Some additions to the ComiXology store/Marvel app for DAREDEVIL, as issues #508-512 have been made available. This only leaves #20-25 left for Volume 2, but I get the sneaking suspicion we may not be seeing #20-25 for a long time, considering it's never been collected. Hopefully they can start working on getting more issues of Volume 1 on there.
DAREDEVIL #21 comes out December 19th, and if you've read it, you know why the final few pages have brought some attention to the book. Because of this special appearance, Marvel will be reprinting issue #21. At this time it hasn't been officially announced by Marvel, but you can use code NOV128142 to order it from your store. It will ship January 30th, 2013. So, if you can't find a copy, you're in luck.
It's been quite the year for DAREDEVIL in 2012, as fans have had plenty of great news this year in comics and movies. So, in case you've forgotten, here are all the highlights of what happened with Daredevil.

The Devil is in the Details: Examining Matt Murdock and Daredevil
This book from Sequart Research & Literacy Organization, edited by Ryan K Lindsay, collects essays about Marvel's Daredevil from some of today's best writers about comics. It is slated to be published in early 2013, Diamond order codes will be made available once solicited.

This book is the definitive guide to Daredevil and his entire world.

'The Only Way Is Down . Brubaker's Saga as 70s Cinematic Noir' by Ryan K Lindsay analyses the Brubaker/Lark/Gaudiano run against the cinematic noir cornerstones of the 70s.
A variety of topics and approaches are presented in this book. This is a creation all about Daredevil by people who love Daredevil.

Pop-Topia had a chance to interview current DAREDEVIL: END OF DAYS artist Klaus Janson about the series, and what it's like to work on a Daredevil book again. He also gives his views on DD's supporting cast and if the series should be considered as canon.
DAREDEVIL editor Steve Wacker dropped by CBR and answered several questions related to all the titles he works on, and there was a sneak peek of the cover to DAREDEVIL #24 by Chris Samnee. Some DD-related questions he answered include:
"My question is about Daredevil, I was wondering if we would see the character's old rogues come back in the near future. I miss the Owl, Typhoid Mary, Bullseye and the like. I love the what Waid is doing with the book, but I still kinda miss some of the old stuff."
"Are there any plans to do something exciting with Stilt-Man in Daredevil any time soon?"
"I'm really enjoying Daredevil and was wondering.Will Matt ever talk to Natasha, Elektra, Maya, or Dakota again? He came back to the city and we aren't sure if these characters are aware that Matt is back, nor do we know their reactions."
"Also is there a possibility of ever seeing Cap in DD's story again? Last time we saw the two Cap wanted to bring Matt in after the Shadowland incident (#2) will we ever see that continuance?"
Earlier in the week, Wacker also stopped by Comics Beat to do an interview as well...
Last month, Daredevil made a surprise appearance in the final pages of WINTER SOLDIER #12, as DD finds himself as the next target in Bucky's plans. On December 12, the story continues and here's the preview, by Ed Brubaker and Butch Guice!

DAREDEVIL: END OF DAYS #3 by Bendis, Mack, Janson, Sienkiewicz and Hollingsworth:
X-MEN #39 by Peck and Azaceta:
Some additions to the ComiXology store/Marvel app for DAREDEVIL, as issues #501-507 have been made available. This only leaves #20-25 and #508-512 left for Volume 2, but I get the sneaking suspicion we may not be seeing #20-25 for a long time, considering it's never been collected.
On Twitter, director Joe Carnahan revealed who he would have liked in the Daredevil role had his vision for the movie been given the go ahead.
@thealexlynch97 I think Joel Edgerton would have been tremendous in that role.— Joe Carnahan (@carnojoe) November 28, 2012
Actor Joel Edgerton, who appeared in Carnahan's SMOKIN' ACES in 2006, was Carnahan's choice. Coincidently, Edgerton appeared with ELEKTRA actress Jennifer Garner in this year's THE ODD LIFE OF TIMOTHY GREEN:
The actor has also played Owen Lars in the STAR WARS prequels, and the recent THE THING.
What do you think of his choice?
I went to the one-day Toronto Comicon at the Royal York hotel on Sunday, and got autographs from former DAREDEVIL artists Clay Mann and Cary Nord.
Here are some of the items I bought...
Got this print of DARK REIGN: ELEKTRA #1 (variant) by Clay Mann

