COMICS: Marvel To End Mark Waid's Eisner Award Winning DAREDEVIL With Issue #36
Marvel's Editor-in-Chief Axel Alonso is clearly determined to make sure none of their comic books ever reach their 50th issue as The Man Without Fear looks set to be the latest character to receive an unnecessary relaunch as part of the
money grabbing "Marvel NOW!" initiative. Read on for details!
Daredevil artist Chris Samnee has confirmed via Twitter that February's issue #36 of the critically acclaimed series will be the last. He also provided the cover for that comic, and this follows editor Steve Wacker's cryptic comments in the latest letter page of the series in which he mention a "big two-part finale to this era of Daredevil." It seems likely now that the series will be relaunched with a new #1, making it understandable as to why so many fans find themselves infuriated by Marvel's habit of renumbering their books ever 18 - 24 months. While the short-lived sales boost a new #1 (and higher $3.99 price tag) may make Marvel happy, the fact that not a single Marvel title is now numbered in the triple digits is a disappointment to those who respect their 50 years of publishing history. A silver lining here though is the fact that the current creative team doesn't appear to be going anywhere. "They may or may not involve a drastic shift in Matt Murdock's career and lifestyle," writer Mark Waid said of what 2014 holds in story for Daredevil in a recent interview. "But we do know this one thing for sure: the Waid/Samnee/Rodriguez/Caramagna team isn't going anywhere, and we're striving for new heights!"
