We've been stoked for the Mike Allred and Laura Allred
illustrated Daredevil #17
since the issue's cover was teased back in May
, and now Marvel has revealed some preview pages that make the issue even more exciting. Why? Because Stilt-Man
, that's why. Well... okay, that's not the biggest reason - the book's celebrated creative team is, and deservedly so. Set for an August 15 release, Daredevil
#17 arrives in stores and digitally on ComiXology just about a month after series writer Mark Waid
and colorist Laura Allred took home multiple Eisner Awards
during San Diego Comic-Con. Stilt-Man hasn't won an Eisner, but as Daredevil's arguably goofiest villain, he has certainly won the collective hearts of fandom over the years.
From Marvel's official press release:
Prepare for non-stop action as not one, not two, but THREE, Eisner Award winning creators present your first look at Daredevil #17! Courtesy of Mark Waid and special guest artist Michael Allred & colorist Laura Allred, this pulse-pounding adventure pits the Man Without Fear against an old foe...Stilt-Man! Can Daredevil make it out of this grudge match in one piece? Find out in Daredevil #17, hitting comic shops everywhere, the Marvel Comics app, and Marvel Digital Comic Shop this August.
