Daredevil #43 - Jack Kirby cover

Daredevil v1 #43 marvel 1960s silver age comic book cover art by Jack Kirby
 Jack Kirby
Daredevil v1 #43, 1968 - Daredevil pits himself against Captain America in this early battle between heroes. Jack Kirby's cover seems more distorted than usual, especially the foreshortened limbs. Still, his graphically harsh, almost Cubist approach is undeniably striking. Perhaps due to his greater popularity, Cap is more prominently featured than the title character. Other artists in this Marvel silver age superhero comic include Gene Colan and Tom Palmer. This is number 7 of 8 Daredevil issues with Kirby art and/or covers.

the original colan cover had daredevil clobbering cap, and, the story goes, kirby saw it in the office and said, "no one clobbers my guy!" and redrew it on the spot. my friend owns the original of the colan cover with "hold, jack will redraw" in the margin!

The original Colan cover was rejected (maybe Cap was taking too much of a beating):

Always love seeing "rejected" covers. Thanks for the link!