Sad news to report, as former DAREDEVIL artist Hector Collazo passed away Sunday at the young age of 45. Collazo worked on the book inking over Scott McDaniel on the Fall From Grace arc, Tree of Knowledge, and the ELEKTRA: ROOT OF EVIL series.
Through the site, I've had the chance to correspond with Mr. Collazo, first in 1999 for an interview, and years later for the DD: FALL FROM GRACE retrospective. He was always nice to chat with, and his love for comics shone through.
My condolences to the Collazo family.

DAREDEVIL: END OF DAYS editor Stephen Wacker and cover artist Alex Maleev spoke with CBR's Dave Richards about the series.
"It's intimidating to work on this character because he's had 30 years of legendary runs. There's something about Matt Murdock and Daredevil that our writers key into and it brings out the best in them. I know that sounds corny, but Daredevil has really been just a parade of good runs," Wacker said.

DAREDEVIL editor Stephen Wacker posted some test-runs of the DD: END OF DAYS #1 covers on Twitter today. Of note is the great logo by Manny Mederos!
DAREDEVIL: END OF DAYS #1 by Bendis, Mack, Janson and Sienkiewicz, ships October 3rd.
First up, the regular cover by Alex Maleev:
Next, a variant cover by David Mack:
And the last one, a collage variant by Pascal Garcin:
Michael Clarke Duncan, who portrayed the Kingpin in the 2003 DAREDEVIL movie, has passed away at age 54. He had suffered a heart attack in July and did not fully recover.
While Duncan was a somewhat controversial choice as the crime boss, it is hard to imagine who else could have stepped into the role for the DD movie.
In 2002, I asked director Mark Steven Johnson what Duncan would bring to the yet-to-be filmed movie, and this is what he said:
I knew that there would be some controversy on this one. I looked at a lot of actors. Wrestlers. You name it. But in the end, I went with the best big man working today. To me, MCD is more true to the comic book than anyone else out there. The most important thing about the Kingpin is not whether he's black or white, it's whether or not he strikes fear into you. You must believe that he could grab Daredevil and snap his spine in half. If you go with someone smaller, he becomes Lex Luther. Remember, Affleck is over 6'3". He dwarfs a lot of the so-called "big men." I don't want to use special effects to make somebody bigger because, again, that takes me away from the reality of the film. MCD is going to play him as Wilson Fisk. Not a hip-hop version. Not a street version. He's true in every way to the character from the comic book -- except that he's black. If I stayed true to the race of the comic book, I'd have an all-white cast. And how true to life is that? Regardless, this isn't about race. If MCD was white I'd cast him. If he was Hispanic I'd cast him. He just happens to be black and the best actor for the role. In the end, I think he's going to be the ultimate Kingpin.
Condolences to Michael Clarke Duncan's family. An actor who was well-respected and had a reputation as being a "gentle giant" and genuine nice man.
Some new interviews with DAREDEVIL writer Mark Waid were posted online over the past week, so head on over to PasteMagazine.com and Comicosity.com for more hints of what's to come for Daredevil and Waid's other projects!
It was announced that writer Seth Peck and artist Paul Azaceta will be taking over X-Men with issue #38... and Peck revealed on Twitter (@sethmpeck) that issues #38 and #39 will have Daredevil as guest-star. Azaceta then posted this sneak peek:
Peck also mentioned: "So if you ever wanted to see Domino and Daredevil take down a casino full of super-villains, X-men #38 will scratch that particular itch."
At today's Marvel Heroes' panel at PAX 2012, Daredevil, Punisher & Squirrel Girl were officially announced to be part of the game. Here's the trailer that was shown and it features our man without fear!

