Daredevil #56 (Marvel/1969)

Daredevil #56 (Marvel Comics)

Roy Thomas (w) Gene Colan (a)

Swinging through New York is our scarlet clad hero Daredevil.

And he's singing much to the bemusement of the public who hear and witness and hear this rare, probably one off event.

In a few moments old horn-head will be seeing the love of his life again and will reveal that the man she loves, Matt Murdoch is not dead and he'll crate a new alter-ego and head for the alter.

Except this being an angst ridden adventure comic, the reader is not surprised to learn that this just doesn't happen. At least not in this issue.

Karen Page has buggered off to Fagan Corner from whence she came and all is not well.

There's a villain in town and he's not happy with the Pages.

The Death's Head he calls himself.

But Daredevil is on his way avoiding autograph hunters by sitting atop the express train and jumping off at the station and arriving in the nick of time...

Of course the story doesn't end in this issue so having purchased this I now have to see if I can find a reasonably priced copy of Daredevil #57 with it's shocking revelation....
