Mike Allred – From Fan to Artist on ‘Daredevil’ #17

USA Today revealed that Madman and iZombie artist Mike Allred is jumping aboard Mark Waid’s wonderful run Daredevil with issue #17.

In a recent issue of the series, which has previously been drawn by Marcos Martin, Paolo Manuel Rivera and Chris Samnee, Allred professed his love for the title by saying:

I would LOVE to do a guest spot if you’d be into my humble scratchings.

To which Daredevil editor Steve Wacker replied:

OF COURSE YOU CAN DRAW SOME DAREDEVIL!

And there you have it. Dreams do come true, kiddies!

Here’s a look at USA Today’s the full cover of Daredevil #17

Allred’s retro, 60’s style will perfectly fit the feel of the world that Waid and co. have created for Matt Murdock, Foggy Nelson and the rest of the gang.

This will be good.