Fan Expo 2012 has come and gone and I had a chance to go on Sunday. I was lucky to meet Dimetre from the board and also met editors Steve Wacker and Nick Lowe.
I also bought lots of Daredevil-related prints from artists Jason Copland, Michael Walsh and Geof Isherwood. Enjoy the pics!
And the last one, a Daredevil print by Geof Isherwood. twitter.com/manwithoutfear.— ManWithoutFear.com (@manwithoutfear) August 27, 2012

DAREDEVIL writer Mark Waid spoke with Marvel.com about a new threat to Matt Murdock who will make his(?) debut in issue #18. Check out Chris Samnee's preview artwork for the Coyote!
Looks like FOX may not go ahead with Joe Carnahan's DAREDEVIL reboot with a 70's vibe. The director posted an update on Twitter today and it doesn't look good for a movie through FOX...
Think my idea for a certain retro, red-suited, Serpico-styled superhero went up in smoke today kids.— Joe Carnahan (@carnojoe) August 14, 2012
We shall see. Time is NOT on anyone's side.— Joe Carnahan (@carnojoe) August 14, 2012
Is Daredevil heading back to Marvel, or will FOX just pull something together in time for October 10th?
Joe Carnahan may not get a chance to make his version of DAREDEVIL, but he took to Twitter tonight to release two "sizzle reels" as he called them, to demonstrate what he had pitched to FOX.
Check them out, there's an NC-17 version and a PG version. Thanks to Mr. Carnahan for posting these!
What do you think? Does this 1973 version of DD work for you?
Daredevil fans have sent me tons of pics of their fan-made costumes to display on the site, and today, Claire Laffar sent me pics of her Typhoid Mary costume she created. As always, if you've got some DD-related cosplay you want to share, send me an email! question at manwithoutfear dot com.
June & July sales data has been updated, and there was some odd orders coming in from comic shops... Issue #14 shipped almost 5K more than issue #13, but then issue #15 gave back that increase...
DAREDEVIL #14, shipped 43.9K, a 4.8K increase from DD#13.
DAREDEVIL #15 strangely decreased 5.4K.
VARIETY is reporting that director Joe Carnahan is in negotiations to take over the DAREDEVIL reboot, but there are other back-room dealings with Marvel that are making things interesting.
Apparently the deadline for a DD movie to get started production is October 10th, but Marvel has suggested a trade of character rights... they want the rights to Silver Surfer and Galactus in exchange for extending the deadline for getting the DD movie started.
What do you think? Should FOX do the deal?
Now Deadline is reporting that FOX is not considering the exchange of character rights and may just let the Daredevil rights lapse unless they can work out a co-financing deal with Marvel.
Lots of things to report, so here we go...
The new JUDGE DREDD movie poster was released online this week and lots of people noticed it looked a lot like the DAREDEVIL poster from 2003... but have you seen the KRRISH poster as well?

