Issue Notes

This issue has variants.

Daredevil becomes a monthly book with this issue.

The copyright registration reports that the publication date for the issue was February 3, 1981. However, this is most likely the date the direct-sale variant first went on sale. The newsstand edition generally went on sale two to four weeks after the direct-sale variant, which was the edition that was sold through most comics stores.
