Marvel Comics is all set to bring one of its most beloved series to an end. Marvel confirmed on Monday that Daredevil will end with its 36th issue.
The issue sees Wilson Fisk, the Kingpin of Crime, and Typhoid Mary tie a knot. But wedding is disrupted later. Zdarsky is joined by Manuel Garcia on this final issue of the series and the decision is pending as to who will carry the Daredevil name going forward, Matt Murdock or Elektra Natchios.
Marvel Comics released a statement saying, “Over the last two years, superstar writer Chip Zdarsky has teamed up with artists such as Marco Checchetto, Manuel Garcia, and more to make DAREDEVIL one of the hottest books on the stands! Throughout his groundbreaking work on the character, Zdarsky has delivered the most surprising era of Daredevil yet, including fascinating developments like Matt Murdock’s imprisonment, Kingpin and Typhoid Mary’s dangerous new relationship, and of course, Elektra taking over the mantle of Daredevil. And after 36 hard-hitting issues, Daredevil’s legacy as the protector of Hell’s Kitchen will never be the same. This November, Zdarsky’s legendary run will reach its climax in an explosive final issue, but his acclaimed Daredevil saga is far from over…”
In the press release, Zdarsky says, “I know writers like to say things like “it’s all been building toward this!!” but, really, it has,” Zdarsky said. “When I sat down to write issue one, I knew that this issue was waiting and that it was going to drastically alter the lives of the Daredevil cast. Issue 36 is NOT an ending, it’s a beginning.”
Marvel has given their word that the “must-have special” Daredevil #38 “will have all the revelations fans have been waiting for” when it releases on 17 November.
Daredevil #36 goes on sale on 11 November. It is written by Chip Zdarsky, manuel Garcia has provided the artowork and the cover has been designed by Marco Checccetto.
