Kingpin is back and is now the mayor of New York. Daredevil and Kingpin are a perfect pair and should always factor in each other’s stories. Kingpin hasn’t had much to do recently but now that he is back in the fold, I’m excited to see what he does. It should also be interesting with how Matt’s recent court victory effected Kingpin. This story should show why Daredevil-Kingpin is an iconic pairing while delivering some great lawyer action.

Moon Knight is one of the most interesting characters in comics and he has had some incredible runs recently. His multiple personalities make for really interesting stories and how each react to situations. Now that he is back in reality and out of his own head I’m curious to see what Marc is up too. Solicitations have said a new nemesis is on the horizon so I’m curious to see what they’re about. Jacen Burrows is on art duties and he is known for horror style comics so seeing how style translates will be very interesting.

Jason Aaron had a fantastic run, but all good things must come to an end. Taking his place is Kieron Gillen who has done fantastic work on both Darth Vader and Dr. Aphra. Now he is taking Luke and the gang to the remains of Jedha tying it into Rogue One. I love when Rogue One gets nods in canon and seeing how Luke reacts to this Jedi holy place being destroyed is going to be very interesting. We don’t really know what Han and Leia will be doing on Jedha but I know Gillen will deliver with Luke.
