Daredevil #12 Cover. 20. Ink on Marvel board, 11 × 17.25″.
This was an exciting weekend for Daredevil news. First and foremost, I'd like to welcome Chris Samnee to the team, who will be alternating arcs with me on the series. I've been a "Samnee-vore" for some time, consuming his beautiful, black and white pin-ups via his blog and Comic Twart. He's a pitch-perfect match for the book, and his pencils for issue 12 are phenomenal. I'll be providing the cover, pictured above, which pretty much sums up the issue. It's simply a joy to read.
Samnee's grand entrance, however welcome, was old news to me (I just couldn't tell anybody for the longest time). What I didn't expect to get this weekend was a congratulatory email from David Mazzucchelli, informing me that the Daredevil, Vol. 1 hardcover collection made it on the New York Time Best Sellers list. Hot damn. Thanks to everyone for supporting the book and spreading the word.
Lastly, I just finished issue 10, which means I can finally leave the apartment. Time to get a haircut. Special thanks to my Paw, for rearranging his schedule to make sure the pages got in on time. And thanks to my girlfriend, who fed me and made sure I didn't lose all contact with the outside world.
