Marvel Comics has announced a new Daredevil series relaunch which will follow the climax of the Devil’s Reign event. The Eisner-nominated team of writer Chip Zdarsky and Marco Checchetto will return to tell new stories of Matt Murdock beginning in June following the end of Zdarsky’s Daredevil: Woman Without Fear Miniseries.
Zdarsky and Checchetto spoke during a press release, confirming the series will continue telling Matt Murdock and Elektra Natchios’ stories.
Zdarsky spoke a little more about what fans can expect, saying:
“Getting to write Daredevil and work with Marco is a career highlight. I’m just genuinely excited that we get to continue our epic story with this new issue one! Matt and Elektra have confronted their past mistakes with Devil’s Reign and Woman Without Fear, but can they atone for them together? This is the start of our fourth year on the title! And the plan for it is about as big a swing as we could possibly take. I’m super excited for readers to see where we’re taking our Daredevils!”
Checchetto added his thoughts, saying:
“It’s the first time that I’ve to draw the first issue of the same series twice. I could tell you it’s an issue like everyone else, now, but it’s not. Each time I’ve to draw a new script of Daredevil it’s a new experience. Chip keeps throwing at me new challenges and I’m not the type of artist to refuse them. How much more can we mess up with Matt Murdock’s life? Let’s see with this new Daredevil #1.”
