Issue 9 “That He May See” (August, 1965) Released: June 1, 1965 Written by Stan Lee Drawn by Bob Powell and Wally Wood Inked by Bob Powell Lettered by Sam Rosen Cover drawn by Wally Wood
Karen Page won’t shut her yap about Matt Murdock getting eye surgery, so our hero heads off to Lichtenbad to meet with Dr. Van Eyck. In other sections of the comic book, peasants tremble, robots swing maces, and Foggy Nelson reveals himself to be a douchebag of the highest order. In real life, Kyle surprises both Aaron and Rodney by loving every panel of this issue, an achievement that is overshadowed by Kyle not having the most basic knowledge of the greatest villain in Marvel Comics history. This episode is not to be missed!
Also in this episode, Aaron addresses a comment from a listener!
Finally, check behind the cut for our individual grades for this issue and take some time to view the artwork and images that we discuss in the episode!
Rodney and Aaron are impressed with the story and art in this issue, but less than impressed with Stan Lee plagiarizing his own work over at Fantastic Four. They give this issue a B+ and a B, respectively. Kyle, on the other hand, is absolutely giddy over this installment of Daredevil‘s original run and hands out the first A+ that any of us have ever given an issue. Our overall average: A-.
