FANS

To help celebrate the site's 22nd anniversary, I reached out to DD fans to get their responses to 5 questions.

Those questions were:

1. What got you interested in the character?

2. What is the first DAREDEVIL comic you read?

3. Your top 3 writers and top 3 artists on DAREDEVIL?

4. What is the most obscure Daredevil-related thing you own?

5. Your favorite supporting cast character and why?

Over the week, I received over 160 responses, so thank you very much to everyone who participated. (If you still want to have your responses listed, just drop me an email with your answers, I will add to this page later)

So... here we go, and thanks once again!


Kyle M.

What got you interested in the character?

I got interested in DD when for Christmas as a kid I received a pack of assorted Marvel comics which contained...

What is the first DAREDEVIL comic you read?

DD #271. Which was kinda heavy for an (at the time) eleven year old to get I to, with the animal rights stuff and the wordiness of it, but the JRJR/Williamson art pulled me in. (His work has never been as good with any other inker in my opinion). I was intrigued by that great simple cover of DD jumping into action on the yellow background.

Your top 3 writers and top 3 artists on DAREDEVIL?

Writers: Miller, Nocenti, Waid... But I would like to add that Denny O'Neil's run is criminally underrated. And Bendis is equally overrated.
Artists: Mazzuchelli, Lark, Miller/Janson... With an honorable mention for Colan the legend

What is the most obscure Daredevil-related thing you own?

I have a lot of DD stuff, but mostly straightforward things like t-shirts, figures, posters, etc. Most obscure is probably either my Funko Mopeez plush or the DD Hot Wheels car my brother-in-law got me for Christmas. (Y'know, that Matt can't drive)

Your favorite supporting cast character and why?

Easily Foggy, who I'm sure will be the most common answer in a landslide. Perhaps the best friendship in comics history. But I do still miss Karen (kind of shocked she's never been brought back in all this time) and I have a soft spot for Dakota, I thought there was still a lot of story potential for her when they wrote her out. For what it's worth my least favorite supporting character is Milla by a wide margin. She sucked. :) Thanks for all the work you've put into the site for so long!

How his life can spiral and hit rock bottom but he always pulls himself back together and rebuild

What is the first DAREDEVIL comic you read?

Guardian Devil

Your top 3 writers and top 3 artists on DAREDEVIL?

Miller, Brubaker, Bendis
Quesada, Romita Jr

What is the most obscure Daredevil-related thing you own?

An old figure of his 'Fall From Grace' suit

Your favorite supporting cast character and why?

Foggy. Normal guy has to deal with being a superhero's best friend, but doesn't end up being a sidekick, partner, etc.


Nora C.

What got you interested in the character?

The senses

What is the first DAREDEVIL comic you read?

The Kesel storyline

Your top 3 writers and top 3 artists on DAREDEVIL?

Bendis, Waid, Miller Artists: Maleev, Maleev and Maleev, then Nord, Samnee. My favorite story is Daredevil Redemption by David Hine.

What is the most obscure Daredevil-related thing you own?

The novels. They are strange but I like them anyway.

Your favorite supporting cast character and why?

Foggy. I love the deep friendship and loyalty.


Marissa L.

What got you interested in the character?

The Netflix show. I wasn't into superhero comics at all before that, but I was sick, bored, and it crossed my radar from two sources whose opinions I trust. I needed something to do, so I watched the first episode. It was pretty good, and later that day, when I was bored again, I watched the 2nd. That was it for me.

What is the first DAREDEVIL comic you read?

My husband had a subscription to Marvel Unlimited, so I asked him to find me "the good Daredevil books" (he didn't read DD at the time). He located the start of Miller's run, so whatever that one was.

Your top 3 writers and top 3 artists on DAREDEVIL?

Writers: Miller, Bendis, Waid, Honorable mentions to Soule and Nocenti. Yes, I'm the rare beast who enjoys both Bendis/Brubaker's and Waid's take on the character.
Artists: Maleev, Colan, Samnee. I love Maleev's style. Colan's art has the effortless competence of an artist who doesn't feel the need to prove himself, which makes him that much better. I think Samnee lays out the best pages of any artist today.
Honorable Mention: Mack, Sienkiewicz. I love their styles in general, but they didn't do as much on the character. I'm not sure if I like what they did for DD, or just their styles in general.

What is the most obscure Daredevil-related thing you own?

N/A

Your favorite supporting cast character and why?

Foggy. He's the straight man foil offering the reader a stand in for a reasonable, non-super-powered, co-dependent friend of DD.


Stan H.

What got you interested in the character?

A friend in the early 1980s pointed out the dynamic fighting poses that this artist Frank Miller was portraying

What is the first DAREDEVIL comic you read?

Daredevil (1964) #126 - Daredevil vs. the Torpedo by Wolfman and Bob Brown

Your top 3 writers and top 3 artists on DAREDEVIL?

Writers: Waid, Miller, Brubaker
Artist: Lark, Samnee, Miller

What is the most obscure Daredevil-related thing you own?

I have the entire Daredevil run #s 1-594 bound into 23 individual volumes

Your favorite supporting cast character and why?

