Daredevil #176 - Frank Miller art & cover

Daredevil v1 #176, 1981 - His "radar sense" now gone, Daredevil seeks out his old mentor while Elektra shadows him from a distance. Frank Miller's triangular-composed cover has its merits, but combined with the masthead and contest promotion, the results are too chaotic for my tastes. The artwork fares better inside, where Miller continues his carefully planned sequences within distinctive layouts. Highlights of this story include a despondent DD amidst a heavy rainstorm (see interior page below) and his girlfriend Heather Glenn's emotional torment on page 6. This story was later reprinted in Elektra Saga #2. This is number 18 of 33 Daredevil issues with Miller art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Miller or Daredevil issues.
