Earlier this month, an editorial answer in the “Daredevil” #34 letter column and a tweeted cover by current “Daredevil” artist Chris Samnee indicated that the Eisner Award-winning series was nearing its end, and a new interview on Marvel.com verifies that speculation.
The digital comic serves as the coda for Waid’s time with Matt Murdock and company, wrapping up the epic story he’s been telling in the monthly “Daredevil” title. As part of his farewell to the character, he and his “Insufferable” partner Krause are also having ol’ hornhead bid adieu to his traditional stomping ground in New York City’s Hell’s Kitchen for a cross-country adventure.
“Up until now, every time we’ve taken Matt out of New York, it’s been in service of awful, awful things,” Waid told Marvel.com. “This feels more like the beginning of a grand journey. Which does not discount the eventuality of awful, awful things, of course; no one wants to read a Daredevil story where everything goes smoothly for him.
“Matt’s beginning a whole new chapter in his life following the events of ‘Daredevil’ #36,” Waid continued. “He’s excited but apprehensive at the same time”
“Daredevil: Road Warrior” debuts in February following the release of “Daredevil” #36.
