Covered 365: Day 220

Daredevil #220, Marvel Comics, July 1985. Artist: David Mazzucchelli. I really like David Mazzucchelli’s cover to Daredevil #220. There are two effects he’s going for here with the haziness of the light in the fog and then the fog itself.…

Covered 365: Day 217

House of Mystery #217, DC Comics, September 1973. Artist: Bernie Wrightson. Man the cover to House of Mystery #217 is so Wrightson and for me, that’s a good thing. What strikes me about Barry Windsor Smith’s Daredevil #217 cover is…

Overvalued Overstreet | Daredevil 7

Daredevil #7, Marvel Comics, April 1965. I can’t tell you how many times lower to mid grade copies of this book has queued up in my back issue bins over the years.
