Daredevil and Kingpinís relationship goes back to the era of Frank Miller and Klaus Jansonís dark noir storytelling. By adding Wilson Fisk, the imposing and intellectual villain, Frank further pushed and tested Daredevilís morals and beliefs into the depths of Hellís Kitchen. Readers were fascinated with this dark story.

This is the final and finished painting for Marvelís Variant Cover of Issue #595, released in November 2017. It is set in an alleyway of the infamous Hellís Kitchen. In the painting, Kingpin strikes the masked hero down into the ground. This leaves viewers at the edge of their seats!

Everyone knows Daredevil can take a punchÖbutÖhow many? For how long? Was this the beginning or the end of the fight? Greg captures an instant. A moment in time. Will our hero rise? Or Kingpin be the new Devil of Hellís Kitchen?
