Daredevil/Punisher Crossover Coming in May

Marvel has announced a new Daredevil/Punisher comic book series, just as the two are about to cross paths in the "Daredevil" Netflix series this spring.

Here's the solicitation text for the first issue, courtesy of Newsarama: "A simple change of venues for one of Matt Murdock's cases becomes more complicated when THE PUNISHER attempts to send the defendant away...permanently!," reads the issue's solicitation. "If DAREDEVIL and BLINDSPOT want to get this mobster his day in court, it will take every ounce of wit and wile they have. All Frank needs to get what he wants is a bullet. The race is on!"

No creative team has been announced for the book, but Marvel debuted a cover for the first issue, illustrated by Reilly Brown.

"Daredevil/Punisher" #1 hits stands on May 4.
