This arrived today from Speedyhen.
It’s the second Epic Collection to feature the Nocenti/Romita Jr run on Daredevil, which features some of my favourite JR jr art.
The reproduction here really serves the art well, particularly the bold colours which make the original issues look fairly washed-out in comparison.
This tranche of issues features the Ultron story and a lot of the Mephisto issues, which give JR jr the chance to get a bit more abstract and experimental with his art.
There’s also quite a bit of extra material interspersed throughout the book, including original art.
My only slight criticism is that a lot of tie-in issues and annuals are thrown in to the collection, which I’m not too bothered about - I would have rather had another few issues of the main title.
As it is, we’re still going to need another couple of these Epic books to finish collecting the Nocenti run in full: one to come directly after this one, and one to go back and cover her earliest issues, which haven’t made it to the Epic line yet (which publishes its volumes out of chronological order). Hopefully we’ll see them soon.
