It BLOWS AWAY Frank Miller's previous work on Daredevil, and in my opinion even tops Batman: Year One or Batman: The Dark Knight Returns. I've read hundreds of Marvel comics, from the 60's to the present day, but none come close to being as epic as Daredevil: Born Again. It is really that good. Miller's writes drama and tension as good as the best Hollywood films. and Miller summarizes David Mazzucchelli's art in a blurb at the end of the story quite nicely:
"It's almost criminal how easy David makes it to write a script. He makes a three-dimensional stage of the individual panel, complete in authentic detail, nonetheless uncluttered and utterly readable. He creates actors whose dramatic range is startling, whose best and most compelling moments are wordless. He's talked of writing his own comics. Keep your eye out for them. I will. - Frank Miller, 1987"
(Incidentally, Mazzucchelli did in fact write and draw his own graphic novel, Asterios Polyp, which was released in 2009 to stellar reviews. Although I wouldn't know since I haven't read it yet... again, I'm very cheap.)
The hardcover is of good quality too. The only problem I have is how Marvel collected the issues. This book contains Daredevil #226-233, which were all done by Miller and Mazzucchelli. But since Born Again starts in issue #227, Marvel decided to stick issue #226 all the way at the end of the book, which doesn't make sense to me. Although not officially part of the story, #226 works as a prelude to Born Again, introducing some characters and elements that play a pretty big role. So I highly recommend going to the back of the book and reading that issue first. Be careful not to spoil yourself by coming across the last few pages of the main story. This is the only problem I have with an otherwise amazing collection.
My final advice: if and when you buy this book, read it all at once. You can thank me later.
