On sale this week from Marvel Comics
is Daredevil #3
, continuing Mark Waid
and Paolo Rivera's
compelling new take on the sonar-guided hero of Hell's Kitchen. The new issue finds Matt Murdock out of a job and Daredevil squaring off against Klaw
, the Jack Kirby & Stan Lee villain made of solid sound. Check out a preview after the cut.
Although just two issues of Daredevil
have been released so far, it seems very likely that the relaunched Marvel Comics series about a blind superhero lawyer will find itself on nearly everybody's best-of lists at the end of the year. Writer Mark Waid's fairly radical reinvention of Matt Murdock from a tortured noir figure into a bright but sophisticated superhero has endeared the new series to many (like our own Chris Sims, who spoke with Waid about it on CA's War Rocket Ajax podcast
), the phenomenal artwork and storytelling of Paolo Rivera also plays an enormous role in the success of Daredevil
-- a success that's about to be compounded with the arrival of Marcos Martin. A fan-favorite for his work on Amazing Spider-Man
and Batgirl: Year One
, among others, Martin will alternate storylines with Rivera, with whom he shares a brilliant talent for crisp, dynamic pages that are as fun as they are dramatic.
Marcos Martin hits Daredevil #4 in September, and you can check out some unlettered pages right here
. But for now, enjoy this preview of Daredevil #3 by Mark Waid and Paolo Rivera, on sale this week in finer comics shops
everywhere or online from retailers like Things From Another World.
No longer allowed to practice law in the courts, Matt Murdock finds a whole new way to help innocent men and women in desperate need of courtroom justice--and we guarantee it will surprise you! Daredevil's new life and new status quo begins here--and if Klaw gets his way, it'll end here, too!
