DAREDEVIL’s First Meeting With THE PUNISHER to Get Facsimile Edition Release

EXCLUSIVE: McKenzie and Miller’s Daredevil #183 began a lengthy conflict…

Marvel’s got two Facsimile Editions coming this October. One of them — 1979’s X-Men #129, with the first appearances of Emma Frost and Kitty Pryde — we showed you Monday. Now, here’s the other one — 1982’s Daredevil #183, featuring the first showdown between Matt Murdock and Frank Castle.

Dig the official solicitation, which will be released by Marvel later this week:


Penciled by FRANK MILLER

A rivalry for the ages is born as the Man Without Fear meets the vigilante without remorse! Daredevil and the Punisher each have their own views on justice, and their clash of ideologies has seen them lock horns many times over the years — but it all began here! When a young girl dies, Daredevil and the Punisher both hunt down the drug dealer responsible for her death. Matt Murdock is determined to make the perpetrator pay for his crimes in accordance with the law, but Frank Castle has other ideas. Can the Punisher persuade Daredevil to join him in his endless war — or will they come to blows? With the legendary Frank Miller illustrating, you’d better hope it’s the latter! It’s one of the all-time great Marvel comic books, boldly re-presented in its original form, ads and all! Reprinting DAREDEVIL (1964) #183.

— A few thoughts:

— The issue is due to go on sale Oct. 11, 2023. A price hasn’t been announced but Facsimile Editions are generally around $3.99

— With Hollywood strike-struck, I have no idea when Disney+’s MCU Daredevil: Born Again — with both Charlie Cox’s Daredevil and Jon Bernthal’s Punisher — will debut. But I’m looking forward to it, whenever it arrives. It’s slated for early 2024, but I gotta figure that’ll change.

Obligatory Price Comparison: An unslabbed, NM+ original recently sold on eBay for $96. The FE will be about four smackers.
