I decided to take down my upcoming issues page since I was awful at updating it. Besides, ManWithoutFear.com already maintains a way better “coming soon” section than I do, so I’ll just replace that page with something else people might find useful.
Having said that, there are plenty of things coming in June that deserve mention. This week, on June 5, we’ll see the final issue of Daredevil: End of Days hit the stands, along with the very first issue of Daredevil: Dark Nights, the anthology series that starts off with a three-parter written and drawn by Lee Weeks. I haven’t been crazy about End of Days (preview here), but I’ll be sure to do a write-up of some kind once all the pieces are in place.
Daredevil: Dark Nights (though I’ve also seen it misspelled Dark Knights and Darkest Knights, which is weird) will definitely be an intriguing read. I like not really knowing what to expect, and am curious to see the marriage of classic Lee Weeks artwork with his own script, and to see what kind of tone he’ll be going for. The preview for Daredevil: Dark Nights #1 is available here, though I really hope they actually fixed that seriously botched blurb on the intro page before it went to press. It will also be interesting to see who else will contribute to this series once Weeks’ turn at the helm is over. I guess we’re going to have to wait until the September solicitations coming out next week to find out!
As you may or may not have heard, Daredevil #27 has been pushed back a week and is now coming out June 26. While this is a bummer (because, damn, that was some cliffhanger they left us with), there is some consolation to be found in the fact that Daredevil will be guest-starring in the Indestructible Hulk two-parter which kicks off with issue #9, due out June 19. As a nice bonus, it also sports an awesome cover by none other than Paolo Rivera!
Indestructible Hulk #9 promises to reveal “the secret of the friendship between Matt Murdock and Bruce Banner,” which is nice to hear after I just complained that Matt needs more friends. It really wouldn’t surprise me to learn that Banner might be the mystery client from Daredevil #24 who’s been keeping the firm afloat. Then again, we already know I suck at guessing the identities of mystery villains and I don’t expect to do much better with mystery benefactors. 😉
What are you guys most looking forward to in the coming weeks?
