During his weekly, MyCup o’ Joe!, Marvel EIC Joe Quesada confirmed that Andy Diggle will indeed take over the writing duties of Daredevil beginning with issue #501, which is expected to be released late summer/early fall.
I think Andy really showed us something when he took over Thunderbolts.
He has a certain feel, a certain â€œbiteâ€ to his stories, and he just writes tremendous, tremendous villains.
He writes mean characters! [laughs]And thereâ€™s something there that resonated with all of us in editorial, where we just thought he could write the piss out of Daredevil.
Check out more of Joe’s comments about Diggle, and the history of Daredevil (and more), at the MySpace Comic Books page.
