written before about my very complicated relationship with the work of Frank Miller. Regardless of people's thoughts on him or his work within the past decade, almost everyone can agree Miller's stuff in the 1980's and 1990's was often pretty great. He is of course especially known for his time drawing and then also writing the character of Daredevil for his series, "Daredevil." One interesting little footnote in the history of Miller and his work on the character is he actually first illustrated Matthew Murdock's super-heroic identity for a, "Spider-Man," comic. Yes, an interesting bit of trivia for sure.
Peter Parker: The Spectacular Spider-Man," #27 featured the first occurrence of Frank Miller drawing Daredevil (for publication, at least, I don't know how often he may have doodled the character on napkins before that). This specific book isn't especially rare or valuable as Miller's later work on the character would be the sought-after stuff, but it still is kind of cool to see his name there as a, "guest-penciler," which is a fancy-way of saying, "Fill-in artist," for when a book's regular artist gets delayed and it needs art fast.