A dead Elektra because he needs that constant pain/reminder as part of his character.


Genesis M.

What got you interested in the character?

I think my initial exposure to Daredevil was through the 1994 Spider-Man animated series. I was immediately taken by his heavily shaded design. He just looked so dark and cool, though I misunderstood his radar sense, despite the show explaining it pretty well, overall. Somehow, possibly because of the red visualization they used, I thought his mask temporarily returns his sight, but that he's limited to a red spectrum of colour perception. I later encountered him in the Spider-Man game for Dreamcast, then the Daredevil movie (which I liked a lot at the time), then other games like Marvel Nemesis and Ultimate Alliance (why he was never playable in Marvel vs. Capcom is beyond me), and only then, after collecting a decent amount of Wolverine, Spider-Man, Iron Man, and Spider-Woman comics, did I finally turn my attention to comics specifically featuring the Man Without Fear. I think what kept me interested has a lot to do with the fact that his most defining feature is a disability, rather than something like superhuman strength or powers of flight. That he can't see is central to what makes him so cool.

What is the first DAREDEVIL comic you read?

That's hard to say. I started picking up so many cheap floppies and interesting trades from comic shops all at once that I really can't remember which was my first. It may well have been Daredevil #38, in which Doctor Doom body-swaps with DD, or vol. 2 #1 for the Guardian Devil arc, Daredevil Annual #4 (Atlantis Attacks), or something during Ann Nocenti's run (presumably one of the guest appearance books, like #249 with Wolverine or #283 with Captain America).

Your top 3 writers and top 3 artists on DAREDEVIL?

Ed Brubaker, Ann Nocenti, Mark Waid
Gene Colan, Marko Djurdjevic, David Aja

What is the most obscure Daredevil-related thing you own?

I don't have anything obscure featuring Daredevil. I have the yellow Legends figure, as well as another, far less posable figure modeled after the Ben Affleck look and packaged with a reprint of Daredevil #164, a chunky magnet from Target, a poster from Walmart featuring Michael Lark art, and two T-shirts that I love and wear to death: an unofficial piece from TeeFury that reads, "There are times when the law is not enough," and an official one from Walmart using the cover from Daredevil Black & White #1 "Super Issue". That's all the DD merch I own.

Your favorite supporting cast character and why?

Probably the Black Widow. I consider Matt's relationship with Natasha to be his healthiest one, despite having its own problems, and they made a good team. Not sure if he should count, but I often love a good DD/Spider-Man teamup. An obvious answer is Foggy, of course. He's a little too varied in his portrayals, but maybe that's why he works so well for many different writers - he's malleable enough to fit the needs of the story. I rather like his Netflix characterisation, as he's less of a wimp and isn't as willing to take Matt's crap.


Samuel G.

What got you interested in the character?

I always found his emotional trauma and his disability to be fascinating character traits. Here was a blind public servant, wracked with religious guilt and mental illness, who dressed up like the devil and beat the hell out of lowlife killers and thieves. What was not to like?

What is the first DAREDEVIL comic you read?

Vol 2, 26. "Underboss" pt 1 by Bendis and Maleev.

Your top 3 writers and top 3 artists on DAREDEVIL?

Writers: Miller, Bendis, Waid
Artists: Romita Jr., Samnee, Maleev

What is the most obscure Daredevil-related thing you own?

Fogwell's Gym T-shirt.

Your favorite supporting cast character and why?

Turk is consistently a favorite of mine, from page to screen. He is such an endearingly bad criminal and has this unique working relationship with DD.


Erik M.

What got you interested in the character?

I got interested because of a combination of factors. I always loved the character when he appeared in the 90s Spider-Man cartoon, but it was the announcement of the Netflix series that got me to start reading Daredevil comics.

What is the first DAREDEVIL comic you read?

First Daredevil comic was The Man Without Fear.

Your top 3 writers and top 3 artists on DAREDEVIL?

Top Three Writers: Frank Miller, Mark Waid, Ed Brubaker
Top Artists: David Mazzuchelli, Frank Miller, Gene Colan

What is the most obscure Daredevil-related thing you own?

Nothing exciting, I have a Matt Murdock (not Daredevil) FunkoPop.

Your favorite supporting cast character and why?

Foggy Nelson is my favorite supporting character because their friendship is often the heart and soul of the book. That being said, honorable mention to Turk and Grotto because they added some needed comic relief.


Kyle R.

What got you interested in the character?

Spider-Man the Animated Series, and later, coverage of the MK launch in Wizard Magazine.

What is the first DAREDEVIL comic you read?

Daredevil v2 #81 – the last issue of Brian Michael Bendis and Alex Maleev’s run.

Your top 3 writers and top 3 artists on DAREDEVIL?

Top 3 writers – Mark Waid, Brian Bendis, Frank Miller. Top 3 artists – Chris Samnee, John Romita Jr., Alex Maleev.

What is the most obscure Daredevil-related thing you own?

Tough one. Probably one of the obscure variants, or the 2003 movie promotional postcards, or the DD yellow Mighty Beanz.

Your favorite supporting cast character and why?

Does Black Widow count? Black Widow.


Matt M.

What got you interested in the character?

