This looks really cool. If I can get a hold of issues 1 through 6 would it be worth it? Daredevil is a character who's always had my interest so an answer would be nice. Also, what of the older stuff would be the best for me to search out?

I hate to give the guy complements but Bendis's run was pretty awesome as was Brubakers which follows directly on from his. Also you need to read Born Again.

I'll be glad to have Paolo Rivera back. Marcos Martin has been doing a good job on this arc though. Loving the new Daredevil series, that "I'm Not Daredevil" sweater is hilarious

Hey paolo, We missed you on the book. Looks like I'm gonna miss marcos for at least another story arc. DD making snow angels. You can't find that anywhere else. That NOT DD sweater is awesome.

Frank Miller Collection is complete. Time to work on getting the Bendis Maleev collection now.

@ChaosAgentLoki: Bendis and Maleev's run is epic, as is Brubakers but the best is arguably frank millers as a lot of the forementioned writers story arcs use a lot of his characters and themes.

Just stay away from Andy Diggles shadowland story, nearly undid all of these writers fantastic work on DD

Yes its that bad

The first page is surprisingly funny ("I'm not Daredevil" t-shirt for the win) while the third is equally touching. Love this book.

I haven't read the Shadowland Daredevil tie-ins, but I'd argue that other than being really anticlimatic, Shadowland wasn't that bad.

As others have said, Miller's work on the character is MUST READ STUFF and ranks among the all time great works in comics. Bendis/Brubaker's time on the book are also definitely stuff you'll want to have read. As for the current run by Waid with Rivera/Martin goes, I must say it's month in and month out one of the best comics on the stands. It's a totally fresh take on Matt and very new reader friendly. Also the art work by both Rivera/Martin is nothing less than stellar. 1-6 are definitely books it would behoove you to invest in RIGHT NOW!

I love how he's wearing a shirt that says "I'm not Daredevil".I also love how he's making a snow angel on the cover. 
 Also Rivera's art is growing on me.

Wow, those last two pages were intense. I could see these pages equally powerful with or without any dialogue panels. Thank you for the great preview. Future installments of this series cannot arrive soon enough.
