    1. This may be my second Daredevil book of this month but it's exactly the tone of narrative and kinds of storyline that strongly appeal to me. Writer Brian Michael Bendis and I have an enjoyable relationship so far in comics. I often do get invested in his X-Men titles particularly the first twenty-nine issues of All-New X-Men and his entire The Uncanny X-Men run, as well as that groundbreaking piece House of M. I only read Frank Miller's work before this one so I don't have anything else to compa [...]

    2. This book made me a Daredevil fan.A friend of mine recommended this book to me since my only experience with Daredevil is the terrible movie with Ben Affleck:And I want to be ready for how (hopefully) awesome this is gonna be:To be honest, before this book Daredevil just never seemed all that interesting to me. A blind dude with superpowers fighting crime? I mean, good for him but why should I give a shit?Bendis makes you give a shit about Daredevil.He’s not just some blind superhero, he’s a [...]

    3. The son of a prominent mob boss in Chicago muscles his way into Hell’s Kitchen with a plan to unseat The Kingpin. Shortly after taking the reins, the new guy in town outs Matt Murdock to the world as Daredevil. On the heels of dealing with this PR disaster, Matt takes a case defending The White Panther, recently accused of murder.In the last few years, I’ve become a big fan of the Man without Fear. I’ve made my way through Miller’s groundbreaking run in the 80s, Kevin Smith’s controver [...]

    4. As the Netflix television series is closely approaching, I have started on reading the Brian Michael Bendis run on Daredevil of which many would consider it as a fine rival to Frank Miller’s groundbreaking run during the eighties. During the first ultimate collection book, there are three distinct stories by Bendis, each of which are drawn by artists with their own distinct style.The first story arc “Wake Up!” revolves around Daily Bugle reporter Ben Urich’s search of the truth behind a [...]

    5. While attending Comic Con I saw a panel where Jim Lee made a joke about all the people who primarily focus on the artwork, only occasionally glancing at the bubbles to make sure they get the general premise of where it's going. This is probably why the same five or so people seem to win all the Eisner awards for writing every year. I try so many comics from the major studios, and at times the perfunctory, bland dialogue almost harkens back to the stories of Marvel artists leaving bubbles blank s [...]

    6. I used to think I disliked Bendis; turns out I was just reading the wrong Bendis books. My response to his big-time superhero books ranges from indifference (Ultimate Spider-man) to annoyance (his recent X-Men runs, any of the eleventy billion Marvel Events he's written), but his more street-level hero comics (Alias is great too) are among the best stuff Marvel's released this century. Not everything here works - the "Wake Up" story arc has some laughably overwritten narration, and the court roo [...]

    7. Oh my goodness, this is such an awesome read. The writing, the artwork (that first arc! It is gorgeous!), the overall style and the feel are just incredible. I loved this so so much.

    8. Oh, I like it.I like the various stories this collects (even though, there have been some scenes where I felt I'm missing/not understanding something) and the art is incredible. I had to laugh out loud so often while reading this. :)But, this also makes me a bit grumpy that they killed Ben Urich off in the show and that Marvel TV and Marvel movies don't get it on and do something together. *hrmpf*My favourite storyline - even though it's very hard on Matt and Foggy - is the one in which Matt get [...]

    9. I've read these before, I actually own most of the single issues and I was thinking of rereading them, but just getting this book seemed much easier.This run was my first introduction to Daredevil, so in my mind this is what Daredevil is. I'll bet I've read this whole run through at least twice, some of the issues a few more times, and some of my favorite scenes dozens of times. This was my first introduction to Bendis as a writer and to this day he remains one of my favorites. I just love his d [...]

    10. Oh, THAT'S why everyone talks about Bendis on Daredevil. Great stuff better than even a lot of the Miller Daredevil I've read, to be honest. Looking forward to reading more.

    11. It's very rare that a book this large keeps me interested (5 stars worth of interested) throughout its entirety. However, this one managed to do just that. Every issue jammed in here had the full package. Art was beautiful, story was grabbing, and there was enough action and drama to keep the wheels turning.This big book can definitely be intimidating, but I would highly recommend it to anyone interested in Daredevil, Marvel, or comic books in general.

    12. Jeśli szukacie trykotów dla dorosłego czytelnika, trykotów, w których wszystko się ładnie spina fabularnie, gdzie strona graficzna robi to czego żaden serial wam nie da, to własnie znaleźliście. Komiks, który w pełni wykorzystuje możliwości medium. Szczególnie seria rysowana przez Macka to graficzna perełka, absolutny must have dla każdego (naprawdę nie ma znaczenia, że czy do tej pory lubiłeś superheroes). Z kolei kreska Maleeva - też bardzo charakterystyczna i mroczna - [...]

    13. I'm not sure why it's taken so long for me to read this, but I'm glad I finally have. If you're unfamiliar with their work, the pairing of Bendis and Maleev is a match made in comic book heaven. I highly recommend.

    14. I'd heard good things about Bendis' Daredevil run. Actually, I'd heard great things about it, meaning my expectations were pretty big. Bendis' first issue was #16, so I figured I might as well start with #1, since it wouldn't take me that long to get there. That turned out to be a mistake, because while the first couple of issues were ok, and fun, they didn't exactly impress me. And it looked like those issues were rated about as high as the Bendis ones.So I thought, well, ok, I'm going to give [...]

