Okay, I promised you guys a review, but that will have to wait another few hours. Meanwhile, in this week’s MyCup O’ Joe, Marvel’s editor in chief had this to say in response to a reader question regarding the next Daredevil artist:
I’ve been lovin’ on Daredevil since you and Kevin Smith relaunched him back in the day, and each progressive run has just gotten better and better.
I’m super-excited about Andy Diggle taking over as the new writer, but do we get any news about the art on the book? Is Michael Lark staying, or will it be somebody new?
JQ: Hey Andrew! Glad to hear that you’ve been digging DD! If you thought that Brian Bendis left Ed Brubaker with a helluva cliffhanger, wait until you see what Ed’s got planned for Andy!
No announcements yet about the art team—it’s top secret for now—but how about a nod of the cap to the terrific job Michael Lark has done over the past three years? Michael’s work has been beautiful, and with guest artists such as David Aja, Lee Weeks and Clay Mann, we know DD fans have come to expect amazing artwork from the title, and we don’t expect they’ll be disappointed.
Hang tight, we’ll have an announcement coming up!”
So, no news on the new artist, but this pretty much confirms that Michael Lark will be leaving with Brubaker. It’s a damn shame if you ask me, but I would totally love to see someone like Clay Mann.
