I love Daredevil, and this is the best Daredevil story I've ever read. The 80s were just too good for comics..

Going online and seeing this tale of Daredevil recommended in alot of places i decided to give it a shot. The art is great and the story is very very good. Growing up i had only known Daredevil threw the Spiderman cartoon series and the movie was an epic fail. But Daredevil was always an interesting character to me, a blind attorney turned vigilante in Hell's Kitchen he was also a level higher in my books than other superheroes who were brown gifted (ala Superman) because he was a character you could somewhat relate to because he also experienced human traumas.

Overall i would recommend this to any reader who is into the superhero graphic novel genre.

All you need to know: BUY THIS BOOK July 23 2009
By F.E. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I had heard a lot about Daredevil: Born Again and how amazing it was, and I didn't doubt it. I'm a huge fan of Frank Miller's run on Daredevil, but I always put off buying this book because I'm really cheap like that. So when I finally got the nerve to pony up and buy it, I was little worried it wouldn't live up to the hype. I'm here to tell you, believe the hype.

It BLOWS AWAY Frank Miller's previous work on Daredevil, and in my opinion even tops Batman: Year One or Batman: The Dark Knight Returns. I've read hundreds of Marvel comics, from the 60's to the present day, but none come close to being as epic as Daredevil: Born Again. It is really that good. Miller's writes drama and tension as good as the best Hollywood films. and Miller summarizes David Mazzucchelli's art in a blurb at the end of the story quite nicely:

"It's almost criminal how easy David makes it to write a script. He makes a three-dimensional stage of the individual panel, complete in authentic detail, nonetheless uncluttered and utterly readable. He creates actors whose dramatic range is startling, whose best and most compelling moments are wordless. He's talked of writing his own comics. Keep your eye out for them. I will. - Frank Miller, 1987"

(Incidentally, Mazzucchelli did in fact write and draw his own graphic novel, Asterios Polyp, which was released in 2009 to stellar reviews. Although I wouldn't know since I haven't read it yet... again, I'm very cheap.)

The hardcover is of good quality too. The only problem I have is how Marvel collected the issues. This book contains Daredevil #226-233, which were all done by Miller and Mazzucchelli. But since Born Again starts in issue #227, Marvel decided to stick issue #226 all the way at the end of the book, which doesn't make sense to me. Although not officially part of the story, #226 works as a prelude to Born Again, introducing some characters and elements that play a pretty big role. So I highly recommend going to the back of the book and reading that issue first. Be careful not to spoil yourself by coming across the last few pages of the main story. This is the only problem I have with an otherwise amazing collection.

My final advice: if and when you buy this book, read it all at once. You can thank me later.

Miller's best work. July 20 2010
By C. Michael Hall - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
While Frank Miller's name is attached to some genuine comics classics (the Sin City series, Batman: Year One, and Batman: The Dark Knight Returns, to name a few), his work on Daredevil: Born Again is, in my estimation, his finest ever. The narrative is flawlessly tight, with not a single page wasted. The characters live and breathe, and the intensity of their emotions is palpable. This being a superhero comic book (albeit one much more grounded in reality than most), there are the requisite action scenes, and they're explosive as can be, but there are quiet triumphs as well, with characters overcoming inner obstacles as well as external foes. Miller's characterization of his villain, the Kingpin, sets a standard for the character which has never been equalled; even a supporting character like J. Jonah Jameson (a two-dimensional blowhard who has plagued Spider-Man for decades) is given a voice at once familiar and revelatory. The unique alchemical mixture of Miller's words and Mazzuchelli's art is the absolute pinnacle of comics storytelling, and serves to remind the reader just how good comics can be when the right creators work on the right project. While many would cite The Dark Knight Returns as Miller's best, Born Again captures the title: DKR is a stellar piece of work, but part of its power stems from the reader's familiarity with the legendary Batman. Born Again, on the other hand, is so brilliant that one need not even know who Daredevil is to enjoy it. It's that good.

Best version available April 29 2012
By Tanner - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I'm not gonna bother explaining how good the story is. Born Again is one of Daredevil's most famous stories, and Frank Miller is legendary for his Daredevil writing.
What I can say is that this specific edition of Born Again is amazing. If you want to own Born Again, buy this one. Here's why:
As you may know, the original comic books in this series were printed on thin newsprint paper. Some die hard fans might say that's the only way to read it. I own the original comics, and I compared the pages to the art in this book. The pages in this book are thick, high quality white paper, so any part that was light greyish white in the comics will be white here. Also, the colors are much more solid. Where the colors look slightly pale and faded in the comics, the books presents them vibrantly. This doesn't mean the art was redone, it just means it's being printed in a much more expensive process. The colors still look matte, the way they did in most classic comics from the time. They aren't glossy like modern comics, and the book really feels like something that came from the '80s like it should.
The cover art is all there with original colors, Marvel logos with copyright 1985 Marvel Comics Group under them, 75 cent price tag, issue number and month, etc. The only thing missing is the black spider-man head logo that was being printed on the bottom left hand corner of the covers for some reason. Some are marked "Marvel 25th anniversary". Very cool. In the back of the book the cover art is printed minus all the logos and numbers.
There are then 24 pages of original pencil only drawings of pages from the story. This is followed by the typed script from Daredevil #233.

Born Again is still hot March 4 2009
By João Paulo Hammes - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I liked it very much. I have no words to decribe the way I feel every time I take a look at this story. I consider "Born Again" the biggest creative moment of Frank Miller. No doubt you will like it too. The book is well-made, the paper is very good and there are some sketchbooks. Buy it, don`t be crazy of losing it.

My First Time With Frank Jan. 4 2012
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This incredible series was the first time I read anything by Frank Miller. This was pre-Dark Knight and showed me what exactly you could do with comics. While comics in the 70s began to make more realistic stories with arcs like the Harry Osbourne's drug issues and Tony Stark's alcoholism. But the story was when Frank started with Marvel, he asked to be put on the lowest selling comic and so they gave him Daredevil. With this, he created great, gritty urban dramas that took Daredevil from the clean comics world into the sordid underbelly of New York's Hell's Kitchen. Matt Murdoch became a champion for the downtrodden of the neighborhood, and it culminated in this awesome storyline where the Kingpin finds out his secret identity from his junky, porn whore ex-girlfriend looking for her next fix. The Kingpin then systematically destroys Matt's life and livelihood until he hits rock bottom. As alcoholics say, when you hit rock bottom, you find out who you really are, and in this story, Matt does just that. It is a story of almost biblical proportions of falling and redemption. For most people who are unfamiliar with Miller's lesser known works, as they are overshadowed by The Dark Knight, Year One and Sin City, this is a great addition to your comic library. Don't deprive yourself.
