Samnee discusses the evolution of his involvment on the title, including the credit change to "storyteller" on DAREDEVIL.
Former DAREDEVIL editor Stephen Wacker also sat down with Newsarama to discuss the origins of the Waid run, and the tone change from Andy Diggle to Waid, and some of his opinions of the Daredevil show.
Be sure to check back for another update for Part 3 of the Samnee interview on Friday.
There's been lots of Netflix show cast additions and news... so here's a quick rundown:

DAREDEVIL #18 ships tomorrow and Newsarama has an interview with artist Chris Samnee about the issue.
Samnee promises that the final issue will have the "best possible conclusion" and he talks about his collaboration with Mark Waid, Matt Wilson and the rest of the Daredevil team.
Samnee also provided Newsarama with some sketches and layouts, so be sure to check the link on the interview page.
Part 2 of the interview will take a look back at the entire run with Mark Waid and it will be posted later this week.
Here's a preview of DAREDEVIL #18, the final issue of volume 4.
DAREDEVIL #18, by Waid, Samnee and Wilson ships September 2nd.
We still haven't seen the solicit for DAREDEVIL #1 yet, but we've got news of another variant.
The action figure variant by John Tyler Christopher is exclusively on Comic Vine, and gives a better look at the new costume that's coming in the series by Charles Soule and Ron Garney.
Coming later this year from Marvel will be over 20 variant covers featuring fan cosplayers.
Featured on DAREDEVIL #1 will be Patrick "Rick" Lane in the traditional red costume.
No word yet on other variants for DAREDEVIL #1, but judging by previous relaunches, there will be many.
DAREDEVIL #1 by Charles Soule and Ron Garney is expected in December.
Is this a promo for Season 2, or is it a continuation of promos that Marvel has been doing for Daredevil? Fans have been saying the costume is slightly different... but it may not be.
Also to confuse things, fans are seeing pics from this tweet, thinking it's a Season 2 design as well, but it was featured in a panel with many costume designers... and Stephanie Maslansky (Daredevil costume designer) has confirmed the pics are from Season 1, but it's not stopping everyone from saying it's from Season 2.
Taylor Browne forwarded me some pics of the DAREDEVIL panel from Wednesday afternoon in New York City! Check out some of the designs.
Have you picked up SECRET WARS: SECRET LOVE #1 yet? It's sold out at Diamond and may be going for a second printing. It has a Daredevil/Karen Page/Typhoid Mary story by Michel Fiffe.
Fiffe shared some of his page process on his site:
If you're going to NICE, make sure to get this great print by Ben Oliver!
Make sure to catch this panel at the LBCC next month!
If you had a look at the November solicits, you'll notice DAREDEVIL #1 is still not there, so hopefully we'll see the first issue by Charles Soule and Ron Garney in December!
Just Jared has some new pics of actor Jon Bernthal from the Daredevil set.
Taken on Monday, Bernthal looks like he's got cuts and blood on his face, and does it look like the Punisher skull outline is under his shirt?
Check out the pics on the site and some of the other sets of pics of Bernthal from Daredevil.
Writer Gleb Lipatkin and artist Dima Ivanov worked on this piece to show their appreciation of the Waid/Rivera/Samnee/Rodriguez/Wilson run on DAREDEVIL.
Here is Ivanov describing what the work meant to them and how music shapes the story. Excellent work!
"Me and my friend Gleb are very big fans of the last two volumes of Daredevil.
Such talented storytellers as Mark Waid, paolo-rivera, Marcos Martin, chrissamnee, thejaviercaster, Matt Wilson
(the list goes on) issue after issue were creating one of the best books in the genre. Aaand it's going to end very soon.
So here's our way to express gratitude for creating this awesome experience -
little tribute comic book about Daredevil. The story is called "Radio is in the Devil" and it's our take on the role of
music in Matt Murdock's life. We really hope you're going to enjoy it, because creating was an absolute blast."
Forthcoming DAREDEVIL writer Charles Soule chatted with CBR about many topics related to the series...
Some of them include: His love of the character, Matt's new career, secret identity, Samuel Chung, Foggy Nelson, new villains, and of course, the great art by Ron Garney.
Make sure to check out some of Garney's artwork presented in the interview.

Next up, we've got a funny look at what the Punisher could be like in the Daredevil show, by NepotismTV!

The actor, who of course will be playing Frank Castle -- The Punisher -- is seen filming on a street location... but without his trademark costume.
Have a look at the links:

Drawn by Alex Maleev, the pic of DD can be viewed with a sliding motion to reveal more. Several other Marvel characters are presented, including Captain Marvel, Luke Cage and She-Hulk.
While the interview at The AV Club yesterday hinted at the characters coming in the new DAREDEVIL this October, this interview with writer Charles Soule at Marvel.com names the villains and the sidekick, and also the cast of characters at Matt's day job.
There's also a preview pic by Ron Garney that shows a slightly modified DAREDEVIL logo, as the "horns" have been removed from the second D.
Have a read:
There were hints of an exclusive Daredevil figure (or line of figures) coming this year from Walgreens, and it appears we've got our first look.
Here's a link on the Walgreens site.
And looks like The Fwoosh has a pic of the figure at SDCC!
More details as I get them...
She was hinted in season one, but now we've got official word from Marvel about Elektra... namely she's appearing in season two, and actress Elodie Yung will be playing her.
Yung has appeared in G.I. Joe: Retaliation (playing a ninja) and District 13: Ultimatum and several TV shows in France.
What do you think of the casting?
The AV Club has posted a new interview with forthcoming DAREDEVIL writer Charles Soule and artist Ron Garney.

With Charles Soule and Ron Garney coming onboard in October, we're learning more about what to expect... from editor-in-chief Axel Alonso and Soule himself.
From Alonso, in his CBR column:
Charles and Ron come in with a vision for what they want to do with Daredevil. While this series definitely builds on what came before, they are going to leap headfirst into noir -- delving into the darker corners of Murdock's world without getting lost in it. And they are going to bring in a host of fascinating new characters that are going to make Daredevil's job a lot more complicated. Oh, and Charles is a practicing attorney, so expect Matt Murdock's closing arguments to be really on-point. And the rumor sites have one thing wrong -- that's not Gambit next to him.
From Soule, on Twitter:
So, I am writing Daredevil. I would have commented earlier, but I wasn't actually sure if it had been officially announced.
Following @markwaid and @ChrisSamnee is no joke, but @rongarney and I will do our damnedest to carry the torch. (And yes, pun intended.)
Speaking of @RonGarney, dear god, wait until you see his pages. Beautifully fluid. Dark. Whole bottles of ink being used.
I'll talk more about my take down the road, but I've been thinking about my version of Daredevil for years and years. This will be that.
It won't be She-Hulk, but my lawyerly background will still come into play in a big way. A very different kind of legal feel.
First two planned bad guys are new. And weird.
Also - THAT IS NOT GAMBIT. More on that fellow soon.
DAREDEVIL #1 by Soule and Garney ships in October.
