Daredevil #219 (1985): Frank Miller returns

daredevil badlands

The first return of Frank Miller.  The script puts Murdock in the “Man With No Name” role, a silent warrior come to rid a town of some bad men. 

The short version is, it’s a Western.  But it takes place in the modern era.  A very different, very special issue.

In the letter column, editor Ralph Macchio tells us that Denny O’Neil will return next issue, but I can’t help wonder how this really came about.  And why it wasn’t a much bigger seller.  As I remember, it hit the stands without much fanfare, and the cover doesn’t even promote that Miller is involved.

Any of my readers know if there’s a back story?

One of the best Daredevil stories of all time.
