Chris Samnee's Daredevil: Artist's Edition HC -- SPOTLIGHT
Mark Waid (w) • Chris Samnee (a & c)
IDW Publishing launched the very first Artist's Edition in 2010. It was a bold concept that to date has garnered five consecutive Eisner Awards in the category of Best Archival Project. With the release of Chris Samnee's Daredevil Artist's Edition we continue to stay ahead of the pack by featuring not one, not two, but THREE versions of Samnee's gorgeous original art -- we like to think of it as an Artist's Edition triple play! This amazing collection will be presented in TWO books. The first, a hardcover featuring Daredevil Issues 23 - 27. Since these books were lettered digitally, you will see more of the Samnee's original art than ever before! Additionally, all of Chris' beautiful layouts will be printed here, again, scanned from the original art. The second book will be a horizontal softcover, printing all Mark Waid's scripts -- but that's not all -- Samnee's artistic technique involves drawing thumbnail breakdowns ON the script pages themselves. Which means there are THREE versions of art presented, plus the actual script enabling you to read along with the story! Additionally, these two books will come in a handsome slipcase. You've heard the term "Artist's Artist?" This will be an "Artist's Artist's Edition!"
HC/TPB w/slipcase • BW • $95.00 net cost item • 160 page HC + 60 page SC • 12" x 17" HC + 17" x 12" SC• ISBN: 978-1-63140-723-9
•Advance solicited for October release!
•The immensely popular, critically acclaimed, and Eisner Award-winning duo of Mark Waid and Chris Samnee are showcased in their first Artist's Edition!
•TWO books, slipcased!
I recently interviewed Lauren Mary Kim, who doubled for actress Elodie Yung in Daredevil Season 2.
We spoke about the show and all the planning involved, and how her background in dance helped her with her career.
She also has released a brand-new demo reel showcasing all her Elektra work. Hope you enjoy the interview!
August 2016 solicits are now on the site, and we've got DAREDEVIL #10 and the final issue of DAREDEVIL/PUNISHER.
And if you've checked out the news updates from the past few days, you know about the DAREDEVIL ANNUAL coming our way as well!
📷 A few people have asked me what my storyboards look like for the current Daredevil/Punisher series,... https://t.co/d8gWwNW4zz— Reilly Brown (@Reilly_Brown) May 11, 2016
DAREDEVIL writer Charles Soule hinted that there was an Annual coming this year, and today we've learned some more cool details about it.
The Annual will be shipping in August, and joining Soule as co-writer will be former DAREDEVIL writer Roger McKenzie! It's great to see him back in the pages of DD after 30 years away.
The artwork will be drawn by Vanesa R. Del Rey, and there will be two variant covers by Skottie Young and McKenzie as well.
If you check out the cover, there's also a return of past DAREDEVIL character.
More details at Newsarama.

We’re not joking – this issue contains two full issues of Deadpool, one issue of Power Man and Iron Fist and one issue of Daredevil! Writers Gerry Duggan, David Walker and Charles Soule join forces with artists Jacopo Camagni, Guillermo Sanna, Elmo Bondoc and Paco Diaz to bring you one for the history books!
