New Daredevil artist and other Daredevil news

I’m writing this from London, back in my hotel room, and with quite a bit of alcohol in my system. However, not even that could keep me from reporting the news we’ve all been waiting for. The new Daredevil artist is… (drumroll, please): Roberto de la Torre!

For those who didn’t know, de la Torre is Diggle’s current collaborator on the Thunderbolts and has also worked on Ms Marvel, and much more. We learn this and many other things in this interview with Tom Brevoort, conducted by IGN. We will be getting an issue of Daredevil this September, though it won’t be one belonging to the main series and the issue in question will be pencilled by Billy Tan. The September issue is a one-shot called Dark Reign: The List, Daredevil #1 and will mean actual event involvement for our favorite guy in red.

Discuss below while I head to bead. Also, I’ve temporarily decided to switch the background to green (even though it makes the site look like shit) to support free speech and fair elections in Iran.

  1. I knew it haha! Great choice IMO. Thanks for the update!

  2. He's no Lark or even Maleev, but he'll do fine. I actually read Thunderbolts #132 with Diggle/La Torre and immediately thought, "Ok, if these guys are the new team on DD, we'll be fine."

    So, if you want a preview of the look/writing of future DD, check out the latest Thunderbolts. You should anyway, since its a pretty fun team book.

  3. I've been a big fan of Brian Reed's Ms. Marvel, and de la Torre was probably my second favorite artist on that book. Still, it represents a radical change in art direction for DD. How long has it been since DD has had a "regular" art style, and not the darker, sketchier style of Lark or Maleev? I think it's a bit of a shame since I enjoy that style so much, but I imagine I'll get used to it immediately.

  4. Hey, someone called this on your earlier post, right? Hmmm. Interesting. This is a case of "wait and see" for me…

    Looking forward to Billy Tan on the book, if only for one issue.

  5. He also did a big run (well, for today's artists) on Iron Man, before it became Invincible Iron Man. I literally picked that book up only for his artwork! Surprisingly, from the previews I've seen, he seems to actually be changing his style to fit it into the current Daredevil look. I could barely tell that was Robert's art! So I think (as long as he can maintain a monthly title) we have ourselves a great new artist! I was worried there for a while.
