My next review is, perhaps, the single greatest superhero story of all time: Daredevil Born Again, written by some guy named Frank Miller (The Dark Knight Returns, Batman: Year One, 300).
This graphic novel chronicles issues #226-233 of Daredevil vol. 1 and marked the triumphant return of Frank Miller to the series. Matt Murdock’s former lover, Karen Page, trades away his secret identity for a drug fix. Eventually this information makes its way to the Kingpin who subsequently ruins Murdock’s life. Everything from his bank account to his career and even his family have been manipulated to the point of destruction.
I don’t say this about many books, but there is not a dull moment in Daredevil Born Again. Every emotion will run through your mind as the book progresses, whether it is empathy for Matt Murdock, pity for Karen Page, or pure-hatred for the Kingpin.
I said it once and I’ll say it again, the single greatest super hero story of all time. Pick it up at all Big B locations for $19.99.
Keep fit and have fun,
