DAREDEVIL #8 (1965): First Appearance of Stilt-Man!

daredevil #8I have a lot to say about this issue, but since it posts maps and diagrams, they have to go first.

Because I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: I love these things.

This issue is the debut of Stilt-Man, and it’s got great art by Wally Wood.

But look at the bottom panel below.  It looks exactly like the Frank Miller cover for Daredevil #186, in which DD firghts Stilt-Man.

I never thought Miller studied other artists, but there are several other panels in #186 that mirror the work Wood did here, way way back in 1965.

I’m sure only the most dedicated nerds and Stilt-Man fans remember that Daredevil beat him in the first issue by shrinking him out of existence.  Kind of a brilliant twist for a character who could make himself small.
