Chris Samnee

Waid and Samnee Pit Natasha Against SHIELD in ‘Black Widow’ #1

bw_featured

Mark Waid and Chris Samnee's run on Daredevil is already the stuff of legends, and it only ended last year. Now they're ready to make more comics magic with a run on Black Widow that starts March 2nd.

The preview pages show Natasha in a knockdown drag-out with what seems to be the entirety of SHIELD, and as a reader who's never bought that a super-secretive espionage organization can be heroic or trustworthy, that makes me pretty excited to read the book. Not that this creative team isn't enough to warrant plenty of excitement.

On The Cheap: Get Waid & Samnee’s ‘The Rocketeer: Cargo Of Doom’ For Four Bucks

The Rocketeer: Cargo of Doom

This week at Comixology, IDW has a sale on miniseries collections, and there's a lot of good stuff in there to check out. You can grab Walt Simonson's Star Slammers, for instance, or check out Kurt Busiek and Stuart Immonen's all-too-short Shockrockets and get bummed out about how it was only a miniseries all over again. If, however, you're looking for the best way to spend four bucks, then there's one story that you need to set your sights on: The Rocketeer: Cargo of Doom.

Originally released in 2012 as part of IDW's first big push to return Cliff Secord to pulpy, high-flying adventures, Cargo of Doom comes courtesy of Mark Waid and Chris Samnee --- a team you've probably heard of --- and features the Rocketeer battling against an entire ship-load of dinosaurs, a premise that results in one of the single best comic book panels ever published.

Art of Color: Javier Rodriguez, Color Chameleon

Javier Rodriguez's coloring work first came to my attention during his work on Daredevil, alongside Mark Waid and Paolo Rivera. It's interesting that a comic starring a blind superhero should have such vibrant, noticeable colors, but Rodriguez's work refuses to be ignored.

Black_Widow_feat

Mark Waid and Chris Samnee's run on Daredevil is rightly regarded as one of the best superhero comic runs of recent years, but creative teams that strong and synergistic don't just fade away, and a reunion always seemed certain. The good news is, we won't have long to wait for it; Marvel announced this morning that Waid and Samnee, and colorist Matthew Wilson and letterer Joe Caramagna, are the new creative team on a Black Widow series launching early in 2016.

25 Greatest Animated Comic Book Covers

ya-feat

Comic covers are meant to get their message across in a single striking image, with the implication of movement provided only by the reader's imagination. We see the single frozen moment; our brain tells the story. Yet some talented digital artists have discovered that there's some fun to be had in animating these images and providing just a little more movement to the moment. We've collected some of our favorite examples of animated comic covers from the past few years, from an endlessly recursive Batman to a lolling Hobbes; from a struggling Spider-Man to a spinning Justice League.

Gallery: Best Daredevil Art Ever

dd-feat

Created in 1964 by Bill Everett and Stan Lee --- with substantial input from Jack Kirby and Wally Wood --- Daredevil has been brought to life on the page by an extraordinary roster of comics greats, including Gene Colan, David Mazzucchelli, Frank Miller, Alex Maleev, and, in recent years, Chris Samnee, Paolo Rivera, and Marcos Martin. The striking red suit that he's worn since his seventh appearance is one of the best costumes in comics, and creates an irresistible contrast against the grime of Hell's Kitchen. For this special gallery, we've picked out some of our favorite Daredevil pin-ups and images to pay tribute to ol' hornhead.

Comics artist Wilfredo Torres' wife recently passed away from cancer. You may know Torres from some of the great work he's done over the last year on The Shadow, Batman '66, Jupiter's Circle, and on covers for the King Features line at Dynamite. To support Torres and his family in their time of grief, several comics creators have decided to raise funds by auctioning off pieces of art. They'll all be posting links on how to buy their work using the hashtag #TorresBenefit on social media. All are welcome to participate, either by bidding on art or by auctioning their art.
