Another big announcement from Mondo Marvel, the confirmation of Shadowland, a Daredevil family event by Andy Diggle and Billy Tan!
We’ve been speculating on Shadowland for a while, but Marvel has finally revealed some solid information about the project. The event will be the first of the family style events Marvel has decided to switch to following Siege, crossing over within a small family of books, and including characters such as Daredevil, Moon Knight, Luke Cage, Thunderbolts, Spider-Man and more. The event is supposed to finally bring Daredevil front and center in Marvel Continuity.
Check out an interview with writer Andy Diggle a tthe source link below. Here’s a snippet:
Matt Murdock’s personal life has never exactly been a bed of roses, but recent events have taken their toll. We’ve seen him beaten down and pick himself back up again in the past, as when Kingpin destroyed his life in "Born Again" — but this time it’s different. This time it isn’t just the work of a lone villain. This time, everything Matt believes in has been undermined. The justice system itself, the cornerstone of his chosen profession, has been turned on its head by the appointment of Norman Osborn to run H.A.M.M.E.R. They say all it takes for evil to prevail is that good men stand by and do nothing, and recent events have forced Matt to acknowledge the fact that the world has gone to hell while he’s been wrapped up with his own little problems. So now he’s going to do something about it. He’s forced to become a player in the wider Marvel universe — at long last. He’s always been willing to work outside the system as Daredevil… but now, he’s setting up a whole new system. From now on, Daredevil’s making his own rules.
