Hey there, True Believer!  Warren Simons here. I'm the editor of DAREDEVIL, INVINCIBLE IRON MAN and THOR, and next week sees the release of the massive-sized DAREDEVIL #500. This is the second gigantic, wonderful monstrosity of an anniversary issue I've been lucky enough to edit with my cohort Alejandro Arbona, and if you like comics, I think you'll really dig this one. We've got a 40-page story by Ed Brubaker and Michael Lark (the final issue of their run!), a preview of DARK REIGN: THE LIST - DAREDEVIL by Andy Diggle and Billy Tan and a terrific backup story by acclaimed DD writer Ann Nocenti and all-around genius David Aja. Additionally, we've got an extremely cool cover gallery featuring all 500 issues of DAREDEVIL, as well as some brand new pin-ups we commissioned just for the occasion of this lovely anniversary issue.

Here on Marvel.com will be previewing some of these pin-ups and pieces of art—from both new and legendary DD creators alike—as well as some art from the issue, which I will be yammering on and on about.

Today we’re taking a look at regular DAREDEVIL artist Michael Lark's work, from his first issues on the series to a few pages from #500.

DAREDEVIL #500 goes on sale today. This is the culmination of Ed Brubaker and Michael Lark's run, and we're going to take a look at some of the beautiful pages that Michael has penciled over the past few years.

Michael is one of the best storytellers in the industry, and a consummate professional and a great guy to boot. While we had one or two guest artists complete an issue of DAREDEVIL every year, Michael is pretty much a monthly guy, which means that he's able to pencil 22 pages of pencils approxiamtely every month. That's rare in this day and age, but it's the primary reason why DAREDEVIL has (more or less) maintained a monthly schedule over the past three years.

Below you'll find the first six pages of DD #82—which was Ed and Michael's first issue—as well as a few select splash pages and action sequences from the first arc.

If you're a young artist looking to explore the fundamentals of storytelling,  it will pay dividends to examine and deconstruct the crisp, clean storytelling inherent in Michael's pages . 

Pick up DAREDEVIL #500, on sale now and come back over the next few days for more pin-ups, pages and perspective from the landmark issue.
