Unique sideways and red-toned format!! When Dr. Jonathan Weir revived dozens of actual Golden Age heroes from his Vault to battle The Black Shroud, (In the pages of AC’s Femforce monthly.) Lev Gleason’s original Daredevil was among them. Renamed Reddevil, (for obvious coryright reasons ) he resumed his crimefighting career in the AC universe of today, and became a popular supporting character in Femforce. When the whole revived gang is sitting around HQ and telling stories about great battles of the past, Reddevil cannot help reliving his epic battles with the gigantic alien monster known as The Claw, back in the early 1940’s. Odd thing about it is, though the listeners he’s entertaining with this tale are all from his era, NO ONE ELSE seems to remember any of this!! They ALL begin to worry for Reddevil’s mental health, until The Claw suddenly appears in Central Florida!! A very inventive NEW story that incorporates a reprint of Jack Cole’s “Daredevil Kills The Claw” story, from Silver Streak #10, 1941, in it’s flashback. “Reddevil In The Clutches Of The Claw”, part one is written by Bill Black, drawn by Dick Ayers and inked by Mark Heike.
