Coming up in Daredevil: Dark Nights

Hello all! I will post a review of Daredevil: Dark Nights #1 some time next week (and I’ll probably do a write-up of Daredevil: End of Days too, eventually), but for now I’m just going to basically transcribe the information on the last page which tells us what comes next, after Lee Week’s three-issue stint:

“We’re honored to have Lee Weeks, one of Daredevil’s most legendary creators, kick off the series. His three-part epic of the human struggle, ANGELS UNAWARE, is only the tip of the iceberg. With issues 4 and 5, we’ll see David Lapham write and draw WHAT A DAY, WHAT A NIGHT as Matt Murdock chases a fugitive against the backdrop of an Avengers-level alien threat to the city of New York. Finally, in issues #6-#8, Jimmy Palmiotti and Thony Silas take Daredevil out of Hell’s Kitchen and to the sunny shores of Miami Beach as he must team with Misty Knight to rescue a kidnapped client, in THE TRIP!

Matt Murdock’s life is never simple – the life of a crusader for justice never is – so we’re proud to present these stories showing what Matt’s up to outside the pages of the main Daredevil book, and even more humbled that you’d pick up our book, too. So sit back and enjoy, because here comes Daredevil!”

It is tough to get a full grasp of what kind of stories these other two arcs will be so they could be totally hit or miss, but it’ll be interesting to see what the creators have in store. In general, I kind of like Daredevil-out-of-his-element type of stories, which seems to be the common denominator for all three of these tales, actually. What do you guys think?

Well, my personal (i.e. professional) life is rather challenging these days, and will be for the next couple of weeks, but I’ll try to blog as often as I can, as my energy levels permit. Have a great week everyone!

  1. I’m excited! I really enjoyed the first issue, as it felt I was transported back to the Miller 80’s era. Although a little too overtly religious at points, I think it re-affirmed Daredevil’s on again/off again affiliations faith well. Even though DD asks the doctors to pray, he still jumps–and stumbles–into action, which represents how–if in any way–his Catholic background has influenced him. Daredevil may be guided by his past faith; however, it is his character that makes him a hero. In all, I hope the other issues will refine what makes him unique and different from every other hero in the Marvel U.

  2. Lapham’s arc sounds exactly like what I would expect from DD’s role in an Avengers-level crisis, taking care of the down-to-earth matters that slip through the cracks in such a crisis instead of trying to slap Thanos in the face.

    Forget End of Days, this is the DD mini that I’ve been wanting to read.

  3. Off topic: What happened to the Gladiator after Brubaker s run? . Be well.

  4. Matt Murdock in Miami? Dare we hope for a beach scene?
