The Marvel Age of Comics
Here’s a page from DAREDEVIL #1 by Bill Everett with some uncredited help from Steve Ditko and Sol Brodsky.
As this page clearly shows, at least on the early portion of this job, Everett lettered the story himself, and then for some reason Stan had the job relettered—presumably because he felt that Everett’s lettering style was too far afield from the look of the rest of the line. In the first caption and the thought balloon in the third panel, teh replacement lettering patches have been lost over the years, revealing Everett’s lettering underneath. Same copy, just different lettering.
A few border notes from Everett remain at the top of the page:
ENVIOUSLY WATCHES SCHOOL TEAM PRACTICE
UNCONSCIOUSLY BEGINS TO RESENT PROMISE TO DAD

    I never realized that the perfect actor for Daredevil would have been 1992’s Luke Perry.
