- Full Description
Born to a past-his-prime prizefighter, Matt Murdock's luck always ran a step behind his good intentions. When a daring act to save a man's life blinds young Murdock, he finds that the same accident has enhanced his remaining senses to superhuman levels! He becomes Daredevil, a gritty hero born from murder but tempered with the desire to protect the downtrodden. Origin story by Bill Everett, superlative follow-up stories by Wally Wood, then John Romita.
This is it, the first two years of stories starring Marvel's totally original new character, created just after Lee and Ditko (and perhaps Kirby) dreamed up Spider-Man. The first blind superhero, and obviously popular to this day in comics, films, and graphic novels. This is where it all started, with Golden Age veteran Bill Everett (Sub-Mariner) kicking things off, then Wally Wood--in his prime--carrying on with some of his finest superhero work ever.
After Wood's run, we have early work by John Romita, prior to his taking over Spider-Man for his long, long run on that title. And as if that isn't enough, we also have wonderfully unique early work by Gene Colan, who excelled on his own take on Daredevil.
