'It's a tightrope that's tougher to walk than it might first appear. It would be so easy to turn this into such a straight up super-hero book that it may as well be Spider-Man. But, again, if that's the approach, then why not just write Spider-Man? Likewise, it would be equally easy to do nothing but street level crime stuff, but again, I'm not as good a crime writer as Bendis. I'm not as good a crime writer as Brubaker. Why go that route? From my point of view, this seems like the first time in 15 years that somebody has given me the keys to the car and said "do what you wanna do", and I have, and it's succeeded. Generally, I do what I think is best to reinvent a franchise and write for the non-hardcore audience, and the nerd rage is off the charts.' -- Mark Waid

D.G. Chicester's DAREDEVIL run had some great stuff like LAST RITES. But he also had things like FALL FROM GRACE and TREE OF KNOWLEDGE. It was part of the "Matt fakes his death and uses the alias Jack Batlin" era fans like to ignore, even though that led to Foggy finding out The Secret. KNOWLEDGE also had characters getting very paranoid about the internet. The Scott McDaniel art is good, though.

DAREDEVIL #353 is not when Foggy Nelson learned Matt Murdock was Daredevil, but it was the first time they discussed it. This was also the start of Karl Kesel's run on the book, and one of the times Marvel tried a "Daredevil lightens up a bit" post-Miller storyline.

You see everything in an outline? )

I didn't post this during this during my initial 'Bendis' Daredevil' series but I figured I would now. It's his first Daredevil story that he did and it was a stand-alone arc that took place before his main run began (there was another writer's arc in between the two). It's considerably different in style and tone than the rest of his work.

As a warning, this story deals with child abuse.

Back in 1997, Marvel did Flashback Month, where various titles were given #-1 issues, all set some time before the fateful rocket flight that created the Fantastic Four. Artist Gene Colan and writer Joe Kelly wrote of Matt Murdock's arrival at college and when he first met Foggy Nelson.

'Golden Age' is one of my favorite arcs from Bendis' and Maleev's run on Daredevil. It's just a great combination of writing from Bendis and art from Maleev. It's also largely a stand-alone story so you just need to be familiar with the basic concept of Daredevil being outed as Matt Murdock and later declaring himself the 'Kingpin' of Hell's Kitchen.

Not related to Bendis's run but most of Frank Miller's run on Daredevil is available on Comixology right now for 99 cents an issue for one day only here. It includes Miller's run up until #184, as well as 'Born Again' and 'Man Without Fear'. Just a heads up.

For those on the fence, the Daredevil Comixology Sale ends tonight at 11 pm EST.

Also as you probably know the new Netflix show stars tomorrow. I would like to ask that people refrain from discussing spoilers in the comments for these posts just for the benefit of those trying to catch up.
