Marvel Fanfare #1 - Frank Miller art

Marvel Fanfare v1 #1, 1982 - Printed on better paper, this prestige format series features Spider-man, Ka-Zar and the X-men in a single story. A Daredevil back-up tale is referenced by Frank Miller on the back cover. He was DD's series artist at the same, but this work is more crudely drawn and composed. Other artists in this issue include Michael Golden. This is number 1 of 2 Marvel Fanfare issues with Miller art and/or covers. Not sure what kind of smoke billows out in globules (something chemical perhaps?), but it's an odd abstraction that adds little to the aesthetic.

  1. The buildings in the background are nicely drawn in a Wlll Eisner manner. What is Daredevil sitting on?

    1. Perched on the edge maybe? Your Eisner reference makes sense since Miller was heavily influenced by him.
