    Batman: Year One by Frank Miller (hazzabamboo)
    hazzabamboo: Frank Miller's origin stories for these two giants have never been bested. The writing, art and imagination in both comics demonstrate what the medium can be.

    hazzabamboo: These are both excellent accounts of Daredevil's origin, itself one of the best superhero genesis stories out there, from two of our best comics writers.

A very solid entry into the Daredevil canon from Frank Miller, which addresses the origins, and development of the early part of the Daredevil story. The arc proceeds from him starting as a young man in Hell's Kitchen to his development into a fully fledged superhero on the way. Convincing, gripping and realistic, this is quality work and worth looking at. ( )

Proof of why Frank Miller is the best Daredevil writer ever. ( )

Good but not great. Miller returns to the well, but without as much energy and excitement as some of his other work on Daredevil. This doesn't have the sweep and scale that would make it the novel that Miller wanted it to be. Further, there's not as much at stake as there was in Born Again, which just might be my favorite Miller Daredevil story. Elektra was a necessary, but slightly under-realized element of the story. Romita's pencils are nice. Worthwhile for the Miller fan and good to introduce someone to his work, but it's by no means his best.

So, as a kid, Daredevil gets hit by his dad, who is then killed. He then grows up to beat up on other people, as an adjunct to his life as a lawyer. In-between he has hot sex with Elektra, who also likes to beat up other people, but who is "bad". Gee, thanks Frank Miller! ( )

If only all the superheroes could have such a talent as Frank Miller re-writing their origin story, with a fantastic artist like John Romita Jr. working alongside. This story is classic Miller, and you can easily see hints of his more gritty Sin City series simmering underneath the story of a hard-luck kid brought up blind in Hell's Kitchen. The only thread of the tale that could have used a little more fleshing out would be Kingpin; his empire of crime brings about the main point of conflict but the actual character seems a bit one-dimensional. Otherwise not much to complain about here: a strong origin story with a ton of noir. ( )
