This week on View from the Gutters our topic work is Daredevil: The Man Without Fear, by Frank Miller and John Romita, Jr. Published in 1994, The Man Without Fear explores and revises the origin of Daredevil—and by extension the origins of Elektra and The Kingpin.
If you’re familiar with Frank Miller’s other works you have an idea of what you’re getting into with this book, which was written contemporaneously with Miller’s Sin City. Similarly, this book is an excellent sample of John Romita, Jr’s art, which—love it or hate it—is at it’s peak in this book.
In our recommendation section, our hosts nominated Superman: Red Son, iZombie, Alabaster Wolves, Harbinger, and Umbral for discussion on the next episode, and our selected title is Umbral, Vol. 1 & 2.
Our hosts for this episode are Andrew Chard, Tobiah Panshin, Joe Preti, Kayleigh Fleeman, and Brant Gillihan-Eddy.
