Professor Young's new book "Daredevil and the Ends of Heroism" is released

"A childhood fan of Miller’s Daredevil, Young takes readers on a personal journey as he seeks to reconcile his love for the comic with his distaste for the fascistic overtones of Miller’s controversial later work.  What he finds will resonate not only with Daredevil fans, but with anyone who has contemplated what it means to be a hero in a heartless world."  Read more at this Rutgers University Press page.
