Essential Daredevil

    (Marvel, 2002, 2005)
™ and © 1964-1967 and 2002 Marvel Characters, Inc.

Most longtime comic book fans are familiar with key issues in Daredevil’s history — including his origin issue (#1) and epic battle with the Sub-Mariner (#7). Other issues from the 1960s, however, are considerably more obscure. The impressive Essential volumes rectify that situation by collecting 25 issues at a time, in their entirety, so that the early stories can be enjoyed by Daredevil fans new and old. Issues include work by such comic legends as Stan Lee, Wallace Wood, Joe Orlando, Bill Everett, and Gene Colan, among others.

If there is a drawback, it’s that each issue is presented in black and white, depriving readers of the rich color from early encounters with Spider-Man, Gladiator, and Leapfrog.