As a kid, I watched a lot of martial arts and ninja movies. I loved that shit. As I began reading comics, I gravitated towards the tragic hero types. Especially the ones trained in martial arts and fought against evil ninjas.

What is the first DAREDEVIL comic you read?

The first Daredevil comic I remember reading was #271.

Your top 3 writers and top 3 artists on DAREDEVIL?

Top writers: Frank Miller, Brian Michael Bendis, Charles Soule. Top artists: Alex Maleev, David Mazzuchelli, Ron Garney.

What is the most obscure Daredevil-related thing you own?

I have a set of DD socks with horns.

Your favorite supporting cast character and why?

I would say that my favorite support character(s) is The Hand created by Frank Miller during his run as writer/artist. Not only does this evil cult ninja clan/secret society act as a great nemesis for Daredevil, but also adds to his origin & development as well. Miller used The Hand to add a darker tone and sense of supernatural mysticism that one should expect with a hero dressed as a devil.


David F.

What got you interested in the character?

I got interested when the Ben Affleck movie came out and leading up to it. I bought a few Daredevil comics but as soon as I read Guardian Devil, I was hooked!

Shane G.

What got you interested in the character?

Really it was Bullseye, my first Daredevil comic, the one that got me into the character, was issue 284 (not the same as below, explained there). Since that first arc, I was hooked on DD. I went on to collect it each month as well as picking up back issues, at first all the Bullseye appearances, to now needing 60 issues to complete volume 1

What is the first DAREDEVIL comic you read?

While 284 was the first DD book I read that got me into the character, the first issue I read was issue 223, the Secret Wars 2 tie in which was really good

Your top 3 writers and top 3 artists on DAREDEVIL?

Not easy but I'd go with top 3 writers - Waid, Bendis and Miller. For artists, Samnee, Maleev and Colan

What is the most obscure Daredevil-related thing you own?

I was gifted some knock off Daredevil & Bullseye Lego mini figs.

Your favorite supporting cast character and why?

Foggy, he's the safe bet but I'd have to say Turk! Especially with the Netflix series, he's always great to see pop up in a scummy role.


Gerald S.

What got you interested in the character?

Of all superheroes, I find Daredevil easiest to believe. When one or two senses are impaired, the others do compensate, and the persistent person learns to cope. I also liked that the power Matt gained -- radar sense -- didn't fully make up for the loss of his sight.

What is the first DAREDEVIL comic you read?

I don't recall exactly, but one from DG Chichester's run.

Your top 3 writers and top 3 artists on DAREDEVIL?

Writers: 1) Frank Miller, 2) Mark Waid, 3) Jeph Loeb.
Artists: 1) David Mazzuchelli, 2) Paolo Rivera, 3) Tim Sale.

What is the most obscure Daredevil-related thing you own?

Daredevil 2003 movie-tie-in Daredevil action figure.

Your favorite supporting cast character and why?

My favorite is Foggy because he has so much history with Matt.


James C.

What got you interested in the character?

My brother and I shared a flyer route. One month we won an award for “deliverer of the month” or something and the prize was two comics: one issue of Spider-Man and one issue of Daredevil. Because he was the older brother he took the Spider-Man comic and I was “stuck” with Daredevil. I was immediately transfixed by the character (and comics in general).

What is the first DAREDEVIL comic you read?

247 “The Backwards Man” by Ann Nocenti. A completely bizarre introduction to the character, comics and Nocenti. I immediately ran out and bought the most current issue which was Daredevil 258; “I Heard the Jungle Breathe” by Fabian Nicieza which was equally bizarre. The next month Daredevil was beaten to a pulp in 259 which, in retrospect, amounted to a pretty “normal” Daredevil story.

Your top 3 writers and top 3 artists on DAREDEVIL?

Top three writers. Frank Miller, Ann Nocenti, D. G. Chichester
Top three artists. David Mazzucchelli, Lee Weeks and John Romita Jr.

What is the most obscure Daredevil-related thing you own?

A pretty terrible Daredevil tie from the 90s. It’s mostly purple and I’m not sure who the artist was but it’s not a great picture of Daredevil. What makes it especially obscure is that I have two of them because my girlfriend at the time and my parents bought me the same (terrible) tie for my birthday.

Your favorite supporting cast character and why?

Bullseye. He’s usually written pretty terribly (i.e. a poor man’s Joker) but when done right he’s a force of nature. His costume is cool. His gimmick is cool and I love it when he’s written as a real criminal in a costume.


Tyler H.

What got you interested in the character?

At the age of 37 I said, "I like to read a comic for the first time." I googled "what's a good current comic?" Daredevil got a lot of mentions, I saw the Palo Rivera cover art for #21, and was sold.

What is the first DAREDEVIL comic you read?

Went to local shop after that google search and picked up #24 and #25 (volume 3). #26 was the first book I bought on release day.

Your top 3 writers and top 3 artists on DAREDEVIL?

Writers: Waid, Miller, Bendis
Artists: Samnee, Miller/Janson combo, Wally Wood

What is the most obscure Daredevil-related thing you own?

