Retroactive Special Edition: Daredevil Through The Decades

marvel retro

Welcome one and all to a very special edition of Retroactive. Over the course of countless editions, I had previously highlighted and chosen my favourite Daredevil covers from each year of the title’s existence. With this special edition I plan on taking those winners and determining the very best of each decade. Below you’ll find the various links to each decade. Click on that specific logo to be instantly taken to my number one choice complete with my original synopsis along with links to all the Retroactive features of that specific decade so you yourself can chime in with your selections.

  1. 60s: Daredevil # 51 (April 1969)
    70s: tie between Daredevil # 99 (May 1973) and Daredevil # 124 (August 1975)
    80s: Daredevil # 227 (February 1986)
    90s: Daredevil Vol. 2 # 9 (December 1999)
    00s: Daredevil Vol. 2 # 52 (November 2003)
    10s: tie between Daredevil Vol. 3 # 26 (July 2013) and Daredevil Vol. 4 # 3 (July 2014)

    The 90s were the decade that made my choice most difficult, because there were three other covers that could have won the overall gold medal:

    – the cover you chose;
    – Daredevil # 335 (December 1994);
    – Daredevil # 351 (April 1996).

    At the end I decided to pick Daredevil Vol. 2 # 9, because it’s the first Daredevil issue I’ve ever read. Sentimentality wins out! 🙂

    • I know how difficult that must have been for you to narrow down all these fantastic covers to just eight and I thank you for that.

      Just for fun, taking your Top 8 picks, here would be my Rankings:

      1. Daredevil Vol. 3 # 26
      2. Daredevil Vol. 2 # 9
      3. Daredevil Vol. 4 # 3
      4. Daredevil # 227
      5. Daredevil Vol. 2 # 52
      6. Daredevil # 51
      7. Daredevil # 124
      8. Daredevil # 99
