etragedy's Daredevil #8 - The Stiltman Cometh! review

Fun But Not Essential

In this issue Daredevil faces one of his many underwhelming foes, Stilt-Man. Stilt man is kind of like Doc Ock, except instead of four flexible additional appendages, he only has two that take the place of his legs, and they're not even flexible, so how he manages to walk is a bit of a mystery.

That's not the only mystery here - the identity of the Stilt-Man is supposed to be the real mystery here, though it's pretty obvious to all but the least astute readers. A bigger question is why he bothers to tip his hand to Matt Murdock (even if he's unaware that Murdock is Daredevil)?

The story contains the usual extraordinary coincidences that besmirch a lot of Silver Age comics, but overall the flow of the story, and the artwork by Wally Wood who was probably Marvel's best artist at the time, make it a fast-paced, enjoyable read.

As an added bonus, there's a cross-sectional diagram of both Daredevil's Billy Club, and Matt Murdock's apartment!
