Frank Miller Daredevil cover for Amazing Heroes #4

Here's a cover scan that I've searched for years and finally found it!  Frank Miller's 1981 cover to Amazing Heroes #4, featuring Daredevil.

Amazing Heroes 4 Daredevil cover by Frank Miller 1981

I always admired this one for the composition.  There's something about DD rotating on that clothesline, suspended in mid-air between two buildings in the city that seemed thrilling.  The composition is simple but seems to capture the character perfectly.

You know how some songs get stuck in your head because you heard that when you read a comic.  The one I associate with this cover is Under Pressure by David Bowie and Queen.  Nuff Said!
