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 by pumping out high-gloss, high-energy heroes and heroines, which sold like hotcakes. In this case, the House of Ideas picked up a Biro hero name, which had been left to linger, dusted it off and added the enticing gimmick of making their Daredevil a blind lawyer, adding both modern intrigue and a great hook. It would take a while for the character to fully hit his 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.


Electrifying yellows and reds dominate the VF/NM cover of this Silver Age key, the bright hues bound off the page just like Daredevil himself. With keen corners and solid binding, this is an appealing high-grade copy of an important origin issue that looms large in Marvel's history. It's fairly obvious that the Devil of Hell's Kitchen will rear his horned head again on TV or in the movies in years to come, so now is a prime time to pick up a copy of his first appearance.

Overstreet Guide 2018 VF/NM (9.0) value = $7,475.
