This was just what I meant when I said I’d be willing to take a break from my ongoing hiatus in case anything major happened. A full-color and lettered preview of Daredevil #1 is just that kind of major news that cannot go uncommented. Ordinarily, a preview isn’t that big of a deal, but this is really our first taste of not only what a Waid/Rivera/Martín Daredevil comic looks like in full color – courtesy of Javier Rodríguez – but what it sounds like. With the generous use of caption boxes to narrate Matt’s inner thoughts, we get a feel for Waid’s Daredevil voice. So far, I like it.
Meanwhile, I’m happy to report that my hiatus has been wonderful so far and that I’m brimming with ideas for what to cover in June when I return to regular posting. As far as this preview goes, have your say in the comment section!
NOTE: The date of publication for the first issue is still July 20, and not July 7 as is indicated by the preview information. ManWithoutFear.com’s Kuljit Mithra had this verified as soon as the new date started circulating. Sadly, the earlier date is an error.
