Mike Allred, the creator of Madman and co-creator of iZombie, will return to Marvel Comics in August with Daredevil #17, an issue that will feature three Eisner Award-winning creators (writer Mark Waid, Mike Allred and his wife Laura, the issue's colorist).
Described by Marvel's Senior Editor Stephen Wacker as "the issue Mike Allred was born to draw," the issue will bring the artist (whose fan-favorite run on X-Statix was recentliy collected in a huge hardcover) back to Marvel for the first time in years.
And, of course, there's no greater threat to the health and safety of New York City than...Stilt-Man? The kind of villain who is ready fodder for mockery, the character is as likely to be redeemed here, in a critically-beloved series by award-winning creators, as anywhere else.
Here's what Marvel has to say about the issue, officially:
“It’s the issue Mike Allred was born to draw” – Marvel Senior Editor, Stephen Wacker
