Daredevil has major problems this week, but its nothing to do with the stories of his comics. Instead its the backstory of his comic.

The print edition of this week's Daredevil #8 comic, an over-sized $9.99 special celebrating the 60th anniversary of the character that went on sale April 24, is missing a major part of the comic - 16 pages of it to be exact. The special, advertised to be an 88-page anthology with stories from various creators, is missing full stories Ann Nocenti/Stefano Raffaele and Elsa Sjunneson/Eric Koda intended for the all-star anthology.

Marvel has confirmed the issue affects all of the Daredevil #8 printings, including the six variant editions, and they have sent out a message to retailers apologizing for the error. The company is making all copies of Daredevil #8 returnable from now through the end of May, with a corrected reprint being rushed to printers as a replacement now.

In a statement, Marvel made it a point to say the missing pages don't affect the story of the series as a whole. "The missing 16 pages of Daredevil #8 do not affect the main series story by Saladin Ahmed, and keeps this primary story in continuity with Daredevil #7 and Daredevil #9," reads the statement from the publisher.

Marvel expects to have the corrected reprint to stores to go on-sale May 22, 2024. It should be noted that the digital editions of Daredevil #8 do not have this error, and contain the complete issue as originally advertised by Marvel.
