Daredevil #132 features the 2nd appearance of Bullseye!
Overstreet 2022 NM- 9.2 value = $100.
With these statistics in mind, this represents an impressive RARITY FACTOR of ONLY 2.74% of the total population!
After making his murderous introduction in Daredevil #131, Bullseye does not disappoint in his sophomore appearance, as he continues his public assault against The Man Without Fear in an epic showdown in the circus!
Published in April of 1976, exactly twelve years since Daredevil made his iconic debut, artist Rich Buckler rendered an entertaining circus cover, with the caption reading:
DAREDEVIL AND BULLSEYE BATTLE BENEATH THE BIG TOP!
In classic Bullseye fashion, his attack is a dramatic one, in which he blasts himself out of a cannon to accelerate a surprise superman punch—sending Daredevil flying backwards! With multiple witnesses staring up at the unexpected main attraction, Bullseye displays his psychotic disdain for Daredevil, which would evolve to his lust for making Daredevil’s suffering a public spectacle!
To bring this scene to life, the comic dialogue bubbles read:
THIS IS IT HORNHEAD!
ONLY ONE OF US WILL LEAVE THIS CIRCUS ALIVE!
SIDE NOTE: Notice that Hornhead was spelled correctly, whereas it was misspelled on Daredevil #131 as “Hornead!” In addition, there isn’t a UPC barcode printed on the front or the back of the book, which makes Daredevil #132 unique!
Furthermore, high-grade copies are highly elusive, due to the jet-black color along the top portion of the cover, along with parts of the spine exposing the slightest of defects. Therefore, as Bullseye becomes reintroduced in the MCU and gains popularity, Daredevil #132 will soar to new heights in the marketplace!
In my opinion, Bullseye is one of the most psychotic and deranged villains ever created by Marvel! As a result, Bullseye’s early cover appearances are some of the most violent, brutal, and entertaining in comics and are HIGHLY COLLECTIBLE!

On the back cover, located on the upper left-hand section, you can see a really cool arrival date stamp of “JAN. 13 1976.” I am super proud to own this immaculate copy and look forward to watching it appreciate each year!
