I’ve looked for an official announcement on this piece of news, but haven’t found one. The information just seems to be floating around out there and came up in an interview that Tucker Stone did with Mark Waid for Comixology, published earlier today. I’ve seen vague hints about this in other places too, but didn’t quite know what to make of them. The quote below confirms the sad news:
Did you know going in that [Marcos Martín] was only going to be in for those three issues, or was that something that came up while you were working?
Unfortunately, it was something that came up while we were working. He’s doing 4, 5 and 6. When he came on, I don’t think things were firmed up with his next project and now they have. I salute him, and I think it’s going to be great and I want to see him go off and do creator owned stuff. But my heart breaks.
It seems that this month’s issue of Daredevil will be the last we see from Martín and I’m really sorry to see him go. What do you guys think about this?
Note: In other news, here’s a link to another video interview with Mark Waid dated November 2 that I only stumbled across just now. It’s by Comic Impact and was taped at the Long Beach Comic Con
