Daredevil v1 #164, 1980 - Ben Ulrich, a reporter for the Daily Bugle, pieces together the secret of Daredevil's identity. The hero's origin is retold, revealing new facts and details. Frank Miller's drawings are capable, but it's his pacing and page compositions that stand out. The crucial accident that changed Matt Murdock's life seems to happen instantly, while later in the story, a mobster's heart attack slows to a crawl. Miller also masterfully uses repetition and variation to full effect. Wally Wood, who drew some of the earliest issues of the series, returns to ink this pieta-themed cover. Loosely executed, the artist's last Marvel effort is nonetheless impactful. This is number 6 of 33 Daredevil issues with Miller art and/or covers and number 8 of 8 Daredevil issues with Wood art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Miller, Wood or Daredevil issues.