Alejandro Arbona worked at Marvel for 5 years, starting as assistant editor, and eventually being promoted to associate editor (and editor on some titles). He worked on DAREDEVIL as assistant to editor Warren Simons, and here we talk about the Brubaker/Lark run on the title and we also get into a great discussion about what an editor does. I hope you enjoy this interview, and many thanks to Mr. Arbona for this opportunity!
CBR's Dave Richards spoke with DAREDEVIL writer Mark Waid about some of the changes that occur in this week's DAREDEVIL #15... so if you haven't read it yet, steer clear of the interview until you've read it! And there are some preview pages from DAREDEVIL #16 which spoil the resolution from DD#15's cliffhanger, so lots of spoilers abound!
Newsarama has posted a new video interview from San Diego Comic-Con with Mark Waid. They discuss the Eisner Awards, Daredevil, and Thrillbent.
The 2012 Eisner Awards were presented last night in San Diego and DAREDEVIL came away with 3 awards!
Congratulations to the DAREDEVIL team, these are all well-deserved.
DAREDEVIL #15 comes out July 18th, and here's a preview! By Mark Waid, Chris Samnee and Javier Rodriguez, how does DD escape from his captors in issue #14? Find out next week!
Big news coming out of Comic-Con... Deadline is reporting that director David Slade has had to drop out of the DD movie reboot due to scheduling conflicts with the Hannibal pilot. FOX has to start making the movie this fall or the rights will revert back to Marvel, so Slade could not work around it.
Do you think FOX will let the rights lapse, or will they frantically look for a new director? Apparently they like the script...
October 2012 solicits are now up on the site, and we've finally got DAREDEVIL: END OF DAYS #1 coming from Bendis, Mack, Janson and Sienkiewicz. We've also got a disturbing cover for DAREDEVIL #19 by Paolo Rivera. The issue will be drawn by Chris Samnee and written by Mark Waid. We've also got the TPB collecting the ClanDestine stories which has the DAREDEVIL Annual by Alan Davis. And there's a Marvel Zombies Halloween special with a great zombie DD cover!
Marvel had a press conference today with all the creators behind the DAREDEVIL: END OF DAYS mini that will finally ship this year. As you may know, this project was announced about 5 years ago!
You can check out the preview art in the live blog at Marvel.com, or check out CBR's report...
DAREDEVIL: END OF DAYS #1 ships in October.
CBR's Axel-in-Charge has some exclusive pages from DAREDEVIL #16 by Chris Samnee. So head on over if you want to check out 3 pages.
There is also something interesting that Axel Alonso says:
"The majority of core titles are involved in this shift, but there is one big title -- and I won't [say] what it is -- that will remain with the current creative team because their plans for the immediate future include a massive story hook that legitimizes it being a Marvel NOW! title, without the creative change."
Think he's talking about DAREDEVIL?
Lots to report, so here we go...

Will DD escape Latveria? DAREDEVIL #15 by Mark Waid, Chris Samnee and Javier Rodriguez, with a cover by Paolo Rivera, ships July 18th!
Forthcoming Daredevil director David Slade took to Twitter yesterday to clarify some statements he made that suggested he was looking at casting Josh Hartnett as Matt Murdock.
Hartnett has worked with Slade previously on 30 DAYS OF NIGHT and had this to say:
Yep, nope, Josh Hartnet is not being discussed or anyone else for DD that was just some wishful thinking, we are not at casting stage.
I had the pleasure of working with Josh on 30 Days, an excellent and under rated actor and a wonderful human being.
More DD debunking I am firmly against shooting in stereo so its unlikely to happen that way, & Fox is rightly against 2D to 3D.
The Daredevil movie is undergoing a rewrite by David James Kelly, and remains at FOX under the guidance of Chernin Entertainment.
DAREDEVIL artist Paolo Rivera revealed in the DD Live Blog today that he will be leaving the art chores on the title (but will still be contributing covers). On his blog, Rivera detailed some of his thoughts on the decision and what he has planned, now that he is ending his exclusive Marvel contract after 10 years. Best of luck to Rivera, who certainly has left his mark on the title!
Marvel.com had a DAREDEVIL Live Blog today and lots of announcements were made.
The biggest news is that Paolo Rivera will be stepping down as artist for DAREDEVIL, but will continue to do covers.
We also had some preview art from DAREDEVIL #15 by Chris Samnee, and we learned what villain will be featured in DAREDEVIL #17, drawn by Mike Allred.
Mark Waid, Paolo Rivera, Chris Samnee, Mike Allred and Steve Wacker were all on the call.
DAREDEVIL #14 ships June 20th, by Mark Waid & Chris Samnee, with a cover by Paolo Rivera, and 2 variants by Mike Deodato and Ed McGuinness. Here's a preview of the issue!
September 2012 solicits are now up, and we've got the issue that was originally slated for #17 (as you saw on June 2nd's news article) by Mark Waid and Chris Samnee and the great cover by Paolo Rivera. We've also got the 3rd HC of the current run coming of DAREDEVIL BY MARK WAID, and also the 3rd ULTIMATE COLLECTION TPB of DAREDEVIL BY ED BRUBAKER & MICHAEL LARK. NEW AVENGERS also promises to have some street-level battles from AvX. What are you going to pick up?
IGN has an exclusive first look at the next issue of AvX: Vs #4 which will feature our own Daredevil vs. Psylocke. The art is by Brandon Peterson. What have you thought of DD's role in AvX so far?
As you probably know, there will be a DAREDEVIL Annual this year by Alan Davis. It is going to be part of a story that runs through three annuals (FF, DD and WOLVERINE) and will feature ClanDestine.
Newsarama had a chance to speak with the writer/artist about the annuals and there are several preview pages from all the issues.
May sales data has been updated, and with THE OMEGA EFFECT crossover finished, DD's two issues dropped back to normal levels.
DAREDEVIL #12, Chris Samnee's first issue, shipped 39.2K, a 6.9K decrease, giving back most of the gains from issue #11.
DAREDEVIL #13 had Khoi Pham return for art duties and there was only a slight 0.1K decrease. DD has shipped in the 38-41K range (aside from #1 and the crossovers) for the relaunch.
Marvel.com has a new interview with DAREDEVIL writer Mark Waid about the events that will occur in DAREDEVIL #14. There are also some preview pages by Chris Samnee!
DAREDEVIL #14 ships June 20, with 2 variant covers as well, by Mike Deodato and Ed McGuiness.

