Daredevil #191 - Frank Miller art & cover

Frank Miller
Daredevil v1 #191, 1983 - A climactic battle between DD and Bullseye becomes the obsession and fantasy of a troubled young boy. Frank Miller's pencils, inked by Terry Austin, are sharper yet generally less spontaneous. This is largely offset by the formidable layouts and masterful sequencing. Many of the scenes occur in a hospital room, where minimal backgrounds convey a starkness and sterility. Images crossing over several panels, enlarged panels, repetitive panels and more contribute to exquisitely designed pages. Miller accompanies one of his finest Daredevil stories with a widely cross-hatched, statuesque cover. This is number 33 of 33 Daredevil issues with Miller art and/or covers.

  1. Just pointing out that the Daredevil/Bullseye battle that took place in a television studio (and therefore filmed so the young boy could watch) happened in Daredevil #146.
