*Marvel: After a little artistic floundering in his early issues, the Sightless Swashbuckler lucked out when the superlative Wally Wood took over illustrating his adventures. This is probably the finest Wood issue, marked not only by the premiere of the red Daredevil costume, (replacing his original outfit, which actually looked like it was designed by a blind man…) but also by a genuinely gripping battle in which Daredevil, overpowered by the vastly superior might of the Sub-Mariner, shows such courage and determination that even Namor’s scaly heart is moved to compassion. This is a VG- pence copy, generally attractive, but with minor cover wear and stress, especially at the right edge. Also, some pillock put the price stamp right in the middle of Namor’s face! Despite these drawbacks, a superior second-hand copy of an epic issue. VG- p £85.
