Daredevil by Frank Miller & Klaus Jason Omnibus (New Printing)
About this deal
Frank Miller used every issue he had on this run to tie into the last one he wrote and made everything connected. In the final fist fight in the subway DeeDee has a chance to get rid of the bastard for good, with a little help from NYC railways. Waiting for that moment when I needed a guaranteed winner to wash the taste of mediocrity out of my mouth. One about personal profit and interests, spent passions and ideals, an underworld network spreading its tentacles throughout the city like a Kraken, and personal relationships reaching from dysfunctional to exploitative.
As for the omnibus itself, well, look: if you've read more than 1 comic by now, you've probably heard of this run. A lot of small plots working, like Matt and his girlfriend and her company, Foggy and Matt getting a new office, dealing with the Punisher and dealings with Black Widow. However, I enjoyed this book much more when Frank Miller took over solo writing duties starting with the introduction of Elektra. I also really enjoyed the lettering techniques, especially when used as background, communicating onomatopoeias in a way that doesn't distract from the foreground interactions.I'm also a huge sucker for the wide, hyper saturated color palettes of this era and this run doesn't disappoint.
and it disappoints that the 'Devil's Advocate' letters pages are missing but the oversize, bright white pages, production values and extras (a good 60 odd pages) make up for this.Anyhow, as you can see from the image above, Deedee's cultural insensitivity pays in a pivot moment, so all's well what ends well.
