Chris Samnee’s domestic bliss

Most of the world knows Harvey award nominee Chris Samnee as the artist for Thor: The Mighty Avenger, Serenity: The Shepherd’s Tale,, Capote in Kansas and soon Captain America and Bucky, as well as his contributions to the Comic Twart sketchblog, but here’s something you might not now—he leaves cute little cartoon notes for his wife all the time, and she posts them in a blog called lunch notes. It’s like a sketchblog with the Samnee’s domestic life as the topic. They have a baby on the way, so many of the cartoons focus on that, and their cat also makes some guest appearances. The cartoons are warm and funny but not mushy, and the easy linework shows what a good draftsman Chris is, even when he’s dashing off a casual sketch.

chris is one of the most all-around versatile and effortlessly brilliant artists in comics today. add to the fact that he is also one of the nicest and most collaborative and, well, you almost wanna hate him:) getting to work with him on “Captain America and Bucky” has been an absolute dream!

I love Chris. He knows that. I’d give everything to write a comic for him to draw. He knows that.

He deserves all the accolades he’s been getting, and he’s been kicking ass for so long now that it’s almost surprising it took so long.

He is a superb talent, a wonderfully nice human being, and just an all-around good guy. If you can find copies, buy his sketchbook and the lunchnotes collections. You’ll love everything he draws and laugh at the same time. He’s amazing and I can’t wait for Cap and Bucky.
