The Steranko Influence: Barry Smith


In early 1969, a young and still developing Barry Smith did three enthusiastically Steranko-influenced (with more than a dash of Kirby) issues of DAREDEVIL. As if to sign off on that influence, the young Englishman even had Matt Murdock wander into the same alley where Steve Rogers was sneaking a cigarette (!!??) in Jim's first CAPTAIN AMERICA story of just a few months earlier.

Steve Rogers probably picked that habit up in Normandy like Upham in Saving Pvt. Ryan. In the 70s, I heard he used to get really high with Hank McCoy, listening to Stevie Wonder's Secret Life of Plants in quadrophonic sound.
