Marvel.com: You said that you didn’t think you were going to win – was this a surprise?

Chris Samnee: It really is. I didn’t come up with any thank yous or anything. It was all sort of on the fly, I didn’t think I had any chance. The talent that I was up against was amazing, so I didn’t think I stood a chance.

I didn’t even think I was in the running. I was just, like – I didn’t write anything down and it took me a half an hour later, but I didn’t thank [DAREDEVIL writer] Mark [Waid]. Like, I thanked the entire team, everybody except Mark. I was sure I wasn’t going to win. We were walking in here like “there’s no way.” I just love seeing the cover up there on the screen.

Marvel.com: How did you feel about tying with David Aja?

Chris Samnee: Well, David is a good friend of mine. When we were both nominated, we were DMing each other on Twitter like “oh, I’m so proud of you!” “I’m so proud of you!” and it’s really neat to be able to tie with your friend. I was rooting for him and he was rooting for me so it’s kinda neat that we both got it.

I was up against Colleen [Coover] for Bandette and I used to be a studio mate with [her]. It’s a giant community – everybody’s friends with everybody. I’m just glad to be one of the people who won. Just to be a part of this is amazing.

Marvel.com: Is there anybody else you wanted to thank?

Chris Samnee: I actually forgot to thank Mark, of all people. I thanked everybody from the whole team from both books except the writer. So, I feel terrible about it, but I’ll have to thank him tomorrow morning.
