I started this same thread on my site and included pics of every cover, which I won't repeat here, so if you want to see them all, go here:
Anyway, this topic has been on my mind since the new Bowen Designs Gladiator statue (we discuss & post pics about a lot of Bowen stuff) was produced with a very low run of 350.
This made me crazy! Why didn't people order this statue I asked? The biggest response seemed to be: "I never read anything with the character in it." I was floored! To me, this meant that the members of my site had not read Frank Miller, Brian Michael Bendis and Ed Brubaker's Daredevil runs, let alone the Silver and Bronze Age DDs and Iron Man issues in which Gladiator appeared. I guess the biggest thing that shocked me was that so many Marvel fans had never read one of Marvel's most important and great series in their publishing history.
It made me curious on a broader level, away from the small demographic of statue collectors. Are many current Marvel fans ignorant of the Frank Miller Daredevil? That's why I thought to bring this poll here. I want to know: Am I a dying breed? Has the comic reading world changed so much that today's fans haven't experienced this run that not only changed comic books forever, but still affect them to this day?
Please take the time to vote AND express your thoughts. I can't wait to read them!
