Hopefully by now, some of you have had a chance to stream some episodes of Daredevil on Netflix (as of this writing, I’ve checked out the first two episodes, think the series is absolutely stunning and one of the best things Marvel has done). I’ve obviously been writing a ton of Daredevil content both here and on ComicBook.com, so I thought I’d use this post as a bit of a link aggregator for where to find all of my Daredevil-centric writings:
Daredevil comics have been known for award-winning, genre-defining creative runs such as Frank Miller/Klaus Janson, Miller/David Mazzuchelli, Brian Michael Bendis/Alex Maleex, Kevin Smith/Joe Quesada, Mark Waid/Chris Samnee and Ed Brubaker/Michael Lark. On ComicBook.com, I selected five “under the radar runs” with the character to show some love to some other creators who have worked on Ol’ Hornhead.
Daredevil has had some famous romances … which all tend to end badly for him! On ComicBook.com check out his five greatest loves.
In case you missed it, earlier this week on ComicBook.com I ranked the 10 greatest Kingpin stories.
On ComicBook.com, check out some of the funniest moments from Daredevil’s Silver Age swashbuckling days.
On this very site, I talked about the Daredevil/Spider-Man dynamic from Jim Owsley’s “Gang War” arc in the mid-1980s.
A lookback at the fantastic one-shot “Severance Package” as found in Spider-Man: Tangled Web #4.
Ah memories… last year I talked about picking up my copy of Amazing Spider-Man #16, the first time Spider-Man and Daredevil teamed up.
In a funny twist of fate, John Romita Sr., arguably the most famous artist in Amazing Spider-Man history, first illustrated Spider-Man in an issue of Daredevil. Years later, Frank Miller, the most famous creator to have ever worked on Daredevil, first illustrated the Man Without Fear in an issue of Spectacular Spider-Man.
Everybody knows the Kingpin as a Daredevil villain, but in the 60s, he could have staked a claim to being Spidey’s arch foe.
Everybody’s favorite Daredevil story pretending to be a Spider-Man story, Peter David’s “The Death of Jean DeWolff.”
During the early days of the “Clone Saga,” J.M. DeMatteis gave us the underrated “Back from the Edge” arc starring Spidey and Daredevil.
Hi Mark, let me know if you still feel as jazzed about the series after Episode 5. I am loving parts of it…but loathing parts of it, too.
FYI: I read and enjoy your blog posts and listen to your and Dan’s AST on iTunes (not a member…yet). I know you don’t know me from Adam’s off ox, but I am dying to hear your opinion of this show after a few more episodes, especially given how you critiqued Gage on AST recently.
I’ve watched the first 2 episodes as well, liking it so far. But the Daredevil I grew up reading wouldn’t have cut someone’s face with a knife, even if a nurse was next to him. But different media=differences in characters.
The DD/Spider-Man fight at the end of the DeWolff story always bugged me a bit. Spider-Man is super-powered, Daredevil, radar senses notwithstanding, is really just a human in optimal physical condition (to borrow language used in OHTMU). He shouldn’t lose a fight to Daredevil. I suppose Peter David would say it happened because of Peter’s mental/emotional state at the time. But still, Spider-Man shouldn’t lose a fight in his own series to any other hero!
