When I wrote my overview of the 1983 comic The Daredevils last week I promised I'd be showing you the posters that appeared in the issues. Without further ado, here are all 10 posters that appeared as centre-page pull-outs in every issue (except No.3, which carried an advert). These were brand new pieces of art commissioned by editor Bernie Jaye from some of the UK's finest talents. I don't think most of them have ever been reprinted. Marvel may have even forgotten about them.
Issue No.1, January 1983: Daredevil by Garry Leach.
Issue No.2, February 1983: Spider-Man by Paul Neary.
Issue No.4, April 1983: Black Panther by Mick Austin.
Issue No.5, May 1983: The Special Executive by Alan Davis.
Issue No.6, June 1983: Mephisto by John Higgins.
Issue No.7, July 1983. Art by Alan Davis. A promotional poster that readers were encouraged to ask their newsagents to place in their shop. If the shop agreed, and gave the reader a note confirming it, Marvel would send the reader a replacement poster signed by Alan Moore and Alan Davis. Did any of you out there get involved in this promotion?
Issue No.8, August 1983: Elektra by Dave Weir.
Issue No.9, September 1983: Brotherhood of Evil Mutants by... not sure. Could it be the work of Jerry Paris? Let me know if you can identify the style.
Issue No.10, October 1983: The Fury by Alan Davis.
Issue No.11, November 1983: Merlin and Roma by Alan Davis.
