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)
Next: DAREDEVIL Vol 2
