[ENGLISH] Top Cow is proud to announce their latest crossover one-shot with Marvel Comics in The Magdalena/Daredevil. The supernatural one-shot is scheduled for release in February 2008. The Magdalena/Daredevil is possibly the most natural of the crossover events to date with these two characters both steeped in Catholicism crossing paths for the first time. Written and drawn by The Darkness scribe Phil Hester (Green Arrow, Superman Confidential) and Ande Parks (Green Arrow, Superman Confidential), the crossover issue brings together the Catholic Church’s holy warrior and Daredevil, the Man Without Fear from Hell’s Kitchen. When a demon seeks revenge on the Church’s past transgressions only The Magdalena and Daredevil stand in his way.
« I can point to Frank Miller’s run on Daredevil as one of the things that crystallized my decision to become a cartoonist. To follow in Frank’s footsteps for even 22 pages is a thrill, » said Phil Hester, « Magdalena is poised for a very bright and busy future, and hopefully this crossover will be a nice appetizer for her spotlight season in the Top Cow universe. A crossover between a soldier nun and a troubled Catholic boy who grew up to wear a devil suit and beat up bad guys is a no brainer. I won’t say I’ve been saving myself for the right project to both write and draw, but when this one became available I knew I had to handle both chores. »
The Magdalena/Daredevil will feature a painted cover by Hester and Stjepan Sejic (First Born, Witchblade) and carry an SRP of $3.99. Additional information regarding The Magdalena can be found at www.topcow.com.
