Daredevil v1 #174, 1981 - A ninja cult known as The Hand is intent on killing Daredevil's alter ego. Elektra, his former lover-turned-assassin, intervenes in only her second full appearance. Frank Miller employs fewer but larger panels than usual within precisely designed layouts. In one superb example, two parallel-recurring scenes reside on the same pages, separated by their panel orientations. Matt Murdock and his law partner quietly meet in side-by-side vertical panels, while Elektra battles a trio of ninjas on the horizontals. These innovations and more are a testament to Miller's skills. This story was later reprinted in Elektra Saga #2. This is number 16 of 33 Daredevil issues with Miller art and/or covers.
