The comic book community was shocked a few weeks ago when word came that Mark Waid’s current run on “Daredevil” would be coming to an end in February of 2014. Well good news everyone, the series is only ending because Waid and series artist Chris Samnee are relaunching the book in March with a shiny new #1. Where will the new series leave horn head? Read on for more details
“We were actually given the opportunity by Marvel to relaunch with a #1 last year as part of the Marvel NOW! initiative,” Waid said in an interview with Nerdist. “Which absolutely would have boosted sales–but together, the team agreed that since we were in the middle of a storyline, it would be a gimmick, not an organic shift. When the opportunity arose to relaunch again this year, it made a lot more sense given the way we’re about to change literally every aspect of Matt Murdock’s life. Every aspect.
One of those aspects in Murdock’s life that is getting changed? His location.
“Without spoiling too much of the final issue of the previous series, we can tell you that Matt has to leave New York and, in many ways, has no choice but to return to California–specifically, California, no where else to go. But that’s where he and his cast will hang their collective hat from now on.”
Waid and Samnee’s Daredevil #1 launches in March of 2014. Will you be picking it up?
