    Comics Newsarama (www.fandom.com/comics) posted some info today concerning upcoming Marvel Knights titles and info on DD projects. About DD: Yellow, writer Jeph Loeb had this to say:

    "It will be dealing with the period between when Matt Murdoch (sic) first put on the yellow costume, and will end when Matt decided to change into his red costume," said Loeb. "But it's not just about the costume. The idea at the very beginning was to try to figure out why he made this change. I started looking at the costume and there was something there. It symbolized a time in his life that we don't know any more.

    "Early on, he was really an action-adventure kind of guy, much closer to Spider-Man then Batman. After he avenged the death of his father, he got over it, unlike Batman. During that time, he was more like Indiana Jones, having a good time and bumping into Marvel characters. This will show the light, adventuresome, early days of a hero, when he didn't know any better."

    Joe Quesada also hinted that if fan reaction is positive and some creators jump on, Echo may have her own special project from Marvel Knights.

    There will also be a 3rd Frank Miller Daredevil Visionaries collection, though no date has been announced. The first collection ships in October, and the second in February 2001.

    Bendis said, "The one aspect of Daredevil that I didnt get to explore in my run in the Daredevil series is the kung fu movie side of Daredevil. I love this part of him and it has gone untouched for a long time. I had some big ideas about doing this in a really fun way that wouldnt just be ripping off Frank Miller;s run. Joe really liked my ideas about bringing the art of the kung fu movie into Daredevil and finally giving me an opportunity to help choreograph new types of comic book fight scenes. I mean, all comic book fight scenes use the same five moves and I wanted to try some new stuff. New choreography."

    Bendis also revealed that he and David Mack will be producing another issue of DD, bringing their total to 4 issues. It will also be a Ben Urich themed story.

    Dardevil: Ninja will be released in October.

    Joe Quesada informed the mailing list this past week that even though he wanted to send the badly printed DD#12 back to the printers, it seems Marvel sent it back on their own and 'fixed' it at their original printing location. Diamond still has it listed to ship this coming week and Quesada himself has seen a rough copy of the issue. What this means is that the delay that was supposed to happen *may* not happen now and the issue might ship on the 19th as originally planned.

  • 10/04 - [Miller rumours]

Full details at Comicon.com.

  • 06/04 - [DD #12 in 4 weeks]

    Rather than release a badly printed book, Joe Quesada has told Marvel to go back to press to reprint the issue. This will push the release date back another 2 weeks. Joe wants to know your opinions... did he do the right thing by sending it back to the printers? Or should he have just let the issue ship in the state it was in? Post your comments on the message board.

    DD #11 is done and somewhere in the production process. Jimmy and I have finished writing DD #12 and Rob Haynes has handed in a magnificent issue, that is also in the production stages. For those of you who are expecting Rob to be a clone of my style, you're going to be sorely disappointed. The reason Rob is doing DD is because his stuff is so unique that we feel it will capture its own audience.

    Matt Poslusny, of Comic Book Profiles, has prepared a special book for the legendary former penciler of Daredevil, Gene Colan! Knowing that DD fans wanted more info on the book, I asked Poslusny to give some details on the project:

    "The book will be 120 pages, perfect bound, and will include a 2 page insert bound inside. The retail price of the book will be $19.95. It is being published by As You Like It Publications, publishers of Comic Book Profiles."

  • 05/02 - [Isabella talks about DD]

    I recently got in contact with upcoming Daredevil writer Tony Isabella to get a few words about the project he and Eddy Newell are doing for the Marvels Comics 5th week line. While Isabella is excited about the comic, he wants fans to be excited about it too.

    "While I appreciate your interest in the Daredevil comic I'm doing with Eddy Newell, I'm trying to keep the details of the book as secret as possible. In this age when readers know so much about what happens in the comics before they read them, I'd like to see if I can't surprise them for a change."

    When asked about his views on writing Daredevil again after several years and his teaming with former Black Lightning penciler Eddy Newell, Isabella had this to say:

    "I can't answer the first question without giving away plot elements, but I can say that it's been an absolute delight to work with Eddy again. He can draw better than 99% of the guys out there and it's all in service of the story. I hope this is just the first of many more Isabella/Newell collaborations to come."

