Daredevil #181 by Frank Miller & Klaus Janson
Welcome to the Classic Comic Book Page! We scour our memories and hundreds of comic book issues to bring you pages that we think are classics.
This presentation comes from the double-sized Daredevil #181 “Last Hand” (Apr 1982), written and penciled by Frank Miller & inked and colored by Klaus Janson, from Marvel Comics.
In 1979, Frank Miller began drawing Daredevil. He co-plotted stories with Roger McKenzie until he eventually took over both writing and art duties in 1981. During that time, he turned Daredevil into a darker-themed and noir-inspired title. Miller took Daredevil and made it his own, and in doing so, greatly popularized the character – taking it from a bi-monthly to a monthly book.
Frank Miller’s run on Daredevil #168-191 really kicked off his career in comics and remains one of the classic runs on a title of all-time.
Since Daredevil #181 is double-sized, you’ll get to see TWO pages instead of just one. Here is the iconic sequence in which Bullseye kills Elektra.
