All things considered, it's great stuff, covering Matt's tutelage under Stick and his relationship with Elektra in college. This was originally intended to be in a graphic novel format, which means that individual issues do not start with a splash page or recaps, which makes for seamless reading. Now, like most people in the early 2000's, I barely remember the film adaptation of Daredevil starring Ben Affleck and Jennifer Gardner but everyone agrees it sucked major balls. A small point, but one where Miller took a minor detail in the origin and made it far darker, and quite needlessly so I thought.

The first third of the book is fine - it’s about as good as any retelling of Daredevil’s origins as you’ll find out there - but things really turn rotten from Foggy’s entrance onwards and the feeble Kingpin story leading to Matt putting on the tights is nonsensical slop. While lacking the emotional power of earlier stories, this is still a solid tale of action and courage. In line with that, my first impressions of the tonality and storyline of The Man Without Fear is that I think the fact that it was Miller who wrote this that it was unavoidable for me to make a little Batman connection. The truck swerves and the barrels in the back crash to the street, spilling the contents into Matt’s eyes.

He was raised by a single father, an over-the-hill prizefighter with one last chance to make it good - a chance that cost him his life! She is truly psychopathic, but when she tries to explain that to Matt, he doesn't understand or believe her.

E fain construită, o întâlnește și se iubește cu Elektra, chestii interesante (partea bună fiind că doar Elektra e supereroina pe care o întâlnește).

This is Daredevil according to Miller, the way he saw the character when he started, and here skilfully nurturing and shaping him. Niller is telling Lee, yeah, you may have done this before, but here I come along to do it all over what you'd done.

He is killed for his insubordination and Matt begins his lifelong crusade by hunting down those responsible. However, when that project never went through, Miller re-wrote it as a comic book plot for John Romita Jr, and Ralph Macchio sent it through additional revisions to ensure that it was true to the comics. But then again, every brooding vigilante who is too committed to his ideals that he has no social life whatsover is immediately drawn parallels with to Batman (the CW's Oliver Queen is essentially very Batman-esque, and I ate it up to the point I no longer felt guilty demanding more servings of it). This story can't fit in continuity because of the death of Jack Murdock: in every other telling of the origin of Daredevil and the childhood of Matt, it'always shown that his father is killer after Matt started the college, and he knows Foggy Nelson. Witness the tour-de-force origin of the Man Without Fear by industry legends Frank Miller and John Romita Jr.De hecho, es la primera parte, la que narra la infancia y adolescencia de Matt, la que más me ha gustado. The writing was so atrocious that I couldn't take anything seriously, not even prostitutes getting thrown out of windows. Chip Zdarsky’s overrated recent Daredevil run centres around Matt accidentally killing someone for the first time, which sends him into a spiral.

I was going to say that Jack probably didn't need to be tagged but it turns out he does have a couple of continuity insert appearances, including a 2007 Battling Jack Murdock mini-series! I say this as a huge Frank Miller fan, I am fond of his storytelling and his characterisation of Matt Murdock.He discovers through his training with the mysterious Stick that he can focus his other senses and perceive the world better than most sighted people. He is one of the most widely-recognized and popular creators in comics, and is one of the most influential comics creators of his generation. Yet again, Miller excels at crafting a real-life feel to the world that his characters inhabit, complemented by the gritty and roughly visuals illustrated by the all talented John Romita Jr.
