Along with Marcos Martin, Paulo Rivera, Chris Samnee and more, Mark Waid relaunched Daredevil a few years ago, only for the book to become a critical darling, an award getter and one of the few books Marvel reader felt obliged to share with non-comics readers. It was clever, witty, concise, pushing back against the decompression of comics, and revitalising the character for many.
And now, it seems, someone else is going to get the chance. From today’s letters pages;
The end of Daredevil in February? Here’s the solicit for January…

• Daredevil pulls his allies together to make an all-out assault on the Sons of the Serpent before they can infest the rest of the nation–but he’s about to find out just how blind justice can be!
• PLUS…You’ve demanded it! An appearance by Elektra that sets the stage for a huge change in Matt’s life!