    New fans to Daredevil may want to check out Daredevil (vol.1) #119-123, where Isabella teamed with Bob Brown on an excellent run which featured HYDRA and SHIELD.

    Marvels Comics Daredevil #1 will ship in May.

  • 31/01 - [Quesada talks with Your Man At Marvel]

    Here's the latest bit on the Bendis/Mack DD arc from Joe Quesada at the Your Man At Marvel site (www.marvel.com/yourman):

    As we threatened last week, here is Part Two of Marvel Knights' never-ending crusade to try and get more DAREDEVIL into the sweaty little mitts of fans clamoring for the epitome of comic book high art and adventure.

    As mentioned last week, Jimmy and I will be writing issue #12, which will be a short interlude in David Mack's storyline. Art will be by our next MK superstar, Rob Haynes. (Hey, open up the file I sent you -- it's got some way cool Haynes preview art!) Now let's get to the matter at hand.

    Well, I'm sure you've heard rumors, and we're here to confirm it. Jimmy and I managed to get David Mack into Jimmy's Mom's basement and beat him with a laundry bag full of oranges (this keeps him from bruising while inflicting the maximum amount of pain). After twenty or so minutes, David succumbed and agreed to apply his magnificent artistic genius to the hallowed pages of DAREDEVIL. We beat him some more until he agreed to paint it, at which point we beat him again just for the heck of it! Here was the problem, we needed to make up time, and for Jimmy and I to write three issues wasn't going to help out the scheduling situation. So we set our sights high and shot for the moon. What did we come up with? Well, in typical Knights' fashion we got an early Christmas (or late, depending on how you look at your calendar). It would seem as if the very Gods of Asgard were smiling upon us as we managed to tap into the hottest craze hitting the nation...

    BENDISMANIA!

    That's right, you've heard it here first! The incomparable Brian Michael Bendis (or just Bendis to us in the know) will be joining us here at the Castle of Concepts for a three-issue romp through the dark, gritty world of Daredevil! Bendis, better known for his creator-owned, award-winning titles like Jinx and Torso, his acclaimed Sam And Twitch book for the skinny guy with McGuire's balls, his new Image title Powers, and his upcoming screenwriting work for Miramax Films, is our newest Knight! Even Entertainment Weekly has picked up on BENDISMANIA! This week's issue gives Bendis' Hollywood tell-all comic book Fortune and Glory a rave review!

    We're all foaming at the mouth at the thought of Bendis and David Mack (applying his cornea-burning Kabuki style) collaborating for us on MK's flagship title. Their offbeat three-issue story line will begin with DAREDEVIL #16 and conclude in issue #18. This storyline is so moving that Stan Lee himself promised me he would stab me through the heart with his pencil if I gave away any of the juicy details!

    So, for those readers of DAREDEVIL who have fallen in love with David Mack's approach and are feeling like it might end too early, don't sweat it. We've got your back with more Mack, more Mack, and more Mack!

    Now I know, Your Man, that you're dying to hear more (because that's what you do), but you're just going to have to be patient. There should be another letter coming your way sometime soon -- we just need to get Bendis into Jimmy's Mom's basement first!"

  • 31/01 - [Bendis talks about DD]

    Recently announced DD writer Brian Michael Bendis talked with Michael Doran of the Mania site's Daily Buzz (www.mania.com/buzz/index.asp) about his upcoming arc with David Mack. He has good news for DD fans:

    "They're written. We didn't want to announce anything we weren't totally positive we could deliver."

    If you're looking to get any info on the storyline, you won't get it from Bendis:

    "One of the hardships about an announcement like this is that you don't want people to start trying to envision what the story will be like before the comic hits the stand. You want as much intrigue and surprise as you can muster. And in this Internet world it is not always that easy. Especially with work you are as proud of as I am about my turn on DD."

  • 31/01 - [Quesada announcement about Bendis/Mack]

    Here's the online announcement from Joe Quesada about Brian Michael Bendis and David Mack's arc on Daredevil. The 'official' Your Man At Marvel release will be posted later on today.

