Daredevil seems to bring the best out in its writers; from Frank Miller and Ann Nocenti to Ed Brubaker and Mark Waid, the title has enjoyed several epic, career-defining runs in its history. It’s really been no different for Chip Zdarsky, who has worked with artists like Marco Checchetto and Manuel Garcia to tear down Matt Murdock’s life, create a new one for Elektra and, of course, help the Kingpin find new love.
All that comes to a head in November’s oversized Daredevil #36, which Marvel says is the last issue of the current run, but not Zdarsky’s final issue of Daredevil.
“I know writers like to say things like, ‘It’s all been building toward this!!’ but, really, it has,” Zdarsky told Marvel.com. “When I sat down to write issue one, I knew that this issue was waiting and that it was going to drastically alter the lives of the Daredevil cast. Issue 36 is NOT an ending, it’s a beginning.”
It’s a wedding issue, according to Marvel, which don’t always go as planned (see also: wrestling weddings): After a romance that’s blossomed over the last two years in DAREDEVIL, Mayor Wilson Fisk and Typhoid Mary are prepared to tie the knot! But in a fashion truly befitting The House of Ideas, calamity is right around the corner for the happy couple! Also discover who will be left standing as Daredevil: Matt Murdock or Electra Natchios?
It sounds like some sort of relaunch is coming, with Zdarsky still at the helm. Even more interesting is that Marvel gives us a date for when to expect an announcement, not only for Daredevil but for other projects as well:
Make sure to keep your eyes on Marvel’s social channels on Tuesday, August 31st as we celebrate Marvel’s Birthday by revealing the next chapter of Chip Zdarsky & Marco Checchetto’s run on DAREDEVIL along with additional new projects from your favorite creators that will shape the past, present and future of Marvel Comics!
So I’ll see you back here on Aug. 31.
