First off, Maleev's art, steals the show. The way he can work his scratches and uses the darkness is great. This book arrived to me in fantastic condition as it should have, and swiftly. Now the book itself is great, I wanted to read more about Daredevil, and this collected edition was a wonderful look into the old darker times of him. I recommend this to anyone wanting to dabble into the Man without Fear.

HASH(0xa3b5b4bc) out of 5 stars Three Great Stories in One Book July 29 2010
By DC_Fan_52 - Published on
Format: Paperback
As my name can attest I'm not a "Marvel Fan." I got into Daredevil when I heard about Frank Miller's character defining run from the early 80s. I loved Frank Miller's Daredevil, but wanted to find a newer Daredevil story to place besides my Frank Miller Omnibus. My search pointed me to Daredevil by Brian Michelle Bendis as the newest, greatest Daredevil writer. The only thing that was left was getting a hold of the books.

Brian Michael Bendis run on Daredevil has been released multiple times, in 9 softcover, 5 hardcovers, and 2 Omnibuses (Omnibi?). But, the hardcovers are Out of Print and the Omnibuses are ridiculously expensive. So, you might want to buy the original softcovers or just get this three-in-one collection.

This book contains Daredevil Vol. 3: Wake Up, Daredevil Vol. 4: Underboss, and Daredevil Vol. 5: Out. There will be three of these "Ultimate Volumes" in total, and I can easily tell that Bendis is setting up some stuff that he will pay off in the long run. Consider this Part 1 of a Trilogy because this sets up Daredevil's new status-quo. One thing that comes out of no-where is that the Kingpin is blind. Sometime before this book takes place, someone blinded Wilson Fisk. That said, it doesn't really bug me not knowing what happened, that's just the nature of comic book storytelling. I can roll with the punches.

The first story "Wake Up" bugged me slightly, not because of it's subject matter, but the surreal art they chose to use. I found it distracting from the story. I'd advise to skip reading "Wake Up" until you've read the other two stories in the book to enhance your enjoyment of the book. "Underboss" is finely written and the real start of BMB's run on Daredevil. It has some dark, gritty art to match the subject matter. Someone is trying to kill the Kingpin, and it goes steadily out of control. It's great. Then it all pours into some aftermath in "Out." "Out" has a noticeably lighter art-style, and leaves us in suspence of where Bendis is taking Daredevil.

Oh, yeah, and Spiderman makes a guest appearance for about one chapter to help a fellow Manhattanite out.

I'm happy to have these in my collection and can't wait to get Volumes 2 & 3.

HASH(0xa3b5b594) out of 5 stars Great stories, great characters June 10 2013
By Reid Sherman - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I have really enjoyed a number of comic books by Brian Michael Bendis (House of M, Ultimate Spider-man), but this is probably the best. I'm not a particular fan of Daredevil as a character, but this book goes way beyond fighting bad guys in red tights.

There are 4 stories in this edition. The first is quite distinct from the others, as it is from the perspective of journalist Ben Urich, and has a very different art style from the rest of the book. It's a good story, although a bit slow, but with wonderful painted art.

The rest of the stories, especially the second and third (the ones drawn by Alex Maleev), are really more about superhero failure and neuroses than superhero heroics. Matt Murdock is suffering, and while he saves some people and stops some crime when he dresses up as Daredevil, it really comes across that Daredevil is an obsession and he'd really be better off if he gave his hobby up. His trials start to affect his judgment and moral compass, and he makes some key mistakes. It's good to see a superhero comic really explore the notion that being a superhero is a bad idea.

As well, the book gives a lot of room to other characters, like the ones in the Kingpin's crime family. Some might complain that the book is 'talky' with a lot of dialogue and little action, but I think it's great.

Many people have gushed about Alex Maleev's art. I wasn't as crazy about it as I expected when I first got to his chapters of the book, but it grew on me over time and by finishing it I saw the appeal. It's not always pretty, and certainly is not the usual style for many superhero comics, but it suits the stories, and the lighting and facial expressions, and the pacing of the panels, is superb.

Not that this book is short of praise, but in case you are at all on the fence, if you have any interest in Daredevil OR superheroes generally OR noir stories, this is one to get.

HASH(0xa3b5b8f4) out of 5 stars Absolutely spectacular. Took my newfound love of Daredevil books to a new level May 20 2014
By Ben Martin - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
I bought this after reading the Frank Miller run, which was great, but this took that to an all-new level and in an entirely new direction.

This first phase of the Bendis run involves the Kingpin trying to hold on to his kingdom when a young, ambitious gangster tries to take his place, with Daredevil right in the middle. I won't spoil anything, since I enjoyed this more for having known nothing about the character beyond the Miller stuff that came before, but this story would change Daredevil forever. And unlike other titles, these changes were not undone by future writers, but instead embraced as a new part of the character.

It reads like a gritty noir novel, and is drawn to match. This has a couple different artists, with David Mack taking the first few issues, and Alex Maleev taking over for most of the rest of Bendis's run. Both of these two are spectacular in their own way, and fit the different stories they illustrated.

One of the things I learned to love about DD is that he doesn't always fight super-powered villains. Sure there is a little bit of that here and there, but for the most part he is dealing with much more real problems. As someone who works in the media, I also love the way publisher J. Jonah Jameson, reporter Ben Urich and photographer Peter Parker (Spider-Man) play a role in this story. It all had a very realistic feel to it, and I hope for all I'm worth that they use this story in some way in the upcoming Daredevil series on Netflix.

Don't be worried about the fact that there are some missing issues in the collection. I didn't feel like I missed anything important. Just buy this immediately.

HASH(0xa3b5be10) out of 5 stars Epic Daredevil March 28 2014
By Pseudonym - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I am ordinarily not a fan of Bendis' writing from his killing of Ultimate Peter Parker to his transformation of Ultron in the Mighty Avengers to his treatment of Siege. He often turns things around on its head leaving the reader spinning. While he does indeed do that here too, it is to great effect. His run of Daredevil is very gritty and its impact on the Daredevil universe is tremendously important, and has allowed those who came after him to write storylines that are just as gripping. It would not be going to far to say that his run changed the tone of Daredevil comics forever, just like Frank Miller. Furthermore, the mood set by the artwork of Alex Maleev fits the tone of Bendis' run perfectly. When judging of the merit of the artwork by itself, it is nothing short of incredible either. In summation with a great storyline and fantastic artwork, I cannot recommend this highly enough.

HASH(0xa3b5b6d8) out of 5 stars Bad Assery Oct. 11 2012
By Shmuel Johnson - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
having only recently begun my descent into the world of daredevil, I was skeptical of this superhero and his red outfit being reared on the exploits of the X-Men and the goodie goodie peter parker. The blind lawyer Matt Murdoch who masquerades as daredevil is no goodie two shoes by any stretch and has a somewhat disturbing psychological profile. This particular run that Brian Michael Bendis spearheaded was top in terms of storytelling, I literally spent hours hunkered down in my bed blasting through pages of this stuff. The content can be dark and is most definitely on the bloody violent side with mafioso's vying for territory, gory assassinations and brains being swiftly escorted from their rightful domain at times. However there is room for the heart as Matt traverses the heartbreak of love both lost and gained as well as everything in between. This my friends is comic book gold and storytelling awesomeness, I highly recommend you grab this and don't look back.
