When I was younger, in my adolescent ignorance I always passed this guy off as a Spider-Man clone. What I mean by that is, often times Spidey and DD would team-up, and DD was prone to battling Spideys foes regularly. However, I recently picked up issue #105 of volume 2 on a whim and I’ve been absolutely hooked ever since. Fast-forward to now and I’ve read and re-read Frank Miller’s entire masterpiece of a run, and I am currently saving for the Bendis omnibus. Ed Brubaker’s pulp/noir style of writing is superb, and has flowed flawlessly from where Bendis left off. I’m proud to say that this is THE book that keeps me coming to the comic shop each month.
Any other DD fans out there?
