"I've been a lifelong Daredevil fan and Mark happens to be one of my all-time favorite funnybook writers," said Samnee in a Marvel press release. "I've have been head over heels for this latest run of DD since I first caught a glimpse of Paolo's onomatopoeia filled cover for issue one."

"When Chris's pages come in over email, I drop everything to admire them," Waid is quoted in Marvel's release. "He's astounding."

"Chris is a profoundly adept storyteller with an eye for posture and mood in all his characters," said Marvel senior editor, Stephen Wacker, in the release. "He's a perfect complement to his cohort Paolo Rivera's outstanding art on Daredevil and I'm over the moon that he's on board."
