Spotlight: Daredevil: Born Again
“Born Again” is a 1986 comic book story arc that appeared in the Marvel Comics series Daredevil. Written by Frank Miller, and drawn by David Mazzucchelli, the storyline first appeared in Daredevil #227–231.
Miller returned to Marvel and Daredevil in 1986 where he produced a mini-series within the book’s regular numbering sub-titled “Born Again.” Like he did with The Dark Knight Returns, Miller finds New York City ruled under the thumb of the Kingpin who turns his sights on Daredevil, determined to destroy him by ruining him financially and tearing down his reputation. He succeeds, but in a final act of faith, Miller brings DD back from the brink allowing readers some hope that no matter how bad things might get (even in the current state of the comics industry) there’s always a chance for salvation. Following the nose dive into despair taken by Watchmen and his own Dark Knight Returns, Miller offered a path out of the abyss if anyone cared to take it.
