I think I read it on Twitter; Daredevil Reborn will be Andy Diggle's last work on Daredevil. (I read so much information that I can no longer reference where I get it from, but that's another discussion for another day...)

So, isn't about time we speculate on who will be taking over the relaunched Daredevil around April/May of 2011?

Dream teams? Half-assed detective work? Guesses? Nostalgic desires? Isn't that what comic book forums are all about?

Let the rampant speculation begin...

To be filed unashamedly under Nostalgic Desire - I would love to see Ann Nocenti work on a regular basis on this title again. The odds are against it, but her comic book work has increased of late and she did do the thing for DD Black & White not so long ago.

I've no desire to see Miller work on the title again as the last decent thing he did in the world of comic books was probably about 18 years ago.

Whoever it is it seems they'll have some kind of clean slate, and it will be so much better than Diggle. I hope what you think you saw on Twitter has some truth to it.

I think Marvel has a number of writers who would do a good job with Daredevil right now.

I don't think Bendis or Brubaker are coming back to the book. They were both excellent, but I don't see them as the kind of people to revisit their past too much.

Matt Fraction doesn't seem the type to write Daredevil. He's a great writer, don't get me wrong. I think that Thor and Iron Man plays more to his strength. Plus, he seems to have a full slate of work at Marvel right now...

Rick Remender is a possibility. He writes a fairly gritty comic book. I read some of his Punisher. It was decent. I have read his first two issues of Uncanny X-Force and think it's great.

Jason Aaron is a possibility. He's written some things that I have liked -- Astonishing Spider-Man /Wolverine for example. Some things that I am lukewarm about, his Wolverine stuff. Plus, he's one of Marvel's "architects".

Jonathan Hickman is also on Marvels's list of "architects". He's working on three books right now -- Secret Warriors (which is so-so, in my opinion), Fantastic Four (which is getting better and better) and S.H.I.E.L.D. (which is really good, insofar as it's really offbeat and full of good ideas). He might be in Daredevil's future.

Dan Slott's plate is full. He's said in the past he can do 2 or 2 1/2 books a month and he's got that with Amazing Spider-Man. I think he could do a good DD book, but he's off the table for now, as I see it.

Duane Swierczynski would be a logical choice -- he did a very good job on Iron Fist, and a decent job on Cable given the fact that he had to keep Cable in the future for two years worth of comic books. I don't think he's enough of a marquee name to get DD's sales higher, which is always a concern.

Mark Millar writes an exciting book. Sometimes his writing doesn't match the character's voice. Sometimes his writing goes so far over the top that it just seems ridiculous. But if Marvel's ultimate goal is to get Daredevil in the spotlight and increase sales, Millar would be able to do that.

Jeph Loeb seems to be very busy, and that's OK with me.

And the chances are extremely small, but if Frank Miller were to ask for Daredevil -- I am sure Marvel would let him back on the book. But realistically, this isn't going to happen.

DNA (Abnett & Lanning) already are writing Heroes for Hire, which is a street-level book. While they are a great team, they don't seem to sell a lot of books just with their names. They don't seem like a decent possibility.

Fred Van Lente gets better and better all the time. He made Chameleon awesome in ASM. His Taskmaster was an awesome mini-series. His Comic Book Comics shows his deep love and respect for the history of comics. The only way he would get DD would be if he were paired with a "superstar" artist.

Peter David and Mike Carey seem to be working on one (616) book each and doing other stuff. Good writers, but doubtful they will be on DD.

Am I leaving anybody out?

Anyway, my predictions are either Hickman or Aaron.

Give Diggle credit for that.

It definitely seems as if Diggle is about to wipe the slate clean for the next writer.

But what happened to the tradition of leaving the next writer in an impossible situation with Daredevil?

I guess if you want to be snarky, the impossible situation would be to get Daredevil back into the top ten in sales each month.

But I digress,
Tom

Yes, DD: REBORN is Andy Diggle's last work on Daredevil. He had mentioned this on his formspring a few weeks ago and he also confirmed it again today on Twitter ("Starting work on my final DAREDEVIL issue today. *sniff*")

I wouldn't mind Jason Aaron taking over. I think his SCALPED work is some of the best writing out there.

Don't forget, Rucka had a not so great parting with DC, and has openly criticized them lately. I could see him taking a shot at this, and he would be perfect. Plus, he got his feet wet on an arc with Brubaker.

If they go with a lesser known/up and comer, I wouldn't mind them giving Jason Henderson a shot. His "Daughters of the Shadow" mini was very good.
I also like what Kieron Gillen has been doing. He seem to be able to write anything.
Joe Kelly has written DD before and seems to be getting better. I wouldn't mind seeing hime writing and Chris Bachalo on art- that would be a unique book.

I would love to see Matt Wagner take a shot, but it's not going to happen.

All of your ideas, especially Rucka, are fine by me. (Well I haven't read anything by Jason Henderson, but the rest of them...)

I think Kieron Gillen is being groomed to take over Uncanny X-Men. He's got a mini coming up, I believe. He's a possibility.

I forgot a few other writers that Marvel has around, too.

Greg Pak -- No feelings one way or the other...
Daniel Way -- No way. (Pardon the pun.)
Victor Gishler -- Not my cup of tea.
Jeff Parker -- Like Gillen, I think he could write anything.

Forgot about Parker. He would be a great choice as well.

Personally I would love Abnett and Lanning. I love their work, and having a book with a built in fanbase rather than starting from the ground up like they had to do in the cosmic marvel universe will bump their sales and let people see how awesome they really are.

I would be all for that if they could handle three books at the same time. Heroes, another cosmic book, and this one.
