Description

    Gene Colan and Jim Steranko - Daredevil #44 Cover Original Art (Marvel, 1968). Beneath Daredevil #44's powerfully symbolic cover lies a story as radically written as it was laid out. The Jester plays a joke on himself and Daredevil, too, when he makes it appear as if DD killed Jonathan Powers, in the thriller "I, Murderer!" written by Stan Lee. Gene Colan demonstrates that he was as far out on the artistic edge as any of the younger innovators that would enter the industry in the years following 1968. Exploiting the dramatic contrast of light and dark, the action between Daredevil and the Jester is played out against a sky filled with a strikingly authentic depiction of the New York skyline. Colan creates a real sense of mass and weight, which he fleshes out with structural depth. Jim Steranko's superb inks made this Silver Ager smoke! The art has an image area of 10" x 15". There is some nominal white-out usage and slight staining outside of the image area, otherwise this first-class piece is in Excellent condition. Includes the original title logo and other type paste-ups.
