Daredevil's Chip Zdarsky Announces End of Run With Marco Checchetto

It looks like the fan-favorite run of Daredevil by Chip Zdarsky and Marco Checchetto is nearing its endpoint. The celebrated writer (and winner of ComicBook.com's 2022 Golden Issue Award for Best Writer) and artist launched a new volume of Daredevil back in February 2019, and the past three years have seen the Devil of Hell's Kitchen put through the wringer. Readers have seen Wilson Fisk's rise and fall as Mayor of New York City, an evolution in Daredevil and Elektra's relationship, the Devil's Reign event, and much more. Now, we have an idea of when the years-long story will reach its conclusion.

Chip Zdarsky shared an image of Daredevil's grey, ash-ridden mask, with the phrase, "This Is What God Has Done" found at the top. The bottom states, "The Saga Ends August 2023." No other information was provided, but fans should expect a resolution to some of the ongoing storylines, including the feud between Daredevil's Fist versus The Punisher and The Hand, and Daredevil and Elektra's marriage.
