 Dark Horse Comics is bringing back a silver age comic, Silver Streak Comics featuring the original Daredevil.Con season will see at least 15 announcements/ media alerts to be made by Dark Horse. In the meantime, June 27th will bring about several diverse comics: Angel & Faith #11, BPRD Hell on Earth: Exorcism, Fatima: The Blood Spinners, Mind MGMT, Resident Alien, Star Wars Boba Fett is Dead and Silver Streak Comics.


Debuting in 1940 in Silver Streak Comics , the original Daredevil was a mute superhero who used boomerangs and his athletic abilities to wipe out American mobsters and international criminals. Capturing readers’ imaginations as he fought his nemesis, the evil Claw, the original Daredevil was a popular recurring character and eventual headliner in his own comic book series. In this volume, the first four expensive and hard-to-find Silver Streak Comics are finally collected in a deluxe hardcover volume! In addition to reprinting the original Daredevil’s debut episodes and early work by Jack Cole (Plastic Man), this essential volume of comic book treasures will present every story, gag strip, and text piece from the original anthologies!
Jack Cole, Jack Binder, Bob Wood, Dick Briefer, Ralph Johns, Kane Miller

I was first introduced to Silver Streak Comics and the original multi-color Daredevil in the pages of Silver Streak Comics, Erik Larsen and company. Larsen revived the title and characters with new creators working on a new silver age book. Larsen kept the multi color Daredevil and a few other silver age cast members in the Savage Dragon cast reworking the odd hero and orphans into series regulars caught out of time.Dynamite entertainment also reworked Daredevil as part of the Alex Ross silver age revival.
The silver age of comics was an odd time. The Next Issue Project isn’t for everyone. It is an acquired taste. This reprint is too an acquired taste that will be beloved by a certain type of collector and sadly overlooked by the masses. Dark Horse has had success with preserving comic history in the past. Since this is a character that has been revived and shown to a new audience recently it should work well.
