Actor Charlie Cox Signs Fan’s Vintage Daredevil #1 Comic

A young lady on the social media platform formerly know as Twitter, has cause a bit of a ruckus this weekend. Her account name is Mal and she describes herself as a 20-year-old Matt Murdock enthusiast as well as a fan of Marvel, Star Wars, Adam Driver, Charlies Cox and more.

 

 

Mal went to what appears to be Fan Expo Boston this weekend and stood inline for an autograph and for a photo with Charlie Cox. On her twitter pages she posted a video and photo as she asked Charlie to sign her copy of Daredevil #1 from 1964 by Stan Lee and Bill Everett. The actor did as he was requested and posed with Mal and her comic, a photo separate from the photo session she was set up for later that day. However, after posting all of this on social media, people started calling her out for “defacing comic history.”

 

 

Daredevil #1 is valued anywhere between $1,700 to $21,000 depending on the condition and these posters felt Charlie’s signature would bring the value of the comic down. But there are two values to a comic, the resale value which only matters if you’re trying to sell it, and the enjoyment value you get from owning the comic. And having one of her favorite actors who brings the character to life for Marvel Studios adds to the enjoyment value for Ma.

 

Art is to be enjoyed, not commercialized. Good for her.
