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 thriller 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 heroic heights that the medium of sequential art is capable of attaining. Apparently, there have been a couple of attempts 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 blockbuster 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!
