Daredevil by Frank Miller & Klaus Jason Omnibus (New Printing)
About this deal
So this big ass book, they call those Omnibus, starts off with Frank Miller as actually just a artist. But a couple of issues in he becomes a plotter too. And by about 7 or 8 issues in he becomes the actual writer of this series while Klaus Janson continues the excellent art with Miller's penciling. What really worked well here with the two is both are artist and Frank Miller, when he was on the top of his game, was a hell of a writer/plotter. This is a handsome collection of Frank Miller's initial run of Daredevil. However, the whole run is not created equally.

I don't think I've ever seen Matt so grim...so cold-blooded. He's changed. He's not the same man I used to know."I won't spoil anything despite this being old but the amount of world building, chaos, and sadness this book contains is awesome. Even if the middle is near perfection I still think the ending of this Omnibus holds up extremely well too. Getting close to the end Matt becomes more joking, but not over the top, and it's refreshing. The fights can be brutal as hell, but also over the top and silly like Stiltman fight. The very last issue too is great, and a good deconstruction on superheroes.

This issue starts with young Miller experimenting with one of his future tropes: narration by tv screens!
The artwork of this leaves something to be desired. It's by no means horrible, but it could've been much better. Some of the artwork in this is just outright goofy.
