Jack Kirby/Bill Everett cvr; origin & 1st app. of Daredevil (Matt Murdock); 1st app of Karen Page, Foggy NelsonYou 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.
Daredevil #1 has been consistently trending upwards in value and significance, slowly but surely becoming one of the biggest of Marvel’s Silver Age debuts, nudging his way into the pack with the likes of Spider-Man and The Hulk. With the news of Charlie Cox being the first Netflix Marvel actor to make the transition to the MCU, interest in Daredevil #1 has never been higher. The stamp of approval from QES should serve as a clarion call that this 9.4 copy is in exemplary condition, boasting a glossy coat and vibrant colors, while remaining in impeccable shape throughout the years, there are only a handful of copies grading higher up the census. The last copy at grade sold for $67,850, and we fully expect this amazing book to set a new record in our current Event Auction.
