Daredevil Arrives in the Nick of Time for UAT Crime Lit Class


Students in the HUM388 Crime Literature course are gearing up to read the Frank Miller-Frank Mazzucchelli Daredevil “Born Again” storyline, and it coincides perfectly with Netflix’s April 10 rollout of the Daredevil live action series from Marvel Television.

If you’re unfamiliar with this groundbreaking storyline from the 1980s, it features Daredevil facing his darkest days as he battles to the finish against a seemingly unbeatable crime lord and his own personal demons. The gritty storyline was a return to the title for Miller that coincided with publication of yet another classic run on Batman, The Dark Knight. Both stories cemented Miller’s place in comic book history and helped to set the tone for  the modern era of superheroes.

Students in the Crime Literature class have been creating original works based off Sherlock Holmes stories and Agatha Christie-style whodunnits, so it will be fun to see what they create after they’ve spent a few weeks in Hell’s Kitchen with the Man Without Fear.
