Something that did surprise me was that some elements from the Frank Miller/Klaus Janson run were used in the Daredevil movie from 2003. Those elements though could not save it though because the film sucked. Heavily.
Oh well. I recommend this book to anyone who likes their comic books with more rounded characters and clever, engaging plots!
Here we get to watch (for the first time in comics), a character move from a typical spandex-clad, fighting hero with a secret identity to a thoughtful and troubled person who contemplates murder and love. But, and it's a big but, unlike many of these omnibus journeys, this one is pretty much fascinating and entertaining from the word go. Issue 163 was always superb (with the Hulk) and Miller's pencils here still make me sigh, yearn to be 12 again and try those acrobatic moves!
I could go on for ages, but the whole fantastic run is here; to sit with a beer and re-read the whole Elektra/Stick/Claw/Stone/Hand/Kingpin saga again and again is simply a joy. The run finishes with the 11 issue arc following the lost DD coping with Elektra's death and wanting revenge on her killer, the Zenith is reached in 191 (in my opinion the best comic book ever printed) where DD plays Russian roulette with a quadriplegic Bullseye.
Overall it's a big book (the spine is over 2" across and it's way over 2Kg -so no bedtime reading!) and it disappoints that the 'Devil's Advocate' letters pages are missing but the oversize, bright white pages, production values and extras (a good 60 odd pages) make up for this.
Yeah, I'm a DD, Miller and Janson fanboy - but many many people agree with me: DareDevil 158-191 and The Dark Knight 1-4 (Miller/Janson's next project) are amongst the best comics ever written -'nuff said!