I only collect the comics. I only collect main title, regular covers. No variants, mini-series etc. Currently only missing 6 books. (1,2,3,6,8,9) My copy of 158 is signed by Frank Miller. Didn't know until after I bought it, neither did the seller.

Your favorite supporting cast character and why?

Elektra. because, Elektra...


Ron P.

What got you interested in the character?

My introduction to Daredevil was though the ELEKTRA SAGA comics on my local comic shop stands back in the early 80s. As I could not get enough of Elektra, I started on the Daredevil comics, hoping she would return, and got caught up in the character of Matt Murdock. The comic was consistently good, both art-wise and in the writing. I've been reading ever since.

What is the first DAREDEVIL comic you read?

I recall raiding the comic shop at the time I was hooked on Elektra and picked up Daredevil #208, staying with the comic ever since.

Your top 3 writers and top 3 artists on DAREDEVIL?

Frank Miller tops the list because of Elektra. D.G. Chichester & Scott McDaniel amazed me with their terrific prose and strong stories, and Brian Michael Bendis did an amazing job of really bringing the the series into a very down-to-earth feel, no doubt inspiring the realistic Netflix series.

What is the most obscure Daredevil-related thing you own?

While I have a few figures, nothing outdoes a toy Black & Decker saw my friend Tom gave me. While watching the Netflix series, I was floored when, after Wilson Fisk takes out his father with a hammer, his mother comforts him and says, pragmatically, "Get the saw." What a woman! When Tom gave me the toy saw out of the blue, I was laughing myself sick for two whole minutes!

Your favorite supporting cast character and why?

Elektra will always be my favorite, though I actually consider her the star, since she's the one who introduced me to the series! Elektra does not try to be the hero, nor does she let her enemies escape. The woman knows how to solve a problem!


Ashley S.

What got you interested in the character?

Daredevil really captures many elements that I'm particularly interested in. I'm a huge boxing fan and I'm interested in Japanese culture. Regarding comics, I've always been a fan of street level, 'hardboiled' crime stories and Daredevil certainly encapsulates those things.

What is the first DAREDEVIL comic you read?

My first Daredevil comic was Guardian Devil #1 by Kevin smith and Joe quesada. That storyline as a whole really stayed with me. In comics the villian tries to beat the hero physically or mentally but mysterio in this Book actually attacks matt's faith. That concept totally hit me like a tonne of bricks. To challenge someone's faith, their spirituality and beliefs is very dark.

Your top 3 writers and top 3 artists on DAREDEVIL?

Frank Miller, Brian Michael Bendis, Charles Soule. Alex Maleev, Ron Garney, Micheal Lark

What is the most obscure Daredevil-related thing you own?

Oh boy. Here in the UK for years it seemed there was very limited merchandise related to the man without fear. This was a hard question to answer. I have daredevil #26 signed by Stan lee.

Your favorite supporting cast character and why?

Blindspot. I love his design and back story. The fact that he has suffered a major trauma so early in his crime fighting career will really add to the dichotomy between himself and Matt. Matt really does carry every loss and defeat with him and to face it so frequently in his protégé will be fascinating.


Rand H.

What got you interested in the character?

Back in 2006, I'd heard good things about Bendis's run, just ended, and I'd heard good things about Brubaker's run, just begun. (I had also non-ironically enjoyed the 2003 movie!)

What is the first DAREDEVIL comic you read?

Daredevil (Vol 2) #82: Part 1 of Brubaker and Lark's "Devil in Cell Block D" (...unless I'm counting DeMatteis and Bagley's Amazing Spider-Man #396)

Your top 3 writers and top 3 artists on DAREDEVIL?

Writers: #1: Brubaker #2: Waid #3: Bendis
Artists: #1: Lark #2: Samnee #3: Mack
Note 1: Definitely influenced by Brubaker/Lark being my first exposure
Note 2: Possibly influenced by my still never having read any Miller (!!) I have read his Man Without Fear mini, but none of his classic issues

What is the most obscure Daredevil-related thing you own?

The Marvel Comics Index #9B (cataloging all of DD; published in 1982)
(...unless FantaCo’s Chronicles Series #3 [also 1982] is more obscure!)

What is the first DAREDEVIL comic you read?

Daredevil Born Again and Man Without Fear. At the time was leaving high school and getting better acquainted with Millers overall outside of Year one and All Star. In retrospect shouldn’t have read Born Again didn’t understand the significance until 3 years later. Man Without Fear however it was love at first sight. And the Art work. I knew of Romita via kick ass but this was something else. Matt clicked with particular the scene of him doing home work for the sake of his future school opportunities and employment

First edition. Frank Miller Lynn Varley. Elektra Lives Again Epic comics maybe not super obscure to some but try finding one that isn’t overly priced

Your favorite supporting cast character and why?

Lt. Nicholas Manolis. In the Miller years he was a great follow to call out Matt on his views and crime fighting beliefs. Now a days the most supporting cast it seems is typical Melodrama stuff but Miller seemed to used characters like nick to debate key issues of the so called super hero code. We need more of that I think.

Your favorite supporting cast character and why?

