To summarize, you have to read Underboss - if you like contemporary super-hero comics or simply the character of Dardedevil.

Martin Scorsese has nothing on Brian Michael Bendis, whose seminal run on Daredevil earned him the Will Eisner award a few years ago, and right so. Using artist Alex Maleev's gritty style of storytelling reminiscent of Scorsese films and police television dramas, Bendis depicts the rise of gangsters and the disintegration of Matt Murdock's professional and personal life when his secret identity becomes an issue. Bendis focuses on developiing on Murdock's character more than any writer has before.
The physical violence is sparse, but all the more dramatic for is sparsity.

This series is the equivalent of the great American novel over 70-or-so issues, starting here.

As a comic book reader of several decades, I have never seen a writer so adept at depicting a character's established universe. Nor have I seen anyone give Daredevil/Matt Murdock such superb treatment. Bendis outdoes even the famed Frank Miller, in my opinion.
