    "I once did a cover of a Marvel comic, Daredevil, where I just drew a cliched fat southern cop staring at the camera, saying, ‘We’ve got a nasty, rotten little town here, Mister, and we intend to keep it that way.’ And to me, that was the comic book industry at the time.”—Frank Miller, 2002 (Eisner/Miller, p.196)

    Rosario Dawson will play a dedicated young woman whose quest to heal the wounds of Hell’s Kitchen brings Matt Murdock unexpectedly crashing into her life, while her own journey forever alters the course of his battle against the injustices of this broken city.”

John Romita, Jr was already a professional at the time, but I have a feeling the compositions on this page had an impact on him.

    The Amazing Spider-Man #284, January 1987. Cover by Ron Frenz. Tom DeFalco, plot; Ron Frenz, storytelling; “ably assisted” by Jim Owsley, script; and Brett Breeding, pencils. Josef Rubinstein, inks; Rick Parker, lettering, Bob Sharen, colorist; Jim Salicrup, editor; Jim Shooter, editor-in-chief.
    The Amazing Spider-Man #284, April 1987. Cover by David Mazzuchelli. Jim Owsley, script; Erik Larsen, pencils; Art Nichols, inks; Rick Parker; letters; Julianna Ferriter, colors; Jim Salicrup, editor; Jim Shooter, editor-in-chief.

    As you can see from the credits, things were a little tumultuous at the time. Jim Owsley talks about it here; and Tom DeFalco and Ron Frenz, who remember things differently, talk about it here.

    There are some fascinating anecdotes in these accounts, and the whole story is one the many detours I could have taken in Marvel Comics: The Untold Story had I had more time and space.

    Daredevil #223 cover by John Byrne.

    Seen here are the original cover, the published cover and what the cover would have looked like if colored as John intended.

    John shared this story on his website:

    That 223 cover was one of the seriously annoying moments that come along from time to time. When I was asked to do it, the image you see popped immediately into my head, with the colors as in Nathan’s second post. I described it to the editor. I described it to Shooter. Everybody agreed. I drew the cover…

    And then the color version in Nathan’s first post came out. Had they forgotten to tell the colorist what I wanted? Had I simply been mollycoddled? LIED to? Given the temper of the times, the latter is, sadly, not at all unlikely.

    John Byrne’s not even on Twitter and he has mastered the art of subtweeting.

    Variety ad, 1979: “Daredevil is but one of over 100 exciting characters ready right now to star in your next motion picture or television production. All Marvel Characters have their own identity—their own personal story—and the potential for outrageous stardom—just like Spider-Man, The Incredible Hulk and Captain America.”
