Marvel is gearing up for the return of Daredevil who will be making a comeback with the release of Daredevil #1, set to hit stores on July 20th. Marvel hosted a live blog earlier today featuring the series' new writer, Mark Waid, who had plenty to say about how he will be breathing new life to the character in an exciting new way. As with all the Marvel live blogs, the questions were heavily moderated (none of our questions were answered).
However what we did get was a little bit of perspective on what Waid will be delivering in this new series in addition to some absolutely breathtaking interior and cover art from artists Marcos Martin and Paolo Rivera.== TEASER ==
We already know that Daredevil will not only be returning to his self titled series, but he'll also be appearing on the New Avengers roster starting this fall written by Brian Michael Bendis. Waid also hinted that we may be seeing other characters appear in the series, a notion which is reinforced with the appearance of Captain America on the cover to the series' second issue.
One of the most exciting things to come out of the Marvel live blog (aside from the phenomenal art work) are Waid's plans to introduce a whole slew of different villains that will be going up against Murdock in this brand new series.
"Dakota North is out there," said Waid, "We have a new Assistant District Attorney who I love. As far as the villains go, I think we've played out ninjas and the Kingpin plenty for the time being. Let's start mixing it up with villains that we're not used to seeing in Daredevil."
With the possibility of new villains being introduced in Daredevil's new series, how can you help but be excited! Are you looking forward to the relaunch of the Daredevil series and do you plan on picking it up? Check out the awesome new images revealed in the live blog today and let us know what you think of the upcoming book written by Mark Waid with art from Marcos Martin and Paolo Rivera!
