englentine's Daredevil #12 - Sightless, In a Savage Land! review

Ka-Zar not Tarzan

After a decent tale in the last two issues, we return to a childish one where all the characters are their own best P.R. agents. Tons of silver age silliness, including the old chest nut that has 2 heroes fighting each other before they decide to talk with each other.  In this case Ka-Zar and Daredevils first meeting is a panel showing DD hitting Ka-Zar at the same time he is telling him he does not want to hurt him. 
  It isn't all bad, we get some Jack Kirby layouts, i always have said that was Kirbys strong point. We also get the first John Romita art. It does serve Daredevil well. You can see why he became a legend in our little hobby.  I can't recommend this book like I did the last 2, it just fell too far back into what was bad in the first issues.  I can't completely fail it either.
