* a big part of my growth as a comics reader in the 1980s was reading the best superhero comics being done. Daredevil was one of the few titles that my brothers and I did not collect at one time or another. When we heard -- and I have no idea how, exactly -- that the title had become good, we used the local used books stores to dig up the Miller run-to-date. Those comics were a lot fun. They were very much of their time in that a lot of their juice comes from a constant risk of death in a way that provided a strong contrast with the threat level present in other comics.
