“The measure of a man is not in how he gets knocked to the mat, it is in how he gets up.” Those are the words blind attorney Matthew Murdock’s father lived and died by. Prizefighter Battlin’ Jack Murdock’s murder set in motion a chain of events that exploded with a new super hero swinging out of New York City’s Hell’s Kitchen: the blind acrobat Daredevil! In this retelling of the Man without Fear’s early career, the Eisner Award-winning team of Jeph Loeb and Tim Sale (HULK: GRAY, SPIDER-MAN: BLUE) have taken an inspiring action-adventure story and blended it with a romantic comedy. The result, highlighted by Sale’s dazzling ink washes and Matt Hollingsworth’s spectacular colors, is the heartwarming and heartbreaking tale of two young people in love: Matthew Murdock and Karen Page. Collecting DAREDEVIL: YELLOW #1-6.
