02/19 - DAREDEVIL ANNUAL

Coming in May is a special DAREDEVIL Annual written by Chip Zdarsky and drawn by Chris Sprouse.

The cover is drawn by Zdarsky and it's curiously titled "One More Day", which will no doubt bring up memories of the Spider-Man story with the same name.

Is something similar happening with DD?

Zdarsky spoke briefly with Newsarama, promising that "everything changes" and the story will affect both Matt Murdock and Wilson Fisk.

02/07 - MAN WITHOUT FEAR MARVEL SELECT Edition

If you've been waiting for a hardcover of the DAREDEVIL: THE MAN WITHOUT FEAR series, Marvel will be releasing an edition as part of the "Marvel Select" line. Here's the updated cover image and solicitation.

(W) Frank Miller (A/CA) John Romita, Jr.

Continuing the series of graphic novels handpicked by Marvel Editorial to showcase pivotal storylines written and drawn by some of Marvel's most acclaimed creators! A fire burns deep within Matt Murdock. He was raised by a single father, an over-the-hill prizefighter with one last chance to make it good - a chance that cost him his life. Taunted and tormented by the other children while growing up, Matt's life was irrevocably altered after he was blinded by radioactive materials while saving an old man's life. The payoff? Though his sight was gone forever, his other four senses had become superhumanly enhanced - and his difficult childhood had instilled in him a keen intelligence and an unbreakable will. Matt Murdock's story is one of love, pain, disappointment and strength. Witness the tour de force origin of Daredevil, the Man Without Fear, by industry legends Frank Miller and John Romita Jr.! Collecting DAREDEVIL: THE MAN WITHOUT FEAR #1-5..

02/06 - DAREDEVIL Back In Red

DAREDEVIL IS BACK IN RED THIS MAY!

Chip Zdarsky and Marco Checchetto continue their acclaimed run on the man without fear!

New York, NY— February 6, 2020 — Chip Zdarsky began his run on DAREDEVIL last year by having Matt Murdock hang up the suit and his super hero alter ego after tragedy struck. This May, Matt will suit up in his iconic costume once again when a lawless Hell’s Kitchen needs his help like never before in the new story arc, “Truth/Dare.”

Zdarsky’s refreshing takes on classic Daredevil elements and characters have made DAREDEVIL one of the most acclaimed comic books hitting stands today! And after a three-part story with guest artist Jorge Fornés, May’s DAREDEVIL #21 will reunite Zdarsky with comics superstar Marco Checchetto – making it sure to stand out as one of the most explosive and stylish books coming this spring. Don’t miss the new chapter of the book that Comicbook.com called “A magnificently complex super hero comic… one of the best super hero comics to be found” this May!

01/28 - Marco Checchetto Interview

David Harper at Sktchd.com has a new interview with DAREDEVIL artist Marco Checchetto.

An excerpt:

I love drawing sad and melancholic characters. You know, the kind of gloomy characters (who are like) gargoyles when it’s raining. Spider-Man is my favorite character and the stories I like the most about him are his sad or tragic stories. Daredevil is like Spidey but his stories are always gloomy and gruesome. (laughs) I am a happy and smiling person and I love sharing time with my friends. But when I’m working, I like sadness and darker tones.

I’m so lucky to work with Chip Zdarsky. At first I was a little worried because Chip is crazy. He wrote a lot of funny stories. I loved his run on Spectacular Spider-Man. But when my editors (told) me he was working on Daredevil, I was a bit skeptical.

I was wrong! Chip is writing the best Daredevil (run) possible for me. He’s so dark and the feel is the same from the Miller/Nocenti runs, the best moment for the character, in my opinion. So, when I read the script I decided to take back the same atmosphere in the art too.

We have the same vision for Daredevil and we are working very well together.

2020-01-16-24-Years-of-Man-Without-Fear

01/16 - 24 Years of Man Without Fear

Another year has passed and the site is celebrating its 24th year.

I've told the story many times... I started the site at university in 1996 and through some fortunate luck I've been able to keep it going, getting the chance to interact with thousands of DD fans and creators, all the while having fun.

And it's still fun. The day it starts feeling like a chore I will stop.

I'm working on a few interviews to celebrate the birthday. Be on the lookout for them this week or next week. I appreciate all the visitors I've "met" along the way.

As always, thank you,

What's ahead?

Chip Zdarsky told me in an interview that he has outlines up to issue #30.

The one year anniversary of DAREDEVIL S3 passed, as did the cancellation date. Less than one year remains before Marvel can use Daredevil again... where will he end up? Movies? TV? Hulu? Disney+? Marvel TV is now under Kevin Feige, as is the comics division.

What are you most excited for in 2020?

The site will be celebrating its 24th year in January!
