"The senses ……….. The fighting skills …………The acrobatics ……….they are just tools ………..But the man ………… he had to be inspired "

To be clear , I am not nostalgic . I haven't been introduced to the daredevil books until the last 2 year or so . Hell , if i had any shred of nostalgia , i would say i had it for the 2003 movie .

That being said ,I found it scary to jump to the old school comics , and witness the awkwardness and dullness of the super hero genre , that might only appeal for a younger me if
I was concerned there would be a cornucopia of Frank Miller talking heads a la Batman Returns and I wouldn't find this terribly interesting. I'm happy to say my concerns were unfounded. The quality of the story is low in the first couple issues but soon Miller and Johnson start hitting their stride. The Kingpin under their pens becomes a powerful and interesting character. Bullseye and Electra are both well written and add some interesting story lines. This is a must have if you are a big Darede ...more
This omnibus collects the first few issues Frank Miller did for Daredevil. I really liked Daredevil as a kid, though I really didn't get to read a whole lot, so I thought this would be a fun read. I wasn't disappointed.

Frank Miller picked up Daredevil in the final issue of an existing storyline so there are a ton of supporting characters and plot points that aren't really given any introduction (understandably). This is all a bit confusing at times but with just a little bit of background knowl
My love for daredevil started with the movie that apparently, everyone was hating .. it was one my favorite movies when I was kid ( replayed it to death!) and seeing how there was no more movies I knew I had to go to the comic one day because I freaking love the character! and here I am with a good start with what inspired the movie. hearing the story behind this and how frank miller turned the characters and the story for a full sweep of AWESOMENESS! made this an instant read.

Though it's slow to start, Frank Miller's work on Daredevil revolutionized the character from its core. His genius really shines through as he strategically builds the foundation for everything The Man Without Fear is known for today. The care and finesse put into this groundwork is what allowed Michael Brian Bendis and Ed Brubaker's subsequent runs feel so gratifying to read through as Murdock's will and sanity are constantly brought to breaking points that would simply kill a lesser man.
This series was inspired by Stan Lee watching a blind man walk down the street without a stick, dog or helper. Stan Lee was so impressed that this man had lost the most important bodily function for independence, but he remained so strong and dignified.

To me, Daredevil is about potential, inner strength and the willpower to overcome all odds. Daredevil lost his sight and has had terrible things happen to him, but he still puts all of his energy into making the world a better place. We aren't al

Recommends it for: Fans of both graphic novels and pulp fiction
Frank Miller has become one of the foremost figures in the comic industry, and after reading his collected work from his historical run on "Daredevil", it's easy to see why. The pulp style of writing in the early stories harkens back to the original 'Batman' stories, but Miller soon hits his stride, blending hard-knocks dialogue and action with deep characterizations. Each story is better than the last, from the return of the Kingpin, to some of the classic battles with arch-enemy Bullseye, as w ...more
Classic gritty comics. Daredevil is a great street-level superhero, dealing with generally mundane problems in these stories with more than human but not planet shattering powers. Great art and colors throughout, and really interesting shades of characters and plots.
Daredevil was on the verge of being cancel due to low sales, until they gave Frank Miller the character, and everything changed. This omnibus explains why Frank Miller is a legend. This has everything that defined Daredevil for pretty much for a long time. So many great moments, great characters, and shocking turns of events.Regardless of what you have to say, all writers are just continuing Frank Miller's Daredevil.The artwork (The first issue was the strongest issue for art)was good, and conti ...more
Renan Veras
Such an amazing story telling, Miller at beginning of his career. For me Daredevil starts to be the high point of Marvel Universe after read this Omnibus, Murdock is one of the best character that i followed in those past years, he's not, a normal super hero, just a standard guy with a lot of trouble(or bad luck).
All the support characters has a great chemical, and see Murdock change the sides of coin everytime that he see than something is wrong is spectacular.

I recommend this book for every on
Kane Harvey
Perfect mix of street level gang violence and bullshit ninja mysticism. Great read.
Michael Rubino
Wow...just wow. To watch Miller take over this book and this character and slowly grow in to the Frank Miller that did The Dark Knight Returns and Sin City was just amazing. I loved every page of this epic and will be on the hunt for more Miller-Daredevil immediately.

This was a huge book that when I bought it I never thought I would read the whole way through, but I was wrong. I didn't want it to end. I would have never bought this if it was not for a Free Comic Book Day 1/2 price sale, but I a
Paul Dinger
There is nothing like firs reading these works. They were then a heady brew that included sex, violence, and gore on a level that no other comic could touch. And it just kept coming. Miller was liberated by the fact that Daredevil wasn't a big seller, sadly when he got going it did, and this brought the suits out with their ideas of why DD was popular. These stories are so great that it was here the movie makers came to to do their story. The movie was literally highlights from these incredible ...more
An amazing collection. Only the best DD stories from Miller. I have read these before, but it was great to have them all in one volume.

I recently collected and read the original issues covering the second half of this omnibus. While ninjas in comics, dark moody artwork and gritty story lines featuring strong female characters are commonplace now, Frank Miller set the tone for all of those things in these Daredevil run, as well as the rest of his career.
This is pre-"Dark Knight Returns" and pre-"Sin City" and he takes Daredevil from ho-hum hero to a character that you can't stop reading. His run on this book was fantastic. Elektra, The Hand, Stick, Bullseye, etc.. I'm pretty sure he started them and if not, he made them what they are.
Seamus O'Keeffe
Excellent, a comics run truly deserving of the its billing. The definitive Daredevil.
Russell Grant
This was probably my 3rd go round with this material, and it's still a damned fine read. Miller and Janson are locked in to Daredevil, and the quality puts many books published today to shame.
Iain Macleod
Going for as much as £350 on amazon marketplace. But I got this hefty tome for £18 in the clearance shelf at a local Waterstones! Result!
Lori Graves Murry
Every so often I have to go back and read Frank Millers DD run. It reminds me to keep reading comics, if I have forgotten.
Largely concerned the central part of the famed "Elektra Saga" this a stunning crime story.
Khairul H.
Collects the Daredevil Visionaries - Frank Miller trade paperbacks into one huge book.
Great art and half the stories are pretty cool, just expected more from Miller
