Bendis, Sienkewicz, Janson, Mack and Maleev team up to tell the last Daredevil tale
The word is out: Marvel Comics is poised to reveal the final chapter in the story of the Man Without Fear.
"This isn't just a 'What If'," points out writer Brian Michael Bendis. "This IS how the story of Daredevil WILL end."
DAREDEVIL: END OF DAYS is set to rock both the crimson-clad hero's world as well as his legion of fans. The story drives a serious one-two punch to the gut, weaving multiple elements of Daredevil's life and career into an apocalyptic adventure that cannot be missed.
The creative team on DAREDEVIL: END OF DAYS is one for the record books. Writer Brian Michael Bendis and writer/artist David Mack reunite on the character for perhaps what may prove to be both Matt Murdock's and their finest hour. Bendis and Mack have handled the Man Without Fear's adventures both singly and as a team, and END OF DAYS will mark another exciting collaboration for the two friends. Visuals will be delivered by legendary artists Klaus Janson, Bill Sienkewicz and Alex Maleev.
Bendis first swung through the dark, foreboding world of Daredevil in 2001 and was soon garnering comparisons to Frank Miller's legendary run of the 1980s. This culminated in two Eisner Awards for the writer in 2003. Mack's creator-owned "Kabuki" series led him to put his own personal and well-received stamp on Daredevil, with storylines like "Parts of a Hole" and "Echo: Vision Quest."
Mack puts a not-to-subtle point on what makes the event tick for him. "I get to return to writing a character that I read and loved as a kid. My first work for Marvel was as the writer for DAREDEVIL and it's a joy to return to this character that I have such love and passion for."
"I also get to collaborate with some of the best creators in comics," Mack continues. "Creators that have brought so much magic to the history of Daredevil. And if that wasn't already a dream come true, the energy on this project between us all is incredible. The absolute excitement that these creators are bringing to END OF DAYS is electric and they are really putting everything into it. They are performing at the top of their game."
Mack's writing partner Bendis also has a point to stress about the book's mechanics. "Let's not forget to shine a spotlight on David Mack's return to mainstream comics with END OF DAYS. I'm thrilled to be part of it. David and I have been working together since, literally, our first day in comics. This is a really big deal for us, and like those early days, this project has brought out the best in each other."
