First Look: DAREDEVIL - END OF DAYS #1

What is Daredevil's biggest secret? Looks like we're all about to find out.

For months now we've been enjoying the wonderful DAREDEVIL series written by Mark Waid. Waid has continued to prove what a great writer he is and what a good grasp he has on Matt Murdock. Waid has also been joined by numerous superb artists on the series.

You may recall there was another fine gentleman that wrote really groovy Daredevil stories as well. Brian Michael Bendis is returning to Daredevil and he's bringing in a bunch of great artists as well. Check out this first look of the first issue coming next month.

Marvel is pleased to present your first look at Daredevil: End of Days #1, from the creative tour de force of Brian Michael Bendis, David Mack, Klaus Janson, Bill Sienkiewicz and Alex Maleev! When Matt Murdock’s greatest secret remains a mystery – there is only one man who can uncover it, investigative reporter Ben Urich! Witness the end of the Man Without Fear this October in Daredevil: End Of Days #1!

bendis does so many 2 page spreads. gets on my nerves sometimes

Posted by Imagine_Man15

I'm genuinely excited about this. Bendis isn't my favorite writer by any means... but I'm excited.

So does this mean Waid is leaving DD? And based on the art it looks like the stories are going back to being darker. So does this mean it will be going back to that old darker DD? Because I don't know if I want that.

Same.

Also, why does Marvel give DD so much sh*t, lol?!

@ArtisticNeedham: I think this is a stand alone future what if for DD.. Bendis talked about it for a long time I'm pretty sure it's a mini

Edited by ArtisticNeedham

@aaunderoath: Thanks. I like the new direction and I thought it was getting good sales so it seemed strange to suddenly switch like this.

Back when Marvel was doing all those "The End" stories and they were all so dark and depressing I thought it might be interesting if DD's The End story was happy, he lived to a ripe old age and maybe even got married and had kids.

He can see all along. There, here is the big secret...

Posted by Green ankh

he really is Ben Affleck I love KLAUS JANSON & BILL SIENKIEWICZ but i dont know if ill get this.

Posted by LiveForever

Mark Waid isn't going anywhere, this is just a miniseries.

Posted by htb106

Not extremely keen on the art, Like the cover though.

Why do all of Marvel's previews have no words.

Posted by xAnimosity

Im not a Bendis fan but I am so excited for this. Anything with Daredevil gets me excited. And the covers are beautiful.I wonder how this will play out, since Bendis said this is canon.

Am I the only one who thinks that interior art is God awful? Honestly, that looks like all those late 80's / early 90's books that I never go back and read anymore because the art is so offensive to the eyes. I would take Leifeld over that, and that is saying a great deal.

Posted by Super_SoldierXII

Irregardless of the writing, I'm not paying my hard earned money for art that looks like scribblings in a toddler's notebook.

Worst art I've come across in quite a while.

Makes me feel I should be looking for a career as an artist at Marvel. Because yes, I could do better.

Posted by slvr4surfer

So this is a "What if Daredevil died?" ?

Huh, I really like it. To each his own I guess.

It's too soon for this. Shadowland was just what a year or two ago? Let'em breathe....

I hate Milla Donavon

Posted by The Mighty Monarch

Is this going to be in continuity or not?

Posted by evilvegeta74

@CaioTrubat: Actually that's the only thing that crossed my mind, he really can see.

Posted by longbowhunter

I've been waiting a lifetime for this to come out. At $3.99 I think I'll wait for it to be collected though.

Posted by TDK_1997

The artwork is terrible.

Posted by RedOwl_1

Interesting, is just a miniseries, right? and if it is, Is it on continuity?

I didn't mind her too much, but it was obvious throughout every issue she ever appeared in that she was never gonna be a love interest as memorable as Karen Page, Black Widow, or Elektra. I really wish they woulda ran with the whole Dakota North angle. She would've been an awesome girl for Matt.

Dakota North was awsome

Very busy artwork. Not really my flavour at all.

Posted by venomoushatred1001

Wow. Daredevil is getting beat up by some guy in a Bullseye costume...

Posted by Pbott

Thank god real DD is coming back, I dont get all the buz Waids run has been getting. Bendis and Brubakers runs were so much better.

Posted by straightedgejoe

i'm so exited! and i just can't hide it!

Posted by RedheadedAtrocitus

Wow this looks great to me. That art is just wonderful!

Posted by Donovan Montgomery

Why? Why? Why? I really love DD but this is my least favorite DD writer and some pretty nasty art (sorry artists involved) it looks like I'll be waiting for the trade to hit the discount bins before I pick it up :( 
 
@Bendis: Is this continuity like Miller's Dark Knight Returns is continuity?

Posted by TheMess1428

Does this have anything to do with the ongoing Daredevil title?

Posted by The Mast

This is not canon.

Posted by clemj

is it me or bullseye is kicking his ass violently in the first panel?

My dark DD has returned.

Posted by JonSmith

His big secret is: He's secretly a flawed clone of Spider-Man, created by the Jackal, and gone WAY WRONG. Whereas Kaine got enhanced Spider-Powers, Daredevil got weaker versions of Spidey's agility, and strength, with his Spider-sense tuned throughout his other senses, creating a sort of radar. His memory all but destroyed, he remembered only losing someone he loved, and upon running across Battlin' Jack Murdock's grave, along with the grave of his son, Matt, who'd apparently died after a terrible radioactive accident, the confused clone assumed the son's identity, creating a past for himself and seeking out details to fill it, eventually piecing together what happened to Battlin' Jack at the Kingpin's hands. So it all began!
