A New Daredevil #1 by Saladin Ahmed and Aaron Kuder for September

Saladin Ahmed and Aaron Kuder as the new Daredevil #1 creative team for Marvel Comics from September 2023.

Earlier this week, after running the Marvel August 2023 solicits way early, Bleeding Cool broke the news that Chip Zdarsky and Marco Checchetto's run on Daredevil would be coming to an end with #14 in August. But also that a new Daredevil volume (wight at this count) would be starting in September. And now Marvel has released those details, with Saladin Ahmed and Aaron Kuder as the new Daredevil #1 creative team. And pushing the new This Week In Marvel podcast with Chip talking to Saladin about the handover – a plan we also reported on a while back as well.

Daredevil #1 For September

On the podcast, the DAREDEVIL writers discussed their respective runs, with the final issue of Zdarsky's run on sale in August leading right into the new DAREDEVIL #1 the following month. In the upcoming series, Ahmed and Kuder are ready to take Matt Murdock on a knockout of an adventure! Where does Elektra fit into all of this? What is the future of Hell's Kitchen? Romance! Intrigue! And, of course, action! All delivered in the Mighty Marvel Manner!

On writing the new book, Ahmed says, "I wanted to only take this job on if I felt like I had a new, unique take on Matt and on Hell's Kitchen. And so that's at the center of this… him and his world, but it's the Marvel Universe. What I've really enjoyed in talking with other editors, other offices, is finding ways through these first couple of arcs we have planned to keep this centered on Matt, keep this centered on his people, in his world, but to bring (in a very organic and surprising fun way) some familiar Marvel figures that I think are going to blow people's mind when they pop up on the page!"

When asked what he will miss the most about writing DAREDEVIL, Zdarsky said, "Working with Marco [Checchetto], honestly, and Matt Wilson on colors. It was such a joy having those pages come in almost every day. It feels like the right time to leave. You know, when you finish the story, it's kind of when you should get off the stage. But it's my longest run on anything in comics, and it will probably end up being my longest running anything in comics because of the kind of character that you just want to hold onto for as long as you can."
