Senior Editor Stephen Wacker told The Associated Press on Tuesday that the audio version of "Daredevil" No. 1 came about after he and series writer Mark Waid thought the Matt Murdock/Daredevil character, blinded as a child, might appeal to visually impaired fans.
"It was never meant to take the place of a reading experience, but for fans who either have sight impairment or know someone who does, I thought it was a fun introduction to the new book," Wacker said. "It was an extracurricular activity for us. It's us sitting around and reading."
