Daredevil Collected Editions Reference

Many who either know me or follow this blog know, Daredevil is my favorite comic book character. Over the years, I have found many wonderful resources across the web that are useful when one is looking to get into a particular comic book character, title, or creative team.  Where is a good place to start?  What issues are in a particular story arc?  Which stories are collected in which editions?  Are they trade paperbacks or hardcovers?  I decided that I wanted to piece together a file that would help answer these types of questions for others interested in my favorite character.

What I naively believed would be a fairly simple project has, over the last three months, snowballed into the spreadsheet that I am calling the Daredevil Collected Editions Reference (screen shot below).  It took me a few attempts to figure out just how I wanted to lay things out, and even then there was a bit of a learning curve in regards to Google Sheets.  Who knew that the process for embedding an image in a cell was so convoluted?  So after a couple of months working on this pet project of mine, I believe that it is sufficiently organized to begin sharing it with the world.  The file can be found by following this link: Daredevil Collected Editions Reference.

There are currently three tabs included in the spreadsheet.  The first is a 'Welcome/Read Me First' tab that offers a brief overview of the file.  The second is a visual guide to each issue that has been published over Daredevil's fifty plus year history and which collected volumes they have been reprinted in.  The third is a suggested reading order that I am still working on (I'm not sure that I like the layout).  At this time it is a chronological guide from issue #1 from 1964 through the most current issue.  I will continue to keep this as updated as possible.  We already know of a handful of new collected editions scheduled to be released in the coming months.

Hopefully you will find it either interesting or helpful, or maybe even both.  As it continues to be a work in progress, please let me know if you have any questions.  Feedback is also very much appreciated!
