Daredevil Born Again


One of the stories that always makes my top five favorites list is Frank Miller and David Mazzucchelli's Born Again saga in which Daredevil is nearly destroyed (and then put back together by Miller). Unlike Miller's earlier Daredevil work, which I find a bit juvenile and dated, this one holds up remarkably well these twenty-odd years later. Half the genius of this story is David Mazzucchelli's art. He's easily one of my favorite comic book artists and really makes this story come to life. It's too bad he didn't do more mainstream comic book work. (Pencils and inks by David Mazzucchelli. Click for larger view.)

I am new to the comic art world, but I really love Groo (I have several copies of the first issue) and was wondering if you knew of anyone selling any of the original art work. I also live in Queens, NY. Too bad you don't live here anymore, sounds like we have a lot in common (ok, not that much). Keep posting, love your Blog.

Groo is seriously underrated. I don't know you, but you come across as very intelligent (and even good looking). Glad to have you among my fans...
