Every comic studio has its mainstays, and popularity swings with pop culture. The Marvel movies have thrust the Avengers lineup into the spotlight, making A-listers out of even the lovable losers of the Guardians of the Galaxy, who spend a significant part of the last few decades wallowing in near obscurity. Then there’s characters that have enjoyed some of the best writing in the industry, some of the most iconic moments, who haven’t captured the general public’s attention in quite the same way. Daredevil is one such character. (I will note that the Daredevil series on Netflix was very good and is worthy of your attention.
