Top Five Most Iconic Daredevil Covers

Here are my picks for the top five most iconic covers featuring Daredevil (with iconic being determined by what covers are most established and most recognized when it comes to Daredevil, with a preference towards covers that are homaged a lot). This is not a BEST cover list and due to the very nature of icons, very few (if any) recent covers will be on the list. A notable exception to the rules is that I don’t count covers from a character’s first appearance (which isn’t applicable to all characters, of course, just those who appeared on the cover of the comic they debuted in), as those tend to be automatically iconic so they’re boring. Here‘s a list of all characters featured so far.

We’ll finish off the DC Comics side of the equation with a big name, Barry Allen, the Flash! Unlike Hal Jordan, I didn’t need to enlist the help of star writer Geoff Johns (who has a neat website you can visit here), although I did ask him if he agreed that my #3 cover choice worked – he did, so the list was pretty obvious from that point on!
