Fans were saddened to learn last week that issue #36 of Mark Waid and Chris Samnee's Daredevil will mark the end of Waid's run, and the end of an era for Ol' Hornhead. The pain was soothed slightly by a press release Marvel sent out yesterday announcing a new Infinite comic called Daredevil: Road Warrior, which will feature the Man Without Fear
aiding a small community in a post-apocalyptic wasteland in their struggle against a band of bondage-attired marauders travelling across the country from New York to California, but the journey will take place under the pencils of Peter Krause, rather than Samnee. Why? Because Chris Samnee is too damn fancy. The Outhouse spoke to him in a fictional interview:
The Outhouse: Why aren't you drawing Daredevil: Road Warrior?
Chris Samnee (laughing heartily): Ho ho ho ho! Chris Samnee? Draw an Infinite comic? Surely you're not serious.
OH: We are serious. And don't call us Shirley.
CS: Chris Samnee does not draw Infinite Comics.

OH: Those are all great books, which we at The Outhouse personally enjoyed. But it doesn't really make any sense that you won't...
CS: Chris Samnee doesn't have to make sense!
OH: He doesn't?
CS: No! Chris Samnee is Chris Samnee.
OH: Well okay then.
So Peter Krause it is. And that's not a bad thing. Krause is a talented artist as well, and he has experiencing working with Waid on the critically acclaimed Irredeemable. We caught up with Peter for another fictional interview:
The Outhouse: Peter, are you excited to be working on Daredevil: Road Warrior with Mark Waid in February?
Peter Krause (bellowing): Peter Krause doesn't get excited! Peter Krause is a...
Oh, for fuck's sake. Artists. Just roll the damn press release:
DAREDEVIL and Mark Waid go from PRINT to INFINITE COMICS!
