    Including one of the most drastic costume changes in comic book history, this first volume of DD adventures features issues 1 to 21, and although there are no truly memorable villains to speak of, this is a sound set of comics that you can be sure will be entertaining Daredevil s main problem for a long time was that he didn t have any really memorable villains that he could call his own There are a few encounters with Spider Man and Ka Zar, and The Owl turns up than once, but it s only thanks to the main characters keeping things lively that this didn t turn into another short lived book Still, I enjoyed it, regardless of the poor calibre of villains.

    Man, I loved this collection Lots of talent on view, too.And, it has one of my favorite villains, the origin of Stilt Man Stilt Man Art by Wally Wood, Bill Everett, Joe Orlando, John Romita, Bob Powell, and Gene Colan Even covers I never knew by Jack Kirby.Recommended.You ll have to ignore the wooden or lack of characterization of Karen Page, though Sometimes, when dealing with stories scripted by Stan featuring Karen Page or Gwen Stacy, I think of his attractive wife, the late Joan Lee.

    It s the beginning of the Man without Fear, and it s prettyactually it s not very good The book really seems to be trying to replicate the success of Spider Man, but it just can t do it For one thing, Daredevil doesn t really have the expanded cast that Spidey does It s basically Matt, Karen, and Foggy Spider Man had a pretty big cast which enriched the stories, and Daredevil would have a hard time doing the same with such a small cast.Daredevil also falls pretty short in the villain department The Purple Man makes his first appearance, but it would be a long time before the comics code would allow such a character to truly shine The only other notable villain is The Owl, who comes off as being tired to be made to be Daredevils main nemesis, but he is pretty lackluster.Art wise the book really delivers as Bill Everett, Wally Wood, John Romita Sr , and Gene Colan handle the art chores Daredevil might not have the most interesting stories, but he sure looks good in them Not to sure I want to continue reading any of the Daredevil Epic Collections after this one He just doesn t seem like a character who got much going till Frank Miller, and that s all collected else where.

    While I do love 1960s era Marvel for its campiness and the general ability for comics from that era to reflect larger social and philosophical issues, the issues collected here do not all retain the freshness I felt while reading the original Avengers, Black Panther, or Nick Fury of S.H.E.I.L.D While all these texts have problematic elements, they represent a milestone in the evolution of the superhero in the American consciousness and often offer critiques of the world around them What leaves me feeling less satisfied with Daredevil is not for its lack of quality villains the Owl, Purple Man, Stilt Man, Namor, the Organizer, Mr Fear, and the Masked Marauder all were entertaining and or interesting characters, but that the stories themselves in the volume did not always feel as if they were communicating the same kind of symbolic depth that other issues in this collection do Because of this unevenness, some of the issues have a filler quality to them What these stories do well though is balancing the tension between Matt Murdock s life as Matt Murdock and his life as Daredevil Although at times it feels that the way Lee and his team handle Matt s character seem problematic from a disability studies perspective a perspective I am nowhere near an expert on , it is interesting reading about a superhero whose disability gives him access to abilities beyond what he would have had otherwise Sadly, like many comics from 1960s Marvel, the women who appear are fairly problematic in a way that limits their thinking to stereotypically gendered interests, with one of their few redeeming qualities being their linkage to the romance comics that predate Marvel s powerhouse pantheon of superpowered individuals.

    What a bizarre sequence of issues They re not un fun Especially as the series goes on, there s a palpable bounciness to Daredevil s adventures that s hard not to smile at And DD has some of the most well developed civilian supporting cast of any comic this side of Spider Man at this point it s melodramatic soap operatics, but the Foggy friendship and Karen love interest are at least consistent and show signs of development The villains and other threats vary, coming down most solidly on the wacky side Purple Man and even the Owl turn out to eventually be worthy foes, and there s always the Gladiator the world s first and best tough guy street thug supervillain mannequin costume tailor but the Masked Marauder, Plunderer, the Ani Men, and others who are too forgettable to note just do not cut the mustard.There s a lot said about the representation of Matt Murdock as a blind man, and for its time, I can see how it would have been ground breaking There is an awful lot of Matt using his blindness to make it seem like the notion of being heroic is ridiculous, though, and various emasculating comments made about him because of his disability It s one of those baby steps we should be glad we got, but I ll be looking forward to seeing those conventions and misconceptions slough off.

    This is where it all started Stan Lee provides most of the writing duties along with art from some iconic comic book artists Bill Everett, Wally Wood, John Romita Gene Colan The regular cast consist of Foggy Nelson the law partner of DD s alter ego, Matt Murdock Karen Page, Nelson Murdock s office secretary and love interest Notable villians are Electro, The Purple Man, The Owl, Stilt Man, The Matador, The Fellowship of Fear, Sub Mariner, The Ani Men, The Plunderer, The Ox, The Masked Marauder, The Gladiator Special guest heroes are Spider Man and Kazar The stories are a bit hokey and the battle for the attention of Karen Page between Murdoch Nelson is a bit of a snore It was still pretty cool to see where these characters came from This volume is packed with 21 issues and a few pages of some awesome drawings of penciled pages and character designs are found in the back of the book If you were to buy 21 actual comic book issues at a comic shop or EBay they would cost a small fortune but you can get them all in one book for 40 bucks Now that s a deal

    A wacky start to one of the most consistent Marvel character of all.

    The first set of Daredevil stories I particularly like the art in the Wallace Wood ones, and of course with the John Romita later ones.
