One of the strongest stories of Marvel Comics!

Creative Team:

I have shown him... That a man without hope... is a man without fear.

I wanted to read this storyline since some months ago when I fo
Daredevil’s secret identity has fallen into the hands of The Kingpin. Rather than a quick and brutal strike, Kingpin elects to take a slow, punishing measure of revenge against a man who has been a thorn in his side for years. Stripping away everything Matt Murdock holds dear, Kingpin leaves Daredevil a shell of his former self. However, a man without hope… is a man without fear.

In the late 1970s, when Daredevil was on the ropes, Frank Miller took over as corner man and willed the Man Without Fe

The first half of this story was amazing and on its own would totally be worth five stars. The forced deconstruction of Matt Murdock was heartbreaking to see, but so inspiring to watch his rebirth. Also really enjoyed seeing Ben Urich get fleshed out a bit more, kind of like Gordon in Long Halloween (still have a hard time viewing Foggy as a real character, though.) The place where this one kind of veered off the rails for me was with Nuke. That whole concept seemed ridiculous to me and got even ...more
When I saw this at the library I was excited: getting to re-read one of the definitive Marvel tales from my childhood? Definitely. I flipped through it and all the imagery came flooding back, and I started thinking this would also fuel my upcoming talk on building great storytelling experiences in modern comics. Slam dunk eh? Hell, if this is half as good as what I saw flipping through DKR, I'm gonna have to take a cold shower.

And it gets underway in a hurry. Not with a bang, but with an economy
Sam Quixote

Matt Murdock's ex, Karen Page, sells out Murdock's secret identity as Daredevil to the Kingpin for an armful of junk and Murdock soon finds his life destroyed by the Kingpin's vast resources. Without a home, money, a job, and seemingly without friends, the Man Without Fear is crushed by the world spiritually and mentally and, in a desperate and hasty fight with the Kingpin, physically as well. This is the rebirth of the Daredevil... Born Again.

I'm a huge fan of Frank Miller's work, not h

As soon as I finished reading Born Again, I knew that I had finished a very special story. Not only my favorite comic book story (and I've read a few!) this seven issue run, in which the Kingpin of Crime discovers that his archenemy Daredevil is in fact the lawyer Matt Murdock, is a cantidate for my favorite work of fiction in any medium. It offers romance-- not two beautiful people falling in love because it makes a good panel to close the story with, but a ruined, homeless ex-lawyer who is reu ...more
I can remember in 1980 when Frank Miller took over Daredevil. I was twelve years old and I was stunned by the changes that he implemented. Suddenly one of my favorite costumed crime-fighters had moved into the world of adult crime fiction - or so it seemed to me at the time. Back in 1980 we weren't using the term "re-boot" for such an action, but that's exactly what Miller did. Throughout the decade other characters would undergo the same treatment by Miller (Batman) and others, but Daredevil wa ...more
Daredevil is my favourite Marvel character, if not my all time favourite comic character and this is supposed to be one of the best stories about Daredevil.

There are three reasons I read this title

1. It's supposed to be frank millers best daredevil story
2. It was on digital sale
3. They are basing the TV show on it and I wanted to get an overview.

It's quite an old story and like most of Frank millers stuff it has a lot of inner dialogue, which can become a bit tiresome if I'm honest. However,
Eh, it was okay. Mazzuchelli's artwork was okay to good and sometimes great, just not as good as Batman Year One. Just sort of old and normal. This is my first Daredevil and I'll say I don't love Miller's writing here or the character himself. Matt Murdock just whines a lot. His life sucks. His love interest is a junkie named Karen who sells him out. His law firm sucks. He pretends to be blind/is blind/I don't get it. Boo hoo, you have radioactively enhanced senses, poor you. I just can't empath ...more

Probable Rating (if I had finished this) : {3/5 stars}

When drug addict Karen Page – also a former lover of Matt's – divulges Daredevil's secret identity to the Kingpin in exchange for a fix, Matt Murdock's whole life is turned upside down, and he s
My first Daredevil! Great start! Onward!

Ok let's do this one fast ..
Did I like this book? Yes but I'd say it's more like 3.5 I'll give it a four because even though I always talk bad about frank miller, I do like daredevil alot.
what did I like?
I liked daredevil I liked the way miller made me feel like this really happened and made me sympathize with Matt alot for losing his whole life. I felt like Kingpin was bad ass and this book was pretty dark as well especially for the 80s and has some very detailed writing *(also a con) . I rea
When I was younger I remember liking this story and then getting a little bored with it. Daredevil at the time was my favorite comic book, and for seven issues, or seven months the story took a break so that Daredevil's life could be utterly destoryed. I got a little bored and wanted the good stuff to come back, but that was only because seven months is a long time when you're twelve years old (or however old I was).
Re-reading this now is great. Possibly darker than Miller's Batman work that he
Collects Daredevil #226-233, an earlier Frank Miller/David Mazzucchelli collaboration issue featuring Melvin Potter (Gladiator) getting exploited again and some art layouts with Millar's scribbled on scripts. This is a pretty good book. This pairing works well together and they manage to put the noir back into Daredevil where it belongs. This wasn't the first time Murdock got worked over by The Kingpin's manipulations and it certainly wouldn't be the last but it's probably one of the best treatm ...more
Richard Guion
This epic storyline still packs a punch nearly 30 years later! I re-read this arc in the original comic book issues I collected and still have. I think when I originally read it we had no idea about the plot - that Karen Page, Daredevil's first soap opera love interest from the first 50 odd issues, divulged his secret identity as Matt Murdock. This information quickly makes its way to the Kingpin, who goes about destroying Murdock's life in a very thorough manner. Murdock has everything stripped ...more
I guess this was considered "edgy" when it first came out. It's Frank Miller's typical crime story diluted for the sensibilities of the Marvel universe. It's a good story, but I think it's over-hyped.
I'll never forget the first time I read this. I was an impressionable young 16 year old, recently hooked on The Dark Knight Returns, Year One, and the handful of earlier DD issues that I could inexpensively scrounge up. I sat cross-legged on the couch in the family living room, reading in rapt silence. The ending of that first issue (" shouldn't have signed it.") hit me so hard that I got up, shuffled around the house, shell-shocked, for several minutes, then sat down again and didn't move ...more
A really well-executed and compelling story that stands on its own. There are some eye-rolling story elements (witness Matt Murdock's junkie-whore ex girlfriend who sells him out for a fix, then goes to find him so he'll save her from the nasty Latin American men who are exploting her), but neither Frank Miller's craziness nor the grim-and-gritty '80s comics aesthetic had descended into total cliche at this point. And David Mazzucchelli is an absolute master.

