A wonderful retelling of the classic story,
This review is from: Daredevil: The Man Without Fear TPB (Graphic Novel Pb) (Paperback)
This is a beautiful rendition of the Daredevil genesis story arc from the masterful pens / pencils of Frank Miller, John Romita, Al Willamson, Christie Scheele and Joe Rosen.
The artwork stunningly accompanies the devastating tale of Matt Munro, the motherless son of a boxer and reluctant mob enforcer raised in Hell's Kitchen. An accident in which he is blinded by a chemical spill saving another man's life seems the end of his ambitions to educate himself out of the ghetto. But a strange man known only as Stick comes into his life and teaches him how to use his other senses. After his father is murdered for refusing to throw a fight Matt turns vigilante and metes out a terrible revenge, but loses his mentor as Stick abandons him as a lost cause. Things don't look good as Matt is becomes passionately involved with fellow vigilante Elektra but he is redeemed by his fight to save a young girl. From this he emerges as the fully fledged Daredevil. Awesome.
