Brubaker.Although Miller created most of the biggest impact on his storyline..Brubaker really defined DD.He kept his showings on a consistent level.He made DD look human.He wasn't fighting Gods,Unlimited Class characters,Powerful demons and a whole host of characters he really has no business fighting and especially not winning.He made DD's villains a match for him so that it really seemed as if DD had his work cut out for him with each battle.I think DD's writing has always been good though even the PIS stuff.Every street leveler needs that stuff once in a while.

Ed Brubaker so far, but I haven't read any of Andy Diggle's run at this point.

Ed Brubaker but then again his run is the only one i read. >_> besides Diggles three issues.

Frank Miller, but the Bendis and Brubaker runs were awesome.

Brain Michael Bendis (before he got greedy). I think it was during his run that we got to see Matt ram Wilson Fisk with a car, while battering him in Hell's Kitchen. I hate how the current Daredevil doesn't have the same dark and gritty vibe it used to have.

Miller gots my props for giving DD new life. He kind of recreated the character.
But my personal favorite run is Brubaker's.

Thankfully, DD is one of those characters who are not the main characters in big events, or he doesn't appear to 4 titles in a month, but he had some great runs. Miller, Bendis, Brubaker and now Waid.

Mark Waid (so far)

In the order they worked on the character: Miller, Bendis, and Brubaker. Each had moments which surpassed the others, but overall, I think Miller (quite obviously) did more for the character than either of the other two writers, Bendis took it and ran with is, laying the groundwork for Bru, who (amazingly enough) upped the grit factor and actually had Matt serve time in prison while later reincorporating something that was long absent from the book...NINJAS!!!

Miller & Bendis!

I am also enjoying Waid's current run, despite it not being so dark. I think that it's a nice change.

Miller is my favorite Daredevil writer, but I like Bendis a lot too.

On a side note, my least favorite is Kevin Smith. The first arc of volume 2 was a bad imitation of Born Again.

It has nothing to do with Born Again and didn't try to beanything like that. It was not the story it was telling. It ended an era in Daredevils life. It also had a subplot but wasn't real real the same as born again. It has more hoomage to Kraven Last Hunt than Born Again.

I kind of agree but I still enjoyed it.Denny O'neal to me is another underrated Daredevil writer though

@daredevil21134: Yeah I did enjoy the Crossbow and Gael story. The hole Irish and British storyline was interesting especially because Matt Murdock is Irish-American. However it is probably a too hot a potato that Marvel dare to deal with it again. It could more easily go under the radar in the 80's than now.
