A COMIC BOOK MASTERPIECE
I have shown him... That a man without hope... is a man without fear.
I wanted to read this storyline since some months ago when I found out about it on the magazine that Marvel Comics published to celebrate its 75th Anniversary (that includes since its age as Timely Comics) where they printed a list made by the voting from the fans choosing the 75 most popular storylines ever, by Marvel, where Born Again got the fourth place in the list, only under Kraven’s Last Hunt, Civil War and The Death of Gwen Stacy. And honestly, Born Again is so strong that it could easily got the top spot.
Frank Miller did a superb writing job here, and I have read a lot of his material and believe it or not, Born Again is a product as good as The Dark Knight Returns, and taking blindly (pun intended) the quality of narrative displayed here, the use of the words, the richness in the prose, it could being considered even a better product than its distinguished competitor, but don’t get us into a messy fight that nobody would be able to win (after all, both stories are written by the same author!). Let’s just say that Born Again is, without a doubt, one of the strongest storylines ever published in the comic books’ industry.
David Mazzucchelli delivered a wonderful artistic direction and while the proper artwork may be consider not as impressive as the current ones in nowadays’ comic books, definitely it’s an awesome and carefully planned job in the whole storyline to bring symmetry in key moments of each issue along with a spectacular use of angles and perspectives in the scenes.
PAYING FOR THE SINS OF OTHERS
It’s not every day that you sell your soul.
A woman looking for a “quick fix” in her life, provokes a long term disarray in the life of a man.
Karen Page, former girlfriend of Matt Murdock (aka Daredevil) and also former secretary in the legal office of Nelson and Murdock, was long gone from New York. She went after her dream to become a Hollywood star, but her dream turned into a nightmare. She ended as prostitute in some non-disclosed Mexican border town (most likely doing porn movies too) and she fell into drugs, just to complete this awful package of her life.
Karen “sells” just for a measly drug shot, the real identity of Daredevil. No one can fall lower than that.
The information of Daredevil’s alter ego travels fast until reaching...
...the hands of Wilson Fisk, the Kingpin!!!
Just that is a powerful introduction to the storyline, crude, raw, real, but what the Kingpin does with the info is what makes this storyline so powerful, so great.
Wilson Fisk knows that Daredevil is just a costume, you don’t destroy a costume, you destroy the man inside of it, you destroy Matt Murdock, but slowly.
Instead of a typical comic book direct hasty assault towards the hero, Wilson Fisk takes his time. There is no rush. The Kingpin invests six months to plan the systematic obliteration of Matt Murdock’s life: Properties, money savings, legal license, reputation, friends, current girlfriend, physical health, mental sanity, everything has to go away, without Matt’s realization that somebody is behind of the orchestration of his personal downfall, but slowly.
The downfall of a good man must be like a glass of wine, you have to savor it, but slowly.
Born Again is a must-read for any Daredevil’s fan, but also a wonderful option for any fan of comic books in general, and even a great choice for any reader looking for a really good story.
