Daredevil #131 "Mark Jewelers" Insert CGC 9.8 WP + CVA Exceptional: Origin & 1st appearance of the new Bullseye!

Daredevil #131 features the origin and 1st appearance of the new Bullseye + the 1st appearance of Jacob Conover!

Overstreet 2022 NM- 9.2 value = $600.

 According to the CGC Census Report as of Tuesday, May 30, 2023, out of a total of 3,843 Universal copies graded, only 104 copies were graded in 9.8 with 0 copies graded higher!

With these statistics in mind, this represents an impressive RARITY FACTOR of ONLY 2.71% of the total population!

HOWEVER, this particular copy is the EXTREMELY RARE “Mark Jewelers” Insert, which is the ONLY KNOWN CGC 9.8 “MJI” COPY IN THE WORLD!

Furthermore, this RARE GEM also received the CVA Exceptional sticker, which certifies that it presents much better than your typical CGC 9.8!

Therefore, it’s safe to say that you are viewing a 1 of 1, cream of the crop—ultimate Bullseye GRAIL!


All great superheroes have great arch enemies to challenge and build their character, which evolves with each confrontation to bring out the best version of themselves. For example, these perennial matchups consist of Superman vs. Lex Luthor, Batman vs. the Joker, Spider-Man vs. the Green Goblin and Wolverine vs. Sabretooth to name a few!

With this in mind, it would take 130 issues or 11 years and 11 months after Daredevil made his comic book debut in April of 1964, before he was given an arch enemy of his own! Published in March of 1976, Daredevil #131 is a highly underrated MAJOR KEY within the run, as it ushers in the 1st appearance of the new Bullseye, who would become Daredevil’s psychopathic arch nemesis!

Featured prominently on the Rich Buckler cover amidst a full moon dominating the sunset sky, Bullseye is standing in a commanding pose holding the tip of a dart over his shoulder, with the other hand reaching towards his ultimate target directly in front of him—The Man Without Fear! With a victim already dead on the floor, the comic dialogue bubble reads: YEAH, HORNEAD—I KILLED THAT CREEP, JUST LIKE I’M GONNA KILL YOU! Y’SEE—BULLSEYE NEVER MISSES!

SIDE NOTE: Daredevil #131 was mass produced with a spelling error on the front cover; Hornhead was misspelled as “Hornead!”

In turn, Daredevil is depicted in a vulnerable situation! Although he has fought plenty of villains previously, something was different about this one, as noted in Daredevil’s comic dialogue bubble: HE’S GOT THE DROP ON ME—AND THERE’S NO WAY I CAN SAVE MYSELF!


Moreover, Bullseye has been portrayed on the silver screen by actor Colin Farrell in Marvel’s Daredevil (2003). In more recent times, actor Wilson Bethel played the role of Benjamin “Dex” Poindexter in the 3rd and final season of the critically acclaimed Marvel Daredevil Netflix TV Series (2015-2018)!

Unfortunately, due to the sudden cancelation, we never got a chance to witness Mr. Poindexter fully evolve into the costumed Bullseye in which we are familiar with in the comics! Hopefully, now that it has been confirmed that actor Charlie Cox will reprise his role as Daredevil in the MCU, it is more than likely that we will eventually see his arch nemesis—Bullseye, for some intense -kicking battle scenes!

In closing, I purchased this PERFECTLY WRAPPED & CENTERED & EXTREMELY RARE Mark Jewelers Insert copy from the Shortboxed app in July of 2022! I am super proud to own this immaculate copy and look forward to watching it appreciate each year!

Happy Collecting & Enjoy the Hunt!

ahh yes ! .... the famous " HORNEAD " cover blurb error !!

Yes indeed my friend! 😁

You would think that a major spelling error wouldn’t occur anytime soon, but yet less than 5 years later, on Daredevil #168 published in January of 1981, Elektra’s name was misspelled as “Elecktra” on her debut issue! 🤦🏻‍♂️

I just find that super intriguing, as both Bullseye and Elektra are MAJOR supporting characters in the Daredevil title, where Bullseye famously kills Elektra in Frank Miller’s classic Daredevil #181 issue—yet BOTH of their debut covers were mass produced with spelling errors! Crazy Right?

It's such an honor and privilege to own this pristine copy!

However, it is currently listed FOR SALE in my eBay store and on the @GrailzComix Instagram Consignment Page.

I don't really want to sell it, but for the right price I would seal the deal. (thumbsu
