Daredevil #52 - Barry Windsor Smith art & cover

Daredevil v1 #52, 1969 - Holding a hostage, the deranged Starr Saxon now must contend with both Daredevil and the Black Panther. Barry Smith's cover is more interesting than previous efforts, although the perspective lines seem irrelevant and gratuitous. Though his drawings still lack polish, the artist continues to push the boundaries of layout and panel sequencing. The vertigo-inducing chase scene on page 8 and the Panther's acrobatics (see interior page below) are but two fine examples. Of Smith's three early Daredevil stories, this one is the most visually intriguing. This is number 3 of 6 Daredevil issues with Smith art and/or covers.
