Official Press Release

Last month Marvel offered its first MUST HAVES collection of consecutive

issues from one title (VENOM - ULTIMATE SPIDER-MAN #33-36), and comic shops

responded with record orders. Hearing its fans and retailer partners loud

and clear, this month Marvel is pleased to offer the latest low-cost Must

Haves compilation, MARVEL MUST HAVES: DAREDEVIL (JAN035084 D), collecting

DAREDEVIL #41-43, the first three chapters of the current

critically-acclaimed "LOWLIFE" story arc.

"Response to the 25-cent DAREDEVIL #41 has been tremendous, with people

checking the issue out because of the attention generated by the movie and

the USA TODAY review, and then discovering the work of writer Brian Bendis

and artist Alex Maleev," said Editor-in-Chief Joe Quesada. "Issue-in,

issue-out, DAREDEVIL is one of the best comic books on the stands of any

genre. MARVEL MUST HAVES: DAREDEVIL was created to give new readers just

catching on to that fact an opportunity to continue with the story started

in issue #41, and with the series as it heads to its next big story arc,


"I'm so excited about this collection because ever since we announced Matt

Murdock would be outted as Daredevil by the tabloids, people kept waiting

for the trick finish or easy way out," added Brian Bendis. "What these

issues illustrate is that we have no intention of doing anything like that,

so I'm thrilled that people are looking for them and want to continuing

following the story!"

The 80-page MARVEL MUST-HAVE: DAREDEVIL (JAN035084 D) is available for order

immediately from Diamond and has an on-sale date of 3/19 and a cover price

of $3.99. DAREDEVIL #45, concluding the "LOWLIFE" storyline, goes on sale

3/26 and has a Final Order Cut-off (OIC) date of Thursday, 3/6.
