When it rains, it pours. That’s how the saying goes and it certainly seems to be true of all the Daredevil-related news to come out of the last few days. In fact, just after I’d posted my last post detailing some recent news (though I forgot to mention the preview art from New Avengers #16, more on that below), a whole pile of additional news, interviews and previews was upon us. We’ll start in reverse chronological order!
Sneak preview of Daredevil #4
What’s that you say? Daredevil #3 isn’t even out yet? Why you’d be right of course! However, we’re switching art teams with Daredevil #4 and Marcos Martín must have finished his homework early. It’s unlettered – as it should be – but go to either CBR or Marvel.com if you want to see some glorious Daredevil art. Go ahead. You know you want to. 😉
Daredevil: Season One preview art and interview
More news on next year’s original graphic novel Daredevil: Season One has surfaced and you can read all about it – and see more preview art – in this MTV Geek! interview with Johnston and artist Wellington Alves.
One thing that concerns me a little is that they seem to be sticking pretty closely to the original first few issues. I’m sure this will be a great read no matter what, but I was hoping for more of a re-imagination of the early days. However, there seems to be be plenty of new material as well. According to Johnston:
“We’re also adding our own story that spans the arc of the book, in-between the gaps as it were. And that story deals with Matt’s emotional development.”
Interviews with Mark Waid
Earlier in the week, Marvel.com posted a Tuesday Q&A interview with Daredevil writer Mark Waid in which they discuss recent and coming events. Waid reveals some information about what Klaw is up to so if you try to stay away from even mild spoilers, you may want to stay away.
MTV Geek! also posted a short video interview with Waid from Baltimore Comic Con.
Bendis talks about Daredevil in New Avengers
Other news this week concerned some forthcoming details from September’s Daredevil #16 in which Daredevil joins the Avengers. Some preview art (see above or go to CBR to see more) has been released as well as interview in which New Avengers writer Brian Michael Bendis talks quite a bit about what this development will mean for Daredevil.
Okay, I think we’re all caught up now. Phew! Feel free to post opinions and reactions below in the comments section.
