't really learn anything you wouldn't expect, but it's much better than the cop-out it could have been.
As far as the art goes, well....
They must have been cutting costs at Marvel over the few months that this was made, sacrificing the inker and colourist, as this book is almost entirely made up of watercolour paintings by artist David Mack. Mack is obviously a talented penciller and painter and the overall effect he achieves is not short of inspired, but it's definetely not for everyone.
So overall Wake Up is a good story, though really only for diehard DD and Marvel Knight fans or people who appreicate something a bit different in their reading material.
