First off to get the nit picking out of the way six months is way to long to wait for a book. Especially as some people waited far less time than I did for this volume. Just what is happening to Amazon these days? As to the book itself, what can I say other than buy it now. Even though Frank really does not get fully to grips with DD until half way through this book it is still a must buy. If you get this book you will truly understand what all the fuss about both Frank Miller and Daredevil himself is all about. The stories have depth and the art has soul. This book is a true introduction to the two legends that are FM and DD.

This book is amazing! As a massive Frank Miller fan I was eager to get this as I'd only read about his and Klaus Janson's time on the title and small details about the plots etc. I was never a huge fan of Daredevil but since I've started collecting the recent stuff by Mark Waid (which is excellent by the way) I felt I finally needed to get this omnibus and explore what I was told was some of the best stories and art in comics history. After completing it I was completely blown away! It has depth, emotion, a more adult feel and is really engaging. For me this is up there with Alan Moore's run on Swamp Thing! Both writers redifined the characters they worked on!

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!

An expensive yet (if you know anything about the original Miller/Janson run) wonderful comic book purchase.

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!

I have been waiting for this book to be published most of my adult life. The complete Frank Miller / Klaus Jansson run on Daredevil collected in one Hardcover omnibus. At long last. Superb reading. Get it while you can!

Daredevil is amazing, he's like the marvel version of batman. The stories and illustration are incredible. I always lol when DD is leaning back, in the bar, sipping on juice, sneaking on his target- those priceless facial expressions.