    AN ONLINE RELEASE FROM JOE QUESADA

    As I mentioned last week, Jimmy and I have been working on ways to get DD on schedule while still maintaining the high standards that we expect each issue. We realized that the only way for this to happen was for us to start bringing in some new talent to take over the title for a few issues. this would enable us to take a breath and get to work Bob Gale's epic story arc. I'm sure you've all heard the rumors and I'm here now to confirm them. After much wining and dining and many a crank phone call pretending to be Hollywood agents interested in his work (sshhhh, I think he believes those were actual agents calling), Brian Michael Bendis is joining us and will be writing an earth shattering three part story arc. As for the art chores, well this one was a no brainer. He had a break in his schedule and fans have been raving about his writing stint on DD thus far, so David Mack has jumped at the chance at working with his good friend Bendis (sorry, I can only call him that Brian Michael crap once per press release) and continuing what he's started on DD. David will be painting issues #16-18 and Bendis will be providing the snappy dialogue. Again, this will hopefully help get DD on schedule while at the same time give fans and retailers more of "The Man Without Fear." Who would have thought that Daredevil would be in such high demand!

    It's our opinion that these two lunatics (Bendis and Mack) are really the future of comics! These creators are the spearhead of a new creative blood supply that has been growing in the far off fertile lands of indy publishing and that we're trying to bring to the dried up wasteland that has become mainstream comics. At MK, Jimmy and I are always looking at who could be the next big thing. We saw it in Paul Jenkins and J.G. Jones and we've known it about David Mack for some time, and last year we caught wind of the hurricane which we have coined "BENDISMANIA!"

    So, as always we remain open for any follow up questions you might have. As of this press release there is no preview art available.

    Joe Quesada

  • 31/01 - [Bendis and Mack confirmed for DD]

    Brian Michael Bendis and David Mack will be the creators on Daredevil #16-18. Watch for more details later this morning as I get the full press announcement. Bendis will write with Mack painting each issue while Bob Gale, Joe Quesada and Jimmy Palmiotti get a head start on their arc.

  • 28/01 - [Price increase]

    As noted earlier, Marvel is increasing its prices in April. The main line is going up to $2.25 US. How does this affect Daredevil, which already cost $2.50 to begin with? Well, it looks like DD will cost $2.99 US/$4.50 CDN in April!

  • 25/01 - [Shipping update]

    The Kabuki Reflections book is not listed again to ship. Its new ship date is Feb.16. However, there will be a new DD T-Shirt - The 'Senses' shirt - available on Wednesday.

  • 24/01 - [More on DD interlude]

    Here is more info on the announced DD#12 interlude issue from Your Man At Marvel (http://www.marvel.com/news
    /yourman/yourman.html) as Joe Quesada talks with YM@M:

    "Let it be known that in our never ending quest to get DAREDEVIL out on time, Jimmy and myself have been taking steps towards helping retailers and fans get more of what folks are saying is one of comicdom's most popular titles. As you know, Your Man ('cause that's what you do), this plan has been well under way for quite some time now. Rather than announcing it before it was appropriate, Jimmy and I (and you) have been keeping this bit of exciting news under wraps, even through the slings and arrows of heated e-mails saying we're just sitting on our laurels.

    "We're now ready to spring some pretty cool stuff on all the Marvel Knightlites out there. Hopefully, this bit of news will help fans and retailers alike realize that we're trying to do everything within our power to get DAREDEVIL out and to the people!

    "The first step in this process will be DAREDEVIL #12, which takes an intimate look at the lives of the people that make Hell's Kitchen so steamy. Rather than just slap together any old thing, Jimmy and I have written a story that will fit in seamlessly between the gaps of David Mack's current story and give it some extra flavor without interrupting its flow. It will also help in giving me some much-needed breathing room to catch up as well.

    "Why is it written by Jimmy and me, you ask? Well, because we felt that the issue had to be respectful of Mack's tale and still retain the feel we've been bringing to DAREDEVIL for the last 10 issues. David aside, we're much more familiar with what he has planned for DD and Echo than anyone.

