Here's the 18th card of 25 cards that I illustrated for Upper Decks 2018 Marvel Premier set. Daredevil aka Matthew Michael Murdoch is the crime fighting, vigilante badass of Hell's Kitchen. Abandoned by his mother, Matt Murdock was raised by his father, boxer "Battling Jack" Murdock, in Hell's Kitchen. Realizing that rules were needed to prevent people from behaving badly, young Matt decided to study law; however, when he saved a man from an oncoming truck, it spilled a radioactive cargo that rendered Matt blind while enhancing his remaining senses.
Under the harsh tutelage of blind martial arts master Stick, Matt mastered his heightened senses and became a formidable fighter. Daredevil patrols the streets of Hell's Kitchen by jumping from rooftop to rooftop using cables on his batons and doing gymnast type flips. He fights with the precision of a martial arts boxer and uses his batons in brutal hand to hand combat and by throwing the batons as they bounce from one corner to another until they reach their intended target.
Drawing this card and knowing it would be seen by Marvel was a huge honor since Daredevil is THE comic my older brother brought me from 7-Eleven 24 years ago which made me realize I wanted to become an artist. If you want to know the exact Daredevil storyline, look it up in print as a graphic novel called Daredevil : Born Again at your local comic shop. It's one of the best illustrated and written stories in comics and its still in print!
