BORN AGAIN - FRANK MILLER & DAVID MAZZUCCHELLI'S DAREDEVIL - PART ONE...
When DAREDEVIL #227 hit the newsagents' spinner-racks and
comicbook shelves back in 1986, readers sat up and took notice. Over
the course of seven issues, the story of MATT MURDOCH's complete
professional and psychological disintegration at the scheming hands of
The KINGPIN unfolded in a taut, suspenseful superhero action thril-
ler that demonstrated just how comics of this kind should be written -
and that FRANK MILLER was just the man to write them.
DAVID MAZZUCCHELLI's art was moody and magnificent,
and is a perfect example of the heights that the medium of sequential
art is capable of attaining. Apparently, there have been a couple of at-
tempts to raise interest in a movie adaptation of this classic series, but
nothing ever materialised and the film rights have now reverted back
to MARVEL STUDIOS. We can all only live in hope that a block-
buster movie of this epic adventure will one day reach cinema
screens and be a massive hit like The AVENGERS.
In the meantime, you'll have to console yourselves with our two
part cover and image gallery scanned from the original comics. The
series was released in a collected edition back in 1987 and again only
a few short years ago, so you should yet be able to pick up a copy from
your local comicbook store - or eBay, even. If you don't have these
classics in your collection, then you're really missing out, man -
do something about it today!
See you in Part Two!
