‘Daredevil’ Reborn, Renewed and Resurrected in July [Preview]
On sale in July is the first issue of the all-new Daredevil series from Marvel Comics. Written by Captain America: Man Out of Time’s Mark Waid with artwork by the incredible Paolo Rivera and Marcos Martin, Daredevil promises to be a heroic reinvigoration of the blind vigilante following a decade spent almost exclusively in noir territory. Marvel’s released an advance preview of Daredevil #1 that you can check out after the cut, including a variant cover by Neal Adams.
First announced at C2E2 in March, the new Daredevil marks a major changing of the guard for the Man Without Fear. In contrast to the work of creators Brian Michael Bendis & Alex Maleev, Ed Brubaker & Michael Lark, and Andy Diggle & Antony Johnston, all of whom depicted Daredevil as a particularly tortured figure in an especially dark setting, Mark Waid is known for his more reverent approach to classic superhero characters and their worlds. Marvel’s promotional material suggests that Matt Murdock’s grim past will inform the changes the character goes through in Waid and Rivera & Martin’s new series, which will also see the introduction of new villains and a new supporting cast.

THIS SUMMER, THE DEVIL IS REBORN. RENEWED. RESSURECTED.
With new enemies, new friends…and that same old “grinnin’ in the face of hell” attitude, The Man Without Fear is back in a double-sized first issue and leading with his face! Mark Waid (AMAZING SPIDER-MAN, Irredeemable, RUSE) joins neo-legendary artists Paolo Rivera and Marcos Martin for a new spin on Daredevil that will leave you gasping for air. Having turned his world upside over the past several years, Matt Murdock realizes that justice may not be blind to his past and villains may not be the only ones looking for answers. Bring it on. If Matt Murdock could see what he was doing…he’d be terrified.
