by Tony Thornley
Daredevil is one of the Marvel series that always seems to be around. Next month, the series celebrates 650 issues as the creative team welcomes legendary guest creators.
The series just launched its latest volume chronicling the adventures of Matt Murdock and Elektra Natchios. In August’s Daredevil #2, the series hits the huge milestone that few other characters have seen. To celebrate, main series creators Chip Zdarsky & Marco Checchetto welcomes some of the most legendary artists in the Man without Fear’s history- including Rafael DeLatorre, Alex Maleev, Paul Azaceta, Phil Noto, Chris Samnee, Klaus Janson, and Mike Hawthorne.
From Marvel’s press release- In the aftermath of Devil’s Reign, everything it has ever meant to be Daredevil has changed. Thanks to Elektra and her newfound role as the Woman Without Fear, Daredevil is more ambitious than EVER. With a who’s-who of creators from across the fabled character’s history (and some can’t-miss surprises along the way), this oversized epic will kick off the next year of Chip Zdarsky and Marco Checchetto’s landmark run on Daredevil off in explosive style!
“It’s not often that a comic gets to issue two these days , so … oh wait, it’s issue 650?! Well in that case I’m over the moon that we get to celebrate with so many legendary Daredevil creators!” Zdarsky said. “Daredevil is a title that has had so many amazing runs that it wouldn’t feel right to have an anniversary issue without inviting the people who made the book so special for so many years.”
Be sure to pick up the landmark issue when it hits stands in August and watch for news of other creators joining the creative line-up!
