dmstarz's favourite marvel comic cover no182
Time for a golden oldie featuring one of Daredevil's first foes, Stilt-man. Classic artist Wally Wood, I believe produced this image and I love the sense of perspective on the cover. The long metal legs reaching up into the sky with the small body atop and Daredevil falling, falling. Today, Stilt-man seems a bit inane but back then, this cover was obviously so well regarded that Daredevil 48, drawn by DD regular, Gene Colan, basically copied the concept for an equally stunning cover. But Wally got there first and made it work.
I have ranked this cover no 182 as part of a long term project I am producing on my own blog 'marvel-ous' on blogspot.com re: my favourite marvel comic book covers. Please visit http://dmstarz.blogspot.com and check out the other covers that have made my top 250.
