    Frank Miller and Klaus Janson Daredevil #177 Cover Original Art (Marvel, 1981). In "Where Angels Fear to Tread," the martial arts master known as Stick helps his old pupil, Matt Murdock, face his demons and regain his radar sense. This hauntingly memorable grey tone cover illustration by Frank Miller hails from a peak period in his trendsettting run on the celebrated series that elevated him into Marvel superstardom. At once menacing and dynamically balanced, Miller presents a symbolic image of a hero's struggle to best his own inner demons -- visually depicted with a sophisticated use of atmospheric grey tone patterns juxtaposed against stark black and white shapes. Miller's Daredevil run is universally considered one of the true high points in all of comics history, and covers from the series are always in fever pitch-demand in the marketplace. This one is indisputably one of the top images from the great artist's hallowed period -- simply put, this cover is a DD masterpiece. Drawn on Craftint paper, the art has an image area of 9.75" x 15". The cover type and logos are recent replacements on an acetate overlay; otherwise, the condition of the art is Excellent. Signed by Frank Miller in the UPC box space at the lower left.
