Mike Allred Jumps onto DAREDEVIL in August

How great is this? Too bad it's only one issue.

Everyone's digging Mark Waid's DAREDEVIL these days. Even other creators. Mike Allred, currently finishing up I, ZOMBIE and also known for (my favorite) MADMAN, wrote a 'fan letter' to Marvel. When it was lightly teased that we could possibly see Allred on the title, Daredevil and Allred fans let their voices be heard.

USA Today announced the details on this fabulous collaboration. Allred will take over for one one issue, #17, this August. Editor Stephen Wacker stated that this issue will be part of the "ongoing Daredevil soap opera" but will also stand on its own.

Waid and Allred are both ecstatic to be working with each other for this issue. Wacker also said that Allred will be drawing lots of Daredevil in the issue along with the rest of the characters.

Look, I've got Mike for 20 pages — I want to see him draw as much of our cast as possible.

It may be only one issue but adding Allred to other great artists such as Paolo Rivera, Chris Samnee and Marcos Martin is making this the best looking (and well-written) volume of Daredevil we've ever seen.

FAN-FRICKING-TASTIC!!! I sent an email to Marvel asking (begging really) for Mr. Allred do draw DD after he posted a letter on the Daredevil letters page. I also asked to get MADMAN in there as well...Hopefully there is an appearance!!!

I'm personally not hating the series since I'm not reading it, I've just seen some long time fans not liking it.

@Billy Batson: truth.

Since it's a he's writing only one issue, it'll be even more special. Hoping their'll be lots of variant covers drawn by Allred.

i already like this series with waid on it...so this just makes it all the better..even if it is just one issue. and if the issue is bad well waid will be back on after :)

win/win.

Oh boy...this is...yes! That's all I can say, folk.

Posted by Donovan Montgomery

OH yea, I'm also impressed it made it into USA Today, That's saying something about both DD and Allred.

I was hoping to pick up on a few Allred comics soon, but now he is working on a title that is already in my pull list. Nice.

This!

I loved when other Marvel characters popped up in X-Statix. His stuff in the Thor God-Sized special a couple years back was awesome too. Definitely picking this one up.

I'd actually get this issue JUST for the sake of Allred. Awesome stuff!
