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 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.



Since the surprise cameo of Charlie Cox reprising his role as Daredevil in “Dr. Strange in the Multiverse of Madness,” this comic has seen a huge uptick in interest. Many of Marvel’s Silver Age keys have shown amazing growth in the past few years, so it is a great time to invest in this classic issue. This copy is an incredible example of an NM+ comic, with no visible signs of the passage of time, this nearly pristine book is sure to be a hotly contested lot at auction. With the continued success and anticipation for future MCU installments, it is no longer a secret that Daredevil will soon be appearing on Disney+ as a character in Marvel’s upcoming “She-Hulk: Attorney at Law” series, which will serve to drive the value of this book further into the stratosphere.
