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.

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.

This is a repost of a series I did way back in 2011. I am sharing it again for two reasons.

1. For the benefit of potential newcomers curious about Daredevil because of the upcoming Netflix series.

and 

2. Comixology is right now having a 99 cent sale on Bendis's entire Daredevil run here. I know a lot of people last time said these posts got people curious about checking out the title so here's your best chance if you want to read them at a cheap price.

For those getting the bundle it also includes 'Wake Up' which was a stand-alone arc Bendis did with David Mack (which in my opinion isn't as good as the main run) as well as the 'End of Days' miniseries which basically functions as a potential "last Daredevil story". Finally in case you decide to just mass order everything I should warn you that for some reason David Mack's "Echo: Vision Quest" arc is part of the sale (but not in the bundle) which in my opinion is the comic equivalent of watching paint dry.

'In dealing with medication over the years and trying to figure out the best cocktail of pills to treat my depression, one of the most uplifting things I heard came from a physician who was listening to me worry about side effects. He said, “The whole goal of taking medication is to minimize the side effects as much as possible so you can best live a normal life.” And that goes for non-medicinal cognitive therapy, too. In other words, don’t feel like you have to accept that there are crippling, inescapable side effects to treatment– that’s giving up control.' -- Mark Waid
