Thanks to Marvel digital comics here is a very easy inexpensive way to catch up in a real hurry with a plethora of Daredevil comic book greatness! But you better act fast, this sale is only going on until April 26th!
At the same time the Daredevil Netflix series debuted, Marvel digital comics simultaneously launched a spectacular collected editions DD comic book sale! Found using Marvel digital comics apps, Comixoligy comic book app or at Marvel Digital Comics Website you will quickly find the featured sale to begin buying your very own Daredevil comic collection. For those that use Marvel Unlimited this won’t matter much and if you don’t know what digital comics are all info can be found at any apps store or Marvel’s website.
The collected edition books available are some of the grandest Daredevil tales ever created. From the great Frank Miller who basically redefined DD into the heart and soul-broken character taken to the depths of a dark brutal life in Hell’s Kitchen’s for the tough-as-nails street fighting vigilante. Than we have the game changing storyline from the mind of Brian M. Bendis who took Matt Murdock and Kingpin to even darker paths of their legend as Bendis changed both rival foes forever.

Daredevil got a new lease on life in a landmark 1979-1983 run by writer-penciler Frank Miller and inker-penciler Klaus Janson, whose daring reinvention of the character quickly made Miller one of the biggest and most influential stars in the comic-book industry. Miller put his own stamp on established cast members such as reporter Ben Urich, femme fatale Black Widow, mad assassin Bullseye, the saw-fisted Gladiator, and monstrous crime boss Kingpin.

PopcultHQ Rating: 4 out of 5 Devils Horns – Written by movie director Kevin Smith (Clerks, Mallrats, Jay and Silent Bob Strikes Back, Clerks 2) and drawn by Joe Quesada this is a great story to read and look at but does tend to get lost in the over writing and sometimes very long-winded dialog.
