Kirby cvr; Fantastic Four app.; 2nd app. Electro
Stan Lee is a creator who always hedges his bets when rolling out new characters, as he weaves the Fantastic Four into Daredevil #2 to increase sales and interest in the start-up super-hero. "The Man" deftly applied the same trick a year earlier in the classic, Amazing Spider-Man #1. The strategy works for the story and for Marvel's bottom line, as this is one heck of a jam-packed action fest, and the addition of Spidey nemesis Electro only serves to shore up the overall appeal of this book even further. The cover art by Jack Kirby does a spectacular job of encapsulating the action within, a tale that involves Matt Murdock's attempt to help the FF renew the lease on the Baxter Building, which is interrupted by the electric villain's evil machinations.
Presenting an immaculate appearance, this is one impressive copy of Daredevil #2, the whole kit and caboodle just reeks with high quality, the glowing colors reveal no evidence of their decades of existence, with bold reds, striking yellow, and cool greens and blues, the introduction of Electro is as clean and fresh as the day it rolled off the printing press. There are only two copies above this one on the census, and, thanks to the recent announcement of Charlie Cox returning to the role of Matt Murdock in “Secret Wars” we expect to see a serious uptick in interest in all things Hornhead.
