Hi, I recently found all my old comic books and have become OBSESSED XD I've developed a love for the character of the Kingpin and want to read more However, I am a bit confused as to where to start. I read a few of the amazing spiderman issues where the Kingpin is introduced but I'm really looking for the best stories involving him. I've always stuck to spiderman I read that Frank Miller really made the character his own in the 80's Daredevil comics and I'm intruiged to see this version but I really don't know where to begin and I'm wary about going away from good o'l spidey!! I'm new to this really so I was looking for a graphic novel as oppose to seperate issues that's easy to find and avalible cheaply in the uk? I tried watching the film of Daredevil but I really didn't like this interpretation of the character XD Thanks \:\)

The Gang War crossover in the mid-1980s of Spider-Man and Daredevil were really good. Can't remember the issues #s off the top of my head, but you should be able to google it. Kingpin had his own series (short) in the early 2000s that wasn't too bad. The original Kingpin appearances from the 1960s were awesome and were somewhere in the #40s-60s.

Hope that helps a little.
