Ryan Dunlavey's Golden Age Daredevil

Among the many cameos in this week's Comic Book Comics #4 is our old friend the Golden Age Daredevil.

The above panel is how writer Fred Van Lente and artist Ryan Dunlavey introduce and depict him (He appears in only one other panel, standing shoulder to shoulder with, I believe, Lenin and Stalin. God, I love this book).

What did the aborigines who raised him get him for his birthday? I'm betting it's a boomerang.

You know that Erik Larsen has been using GA Daredevil in his Savage Dragon book?

Actually, the Aborigines gave him a package of shelf brackets.

Daredevil is mute? But in that Supermen book he did a bunch of talking! I'm confused; I can't believe Golden Age creators couldn't keep their continuity straight! Nostalgia: ruined!
