Elektra, Bullseye and Kingpin Will Be 'Running with the Devil' in February

Following the success of “Daredevil,” “Jessica Jones” and “Luke Cage” on Netflix, Marvel Comics will capitalize on the popularity of its street-level heroes with its “Running with the Devil” initiative, a new story beginning in February in “Daredevil” #17, before expanding in a trio of “Kingpin,” “Bullseye” and “Elektra” number ones.

In "Daredevil," writer Charles Soule and artist Ron Garney will address the question dangling over the head of the Man Without Fear: How did Matt Murdock regain his secret identity.

“Fans are going to love what we have in store for our street-level superstars in 2017,” Editor-in-Chief Axel Alonso said in a statement. “We’re taking Daredevil and some of the characters in his orbit, sending them off in different directions for some brand-new stories from rising stars in the comics industry.”