    15. My favorite comic of all time, and the comic that made Daredevil my favorite superhero. What impresses most is how deftly Bendis handles character, and the balance of the inherent darkness of the story (and the darkness that has been a staple of the comic since Frank Miller) and the simple goodness of the character Matt Murdock as he struggles to deal with the reveal of his secret identity (again.)The art is, frankly, mind blowing, both from David Mack and Alex Maleev, though that last story, de [...]

    16. This volume collects too much content for me to fairly give it five-stars across the board, but it more than lives up to the rich pedigree of Daredevil's comic book history. It's easy to see why the Bendis/Maleev run is so influential, with great dialogue, smart law scenes, and a street-smart, mature aesthetic, that has helped to define the entire Daredevil world. The story is told in a-chronological Tarantino-esque chunks, first detailing the apparent death of Kingpin, leading into the start of [...]

    17. Two words for this: Best. Comic. Ever.Wait one two dammit. That was three words. Oh well, too late to go back and fix it now so I'm moving on. I was pretty blown away by the Netflix show, I got the Mark Waid book and all that because my DD knowledge was a bit lacking. It was fine, I enjoyed it and all that. But this. Wow! This was a-friggin-mazing. Granted, the first several issues were not spectacular - it was an arc about a traumatized boy and his missing father. That part was fine too, but wa [...]

    18. Wonderful.I believe, this shouldn't be a volume to grab if you are new to the world of the Man Without Fear. It is a collection you should grab if you want to rediscover who is the man who by day is Matt Murdock, lawyer and defender of the innocent, and by night goes by Daredevil, the vigilante that makes sure justice gets where needed, one way or another.A nice view on Matt's fragility, guilt, how he tries to make his two worlds coexist, how they interfere with each other, how close he often is [...]

    19. this is in fact a 3.5 star book. this book collects the first third of Bendis's run on daredevil where daredevil is outed as being Matt Murdoch. the book starts with a story about a young kid in shock and what caused this. the art of this part is painted and has a very artsy layoute second part is the story how and why daredevil's secret identity is outed and the third part is a courtroom dramae art in part 2 is very scratchy and dark, in part 3 the art is just functionale thing that stood out i [...]

    20. Never really been much of a Daredevil fan but after reading Frank Miller's take and this collection by Bendis, safe to say that I'm all in on Daredevil. This collection is a brilliant showcase of the character as well as Matt Murdock and his supporting cast. Backed up by fabulous artwork and intriguing set pieces, it's really really good.A sore point may be that some of the art is too dark and murky in some of the scenes but thats probably an artistic choice to invoke noir senseibilities but do [...]

    21. Oooooof. I bought this as a gift for my partner because of their love for Daredevil and just got around to reading it myself. Other than the Netflix series, it's my first exposure to the character. I really enjoyed these arcs, though they were painful to read for a number of reasons. I'm eager to read more Daredevil comics.

    22. Reading a few of these as a result of the excellent Netflix show. Better and more mature than expected. Some of the art is incredibly cool. The final arc in this book, about the trial of White Tiger, was a bit dull. Other than that, great collection.

    23. Długo czekałem na wydanie tego tytułu w naszym kraju. Znając tak wiele opinii, w większości zachwytów, automatycznie po otrzymaniu paczki wbiłem się w fotel i oddałem lekturze.Cóż mogę powiedzieć, ten album jest idealną reklamą dla komiksu jako medium!Bendis stworzył spójny scenariusz, skupiając się na Śmiałku jako prawdziwym człowieku a nie kartonowej postaci w czerwonym kostiumie.Pierwsze cztery zeszyty lekko wprowadzają nas w klimat. Opowieść o traumie małego chłop [...]

    24. An immense piece of work by Brian Michael Bendis. Reading this and Ultimate Spiderman allows me to see how Bendis became popular in the first place. This takes the idea of Matt Murdock having to defend his actions as DareDevil and stretches them to their natural limits, all very convincingly. It also tells an intricate tale of Wilson Fisk and mafia politics which I enjoyed very much. Add in some excellent cameos from Ben Urich, Luke Cage, Iron Fist, and Spidey and you're onto a winner. Special a [...]

    25. Straight up crime story. Dark and dirty. Top notch writing. Outstanding art. Really outstanding. Not much has been put out by marvel that is on this level. My first daredevil story and I'm not at all disappointed. Remember if you read it there's a 4 issue run that Is by a different artist and is linked to the main story but not really part of it. It's still good, I recommend it but if it's not your thing, stick with it or skip ahead to when the new art begins at issue 26 (I think) and give that [...]

    26. Komiks ten przeszedł moje najśmielsze oczekiwania. Zanim skończyłem czytać, zamówiłem drugi tom. Daredevil dołączył do Punishera. A ja zaczynam się przekonywać do komiksowych bohaterów Marvela. Może nie wszyscy są cekiniarscy i dla dzieci. Punisher, Daredevil, Czarna Wdowa (Powrót do domu) - wspólny mianownik to realizm i zredukowanie czynnika supermocy do niezbędnego minimum.
