Right in the middle of the Silver Age of comic books, Marvel released Daredevil #1. The subtitle of the book is The Man without Fear. Daredevil was a quick success, playing out Marvel’s formula of a teenage boy, grappling with growing problems, and finding his unique super power. In this case, Matt Murdock loses his sight, but gains his powers from a radioactive canister.
Daredevil’s heightened senses were a big hit in the Silver Age and continues to the current modern age of comics. This issue can easily clear $1000 in mid to high grade and much more for uber high grade condition.
Of course, this issue was written by Stan Lee. Penciled cover artwork was by the King, Jack Kirby. Interior pencils were by Bill Everett. Of note is that Steve Ditko partook of some inking work as well.
