Celebrate 60 years of Daredevil next month

Marvel’s hero of Hell’s Kitchen turns 60, and Daredevil will be celebrating in giant-sized fashion with April’s issue.


One of Marvel Comics’ most legendary heroes, Daredevil has been around for a long time. It’s been 60 years since Matt Murdock first donned the horns and took up his billy clubs to patrol the streets of NYC’s Hell’s Kitchen neighborhood, courtesy of the team of Stan Lee and Bill Everett.

Since that time, the character has been through a heck of a lot. Multiple revisions, updatings aplenty, and a few legendary runs by famed artists and writers all dot his past. And though there’s a main story from Saladin Ahmed and Aaron Kuder included, Marvel is looking to revisit a few key moments from that history in the current run’s Daredevil #8.

Landing next month, the issue will play host to five different tales of heroic devilry, along with a “Daily Bugle” funny, and a whole mess of variant covers.

  • Ahmed teams up with rising star Tommaso Bianchi (Alien: Black, White & Blood) showcase why Elektra is truly a woman without fear as she single-handedly goes up against a whole army of the Heat on a daring rescue mission! 
  • Return to the 80s with visionary Daredevil scribe Ann Nocenti and acclaimed Marvel artist Stefano Rafaelle as they present a vintage flashback adventure of Daredevil taking down Turk and his fellow mobsters within the confines of a steamy bath house.
  • Daredevil: Gang War writer Erica Schultz and Marvel’s Stormbreaker artist Jan Bazaldua spotlight Elektra’s current role as mentor to Alice, her young ward from Chip Zdarsky’s Eisner-nominated run!
  • Women of Marvel writer Elsa Sjunnerson and artist Erica Koda show how Matt Murdock inspires generations—both in and out of costume!
  • Daredevil: Black Armor writer D.G. Chichester and superstar artist Ken Lashley bring you a never-before-told showdown between Daredevil and the Punisher set during Chichester’s landmark ‘90s run. 
  • And Ty Templeton delivers more of his iconic Daily Bugle funnies!
