Jack Kirby/Bill Everett cvr; origin & 1st app. of Daredevil (Matt Murdock); 1st app of Karen Page, Foggy Nelson
Kentucky CollectionYou 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 character name, which had been left to linger, dusted it off and added the enticing gimmick of making their Daredevil a blind lawyer, providing 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.
A vibrancy not often seen on this cover makes this copy an exemplary example of a true Silver Age classic, Daredevil’s original color scheme has never been brighter as the yellows and reds are striking. This comic is a perennial favorite, with rumors confirmed that Charlie Cox will be reprising his role as Daredevil in the upcoming “Secret Wars” series, this issue is potentially looking at another radical price hike.
