Mark Waid And Paolo Rivera To Relaunch Daredevil In July

The Marvel Big Shots campaign is looking at relaunching a series of relatively B-list characters, Moon Knight, Punisher, and Daredevil.

Brian Bendis and Alex Maleev on Moon Knight for May has already been announced.

Bleeding Cool reckons that the creative team for The Punisher #1, to be announced is Greg Rucka and Marco Checchetto, with Laura Martin on colours.

But what about Daredevil?

I’m told the creative team is Mark Waid and Paolo Rivera. Waid is one of the most respected comic book writers in the industry today, with an editorial background and a life steeped in the minutia of comics trivia. He was editor-in-chief for Boom! and wrote a number of books titled with adjectives beginning with I, Incredibles, Irredeemable and Incorruptible. He’s recently helped revive the CrossGen brand for Marvel working on Ruse, out today.

Paolo Rivera has worked on Mythos, Spider-Man, Daredevil and Fantastic Four for Marvel. Expect a lot of cheering from these announcements at C2E2.
