    Miller's stint on Daredevil is one of my all-time favorite Marvel runs, so Miller all the way.

    I feel like you should of listed more options for the pole though, like Bendis, Brubaker and Nocenti.

    In the late 90s, I seem to recall a DD run before Joe Q's Marvel Knights:

    It was highly touted as a "Return to the Lighter Feel of the earlier 60s DD with a Sense of Humor"
    Was I imagining this?!?

    Which issues were these?

    Miller's run is one of the older comic runs that I still am able to really read and enjoy. I feel like for whatever reason, it holds up better than a lot of other runs.

    I also really loved Brubaker and Lark's run.
    Ideas never die.

    You're thinking of the Karl Kesel run. It was issues #353-364. Joe Kelly came after him as writer up to issues #375. Both runs have the lighter, retro style for the character.

    Cool - Thanks, Rincewind. Interesting strategy for DD after the 70s and 80s.

    It was an interesting time. Bob Harras had taken over as Editor in Chief, replacing the 5 separate line EiC. D G Chichester has done the Fall from Grace storyline, but was removed from the title after his follow up story. There were some fill in arcs, the J M DeMatteis took over as writer, then quit less than a year later due to editorial interference (a common complaint at the time). Kesel came in with his approach and got rave reviews. He only lasted a year, but Joe Kelly kept the tone when he took over the book. A little later, the title was relaunched under the Marvel Knights banner with Kevin Smith and Joe Quesada.

    I will definitely be picking up the Epic collection that get the Kesel run. I will look at the Epic with Kelly's work and pick it up if it looks interesting.

    Begins and ends with Bendis for me. Never read the character before & haven't read much after.

    Ann Nocenti saved Daredevil after a less than stellar few years after Millers run. She did 4 1/2 years on the book an her run is definitely in the top 5 ever.

    Daredevil is one of those few comics that for the most part has had consistently good writers. I voted other because my favorite run is Ed Brubaker's, Bendis left him in a tough spot and Brubaker ran with it and created one hell of a run himself. Daredevil is also my favorite Marvel hero and the few Marvel heroes that I have read quite a bit of.
    My order:
    Brubaker
    Miller
    Nocenti
    Bendis
    Waid (only because I have not finished reading his run, but I love the hell out of Mark Waid)!

    Waid did marvelous stuff with Matt but
    #1 Miller
    #2 Bendis
    Then it is a Hell’s Kitchen rooftop fall until you reach the next group of truly sensational creators like Brubaker, Nocenti, Waid, etc. DD is a character that brings out the best in those that play in his sandbox.

    Probably Karl Kesel. I would argue that Joe Kelly had a very underrated run that combined the light heartedness of Kesel with a bit more substance and stakes. Both runs blend fairly seamlessly and are quite good.

    Ed Brubaker's run is my favorite. He made me a huge fan of the character.
