0

Marvel Comics is relaunching Daredevil again following the “Devil’s Reign” story arc with a new creative team. Matt Murdock is now working with on-again-off-again girlfriend Elektra Natchios to keep the New York section of Hell’s Kitchen safe from The Hand, now led by the Punisher.

“Writer Chip Zdarsky and artist Marco Checchetto’s Eisner-nominated work on DAREDEVIL is reborn in a brand-new run kicking off on July 13,” Marvel said on their website. “Taking place in the aftermath of DEVIL’S REIGN, DAREDEVIL #1 will spotlight both Matt Murdock and Elektra Natchios and their vastly different journeys as Daredevil. Their ambitions and bold choices as heroes will transform Hell’s Kitchen and have a major impact on the Marvel Universe at large.”

“Right now, fans can get a peek at some of what they’ll be up against in new promotional artwork by Paulo Siqueira.” they added. “The joint pieces tease both Daredevil’s biggest challenges for the next year, including confrontations with the Avengers and the Punisher-led Hand, as well as further exploration of Luke Cage’s new role as mayor of New York City. In addition, DAREDEVIL #1 will come out the gate with a shocking reveal that ties back to Zdarsky’s earliest stories on the title and brings thrilling new insights to key moments in Daredevil history.”

Marvel also released the first look at the cover of the new series:

This is not the first time Marvel Comics has rebooted Daredevil. This will be the seventh relaunch and the eighth if you include the Ultimate Universe which saw Matt Murdock get killed in a flood caused by Magneto.
