Doesn’t it feel like forever having to wait for that April 14 issue of Daredevil? Well, I’m happy to tell you that there’s some awesome preview art out, along with a great and very enlightening interview with Daredevil co-writer Antony Johnston, courtesy of CBR. Johnston talks about what it’s like working with Diggle, how their collaboration came about and what’s on the horizon for Matt Murdock. He also gives us the skinny on his first solo Daredevil effort, the Daredevil: Luke Cage Match one-shot coming out in May. Enjoy!

    Reading this interview – which was excellent – made me question why Mr. Johnston has gone out of his way to claim that this is, ultimately, Andy Diggle’s book. His description of the creative process explicitly notes that they are equals. Is this just a false modesty? A reflection of the fact that Diggle began this run and therefore set the overall story direction? Either way, I say, “Take the credit you’re due, Mr. Johnston!” This is the Diggle-Johnston run on DD… and I like it!

    Aaron: It’s just reality, not modesty. Andy and I do collaborate, and of course we respect one another as writers and so on — but he was the creator Marvel passed DD onto after Brubaker, not me. If I left tomorrow, Andy would continue writing DD, just like before. However, if Andy left Marvel would almost certainly look for a new creator.

    “Oh, and it’s about Foggy stepping into the spotlight for once. Poor guy”

    I think I should be thrilled… but the “poor Boy” bit keeps me a bit concerned 😉
