    Description

    Bill Everett - Daredevil #1, page 3 Original Art (Marvel, 1964). Daredevil whallops the stuffing out of a gang of murderous riff-raff in this super-charged scene from Daredevil #1. As Ron Goulart noted in The Great Comic Book Artists, Bill Everett had a highly individualistic style, one that blended illustration and cartoon elements. It was a style influenced by artists such as Dean Cornwell, Floyd Davis, and Milton Caniff. Fellow comics great Gil Kane said Bill Everett was, "an artist of great facility, but more than that he was an unparalleled storyteller." Those perceptions are proven to be accurate, in this beautifully choreographed bit of slam-bang action finished with Bill Everett's sinuous inking. The image area of the page is 12" x 18". The word balloons in each panel were re-lettered and pasted onto the page. The paste-ons in panels one, two, four, and five have slipped off the page to reveal the original lettering, which still manages to carry the story forward. There are a few touches of white-out and some very minor glue stains left behind by the slipped-off lettering changes; otherwise the art is in Excellent condition.
