Author: Frank Miller

Blinded in his youth by an accident which left him with super-heightened senses, Matt Murdock's ears more than make up for his lack of sight. A lawyer by day, Murdock has become the Daredevil by night. A crime fighting alter-ego which seeks justice where the law cannot.

When criminal underworld head Kingpin discovers the true identity of the one man he can't corrupt, he puts a ruthless plan in motion, not to stop Daredevil, but destroy Matt Murdock himself. Stripped bare, ruined and left for dead, Matt's personal and professional lives are left in tatters; the man without fear becomes the man with nothing to lose in Frank Miller's classic superhero tale.

When all is lost, Matt at war with his own demons, finding only lies and betrayal in everyone he once trusted. It is here, at the end, by the touch of nursing hands, that he finds the strength to rise... to be reborn.

Daredevil: Born Again is about revival and like all the best superhero stories, it focuses on the man inside the suit rather than the suit itself. Daredevil is one of the more interesting characters in the Marvel universe and we are treated to some good cameos here too. The artwork by David Mazzucchelli is superb with vintage comic book flair glossed with his signature style.