If you bought the latest MARVEL PREVIEWS, you'll no doubt notice the DAREDEVIL #17 solicit and cover by Paolo Rivera. As has been mentioned here and elsewhere, Mike Allred has been announced as artist on issue #17, and Diamond did issue an update of this change. What is also interesting is the solicit itself...
If you don't want to know what is printed, please don't read ahead and do not click on the image below.
Original DAREDEVIL #17 solicit:
* The return of someone Matt thought was gone forever!
* The debut of a new menace in New York - the killer called Coyote!
* And just how sane is Matt Murdock?
* The Eisner nominated creative team is reunited as Paolo Rivera returns!
This is the DD #17 solicit in Previews (cool Rivera cover) but will be used later as Mike Allred is now drawing #17. twitter.com/manwithoutfear.— ManWithoutFear.com (@manwithoutfear) June 2, 2012

Now, let's get a campaign going to have Allred resurrect his DAREDEVIL/MADMAN proposal from a few years ago!

DAREDEVIL movie director David Slade updated fans on his Twitter account yesterday:
"Daredevil update is that there is no real Daredevil update. We all want to make it but its going slow, & details are too boring to print"
"I am focussing on Hannibal hoping after that to be able to get a burst of energy back on DD."
Prior to the 2003 FOX Daredevil movie, Chris Columbus was developing a DD movie with Carlo Carlei. Former DD writer J.M. DeMatteis wrote a screenplay, based on the previous versions Columbus and Carlei had written. DeMatteis has posted some of his movie treatment on his blog (and will be posting more later). Have a look, it's good reading!

Congratulations to the DAREDEVIL team, these are all well-deserved nominations.
If you were collecting DAREDEVIL back in 1993, you may remember that D.G. Chichester had created some interactive press kits to help promote the project. This promo ran only on a Mac and gave details about the story and creators involved. It hasn't been available online for a very long time, but today the former writer of DAREDEVIL let me know that he's posted some new videos online. Since the promos could only run on older Macs, he filmed the user experience with the help of his friend, former DD writer and colourist, Gregory Wright. It's certainly an interesting look back at what early multimedia projects were like and how far we've come now. Thanks to D.G. Chichester!
Spoken Comics is a group of Pepperdine University students who are producing an audio edition of DAREDEVIL #1 in Arabic! I spoke with student coordinator Alexander Booker about the project.

