SHADOWLAND


SHADOWLAND was a 5 issue mini-series, with the first issue making its debut on July 8, 2010. It involved characters from DAREDEVIL, as well as Iron Fist, Luke Cage, Elektra, Moon Knight, Ghost Rider, Wolverine and various other "street-level" characters.

Written by Andy Diggle, with artwork by Billy Tan, the series, which was billed as "The Battle For the Soul of New York", shipped alongside the main DAREDEVIL title in the summer. There were several one-shots and mini-series based on characters that appeared in SHADOWLAND, and all of these titles are listed below.

When the Hand sought out Daredevil to become their new leader, he plotted to use them as a force of good. When Bullseye destroyed a city block and killed 107 people in the process, Daredevil was pushed over the edge... and killed Bullseye. On that city block, Daredevil built his fortress of Shadowland.

As Daredevil's power grew, he became colder and brutal. Several heroes tried to intervene, only to find themselves under attack by the Hand. Master Izo contacted the heroes and told them Daredevil had been possessed by the Beast, the ancient demon and lord of the Hand. They regrouped to find a way to defeat Daredevil, and reclaim the city.

THE SNAKEROOT


The Snakeroot ninja clan made its debut in the "Fall From Grace" storyline which ran in Vol.1 #319-325. This arc is well-known for being the story that brought back Elektra into DAREDEVIL comics and also for the change to Daredevil's armoured costume. It was written by Dan Chichester with artwork by Scott McDaniel and Hector Collazo. The Snakeroot seemed to be a high ranking sect, which had influence in many of the dealings of the Hand.

The Snakeroot sect of the Hand was led by Lord Daito. He wanted to create a warrior; an assassin on the level of someone who used to be one of them... namely Elektra. Using information from a disgraced US army general, "TNT" Kenkoy, they found a top-secret virus called "About Face" that could be used to transform anyone afflicted. They then kidnapped SHIELD Agent John Garrett, who after the events of ELEKTRA: ASSASSIN, had Elektra's "dark essence" residing in his mind. The Snakeroot infused the essence into their warrior named Erynys. The "About Face" was going to be used to help the process. Stone, from the Chaste, and Elektra, came down from their mountain hideout to stop the process. Elektra had been living with the Chaste since her resurrection in DAREDEVIL Vol.1 #190. While battling the Snakeroot, Elektra killed Erynys, but caused the "dark essence" to return to her. The Snakeroot made their getaway, but now Elektra was not allowed to return to the Chaste because of her return to the dark side.

In the mini-series, ELEKTRA: ROOT OF EVIL, also by the same team of "Fall from Grace", the Snakeroot had to regroup as Lord Daito performed Seppuku because of his failure with Erynys. Daito had used the Snakeroot's ceremonial sword Sakki, which was now impure. Tekagi took over as leader of the Snakeroot. He had to cleanse the sword by killing three innocent people (a Nobel prize winner, a priest and an activist).

Since Elektra was now cast out of the Chaste, she had formed her own order of six. She learned of the Snakeroot's plans and sent her recruits to stop them. All the new recruits perished. Elektra went after the Snakeroot in vengeance. Elektra and Tekagi were left to battle alone in the end, with Elektra besting Tekagi by killing him with the Sakki sword. The Snakeroot was no more.

Until now, that is...

What connection the current Snakeroot has to the old remains to be seen in SHADOWLAND.

"Also, considering I'm a huge Daredevil fan, it's extremely exciting to be drawing the issues that are part of the Shadowland crossover."

JUNE 6, 2010 with Bill Rosemann & Jeff Parker

"When Luke goes to see what's up with Daredevil, he's going to find something that would be another game changer, something that could make things even worse."

MAY 17 & 26, 2010 with Zeb Wells, discussing SHADOWLAND: ELEKTRA

"Elektra isn't going to be fazed by anything Daredevil does that other heroes might consider going too far. If Daredevil's enemies are her enemies, her choice is easy."

MAY 17, 2010 with Stephen Wacker, discussing SHADOWLAND: ELEKTRA

"She's watched him go through so much the last few years and I think she fights the feelings from the past bubbling up. On the other hand, she has her own life and her own path to follow."

MAY 17, 2010 with Dan Slott, discussing SHADOWLAND: SPIDER-MAN

"There's a big conflict going on in Shadowland, a big struggle for power. And a lot of forces are mashalled up against one another. And one of Spider-Man's worst enemies, Mister Negative, who's the crime lord of Chinatown, sees this as the perfect opportunity to make a play against the forces of The Hand."

