The issue continues the arc by writer Brian Michael Bendis and artist Alex Maleev in which Daredevil's secret identity has been exposed by a newspaper.
"This is one of those runs on a particular title that is going to be a classic," Marvel editor-in-chief Joe Quesada said.
"This is the best thing I've ever done and the best job I've ever had," Maleev said. "After his identity is brought out in the open, it brings the character back to reality. You can relate to all of us as humans, not just super-beings flying through the art."
Maleev said Bendis' scripts come with thumbnail layouts from the writer to follow.
"I trust the guy completely," Maleev said. "Sometimes, if I have a different idea, I'll see if he likes it and we'll change it. If he doesn't, we don't."
"Like the other Marvel Knights artists, Alex's stuff looks unique unto itself," said Quesada, who is returning as Marvel Knights editor. "These guys are firing on all pistons."
Here's how Marvel describes Daredevil #35:
"If you dig Brian Michael Bendis' take on the teenaged web-slinger in Ultimate Spider-Man, just wait until you see his version of the older wall-crawler in this issue. Daredevil struggles to put his life back together -- but first he'll have to face a fighting-mad Mr. Hyde."
Daredevil, Iron Man and Captain America all have had their identities reveal to the general public of the Marvel Universe recently. Quesada said it was "serendipitous" that the stories occurred at roughly the same time.
