Years later, after his original years with Marvel Comics, Steve Ditko came to draw Daredevil a few times in Daredevil #162, #235 & #264. Well, I dropped the ball on this one, he also drew Daredevil in issue #234! And what a fine issue that was.
|Not often you get to check out Ditko's pencils.|
Some good, some not so good, but always worth it to see Steve Ditko artwork. Especially when it's not a character you're used to seeing him illustrate.
Daredevil #162 Requiem!
"Requiem for a Pug"
Daredevil deactivates a runaway Meson-projector reactor, but loses his memory afterwards. He ends up re-living his father's career as a boxer, under the control of a gambler called Mr. Hyle.
Michael Fleisher wrote the story with cover, pencils & inks by Steve Ditko.
A Frank Miller/Klaus Janson alternate cover to this issue is printed in place of the letters page in Daredevil #164.
Daredevil #234 Madcap's on the Loose!

Too bad, only one of these stories has been reprinted. Daredevil #162 was reprinted in Marvel Visionaries: Steve Ditko. You don't want to miss out on this book with all the extra goodies included.
