Review by mikewick
If only all the superheroes could have such a talent as Frank Miller re-writing their origin story, with a fantastic artist like John Romita Jr. working alongside. This story is classic Miller, and you can easily see hints of his more gritty Sin City series simmering underneath the story of a hard-luck kid brought up blind in Hell's Kitchen. The only thread of the tale that could have used a little more fleshing out would be Kingpin; his empire of crime brings about the main point of conflict but the actual character seems a bit one-dimensional. Otherwise not much to complain about here: a strong origin story with a ton of noir.

So, as a kid, Daredevil gets hit by his dad, who is then killed. He then grows up to beat up on other people, as an adjunct to his life as a lawyer. In-between he has hot sex with Elektra, who also likes to beat up other people, but who is "bad". Gee, thanks Frank Miller!
Review by aadyer
A very solid entry into the Daredevil canon from Frank Miller, which addresses the origins, and development of the early part of the Daredevil story. The arc proceeds from him starting as a young man in Hell's Kitchen to his development into a fully fledged superhero on the way. Convincing, gripping and realistic, this is quality work and worth looking at.
