You can tell from the Spider-Man plug on the cover that Marvel had, by the time of this book's release, become known as a hero machine, pumping out high-gloss, high-energy heroes and heroines that sold like hotcakes. In this case, the House of Ideas picked up a Biro hero name that had been left to linger, dusted it off, and added the enticing gimmick of making their DD a blind lawyer, adding both modern intrigue and a great "hook". It would take a while for the character to fully hit its stride, but the dynamic Kirby cover and ravishing Everett interiors attracted readers and established Daredevil as a unique and mature alternative to cosmic adventuring and teenage angst.
Tied for second-highest, this sterling copy boasts nearly flawless white and sparkling colors. As with many of the other Marvel keys, copies of this
issue tend to turn up only in low grades, making higher-grade copies of this book irresistible to collectors and a sure-fire investment. Time payments are available.