    "Also, our commitment to bringing fans the best comic books we can doesn't stop there. We will also introduce fans to someone who we believe will be our next bright artistic star. Much like Marvel Knights pushed the artwork of J.G. Jones to the forefront (in BLACK WIDOW), so will we once again with Rob Haynes. All we can say about Rob is that his heroic style is unlike anything we've ever seen before. Amazingly unique yet instantly appealing (but you already know this, Your Man... 'cause that's what you do!). There is no one out there drawing like this guy, and we aim to show the comic book world (he's already known online for his work on Marvel.com's EXCELSIOR THEATRE and CYBERCOMICS, not to mention the amazing art at his Lockblok Web site)! So tell everyone to watch out for DAREDEVIL #12 (hittin' the streets on April 5th), written by Jimmy and me, and illustrated masterfully by Rob Haynes. That's Rob Haynes, I say!

    "By the way, David Mack continues as writer with issue #13.

    "Now, the fun doesn't stop there! Jimmy and I will have some more exciting news involving the Man Without Fear and scheduling, but you'll have to wait until next week to find out. But you already know that... 'cause that's what you do!"

  • 24/01 - [Isabella/Newell DD #1 announced]

    As part of a special 'Marvels Comics' 5th week project in May, Daredevil will have a special DD #1 by Tony Isabella and Eddy Newell. Here is the preview blurb for it:

    Daredevil #1
    Tony Isabella/Eddy Newell
    He's a failed demon who seeks an entrance into Heaven on the Earthly plain, haunting the back alleys and mean streets of Hell's Kitchen, dispensing his brutal brand of Stygian retribution! But what happens when the Hell-born Daredevil meets an Earth-bound angel? And lurking in the shadows: the Warlord of Crime!

  • 24/01 - [Daredevil interlude announced]

    The Daily Buzz is reporting an announcement by Joe Quesada that he will not be pencilling DD #11 in an attempt to get the delayed comic back on schedule. More details are supposedly forthcoming from Your Man At Marvel, but here is what Quesada said in his announcement:

    "Today, Marvel will be releasing news about our attempts to help get back on schedule and put more product in the hands of fans and retailers. The first step will be an interlude in David Mack's story arc. After David's issue #11 hits the stands it will be followed by a short story written by Jimmy and myself and illustrated by a young artist named Rob Haynes. Rob is, in our opinion, our next Marvel Knights star. The story will be an extension of Mack's and will involve Daredevil and Echo, but will in no way interrupt, change or alter anything in David's story line. David's story line will continue with issue #13. Most of this will be covered in today's 'Your Man at Marvel' (http://www.marvelcomics.com/news /your_man/index.html)."

    "I realize that this may seem like a Band-Aid on cancer, but there is more yet to be announced Like I said, this is just the tip of the iceberg. We've been making plans for several months now to resolve this problem and we're just glad that the time has come that we can be a bit more loose-lipped about it."

  • 21/01 - [Marvel raising prices in April]

  • 21/01 - [Bendis on DD?]

    Image Comics has released information for comics shipping in April 2000, and Powers, the new comic by Brian Michael Bendis and Mike Oeming is listed. What is interesting is this part of the solicitation:

    ...find out in the gritty, new crime comic book series Powers from super hot comic writer and EISNER award winner Brian Michael Bendis (Sam And Twitch, Daredevil, Jinx, Batman) and art deco comic artist Mike Avon Oeming (Young Justice, Superman).
    Look for more details this week, as Bendis has mentioned on his site that his 'major project' will be announced sometime during the week. Is his major project Daredevil?

  • 17/01 - [DD 10 this week, Kabuki Reflections delay]

One of those titles featured will be Marvel Boy by Grant Morrison and J.G. Jones. The other title is by Chuck Dixon and Eduarto Barreto, and their title will focus on team-ups with characters that exist in Daredevil and Punisher's world. The title of their comic? Marvel Knights.

    Matt Murdock makes a small appearance as the FF's attorney in FF #27, out this week. How small is the appearance? It's one panel. But DD's on the cover too, for all you completists out there.

  • 03/01 - [Daredevil vs Punisher reprints]

    Your Man At Marvel is reporting that some past DD vs Punisher stories will be reprinted in a special edition in April. It will be entitled, surprisingly enough, 'Daredevil vs Punisher'. The Miller story 'Child's Play' will be a part of this reprinting.