MAY 17, 2010 with Tom Brennan, discussing SHADOWLAND: SPIDER-MAN

"Daredevil's waging a battle for the soul of New York, a soul that Spider-Man represents better than most. Add on the close relationship Spidey has with Daredevil, and it's inevitable that he would get involved. New York is his home and he won't give it up without a fight."

MAY 17, 2010 with John Layman, discussing SHADOWLAND: BULLSEYE

"Bullseye actually finds himself in such a bad position he has to get some help from his friends," explains Layman. "And Bullseye does not have a lot of friends."

MAY 14 & 17, 2010 with Rob Williams, discussing SHADOWLAND: GHOST RIDER

"The job remit is payback on those most deserving, and in Shadowland, with Matt Murdock leading the Hand in a clean-up of New York City that's pretty much a coup, there [are] plenty of guilty souls out there who are very deserving."

MAY 14, 2010 with Dan Slott, discussing SHADOWLAND: SPIDER-MAN

"You're getting pure Spidey. He has some Peter Parker-y thoughts, but what you're really in for in this one-shot is a Spider-Man and Shang-Chi team-up, 'cause Shang-Chi is also part of the "Shadowland" event."
CBR

MAY 13, 2010 with Gregg Hurwitz, discussing SHADOWLAND: MOON KNIGHT

"This is going to be a story that really cuts to the heart of Moon Knight. There's a character called the Profile, and he's fascinated by Moon Knight. He's taken sort of an extracurricular interest in him. He knows something is off with Jake and he is the key to this puzzle," Hurwitz remarked. "So Daredevil and the Profile are going to work together and try to figure out a comprehensive plan on how to get and destroy Moon Knight."

MAY 12, 2010 with Jason Henderson, discussing SHADOWLAND: THE DAUGHTERS OF THE SHADOW

"The deal works this way: in exchange for Colleen taking her rightful place in the Hand, Daredevil will give her leave and resources to pursue her investigation. And those resources, of course, include her new team. Colleen has inherited leadership of something called 'The Nail.'"

MAY 10, 2010 with Antony Johnston, discussing SHADOWLAND: BLOOD ON THE STREETS

"When "Shadowland" was being planned, one of the decisions made was to do a bunch of one-shots and miniseries to tie in, as a way to focus on some peripheral characters and bring back other "street level" characters that we maybe hadn't seen in a while."

APRIL 27, 2010 with Antony Johnston

"Shadowland is a big, epic event-lots of action, a good look at the story from the perspectives of all the characters involved, real high-stakes stuff. The main DAREDEVIL title is going to focus more on the streets of Hell's Kitchen, how the supporting characters cope with the events, people like Foggy [Nelson], Dakota [North], Black Tarantula, and Detective Kurtz."

APRIL 26, 2010 with Andy Diggle

"Why would a league of assassins choose a leader who won't let them kill? Answering that question became the central spine of my arc. Things get pretty crazy. Once I realised Matt Murdock's the bad guy now, everything fell into place."
ComicRelated.com

APRIL 19, 2010 with Steve Wacker

"The area has become a protectorate of the Hand as Matt is trying to mold this international organization of assassins and criminals into a force for justice. And so far it's working; the streets of the Kitchen are safe for the people to walk through. Crime has all but disappeared."

"'With all the hardship Matt Murdock has been through in his life, why didn't he end up a bad guy?' And I think that question really gets to the core of Matt Murdock as a human being. Why didn't he become a bad guy? So I thought it would be really interesting to explore that question, and see what would happen if you pushed him. Tempted him."

APRIL 16, 2010 with Steve Wacker

"Editor Steve Wacker then appeared via video feed to finally announce Andy Diggle and Billy Tan's "Shadowland," a five-issue miniseries. He called the book "a battle for the streets of New York. You're going to see a ton of heroes from Spider-Man and Wolverine to Luke Cage...some are fighting to keep New York safe, and some are fighting to keep it unsafe due to Daredevil's takeover of the ninja organization The Hand, recently." He promised the series will drive the characters into compromising emotional territory, adding, "Seeing these heroes on different sides and interacting with regular people will show a side of them we haven't seen in a while."

CBR

APRIL 16, 2010 with Andy Diggle

"I'm writing Shadowland myself, and co-writing Daredevil with my old friend Antony Johnston. I tend to be rather slow and disorganized, whereas Antony's fast and disciplined, so we complement each other pretty well. There will also be various spin-off one-shots and minis featuring characters from the series, from some top-secret creative teams Marvel won't let me reveal quite yet."
