"PROPHECY!" FAVOURITE COMICS OF THE PAST - PART TWENTY-NINE...
I'm sure I meant to do a post on this ish of DAREDEVIL a while
ago and thought I actually had done, but I can't find it anywhere on the
blog. Therefore, there's a chance I'm repeating myself here, but this is a
comic that's worth it. I bought this ish in Portsmouth in 1985 and recog-
nised it as the classic it is from the off! Great story (by DENNY O'NEIL
at his finest) and great art (by DAVID MAZZUCCHELLI), it's an ob-
ject lesson on how comicbooks should be done. The plot weaves an
incident from the past into the present and is done with such con-
summate skill that it seems not the slightest bit far-fetched.
Whenever I look at this comic I can't help but think of my bedsit
in Shearer Road in Buckland and a big plate of egg & chips in EVE'S
CAFE at the bottom of Albert Road in Southsea. In fact, I think I'll re-
visit yesteryear by pouring myself a large glass of milk and re-reading
this classic tale one more time. You must excuse me, but the past
beckons and I can never resist its call.
If you don't already have this one in your collection, you
really should track down a copy on eBay right away.
