“Hey, good lookin’! We’ll be back to pick you up later!”

Casual racism, casual sexism, and a whole lotta stupid: the original “Mr. Microphone” ad is a lesson in how they marketed cheap gimmicks in the early 1980s.

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

In which Foggy Nelson causes trouble
Arts • Views: 22,113

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.

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: 31,248

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.)
