I really hope this doesn’t become habit at Marvel. The publisher recently announced that the award-winning duo of Mark Waid and Chris Samnee were off the current “Daredevil” book only to re-announce this morning that the team will continue to work with The Man Without Fear in an All New Marvel Now! book “Daredevil”.
I like the idea of them starting a new arc with the hero, and thus kicking things off at issue #1 again to entice new readers, but did they really have to attempt duping us? Either way, look for “Daredevil” #1 in March.
Official Press Release:
New York, NY – November 26th, 2013 – You just can’t keep the Man Without Fear down! Matt Murdock makes his All-New Marvel NOW! debut with an exciting new monthly series starting with Daredevil #1 this March!
Beloved by critics and fans alike, Eisner-Award winning storytellers Mark Waid (Captain America, The Amazing Spider-Man) and Chris Samnee (Thor: The Mighty Avenger) re-team to take Marvel’s fearless hero in a bold new direction – starting with a move to The City by the Bay!
Spinning out of the groundbreaking new Infinite Comic series Daredevil: Road Warrior, Daredevil #1 marks a new start for Matt Murdock. Armed with an imperceptible radar sense and a passion for justice – the blind lawyer from Hell’s Kitchen is ready to make his mark on the Golden City’s streets. But, San Francisco local vigilante, The Shroud is already keeping the street safe – and he’s not ready to share the spotlight!
Big changes are in store for the Man Without Fear – as old haunts and familiar faces emerge ready to give the devil his due!
“Mark and Chris (along with Javier Rodriguez and Joe Caramagna) have made history on Daredevil over the past couple years,” said Senior Editor Stephen Wacker. “But their new plans for the Man Without Fear are their most exciting yet. This is a perfect place to jump on see what everyone is talking about.”
Every FIRST ISSUE bearing the All New Marvel NOW! branding includes a code for a free digital copy of that same comic on the Marvel Comics app for iOS and Android devices.
Once again, the biggest creators bring you the biggest characters in the biggest stories…and it’s happening NOW!
