SPIDER-MANDATE: The Lowe-down on "Secret Wars," Tie-Ins and Stacey Lee
Brian Michael Bendis has debuted the first look at Bill Sienkiewicz’s interior art from Daredevil: End of Days, the long-awaited Marvel miniseries that teams the writer and artist with David Mack and Klaus Janson to tell the final story of the Man Without Fear.
Announced more than five years ago, the tale is set in the not-too-distant future, and begins with Daredevil’s murder. “It goes a little further than most of ‘The End’ stories,” Bendis told Comic Book Resources in 2007. “And we make it canon. This is in-continuity, not too dissimilar to how Dark Knight Returns became continuity through sheer force of will. So we put it out there and everybody jumped.”
Ahead of Comic-Con International, Marvel at last set an October debut for the miniseries, with Bendis explaining, “”Everyone who works on this book is working on several major comic book situations for Marvel and for other companies. So we decided to go this route. What we would like to see is this Daredevil all-star team, but to do that, you have to sit back and wait for everyone to [come together].”
Judging from that Sienkiewicz art, it’ll definitely be worth the wait.
