Top Ten Daredevil Covers: Vol. 1 (1964-1998)

Ah, comic book cover art. I’m a sucker for it. Countless times both good and bad I’ve been persuaded to pick up a book based solely on its front cover. Being a big Daredevil fan and to celebrate the news that Marvel has reacquired the film rights to the character I figured I’d single out the man without fear and pick my ten favorite covers from the series first volume (spanning 1964-1998). Due to his big role in Daredevil’s history, I don’t think anyone will be surprised by the healthy amount of Frank Miller included in this countdown.

There you have it! Agree? Disagree? Did I leave out your favorite cover from this era? Drop me a line in the comments section and let me know. Here’s hoping Marvel makes the movie that this character deserves.
