Daredevil #1

Daredevil 001Kevin Smith // Joe Quesada
November 1998
****

Maybe the strongest success (definitely the most popular one) of Marvel’s “soft” reboots after the moribund Image Era. Smith brings nerd-love AWA film experience & Hollywood caché, & delivers a v.g. script. But it’s future EiC Quesada who shines, w/ deceptively simple layouts & dynamic acrobatics.

    Are the books you look at planned in advance? Either way, the whole Kevin Smith-Bendis-Brubaker run could sustain you for a very long time if that’s where you’re going.

      Yeah, I’m sitting down to read that whole run — just over a hundred issues altogether? I remember DD being so good from month to month, I want to see if it’s held up.

      After that, I may switch gears completely. Like, I’ve never read the Starlin’s Cptn. Marvel or Warlock! Or maybe an old classic or two, like the Lee/Kirby FF. Any recommendations?

    Ha, well, it’ll be a long time before you get to it, but I’d like to hear your opinion on the Waid/Wieringo Fantastic Four run. You seem to hit all the other high watermarks of Marvel’s first family(Lee/Kirby, Byrne, Simonson, Hickman), but Waid/Ringo remains my favorite. It’ll be a big shift in gears from the increasingly grim/dark(but good!) street level Daredevil era you got ahead of you.

    Either way, I check this website regardless, so just keep doing what you’re doing!
