Daredevil #70-71 (1970)

Daredevil closes out a year with a new villain: Tribute.  Seriously.

Gary Friedrich takes the writing reins from Roy Thomas for the first half, and then Thomas returns for #71-so this is probably a Roy Thomas joint, with Friedrich punching it up to meet a deadline.  After all, Thomas was writing more than half the books on the stands every month.

It reads like a Thomas story, too: Heavily moralistic and presenting a simplified view of the world.  Tribune is basically Fox News the Supervillain, killing hippie protesters.

Newsman Walter Cronkite appears.

Creators:  Gary Friedrich (#70), Roy Thomas (#71), and Gene Colan.
Grade: F