Ben Urich. I like any non-powered supporting character that "lives" in the hero's "universe" (in this case, DD's Hell's Kitchen), and thrives in that world's own peculiar insanities (why would a regular joe reporter continually unmask criminals in a world of a hyper vigilant and all-powerful Kingpin of Crime?)

Your favorite supporting cast character and why?

Ben Urich. He's the most down-to-earth character in not only Daredevil but probably the whole of marvel. He's just a photographer caught in the crossfire of everything that happens around Hell's Kitchen. He's there not just for the exclusive scoop but to see righteousness being done and how he can impact other people's lives even without superpowers. He relates easily as an ordinary person as clearly seen in the "Wake Up" storyline.

Emma

What got you interested in the character?

I've always loved underdogs who are prone to underestimation, and also characters who continually beat the odds in badass, unexpected ways, so Matt Murdock is nearly perfect for me. I was drawn in by the compelling concept and remained hooked by the consistently high level of storytelling. There are barely any Daredevil stories I dislike, and for a comic that's been going for over fifty years, that's impressive.

What is the first DAREDEVIL comic you read?

Daredevil (vol. 2) #500, because it popped up as a free digital issue on the Marvel website once upon a time (I don't remember what the occasion was), and it looked cool. Obviously, that is the worse possible introductory issue, as great as it is. I had no idea who anyone was or what was going on. But I loved it anyway, and it prompted me to seek out other Daredevil comics, and now I'm a DD completist and devoted fan... so hey, it worked for me.

Your top 3 writers and top 3 artists on DAREDEVIL?

Writers: Mark Waid, Karl Kesel, and Brian Michael Bendis Artists: Lee Weeks, David Mazzucchelli, and Paolo Rivera With many, many runners-up.

What is the most obscure Daredevil-related thing you own?

I'm not sure if this counts as obscure, but I own volume 1 #288 and 289 in French. I also have a whole bunch of (recent) signed issues, and a DD baseball cap with horns... but who doesn't?

Your favorite supporting cast character and why?

Every time I re-read an arc I remember another supporting character I love, so this changes almost daily. (One of my favorite Daredevil elements, in fact, is the wealth of great side characters.) Foggy, Milla, Elektra, the Fatboys, Rosalind, etc. etc... today my favorite is... [spins roulette wheel] Stick. I love grouchy, irreverent, devil-may-care characters, his dynamic with Matt is a lot of fun, and he's such a mysterious figure that it's intriguing to imagine all of the details we never learned about him. Also, he exploded, which is a phenomenal way to die.


Thayrone Ibsen

What got you interested in the character?

Believe or not, the 2003 movie. Although now I see that that thing was really NOT a great homage to beloved DD, at the time I felt some level of the depth which is always there in Matt Murdock's enterprises.

What is the first DAREDEVIL comic you read?

Well, I don't know for sure... But I do believe it was issue #357, translated to Portuguese. I must say that this was not the issue that got me hooked. After I started liking the character, it was #305 & #306

Not to be a cliché, but certainly Foggy Nelson. The perfect more human foil for DD, and portrayed with more than nice levels of realism over some good years.

Brian

What got you interested in the character?

The look and the fact that he was blind. I grew up in Chile, where wasn't that easy find superhero comics in that age. I was waiting at the dentist, and another kid (slightly older) was reading a DD magazine. He showed me a few pages of the character. I instantly liked the costume (reminded me of Batman, which I always liked), and then he told me he was blind. I remember being very intrigued by the concept. Didn't imagine how could he be a superhero with that limitation. I didn't collect comics at that age, but a few years later, some other collector lent me the Elektra Saga. I remembered that character. Liked the story, remember I really liked the concept when I first knew about him, and started to look for any stories with him at the lead.

What is the first DAREDEVIL comic you read?

The Elektra Saga.

Your favorite supporting cast character and why?

Ben Urich (altho' Foggy's a great character since he's become the custodian of DD's civil life): Ben's simply one of the greatest supporting characters ever created. A guy who could be rich and famous, 'cause he knew one of the juiciest secrets of one of the superhero community, and he never revealed it, out of respect for Matt. He suffered many indignities from his boss, and many criminals, but he always put his moral code first. He's nos as flashy as DD or Spider-Man, but he's a hero in his own way.

What got you interested in the character?

The Netflix show - as soon as I saw it, I was hooked.

What is the first DAREDEVIL comic you read?

Following from the show, I started reading Stan Lee's early stuff but didn't get on with it so well. So paused and got into and read Frank Miller's 'The Man Without Fear'

What is the most obscure Daredevil-related thing you own?

Not sure what counts as obscure, but have loads of bits like keyrings, phone cover, Funko pop toys. Until recently, I was most proud of my JQ Netflix/Daredevil poster, signed by 14 of the cast I won in a charity raffle. But then for my 40th, I got the mask from the show, also signed by Charlie Cox.

Your favorite supporting cast character and why?

Oooh, this question is too hard. I like different characters for different reasons. I love the friendship between Matt and Foggy in both the show and comics. I love Karen in the show. I thought that Wilson Fisk in Season 1 was so excellent. Can't decide.


Eric Ahola

What got you interested in the character?

While I had seen and enjoyed him in comic appearances and cartoons, the 2003 movie is actually what got me to really look into him more.

