Daredevil: End of Days is an American comic book miniseries featuring the Marvel Comics character Daredevil, written by Brian Michael Bendis and David W. Mack, drawn by Klaus Janson, inked by Bill Sienkiewicz and with covers by Alex Maleev. Mack, Sienkiewicz and Maleev also contribute occasional interiors and splash pages throughout the series. It concerns the death of Daredevil, not unlike previous "Marvel: The End" miniseries, which told the final stories of other Marvel Comics characters.
According to Bendis, "It goes a little further than most of The End stories. And we make it canon. This is in continuity; not too dissimilar to how Dark Knight Returns became continuity through sheer force of will. So we put it out there and everybody jumped."
The series finds the future as a violent and dark underworld. According to Bendis, the first two issues (out of an originally planned six) will be double-sized. Nearly all of Daredevil's rogues gallery, his surviving past loves, and various other Marvel heroes will make appearances.
Despite little news on the project in recent years, Bendis mentioned it in a recent interview as 'The project that never ends,' implying work is still being done on the project. In addition, at Comicpalooza 2011 in Houston, TX, David Mack also affirmed that work was still being done on the series.
Following in June 2011, in a press release that announced Daredevil would be joining the New Avengers, Marvel also announced that the long awaited Daredevil: End of Days series would see print in Fall 2011.
On July 9, 2012, Marvel announced in a press release that the first issue of the series would ship in October 2012.

In a final battle with Bullseye, Daredevil's last word before his death was "Mapone". Ben Urich, covering the story for the soon-to-be-defunct Daily Bugle, sets out to unravel Matt Murdock's one remaining secret: Mapone.
