  1. Great episode! Always a fan of Spider-Man and Daredevil team-ups, they’re such a natural pairing. In hindsight it’s funny how little of the black costume’s story was thought-out yet, I feel like Daredevil would’ve been able to sense the suit being alive.

    Shag was half-right in remembering Scott McDaniel drawing a Daredevil DC team-up, but it was with Bruce Wayne. A new one with Daredevil and Nightwing would be really cool.

  2. I missed this issue (after reading part 1), but I had read an earlier Spidey/DD team-up from MTU #123. A year later, I got to read their first ecounter when Marvel Tales reprinted ASM #16. DD was still in his yellow costume, which was the first time I ever laid eyes on that!

    Thanks for the DD history lesson. I haven’t bought a lot of DD comics myself over the years, having had a friend who bought the book for a long time. I just read his!

  3. A great episode. Can’t wait till you get to spider-man’s team up with moon knight . Also in your opinion if marvel did a cartoon version of this in style of the Batman Brave and bold cartoon . Who would you choose as spider-man’s first team up and who would they fight ? Also would limit it to just Peter Parker or you ad in the members of the spider -man family like silk or spider ham getting there own team up episodes as well ??

  4. Another great episode, guys! This was a fun issue, and on my reread now I appreciate the smaller things even more: Kingpin’s workout and concern for an employee. Natasha stretching while comparing notes with Matt. Pete’s silly songs. Those things didn’t have to be in the issue, they don’t support the plot. But they give extra life to the characters. So great.

    Oh, am I the reason this show is back and covering MTU? Well, thank you very much! 😀

    1. I mean to mention I had the same reaction to seeing the cover credits were Adams and Mignola! That’s insane, before either was making a name for himself, and never thought they’d be paired together, knowing what their styles become. Just amazing to see.

  5. Great episode! I’d forgotten all about this story; I went back and reread it. I always enjoy a Spidey/Daredevil team up. They do lock horns sometimes (my favorite team up between them—in the Death of Jean DeWolff story—has them coming to blows, but it’s also where Matt and Peter discover each other’s secret identity). I love their mutual respect despite their sometimes-differing ideologies.

  6. By the way, I had no idea Karl Kesel did a Daredevil run! Reading it might now and really enjoying it! Thanks for the recommendation!
