More About the Author

Frank Miller is one of the seminal creative talents who sparked the current gigantic sub-industry of motion pictures featuring comic book- initiated product. A sub-industry which had become a super-industry. This most profitable aspect of this millennium's film production, now producing an annual flow of box office profits in the Billions of dollars, was launched when Frank Miller's graphic novel re-take on the classic comic book hero, Batman, resulted in an entertainment industry-wide reconsideration of the genre in the deeper and darker vision Miller brought to it.

Miller re-defined the presentation of comic book characters and heroic fiction with his grand-daddy of graphic novels, "The Dark Knight." This revolutionary work
not only kicked off the series of Batman films based on his redefinition, but a craze for such material that has thrown dozens of such heroes into multiple film franchise heaven. Certainly chief among these has been Miller's uniquely classical take on superheroic narrative, "300," and his "Sin City" books, each of which entered motion pictures with historic successes, and each now in Miller's creative phase of achieving its highly-anticipated sequel. Miller's co-direction of "Sin City" has made him one of the hottest
directors... as well as a guiding creative force...for the new genre. Or one might say "super genre."

Miller's latest graphic novel, Holy Terror, is his first original graphic novel in ten years. Join The Fixer, a brand new, hard-edged hero as he battles terror in the inaugural release from Legendary Comics.

I'm not gonna try to sell you on this book 'cause if you're looking at it you're already a Frank Miller fan. So... before I purchased this book I wanted to know what issues were contained therein! Above there are claimes this book contains DD issues #158 thru #191; this is only sort of true...

This most wonderful book ACTUALLY contains:

Daredevil #158 - 161 and #163 - 191 as well as the DD story from

What If...? #34!

Cool bonuses are: ALL of Franks DD trade paperback reprint covers, thumbnails and color guides for issue #190, a new introduction and an 1981 interview w/ Frank and Klaus,Frank's DD page from Fantastic Four Roast #1, AND Frank's intries from the Offcial Handbook of the Marvel Universe!

You know you want it True Beliver!

'Nuff said!

If you enjoyed 300, Sin City and Batman: The Dark Knight Returns, witness where Frank Miller got his start. Collecting Miller's historic, early 1980's run, the Daredevil Omnibus presents one of the greatest examples of serialized superhero comics. While the collection starts off slowly, it quickly build up steam with the introduction of Elektra, through the clashes with Bullseye and culminating with the conflict against the Kingpin.
Along with inker, embellisher, penciller and colorist Klaus Janson, Frank Miller created one of the greatest runs in this character's history, perhaps even overshadowing Stan Lee, Bill Everett and Wally Wood's work from the sixties. This may be the only example where character was so successfully reinvented, surpassing even what these great creators had done before. Miller's style and design mature significantly as the issues progress, while the stories change from standard Marvel fare to the first modern day "crime comic". Further, the recoloring (seemingly based on the original palate) brings vibrant new life to this run.
Additionally, the Omnibus contains an extensive interview, Miller's pencil breakdowns and Janson's colorguides for issue 190, giving a rare glimpse into the creative process. A steal at twice the price.

Format: Hardcover
The 2013 reprint of Frank Miller's Daredevil features a sewn-binding, which is an improvement over the first printing. Unfortunately it suffers from some poor decisions by the publisher. The cover material while looking very sharp because of the cool DD artwork being printed directly on it, is actually quite prone to scratches and shelfware. The paper is the new cheaper, thin paperstock Marvel started using earlier this year for its omnibus line--I'm not a fan of it. Worst of all is Marvel once again used the re-colored versions of these isues. Fans who bought these books off the spinner racks will notice the new computerized coloring right away. While not as bad as the coloring on the Neal Adams Batman series, seeing Miller's Daredevil printed in computerized gradients of red and orange was very disappointing.

The stories written by Miller are quite good and showcase some of the best Daredevil stories of not only the 1980s, but of all time. If Marvel had taken greater care in the actual craftsmanship of this omnibus, I would have easily rated this book 5 stars.

5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Adam B. on January 25, 2014
Format: Hardcover
As I got into comics relatively recently (in my 20s, I am now 26), Daredevil quickly became one of my favorites, as even more than Batman, his history has been one of unforgiving tragedy (heck, even his power is at the cost one of our most valuable senses). He has a strongly knit supporting cast, great rogues, and romances that don't feel quite so forced (and therefore insulting of the audience's intelligence).

However, as a modern reader, I always hesitate to dive into many of the early 80s story lines in comics (and Miller has started to go crazy in his age), as far too many have not aged well despite their constant recommendations by longtime fans.

But finally, after reading all of the modern runs I wanted more and gave in. Note that I actually read these stories contained here in another collection before ultimately buying the omnibus, and surprisingly they hold up well. These stories legitimized villains which would later become mainstays of the series. Bullseye, the Gladiator, and the Kingpin were all improved upon here and their existences justified. The lethal love interest of DD, Elektra, was debuted here, and has been a mainstay ever since...it is easy to see why when reading this collection.

However, my favorite arc in this collection comes from an earlier arc in which Ben Urich is investigating Daredevil. The pacing is perfect and every character feels three dimensional, and this storyline just flows so well from his journalistic viewpoint, so much so that it seems to have been borrowed for DD stories to come by many other writers. Despite this being a good set of stories, there is some seriously dated material here: Stiltman should have never existed, and his appearance here does nothing to change that.

This is a really great collection of stories. I was never a Daredevil fan, but I moved onto this after reading Batman: Year One and Dark Knight Returns. I can say I enjoyed it even more than those!

These stories have a dark and gritty edge, but aren't melodramatic and brooding like works that are derivative of Miller's. They still retain the charm and levity that I read comics for.
