DAREDEVIL COVER GALLERY...
C'mon, you have to admit - a blind superhero is quite an outrageous concept for a comicbook character, and one that perhaps only Smilin' STAN LEE could have come up with. I wonder how he managed to sell the idea to his publisher, Merry MARTIN GOODMAN - it surely couldn't have been easy.
"How's that again? He swings about the city on a nylon rope and fights gun-totin' gangsters and super-powered criminals... but he's blind?! Are you outta your gourd, Stan?"
"Calm down, Martin. Yes, he can't see, but due to an accident with a radioactive cannister, he's developed a kind of radar sense and his other senses have been heightened to an unbelievable degree!"
"You're right, Stan - it is unbelievable. You're fired!"
And thus endeth the MARVEL AGE.
At least, that's how it could've happened, but thankfully didn't. Ol' Horn-head is still around today and remains one of MARVEL's most popular heroes amongst the ranks of comics fandom.
"Hey, I've got an idea - let's hold the show right here!"
What show? Why, the Daredevil Cover Gallery show, of course. So, without any further ado ('cos all our ado is done), here it is!
