I've been digging deep into Daredevil now that I'm staring the end of Affected dead in the face, because my next comic's gonna be something involving the Man Without Fear. Much as Frank Miller's run on the character is the one that (deservedly) gets the most love, I've got a huge soft spot for the run by David Mazzucchelli and Denny O'Neil that directly precedes Miller's Magnum opus Born Again. The best issue of the lot is #220, which I think is the first comic to really bring out the tremendously bad vibes that hit superhero comics in full effect once Dark Knight Returns and Watchmen were released the following year. Plus, holy shit dude, Mazzucchelli could really draw. I wish he still did stuff that looks like this. Anyway, I pick apart the first-ever "grim and gritty" superhero comic on this week's installment of my Robot 6 column, which you can read by clicking right here.
