Description

The item up for bid is the historic original art to Daredevil #1 page #2 by Bill Everett from 1964. The page is the first story page and THE first appearance of Daredevil within the story. The 1/3 page splash features the iconic DD used as the corner box art from issue #1 through #4 as well as numerous merchandising items throughout the last 52 years! Because the original cover no longer exists and the first page of the issue is merely a stat...this art also serves as the only surviving cover art to issue #1! Daredevil is considered the first Silver Age solo hero to debut in his own book with issue #1...further increasing the importance and desirability of this art!


The art itself is very clean for its age with original word balloon stats intact over hand drawn word balloons (apparently for spatial reasons) in the center panel...and whiteout used by the artist on DD's billy club holster.

The art also includes Stan Lee's original notes along the top of the page and left margin that read: "Night, Slum Area-Entrance To Gym- All Quiet (Establish Run-Down Locale)...But Upstairs In The Darkened Gym (Etc., Etc.) Poker Players-Has been Fighters-Henchmen of The Fixer-General Poker Banter)...Panel 2 Margin notes read: "The Fixer" Not Present Yet"

As far as the inker on this piece....rumour has always been it was either Steve Ditko or Sol Brodsky, but Everett was the only one credited for all illustrations on the issue.

About the original collector:

This piece comes from the collection of the world's foremost Daredevil collector who started his DD collection in 1973 and upon putting together a complete run of the comics started collecting Daredevil original art, merchandise, & any and all unique DD pieces. When the famed Tony Christopher collection was broken up, he acquired this piece in 2000 from Rob Hughes of Archangels where it has resided in his collection since! On 8/10/12 he met with Stan Lee who signed the page at the bottom left-of-center.
