*Marvel: A beautiful item for this spotlight, the seventh issue of Daredevil, the Man Without Fear! 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 and harrowing battle in which Daredevil, hopelessly outgunned by the vastly superior might of the Sub-Mariner, nevertheless shows such courage and determination that even Namor’s scaly heart is moved to compassion. A beautiful piece of work – and, in this instance, a beautiful copy, cents, graded FN/VF, with flat, white interior pages, tight staples, vibrant cover colour and gloss, and only two very minor flaws- a tiny diagonal crease in the upper right cover, and the faintest of ‘stacking’ smudges at the logo – precluding a still higher grade for this outstanding item. On sale at £250.
