I'm a bookworm of the highest caliber! If you see me, I'll probably be reading. There's nothing I love more than finding a good book, and then sharing it with the world!

Daredevil Visionaries: Frank Miller, Vol 1

Daredevil Visionaries: Frank Miller, Vol. 1 - David Michelinie, Roger McKenzie, Frank Miller

So I enjoyed this more than I thought I would! I wasn't sure how I'd feel about earlier Daredevil stories, since I'm so used to seeing Matt inked/colored in newer styles. To be honest though, this was pretty amazing.


Frank Miller's talent for penciling is evident, from the first issue contained in this volume. He brings this gritty noir style to the story that I really ended up liking. I think my favorite part is the way that he drew Natasha, or Black Widow as you might know her. She has this distinctly curvy body, and I loved that she wasn't this stick figure of a character. Too often now that's more the style, and so I was completely enamored with her womanly physique. Plus, well, Natasha is a bad-ass.


Story wise, this was pretty solid too. The dialogue absolutely screams "Early 80's comic!" but it's pretty easy to sink into. It was cool to be able to see where Daredevil's roots came from, and by the time that Elektra came on the scene, I was sold.


This is pretty amazing! I haven't read a lot of older comics, so I'm greatly enjoying this journey.
