Despite being labelled "Daredevil by Frank Miller", a majority of this volume isn't written by him, instead collecting his early work as a Daredevil artist in the leadup to taking over writing chores; these issues, mostly written by Roger McKenzie (one by David Michelinie) are an invaluable bridge to Miller's written work, particularly in regard to the character Bullseye (there's a priceless moment where he vows to "break [Daredevil's] woman" before breaking him; the 'woman' in question is Black Widow, and we know that Bullseye will under Miller make good on his pledge (multiple times, in fact), though not with Natasha). There's an early stab at social relevance here that somewhat awkwardly marries superhero action to age discrimination.Read more ›
It works well here though, as one of the things I appreciate most about this run of Daredevil is that the crazy things keep passing through his life as a super-hero, while his private life still remains separate in many ways. Murdock has his circle of close friends, and Daredevil has his. They do intertwine at times, but at least we never see Foggy Nelson get super powers or put on a costume.
One of my favorite aspects of the Miller run (an element which continued long after he left the title) was the existence of Turk, a low-level street thug who always seemed to have the info Daredevil was looking for, and was always quick to give it up when confronted. I'll never understand why anyone told him anything, but I always got a kick out of seeing him pop up all the time just to get knocked around by Daredevil again.
This is also a great look at the rivalry between Daredevil and Bullseye, and includes the first appearance of Elektra, two of the most impactful relationships of Daredevil's life.
