Enjoy!Born Again began in Daredevil #227, when Frank Miller, Daredevil’s greatest creator, returned to the title to write the comic alongside the incumbent artist, David Mazzucchelli, who was at the time only beginning to show us the greatness that he was capable of.
In #227, Karen Page, Matt Murdock (Daredevil)’s former girlfriend is now addicted to drugs and doing all sorts of dirty, nasty stuff (pornography, whoring, etc.) to feed her habit. Finally, she sells Daredevil’s secret identity for a fix.The information makes it way up to Daredevil’s nemesis, Wilson Fisk, the so-called Kingpin of Crime.
For the rest of the comic, Fisk systematically “destroys” Matt Murdock’s life - taking away his job, his law license, his money, his reputation, basically everything.Matt tried to fight it, but for all he knows, he is just having the most horrible month ever - he has no reason to suspect that this is all due to a super-criminal.
Until, of course, the final pages of Daredevil #227, which are practically breathtaking in the way that Miller presents the beginning to this story arc, in the way that even at the start of the tale, when all looks bleakest, he manages to get a slight matter of “triumph” mixed in. It’s a beautiful scene.