What is the first DAREDEVIL comic you read?

It was a Spider-Man and Daredevil team up graphic novel.

In no certain order Brubaker Bendis Miller As for for artists, that is tough but I like Quesada Lark Maleev There are so many good ones, though.

What is the most obscure Daredevil-related thing you own?

In 2006, in my 8th grade art class, we had to make "block people" characters. Basically a piece of wood painted like a certain person, real or fictional. I chose to do Daredevil and still have it.

Your favorite supporting cast character and why?

Elektra. While she brings a lot of awful things in Matt's life, and she isn't exactly a wonderful human, I love what she does for the story. I think Matt has a lot of issues as well and the two fit together in a fun way.

As much as I love Foggy, I have to say it is Ben Urich. Ben in a Daredevil story just makes everything interesting. He is after all to Daredevil as what Commish Gordon is to Batman.

Alexis Panayides

What got you interested in the character?

Ben Affleck's Daredevil movie. I was around 10 at the time, and with comics not being so easy to find in my country, what I knew about DD was only what I could read from some translated Spidey comics. With the movie, my mind was blown.

What is the first DAREDEVIL comic you read?

I do not remember the exact first issue of DD that I've read, but the first complete story that I read was Born Again.

Foggy Nelson has always been my favorite supporting cast member. He’s been there for most of the journey. He’s smart, a snappy dresser (ha!), and has kept the home fires burning so Matt can have a place to land. Even though Foggy gets tired of playing second fiddle, he can more than carry his weight in the friendship. I love Foggy Nelson!

Zachary Tidd

What got you interested in the character?

The Daredevil movie got me interested into the character. I was really little when it came out and I thought he was so cool swinging around. I thought he was some sort of Spider-Man lol. After that I wanted to learn everything about the character.

What is the first DAREDEVIL comic you read?

The first Daredevil comic I read was Daredevil annual vol. 1 issue 8. I found it at a flea market that my dad used to take me to. I Renner looking through the comic box and finally seeing that Daredevil guy so I had to get it! It was really interesting because the villain in the story was Bushwacker, and his powers are weird. DD was also teaming up with Deathlok which was an unusual team up, but still an awesome comic to me! I finally had a comic of DD and it made me want to find out more about this character. So anytime my dad was taking my brothers and I to the flea market I was getting those 80s and 90s DD comics that were there.

I guess my Daredvil blanket. It has some Samnee DD art on it. It's very comfy but I would've never thought I would be sleeping with a DD blanket.

Your favorite supporting cast character and why?

I don't know if he counts as a supporting cast member but I love it when DD teams up with Spider-Man. Spider-man is one of DDs closest super hero friends. They have teamed up many times across comics and tv. They also share a lot of similarities. Spider-man also brings light to DD. Spidey is always there for DD to bring him advice and comfort. Or sometimes he just likes to bug him lol. I really like the bond they have and can't wait to see Spidey return in issue 600.


Mike Cardamone

What got you interested in the character?

I used to read comics when I was a young kid, primarily The Flash and Spider-Man; however, as a got a bit older it fell off. I first remember learning about Daredevil with the Ben Affleck movie and while it not being a great movie I did enjoy it at the time. However, it was the Netflix series that caused me to become obsessed with the character and to go back and read/collect the comics.

What is the first DAREDEVIL comic you read?

Man without Fear by Frank Miller as my research led me to say that it was the best starting place for someone new to the character.

What is the most obscure Daredevil-related thing you own?

A small refrigerator magnet with the cover of Daredevil #181 on it

Your favorite supporting cast character and why?

The Black Widow, Nastasha Romanova, because (aside from Foggy) she has been the most consistent and important relationship in Matt's life. She is the one person that Matt can count on no matter what and he would also go through hell for her. Even though I feel that they still love one another, they realize it wouldn't work as things currently stand. With that said they care deeply for one another and aren't afraid to call one another out. Most people would say that Spider-Man is Matt's best friend in the superhero community; however, I would argue that it is Natasha. We've even seen "possible" futures in which they do end up together in some capacity (ex. End of Days, Black Widow #17). In summary, their relationship is messy,complex and nuanced which I find is easier to relate with, which is the reason I love DD in the first place!

When I was a young girl, I was severely bullied for a multitude of things; liking to read, my glasses, the list goes on. When I was exposed to Matt Murdock/ Daredevil, I saw my own circumstances in the way that he acted as a child, the way that he overcame the hardships associated with the cruelty of being a child. I saw myself in him and his mannerisms.

Your favorite supporting cast character and why?

There are several that I really like, such as Foggy Nelson, of course, as well as Ben Urich, Karen Page and Stick, but I gotta go with Elektra for pretty well obvious reasons: she's sexy, looks great, is a bad-ass, and is a very compelling character, psychologically speaking.

Van

What got you interested in the character?

When I was a kid my best friend was a Spider-Man fan and he shared a copy of a SM/DD teamup. I thought DD was cool and I borrowed one of his issues of Daredevil. That's when I found out Matt was blind and my mind was blown. I was used to seeing X-Men or superheroes who were stacked with so many different powers and abilities they were almost gods, but DD introduced to a superhero who had almost no powers and was so impossibly vulnerable and had a lot of factors stacked against him for most of his life, it impressed me even more that he still went out and tried his best to help protect people. Daredevil entirely changed how I define 'superhero'.