(Also, for some reason, I really like
Vinton Bayne
This was a great read. The art in this volume is beautiful, I loved it, it's everything comic book art should be in my opinion. The story is a heated, hectic thrill ride, displaying wonderful human emotion. I really want to give it five stars, and up till the end I thought I would, up till then my only complaint was the over-abundance of narrative text boxes over informing you on every page. That negative mark is easily forgiven since every comic back then had those, it was the norm then. The pa ...more
As a kid, I got to know the Marvel U primarily through reading the backs of Marvel trading cards and making up stories in my head based on the art. Whenever I saw Kingpin, I couldn't figure out why he was so threatening. It was actually a tad frustrating, seeing a villain who appeared to just be a boring, large human in a suit with such overpowered stats. The X-Men had their own Saturday morning cartoon, and everybody had cool, brightly coloured powers. The fact that this fat businessman was per ...more
I'm just winging it here on history and nostalgia, but for those who might be binging on Netflix's Daredevil this weekend (like me), I'm pretty sure this is the go-to plotline the script writers are basing it on. I had to root through boxes to find my old comics, but sure enough this Frank Miller-written story holds up despite the obvious time-stamp of 1986, the old-school pen & ink art, and an antiquated moral editing for mass consumption back then.

For me, I was 13 years old when this stor
An action-packed return by writer Frank Miller to the man without fear, with David Mazzuchelli on art. It's definitely a change from the three volumes of Miller-penciled DD, but it's not a step down at all! What has become a bit stale are Miller's conservative politics resulting in one-dimensional, unrepentantly evil bad guys and female characters who are there to be rescued by, betray or care for the male heroes. Between sister Maggie and Karen Page, there's even literal MADONNA/WHORE character ...more
Once again Miller "reboots" a character. This time he takes away everything that Matt Murdock has considered a safe haven. This is about his deconstruction and rebirth as Daredevil the blind superhero.

Among the comics I own most certainly a little gem.
Let's play 'how many horrible things can we do to Matt Murdock before he goes mad'.
(Review contains spoilers)

I am a huge Frank Miller fan, he brings a certain maturity to comic book worlds and Daredevil : Born Again would be enjoyed by anyone who loves a good crime drama, regardless of whether they like superheroes or not. While reading Born Again, I was immediately transported to 1980s New York City, a time and place that I know well; having been living here my whole life. Frank Miller's descriptions and Mazzucchelli's artwork bring the darkest parts of the city to life, and
Richard Barnes
Just about perfect - from the heat-drenched beginning as Karen Page sells her soul for a shot of heroin, to the rain-lashed finale in New York, writer and artist are in rare and sublime harmony.

So many superbly executed scenes, the wonderful effect of a top down splash page as Murdock disintegrates, the awesome sequence as we watch the Kingpin muse on Murdock's supposed death then the tremor as he repeats "there is no corpse", eventually leading to his constrained rage as he realises that a Man

Konečně v UKK vyšlo i tohle poměrně povedené a zásadní dílo Franka Millera.
Občas si pokládám otázku, jak je možné že Bendis, Miller i Brubaker psali Daredevila
každý úplně jinak, a přitom stejně. Respektive to stejně nakonec dalo tu správnou pozici noiru,
špinavého superhrdinství a hrdiny, který se vždy nechá zlomit jen proto aby vstal. Protože jen muž bez naděje, je mužem beze strachu.
Miller si nebere servítky a tahle poměrně temná kapitola Murdockova života začíná stejně temně jako skončí. A
Daredevil - Born Again - first Daredevil I have read and I knew nothing at all about him or his powers other than there was a shit looking film out from a few years ago. PIcked this up from the library after hearing people rave about it online and seeing Frank Miller's name on the front, though sadly, he hasn't illustrated it. Some old shag-piece of Daredevils reveals his identity and Kingpin has a field day making his life a living hell. The start of the book was right up my street, pretty grim ...more
Jevron McCrory
Without a doubt, simply put, the BEST superhero comic book story I have EVER read!

Leave your reservations about this merely being a comic book at the door. This story is gut wrenchingly emotional and surprisingly realistic.

It's ultimately, as all the best superhero stories are, about the man behind the mask and the depths he is willing to go in order to protect all that he holds dear.

It's a bleak, VIOLENT story with bitter undertones yet, as the story concludes, our blind hero far worse off than
Started out as a five. Was going great and then the avengers and nuke show up. It became a sloppy storyline and the illustration of captain America was elementary at best. Bummer because the majority of the book was great.
