Now that I've finally read enough major runs, here's my personal ranking of them, along with my pros and cons of each. Sorry if any of this is controversial. (I love most of the runs)

I've roughly ranked these from favourite to least favourite. Honestly though, I only outright dislike one particular run.

  1. Bendis:

This wasn't my first run (that was Miller), but this was the run that cemented my love for the character. Maybe I was too generous, but I don't know. Sometimes a run is iconic for good reason.

Pros

  • Alex Maleev on art duties.

  • A grounded noir tone.

  • Creativity and humour.

  • Honors the past work while forging a new style.

  • Did the massive identity reveal and actually followed through.

  • Confronts all the good and bad about who Matt is.

  • Largely isolated from wider Marvel events of the 00's.

  • Ends right when it needs to, with a fun and action packed final arc.

Cons

  • "Wake up" is absolute perfection.

  • A lot of Ben Urlich love.

  • Milla is a bit underdeveloped.

  • Matt being unpleasant can be a bit difficult.

  1. Miller

Born again was my gateway to all things daredevil. I'm Honestly amazed at how well this run still holds up. Despite my eternal love for batman, I will now happily argue that Miller on daredevil is superior to Miller on batman.

Pros

  • Absolutely era defining.

  • Born again is a flawless masterpiece.

  • Bullseye and Kingpin are spectacular.

  • Increasingly inventive art work and structured issues.

  • Major introductions of the hand, stick and elecktra.

  • A fun shift in tone, with some issues operatic and others straightly comical.

Cons

  • You technically need to slog through a lot of middling issues that Miller drew but didn't write.

  • Certain tropes and themes have aged a bit.

  • Foggy's marriage and subsequent breakdown feels very underdeveloped.

  1. Waid

I just love Waid and I love fun. I love fun with some grit that is still fun. This particular run probably has my favourite art team across all of daredevil.

Pros

  • Majestic art.

  • Bold and Largely successful efforts to make daredevil fun.

  • McDuffie was a brilliant addition.

  • A balance of epic and street level fun.

  • Noble efforts to withdraw characters like kingpin from regular use.

  • Matt is at his most purely likable here.

Cons

  • Final arc is a bit muddled.

  • A certain famous villain is revealed to be pulling strings half way through the run, and it feels a bit underdeveloped.

  1. Brubaker

Bendis was a tough act to follow. Brubaker has my eternal love due to Gotham Central.

Pros

  • Michael Lark on art is solid.

  • Daredevil in prison was a fun idea.

  • Consistently good writing.

  • Mr Fear arc was great fun.

  • Arc set in Spain was a nice change of pace.

Cons

  • Doesn't do anything new or particularly memorable.

  • Foggy's "death" is padded out and ultimately utterly meaningless.

  • Treatment of Milla feels very mean spirited and cruel.

  • I don't particularly like Dakota North and her level of focus is strange.

  • Run kind of rambles on towards the end.

  • Many plot points (like Mr Fear) fizzle out.

  • Drags Matt to a lot of misery.

  1. Chip

This run seems to be the current all time favourite run around. Which is fine. Since there's a lot of great stuff here. Here's where I get controversial and say the run lost me a lot after devil's reign finished. I should be clear, I still did love a lot of this run. The first 20 issues in particular were brilliant. It was honestly a toss between this and Brubaker. I gave the edge to brubaker, Largely because Brubaker did the whole "Daredevil in prison" plot first and much better.

Pros

  • Consistently gorgeous art.

  • Cole North was a great addition.

  • Brilliant use of Kingpin.

  • Elecktra is at her most likable here for me.

  • Daredevil reckoning with his mistakes and accidental murder were well played out.

  • Admirable and largely successful efforts to roll back a lot of the mistakes of Soule.

Cons

  • Repeats a lot of things from past runs (Daredevil in prison...again)

  • Final 14 issues get so "epic" in scope that they can get really silly.

  • Yet another "Oh no, Foggy is dead" fake out.

  • Matt possibly having a guardian angel was not only absurd, but it completely goes nowhere.

  • A baffling focus on Mike Murdoch.

  1. Soule

This is a run I would sadly say I didn't overly care for. By comic and even daredevil standards, it's fine, but seldom more than fine and Soule being obsessed with stuffing all the genies back in the bottle after Waid left an immediate bad taste for me.

Pros

  • Muse has a cool design.

  • Blindspot as a concept and Matt as a mentor was a nice idea.

  • Kingpin as mayor was entertaining.

  • The supreme court arc was a nice change of pace.

  • Muse is incredibly underwritten and anticlimactic (though he's the best thing in this run)

Cons

  • Ten fingers is a laughable villain.

  • Blindspot ultimately amounts to nothing.

  • Kingpin's decision to be mayor and how he accomplished this so suddenly are completely hand waved away.

  • The random priest who is secretly a mythological knight was absolutely ridiculous.

  • Way too much about the inhumans.

  • Dropping the tonal mess of the Mike story so late in the run was catastrophic for pacing.

  • Run ends with a well drawn but utterly exhausting Matt fake out death story.

  • Matt becomes a massive asshole again, Foggy is hostile, Mcduffie is gone and basically everything good about prior runs was eradicated.

  • The who, what, why, how and when of Matt's identity being secret again is padded out for an exhausting 20 issues and ends up feeling like a total cop out.

  1. Diggle

Little needs to be said about this run. We all know it. I tried re-reading it a couple of months back to find something worthwhile, but I just can't.

Pros

  • The run is pretty brief.

  • Decent art.

Cons

  • Matt becomes the worst person ever.

  • Demonic possession nonsense.

  • Everyone is just unpleasant.

  • Shadowland is a waste of time.

Who’s your favorite underrated DD artist? [Daredevil #26, Samnee]

As the title says; who is your favorite underrated Daredevil artist? They could have penciled in a mini, a run, or even a few covers.

My personal favorite is Chris Samnee. He captures the dynamic swashbuckling character I like Daredevil to be. He also blends the Silver Age Daredevil look with modern posing and framing. He also knows how to make dramatic scenes and really serious backdrops.

My recent attempt at drawing DD

I spent way too long on the shading. Should’ve probably drawn it on something that doesn’t have lines but whatever. What do you guys think?

Back issues

Picked up DD #284-290 in a dollar bin today at a LCS. Trying to read more of Vol 1. I have limited exposure to it. Any thoughts on these issues?

When to read women without fear?

Is it best to read before devils reign, after devils reign, in between issues of devil reign? I know the reading order here says after, but the ohc has it after issue 35 I think, and then I read somewhere that it’s a tie in.

Do the TV Blu Ray Discs have Audio Descriptions?

Asking in case anyone knows or has the disc (and could take a peak to check), but I want to make sure they have audio descriptions before getting it. I believe it was voiced by Jedediah Barton.

What were the the worst periods for Daredevil?

What were Daredevil's "flop eras" in which his stories became harder to enjoy? From what I've read I'd say its the latter of the Silver Age (When he was impersonating Mike Murdock and dating the Black Widow) and the 90s, where he was a an edgy 90 antihero with an armoured spiky costume.

Rosario Dawson loved Matt's walk of shame

"I know some folks didn't love the walk of shame that [Charlie] did on She-Hulk, but I thought that was fire. It was hilarious. You know, all is forgiven. I've had my coffee too, I get it."