What is the first DAREDEVIL comic you read?

DD #181. There were so many threads happening, Bullseye obsessing over Daredevil, learning about Matt's secret identity and outing him to Kingpin, killing Elektra, even Punisher made an appearance, I had to know everything.

Your favorite supporting cast character and why?

Foggy. I love all the superheroes and antiheroes who filter in and out of Daredevil's life, but Foggy isn't just an important part of Matt's life, he's integral to keeping Matt grounded so that he doesn't end up like the Punisher. Foggy isn't exciting or bombastic, he's not out running across rooftops or helping/rescuing DD when he needs it, but he loves Matt like family and balances out the superhero side of Matt's life with normality, with different, usually very LOUD opinions on Matt's Crazy Life. Sometimes Foggy rescues Matt in a very different way. Often he's Matt's Jiminy Cricket, and Matt needs that. They need each other and I very much enjoy that they don't have a perfect relationship, but they're willing to work to keep it alive.

Genesis Malakh, or Mikey the Genesaur. Also known as Vapor Man.

What got you interested in the character?

I think my initial exposure to Daredevil was through the 1994 Spider-Man animated series. I was immediately taken by his heavily shaded design. He just looked so dark and cool, though I misunderstood his radar sense, despite the show explaining it pretty well, overall. Somehow, possibly because of the red visualization they used, I thought his mask temporarily returns his sight, but that he's limited to a red spectrum of colour perception. I later encountered him in the Spider-Man game for Dreamcast, then the Daredevil movie (which I liked a lot at the time), then other games like Marvel Nemesis and Ultimate Alliance (why he was never playable in Marvel vs. Capcom is beyond me), and only then, after collecting a decent amount of Wolverine, Spider-Man, Iron Man, and Spider-Woman comics, did I finally turn my attention to comics specifically featuring the Man Without Fear. I think what kept me interested has a lot to do with the fact that his most defining feature is a disability, rather than something like superhuman strength or powers of flight. That he can't see is central to what makes him so cool.

What is the first DAREDEVIL comic you read?

That's hard to say. I started picking up so many cheap floppies and interesting trades from comic shops all at once that I really can't remember which was my first. It may well have been Daredevil #38, in which Doctor Doom body-swaps with DD, or vol. 2 #1 for the Guardian Devil arc, Daredevil Annual #4 (Atlantis Attacks), or something during Ann Nocenti's run (presumably one of the guest appearance books, like #249 with Wolverine or #283 with Captain America).

What is the most obscure Daredevil-related thing you own?

I don't have anything obscure featuring Daredevil. I have the yellow Legends figure, as well as another, far less posable figure modeled after the Ben Affleck look and packaged with a reprint of Daredevil #164, a chunky magnet from Target, a poster from Walmart featuring Michael Lark art, and two T-shirts that I love and wear to death: an unofficial piece from TeeFury that reads, "There are times when the law is not enough," and an official one from Walmart using the cover from Daredevil Black & White #1 "Super Issue". That's all the DD merch I own.

Your favorite supporting cast character and why?

Probably the Black Widow. I consider Matt's relationship with Natasha to be his healthiest one, despite having its own problems, and they made a good team. Not sure if he should count, but I often love a good DD/Spider-Man teamup. An obvious answer is Foggy, of course. He's a little too varied in his portrayals, but maybe that's why he works so well for many different writers - he's malleable enough to fit the needs of the story. I rather like his Netflix characterisation, as he's less of a wimp and isn't as willing to take Matt's crap.

Isaac Rodriguez

What got you interested in the character?

While the '94 Spider-Man cartoon exposed me to DD, it was the Daredevil movie that gave me a good summary of the character & the separate space the he dwells in.

What is the first DAREDEVIL comic you read?

I don't remember exactly. I started buying DD comics like crazy after I saw the movie so whatever the current & recent back issues were at the time...a good amount of Marvel Knights stuff. I will say that the first complete stories I got my hands on were Last Rites (issue 300) & the issues after that featuring The Owl.

Your top 3 writers and top 3 artists on DAREDEVIL?

I'm definitely gonna go with Frank Miller (of course), Brian Michael Bendis (of course again) & I really enjoyed what Ann Nocenti brought to the table. Artists? I really felt at home with Alex Maleev's art--it always felt like Daredevil. John Romita Jr. had a style that felt close or reminecent to a golden age touch but with that blunt 80's burst of bold lines & content. Yet, I'll always favor David Mack over the rest. I just marvel at all the different ways he brings his vision to life & getting lost in his art is always welcome.

What is the most obscure Daredevil-related thing you own?

I wouldn't say I have anything super obscure. I have a couple of old novels, a couple of visual novel dvds, some old cards, things like that.

Your favorite supporting cast character and why?

The Kingpin. he's the ultimate soap opera character in that he can be used in a variety of ways over long periods of time. He can be the personal antagonist (to Daredevil), he can branch out and be the ultimate baddie for multiple characters, he can be the lesser of two evils & throughout it all, you can always see where he is coming from.

