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.
