As Marvel celebrates their 75th Anniversary, artists from around the globe are paying homage to their favorite heroes from Marvel’s long list of greatness. Poster Posse members Doaly, (Or is it ‘King Doaly’?) and Florey (Or is it Mr. Florey?) have turned in two creative looks at Matt Murdock and both are quite exceptional. Matt Murdock is blinded by a radioactive substance that falls from an oncoming vehicle. While he no longer can see, the radioactive exposure heightens his remaining senses beyond normal human ability. His father, a boxer named Jack Murdock, supports him as he grows up, though Jack is later killed by gangsters after refusing to throw a fight. After donning a yellow and dark red, and later an all dark red costume, Matt seeks out revenge against his father’s killers as the superhero Daredevil. – Wiki
Here is what Doaly had to say about this beauty: “The basic concept was to play with traditional eye tests as part of the marketing for the new Netflix Daredevil series that is currently in the works as Daredevil/Matt Murdock is blind himself.”
Florey recently had this amazing print in a show at Hero Complex Gallery called: “I am the law/ A life of crime.” Florey has taken more of an action shot of Daredevil over a rain soaked Hells Kitchen with his print. One thing that really “stands out” about this one is that the title is embossed in braille! Quite clever and I can’t WAIT to get mine framed!
You can actually purchase Florey’s print either through Hero Complex Gallery at THIS LINK or you can bid on #1 of this print on ebay at THIS LINK with all the proceeds going directly to charity for the blind.
Did you know?
- Daredevil’s sense of touch is sensitive enough to detect the faint impressions of ink on paper, allowing him to read by touch.
- Daredevil’s sense of taste is sharp enough to enable him to detect the number of grains of salt on a pretzel.
- Daredevil is able to hear a heartbeat from 20 feet away, as well as identify people by their individual beat rhythm, or detect whether they are lying or not by the changes in their heartbeat.
Let’s face it, he’s pretty damn cool and these prints do an excellent job paying tribute to the protector of Hell’s Kitchen.
