More unearthed gems from mighty Marvel's mirth-fueled past! Here we see two daring DAREDEVIL covers, both from the late 60s, and their unused and little-seen original cover designs! Click each below to enlarge!
Below: Here is the original cover pencil art for DAREDEVIL #43, an incredible 1968 issue involving DD and ol' Captain America embroiled in a very public slugfest! Sure, Gene Colan's pencil art (left) is fine and dandy, but who could ever beat the sheer power and raw energy seen on Jack Kirby's final published version (right)?
|Regarding the unused art, it was assumed that the figure of the guest-starring Cap was too |
obscured by DD's body, hence the new illo that featured the star-spangled Avenger front and center!
Below: The unused captivating cover sketch to 1969's DAREDEVIL #54 (left), and its final, published version (right), as delineated by Gene Colan!
|I have no idea who the artist is on that original cover sketch! Marie Severin? Alan Weiss? Any ideas?|
