My celebration of Daredevil’s 50th anniversary makes its way over to my guest blogging gig at Comics Should Be Good with the Daredevil: Man Without Fear miniseries getting the Gimmick or Good? treatment. Each of the five issues of this series is adorned with gold embossing. Meanwhile, the mini retells Daredevil’s origins by working in some of the characters/mythology first introduced during Frank Miller’s run on Daredevil when he first joined the book in 1979. Was this miniseries a gimmick or was it good?

This is the best kind of retcon/origin story; the kind that feels like it was always there, and the kind that’s just really well-done and looks fantastic.
