Frank Miller - what can you say? - this volume covers his initial work on the title from 1979-1981 - superb in every aspect. My only problem? - whilst this volume is realistically priced the subsequent 2 are far more expensive - this is why I eventually ordered the hardback omnibus edition including all the Miller/Janson run. I grew up relishing this character's exploits - only artist to play second fiddle to Miller would be the great Gene Colan . In whatever form you get these titles - enjoy as I have - twice(?) over at the ripe old age of 61!!!!

You've probably heard great things about Frank Miller's run on Daredevil. If that's what you're after, this is not a great place to start, but it's also the only place to start.

Miller pencils every issue in this trade, but he doesn't take over sole writing duties until issue 12 of the 16 collected. Before Frank, Roger McKenzie, Bill Mantlo and the like take us through 11 issues of that archaic comics dialogue, examples of which include Spider-Man (himself) exclaiming "The Amazing Spider-Man is FINISHED!" Much worse, every issue is filled with lines clearly designed to fill new readers in on DD's powers, so he's always describing how his powers work and WHY he's thinking what he's thinking. And he calls Spider-Man `fella' which makes him seem twice as old as he is. Yuck. Plus, anytime Bullseye is featured, he will invariably boast `in my hands, any item is a deadly weapon', or have it boasted for him. This sort of writing is out of date and grating enough to have me almost recommend this collection is skipped. Alas, when Frank takes over towards the end he sets things in motion for the rest of his run that are really quite important, so it's worth picking up.

Fans of Sin City, 300 and The Dark Knight Returns will barely recognize the work in this book, I might add: this is Miller working on a monthly title for one of the big two very early in his career, so the art is not indicative of his personality, shall we say. This is no bad thing, however. His pencils are striking and capable of efficient storytelling, and Janson's ink add a sombre touch to the atmosphere that is honestly the defining aspect of these issues, artistically.

Once you've done with this, pick up volumes 2 and 3, and the Born Again TPB which is collected separately.

Way back in 1979 Frank Miller was given the chance to work for Marvel comics, orginally as an artist and then later as a writer. Miller's first major work was with Daredevil, which he continued with for 4 years. This volume has some flaws, which makes it a three star comic book. Firstly the first dozen stories that are written by Roger McKenzie are mediocre at best. Issues 158 to 167 are mostly flat, with Daredevil fighting villians from other Marvel stories; like Dr Octopus and the Hulk for example. Also these earlier stories are mostly limited to linear plot narrative and unimaginative fight scenes. However by the time Miller takes over as writer, the stories are more unique and they explore the darker side of crime. Also Frank Miller introduces Elektra and his stories also see the return of the Kingpin. Therefore this volume includes :

The Spectacular Spiderman 27 - 28 (worth a miss, zzz)
Daredevil 158 to 172 (Best plots are 159 - 161 Bullseye returns and 169 - 172)

DAREDEVIL Vol 2
