Essential Reading

#1 Posted by Buckshot (18915 posts) - - Show Bio

I want to read some Daredevil. Can anyone tell me what I should read? Any stories I just can't miss or that exemplify all the best qualities of Daredevil? I'd prefer books that don't require me to know too much of his history, but if the comics are just so good that it's worth catching up, lemme know.

Death of Elektra of course, and The Born Again arc. Definitely the Born Again arc. That is just amazing.

You should definitely read Bendis' run on Daredevil.

Daredevil vol. 2 #16-19, 26-50, 56-81

In my opinion this is the best DD and the best Bendis, Actually these are some of my all time fav comics. Also, The Man Without Fear mini by Miller and JR JR that was published in the 90s. Also again, I forget who the writer was ... I think it was Angel something or other... but it was the DD Inferno story that ran during the 80s.

Are you thinking of Ann Nocenti?

I read 16-19 and The Man Without Fear. Liked em both. I thought the Ben Urich story was long and drawn out (getting through that art was a trip) but at the end I thought it was worth it. Man Without Fear was great, blasted through that easily and enjoyed it. Looking for the other stuff.
