I 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. So, above is Matt Murdock’s house. He’s got secret stairs behind a bookcase to his gym, lab, and electronic workshop.
Old Daredevil issues are often compared to Batman.
Frankly, I don’t see it.
Also: His billy club:
Look at the bottom panel–it looks exactly like the Frank Miller cover for Daredevil #186, in which DD firghts Stilt-Man.
Clearly an homage. And there are several other panels in #186 that mirror the work Wood did here, way way back in 1965.
I love Wally Wood–but Stilt-Man’s legs get a little thick in some sequences.
As for the story: 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.
And finally, this is what happens when a blind man drives…