Marvel is pleased to present your first look at, Daredevil #12. The best reviewed comic of the year continues as writer, Mark Waid, welcomes aboard fan favorite artist Chris Samnee (Thor: The Mighty Avenger, Ultimate Comics Spiderman)! Matt Murdock's alter-ego leaves him little time for a social life; but the Man Without Fear finally makes time for Kirsten McDuffie! But, the assistant district attorney's motives aren't so innocent; she's on a mission to uncover Daredevil's true identity at any cost!
"I've been a lifelong Daredevil fan and Mark happens to be one of my all-time favorite funnybook writers," said Samnee. "I've have been head over heels for this latest run of DD since I first caught a glimpse of Paolo's onomatopoeia filled cover for issue one."
"When Chris's pages come in over email, I drop everything to admire them," explained Waid. "He's astounding."
Will Daredevil's super-human senses save him from falling hopelessly in love? Find out in Daredevil #12, hitting comic shops everywhere and the Marvel Comics app, this May; as Samnee joins the all-star Daredevil creative team, creating unimaginable adventures only The Man Without Fear can handle!
"Chris is a profoundly adept storyteller with an eye for posture and mood in all his characters," adds Marvel Senior Editor, Stephen Wacker. He's a perfect complement to his cohort Paolo Rivera's outstanding art on Daredevil and I'm over the moon that he's on board."

Daredevil fan Coop got in touch with me earlier this month to help contribute newsstand edition pictures from Volume 2. If you don't know, issues #16-44 had different covers on the newsstand. Coop scanned his own collection and we went looking for other covers as well. So, check out the new gallery and thanks to Coop once again for all his help.

What is an Artist's Edition?
AN ARTIST'S EDITION PRESENTS COMPLETE STORIES WITH EACH PAGE SCANNED FROM THE ACTUAL ORIGINAL ART.
While appearing to be in black & white, each page has been scanned in COLOR to mimic as closely as possible the experience of viewing the actual original art.for example, you are able to clearly see paste-overs, blue pencils in the art, editorial notes, art corrections. Each page is printed the same size as drawn, and the paper selected is as close as possible to the original art board.

Next week's DAREDEVIL #9 by Mark Waid and Paolo Rivera is finally available for preview.
Here's something you may not have known... apparently in 1983, Columbia Pictures asked Producer Irwin Allen to develop a Daredevil TV show. Allen, who you may know from LOST IN SPACE and THE TOWERING INFERNO, got Tony Kayden (LITTLE HOUSE ON THE PRAIRIE, THE WALTONS) to write a pilot. It was 65 pages long and titled "Blinded by the Light". The cover of the script had issue #200's cover by Byrne/Austin cut out and pasted on it. Judging by some of the sites online that I found, there only seems to be 2 copies of this out there. Allen passed away in 1991. I will see if I can get in contact with Tony Kayden. In the meantime, check out the link for more info!
The interviews continue, as writer Mark Waid discusses the Omega Effect crossover with Marvel.com, along with some preview artwork by Marco Checchetto. The second part of this interview series will continue with Greg Rucka next week!

DAREDEVIL fans have been asking me for months and the day has finally arrived. DAREDEVIL #8 came out today and was also available on the Marvel app for download (@$2.99). This marks the first time a digital issue of DAREDEVIL has been available the same day as the print copy. It remains to be seen if more issues become available, or this was a special case for now, as it was the 2nd part of the crossover with AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #677 (which was available digitally). If you download it, let me know what you thought of it.
To help celebrate the site's 16th anniversary, here's a brand new interview with former ELEKTRA writer Robert Rodi. We discussed his stint on the title after Greg Rucka, the storylines and what it really means to be called an assassin. Hope you enjoy it!
Another year has passed and the site is now 16 years old. To help celebrate, I've posted a new interview with Robert Rodi, who talked with me about his writing stint on ELEKTRA under the Marvel Knights imprint. Hope you enjoy it.
I always struggle to write how much it means to me that people appreciate the work and effort that goes into keeping this site going. So I'll keep it short and sincerely say that I thank everyone who visits. It's a joy to hear from new readers and old, every single day.
