I dunno. I think given the current "SHOCK! SHOCK! SHOCK!" mentality of Marvel, I think it's the height of believable.
Sadly, I agree. Believable. But I also must add -- stupid. One of the stupidest moves Quesada has made so far in his interminably long run as Editor-in-Chief, especially since Daredevil is one of the reasons he has that job in the first place.
I don't post usually. I don't think the title will be "cancelled" in the "literal" sense. We will definitively get a relaunch in some form soon. But it's also the proof to me that, for sure, we probably won't see Matt as daredevil for one of two years
We may not know, but if it's the case, I will drop a book I have enjoyed and bought eagerly since its relaunch. I have never complained of the artists changing, but I have just no interest in seeing a gimmick.
That being said, I knew that DD secret identity crisis will become a problem at some point. On the short term, it gave us some great stories. But it could only send us to darker stories with a darker Matt, bringing him to self destruction. It was also clear that Bendis didn't knew how to get out of this.
When Andy Diggle took the book, I've had a bad feeling. The quick and unexpected departure of Brubaker after the 500's issue left me with a strange sensation. I felt something happened, that Brubaker had more stories to tell but that there were some editorial disagreement about it, that maybe Brubaker's idea of Matt being in charge of the Hand had given some bad ideas to Quesada (and maybe Bendis)
With time, I forgot it. But, sadly, I may be right. I still hope Matt will stay has Daredevil. You can clearly see the Daredevil two "D" in the missing part of the combined "new Man without Fear" poster. That being said, I fear the worst.
I've been reading DD since 69...when I was 6yrs old...quit comics in the early mid 90's..stayed gone till last year and it was DD that brought me back..I have since collected all issues of the new run and found most to be great.....now this.
It is a slap in the face to DD fans everywhere....and worse of all it feels like a stunt..nothing else...

I would guess this is a stunt, probably due to low sales. IIRC, until Shadowland, it was doing about 10,000 fewer per month once Brubaker left. It's lingering in the mid 30s now. Hopefully we will get a relaunch with a great team.....Rucka maybe.
