Daredevil Volume 1, Issue 18: “There Shall Come a Gladiator!”

In which Foggy Nelson causes trouble
Arts • Views: 21,774

Published in July 1966, issue #18 of Daredevil featured a cover by John Romita and a storyline in which Foggy Nelson is trying to impress Karen Page — by pretending to be Daredevil himself. Needless to say, things don’t go as Foggy planned and he ends up having to fight the Gladiator, who makes his first ever appearance in this issue. Foggy gets his ass thoroughly kicked, of course, until the real Daredevil shows up and bails him out. That Foggy.

Like most of our Silver Age comics, the Lizard Collection copy of this issue is in great shape, with sharp corners, bright inks, and white pages throughout.

Daredevil Volume 1, Issue 26: “Stilt-Man Strikes Again!”

Also featuring the Masked Marauder

In episode 13 of the amazingly great Netflix Daredevil series, the Stilt-Man costume made an appearance in Melvin Potter’s workshop:

And here’s one of the first appearances of the Stilt-Man character (who will probably be featured in future Marvel productions) in issue #26, published in March 1967, with cover art and pencilling by Gene Colan.

(This cover from the Lizard Collection is in great shape, with super-bright inks and sharp corners.)

Daredevil Volume 1, Issue 16: “Enter…Spider-Man!”

Matt Murdock vs. Peter Parker
Arts • Views: 30,988

Daredevil #16, published in May 1966, featured one of those “mistaken identity” battles between Daredevil and yes, Spider-Man. The Masked Marauder tricked Spider-Man into thinking Daredevil was his enemy; Marvel superheroes were always falling for this one.

And what’s more, DD kicked Spidey’s ass. I don’t need to tell you how difficult that was.

(The Lizard Collection copy of this classic comic is in excellent condition, with super-bright inks, white pages, and just a few creases on the cover.)

Daredevil Volume 1, Issue 13: “The Secret of Ka-Zar’s Origin!”

Also starring Maa-Gor the man-ape
Arts • Views: 25,791

The issue following Daredevil #12, published in February 1966, sported a beautiful cover by the late great Jack Kirby, who also shared pencilling credit with John Romita Sr. for the whole issue.

This one features the origin story of loincloth aficionado Ka-Zar, who (shockingly!) turns out to be the brother of the Plunderer, that pirate with the ray gun on the previous issue’s cover.

Daredevil Volume 1, Issue 12: “Sightless, in a Savage Land!”

First Marvel comic drawn by John Romita Sr.
Arts • Views: 25,217

The new Netflix series “Daredevil” is out, and it’s really good — much better than the sub-standard film released a few years ago. It captures the comic’s dark feeling beautifully.

And in honor of the excellent debut of this new series I’ll be posting images of the Silver Age Daredevil comics contained in the Lizard Collection, our very large collection of comics from the 60s. We have dozens of issues of Daredevil; he was always one of my favorite Marvel characters, because he was blind but he turned this disability into a huge advantage. It was a brilliant concept, and it totally captured my imagination when I was a wee lad.

Here’s the cover of issue #12, published in January 1966, featuring the Tarzan-like Ka-Zar and yes, that’s a pirate with a ray gun. Because why not? This issue was the first Marvel comic drawn by the great illustrator John Romita Sr.
