What with all the Daredevil this and Daredevil that, thanks to the movie I still haven't seen, I thought it would be worthwhile to point you all to the website of the man that did more to shape DD in the comics than all the Quesadas and Smiths one can shake a stick at, Gene Colan. Click on the sweet commissioned Daredevil piece above to go there.
He did tons of exciting, adventurous work for Marvel in the 60s and 70s, including wonderful stints on Dr. Strange, the Sub-Mariner, the Avengers, Howard the Duck, and 70 plus amazing issues of the landmark Tomb of Dracula, which gave us the Blade character among other things.
I understand he didn't even get a mention in the movie. If not, what a shame.
