Favorite issue of DD ever?

#1 Posted by derf_jenkins (359 posts) - - Show Bio

Hello Daredevil fans...what would you say is your favorite issue ever in a DD series? I'm going with #181 during the Miller run. Any other thoughts?

I'm going to cheat a bit and say my favorite issue of DD was actually New Avengers 'Fear Itself' vol. 2 issue 16.
In the issue Daredevil takes on, solo of course, a large number of robotic-exoskeleton wearing nazis.  He not only stops an attack on Avengers Mansion, but he saves the lives of Dani Cage and Squirrel girl.   It's, quite simply, a very kewl issue that was mostly about Dare Devil.
 
Luke Cage makes the following comment..something like, "People gonna ask: is Daredevil Avengers material?  In my opinion, the question is:  are the Avengers Daredevil material?"
 
The issue has excellent art, fight scenes, and great dialogue...

@FadeToBlackBolt:

Yeah, …168 makes sense...I don't think I have read 233.

God, theres too many to name. I used to have a ton of those old ones and the DD & Black Widow books (Those and a MASS of Power-Man and IronFist comics made up the bulk of my collection for a good long time)

Off the top of my head, Daredevil #200

The fight, the lead up, Matt reminiscing about his dad, the wrestling arena, (the fact he reversed Bullseye's dagger throw whilst wearinga freaking cast and send it roight back at'im!) I remembered reading it more often than most of the Daredevil books. Also, that cover art. Goddamn. Although, I gotta say I that it sits alongside Daredevil #168, Daredevil #181, Daredevil #190 Daredevil #191 as being my favourites (though sadly I dont have any of my DD books after loaning them to a friend years ago who subsequently 'lost' them >_>' )

Really? I alwasy found the last issues of Born Again weird and misplaced. After the reuniting with Karen Page the hole story with Captain America and the soldier just seemed odd.

I will mention to issues that aren't that normal (like for instance Daredevil #168 or Daredevil #191). The first one is Daredevil #219. It is a story about Matt (or is it somebody else, personally i believe so others have said it isn't) goes to New Jersey and fight a corrupt police officer. The hole point of the story is more that DD is within Matt and he doesn't need his costume to fight. DD is only on the front cover and not even in the issue. If you want to know more about my thoughts and how the issue is connected to the daredevil mythos you can read my blog http://www.comicvine.com/myvine/tupiaz/daredevil-issue-219-and-the-daredevil-mythos/87-85991/ The other one is Daredevil #265 a tie in to the X-Men inferno story. New York is hell but all of the New Yorkers goes around like everything is ok. DD fight some of the monsters and I believe he is mute for the entire issue. The whole vibe in this issue is just great. Two rather odd DD stories, but that is also why they a some of my favorites. Odd, good and still have a DD feel to it.

I haven't read close to as many issues as you guys so I can't so much comment here but I really liked Issues 16-19 in Volume 2 of Bendis' run with David Mack on art. The main part that I like about it is the artwork. Penciling a book is one thing, but what Mack does is art. And I also know that it may be sacrilegious because I know a lot of you older fans don't like Waid's run, but I really like it and I think the annual and also the short arc with Mole Man were good. I'm still building up my collection of DD books and I plan to continue. After I get Volume 3 of Bendis' run, I'm going to get Volume 2 of Miller's run and start getting Marvel Essentials Daredevil, I only wish they were in color.