Your top 3 writers and top 3 artists on DAREDEVIL?

It begins an ends with Miller for me. Such a huge impact. I have to give a nod to Janson during that time as well. Early days you can't compete with Lee or O'Neil. Later years I liked the Bendis run and the Brubaker run. I think Chichester deserves more credit. Gene Colan is still a standout.

What is the most obscure Daredevil-related thing you own?

Depends on your definition of obscure. If you mean hard to find I own every DD issue, every variant and every appearance of DD ever published. If you mean strange I have this weird transformer-type car which defies description.

Your favorite supporting cast character and why?

Kuljit of course! You could argue that Foggy is the only true supporting cast character that has been with him through the years so he is the obvious choice. But for me, it is Elektra. There is a dynamic that they have that I feel is unique in comics. One of Miller's many great contributions.


Pete - one of those old timers from the Board!

What got you interested in the character?

DD was the middle story in an anthology title that included the Hulk and the Fantastic Four. Somewhere in there also no with the Gamma Rays and Cosmic Rays and strongest mortal on earth and Doc Doom ( as great as all those things were / are) was a blind guy. It didn’t take me long to figure out where the ‘man without fear’ bit came from. From day one then, Matt Murdock was an inspiration, someone who did what he did despite the odds stacked against him. How could anyone NOT be inspired by that?

What is the first DAREDEVIL comic you read?

That British Marvel reprint anthology - The Mighty World Of Marvel, issue number 20, sometime around February 1973. A weekly affair, it had started around October ‘72 with Hulk, Spider-Man and FF reprints, right from the very beginning, about half an American comic story for each, picking up where it left off the following week. Spider-Man soon proved popular enough to get his own weekly, backed by Thor, so in #20 DD replaced him, to much fanfare on the cover. This happened to be my VERY first taste of Marvel, and the DD story was the first half of the Lee / Everett origin. You could call it Love at first sight.

I’m not too sure for obscure but I do have a Nelson and Murdock coffee mug.

Your favorite supporting cast character and why?

The answer is Foggy Nelson. I don’t know how it could be anyone else. Franklin Percy Nelson is Matt Murdock’s best friend. He’s his brother. He keeps Matt grounded, no matter how much they may fight or argue. Back in Brubaker’s run, when Matt went to prison and Foggy was apparently “killed”, Matt loses it. He starts beating criminals in prison, torturing others. Matt says he’s always kept Daredevil in check, and I have to believe it’s because of Foggy’s “death” that he lets loose. Foggy Nelson is the best supporting cast member but frankly, he’s just as important as Matt.


Camilo Mahecha

What got you interested in the character?

Back in 2003 I was in college rediscovering comics when i came across copies in Spanish of Sin City and 300 by Frank Miller and man, i really really loved them. Having reading previously DKR and Year One the next natural step (going backwards) was to check out Daredevil.. but i wasn't interested at all. Here en Colombia the character wasn't really known at the time, and for the little i could see (without reading ANY DD comic mind you) he seemed to me as a cross between an unfunny Spiderman and a watered down Batman… the movie with Ben Affleck that year didn't help much to pick ANY interest at all.

So i didn't have much hope when i found an old Mexican translation of this book called “NACER DE NUEVO” better known in english as BORN AGAIN but i remember digging the cover when i realized that the artist was the same of Year One so i decided to give it a shot.

And that was it.

Until this day Born Again is still my favorite graphic novel even surpassing DKR and Year One, and Matt Murdock became my undisputed favorite character and the only one i haven't stopped reading since, and that was 15 years ago. More than any other character Matt is probably the one that has been in the lowest points of life, losing the most... heck losing everything in different moments of his life and yet he always finds strength to get up and start over, to never stay beaten, and to keep fighting as the stubborn son of a boxer will do. I relate to that and i have been inspired by that over and over again over the years.

Your favorite supporting cast character and why?

Ben Urich, to me he is the ultimate pov character in the DD mythos, its a shame that we haven't seen much of him since what? Shadowland? that was 2011. I think as a character Ben has a purpose akin to what Commissioner Gordon has with Batman: the ally outside the trained vigilantes, the human factor, the everyday man factor that i think is much missed in the DD comics these days.

Waid, Bendis, Miller. Maleev, Samnee for sure. As far as artists whose interpretations of DD I especially enjoy but not necessarily long term DD artists - Rivera and Sienkiewicz.

What is the most obscure Daredevil-related thing you own?

I technically own the DD desk tray from the Defenders lootcrate? Not necessarily used though. After that it would have to be a tie between my DD Funko pop tshirt and large DD tsum tsum. Not necessarily obscure, but definitely well loved!

Your favorite supporting cast character and why?

Considering the full history of the character -- his friendship with Foggy is one for the ages. I love that they've been through so much but are still there for each other?

Perhaps a less popular choice, but also packs a punch for me -- Elektra. I suppose she's not really much of DD supporting cast member now in the comics, but there is just something about her dynamic with DD, both on the show and whenever their paths occasionally cross in the comics, that really pops.
