Those Daredevil fans who are also familiar with the early issues, will know that there was a time when Daredevil’s billy club wasn’t just a cane turned bludgeoning tool. Alongside whatever you need to shove in there to get it to fire a wire attached to a grappling hook, it would feature smoke screen pellets, a plastic sheet, and a snoopscope. And that doesn’t even begin to cover it. Daredevil reminisces about the old days in this very funny page from Daredevil #119, by Tony Isabella and Bob Brown, where we learn that he hasn’t completely given up on finding new purposes for it. Here, it’s used to hold subway tokens!
This page is actually funny for more than one reason. For starters, that top right corner could have easily qualified it for the “Seeing things” series, in my opinion. It would (probably) count as an artist’s goof rather than a logical error in the writing, but am I alone in noticing that Daredevil definitely seems to be looking at that subway sign? Didn’t think so. 😉
