Comics You Should Read Before Binge Watching ‘Daredevil’ Season 2
We’re just one day away from the return of Netflix’s Daredevil series, and this time, The Punisher and Elektra are coming along for the ride. To celebrate this, Comixology has a fortnight long sale on some of the best Daredevil, Punisher and Elektra stories in recent memory so you can catch up on the comics before the new series begins.
The sale includes the first volumes of classic Daredevil runs, including Frank Miller and Klaus Janson‘s legendary character defining work with the character from the eighties. Also by Miller and David Mazzucchelli is the seminal Daredevil: Born Again which was a major influence on the first season of the television series.
One of the real highlights of the sale are the first volumes of critically acclaimed recent Elektra and Punisher series which are great introductions to the characters for new readers. Haden Blackman and Mike Del Mundo’s Elektra is especially worth picking up, if only for the Del Mundo’s gorgeous interiors which are nothing like anything you’ll see in any other comic. The story is no slouch either, as it takes Elektra all over the Marvel Universe, from Monster Island to Atlantis, on the quest for the assassin of assassins, Bloody Lips.
Greg Rucka and Marco Checchetto’s recent Punisher series took Frank Castle to new places by shifting the focus away from The Punisher himself and instead on how his actions affect the people around him, and also introduced a new ally in Rachel Alves, a former marine whose entire family was gunned down on her wedding day.
The sale also includes the first volumes of Daredevil by such superstar creative teams as Brian Michael Bendis and Alex Maleev, Ed Brubaker and Michael Lark, and Mark Waid and Chris Samnee. The sale lasts until March 27, giving you plenty of time to get stocked up with extra stories starring Daredevil, Elektra and The Punisher for after you’ve binged the latest series.
