forty idiots and a funeral

drive-by readings

Shadowland: Bullseye #1 (Marvel)
"Bullseye: Dead On Arrival"
John Layman
Sean Chen
Sandu Florea
Guru eFX
Joe Caramagna
John Christopher Tyler (cover)

what we learned: Bullseye is dead. for now. some writer still has to figure out how to bring him back. actually, his death should resonate a lot more, being a pivotal figure in the Daredevil mythos, but i don't seem to feel the shock waves as a reader. maybe its because death has no meaning anymore in comicbookland.
oh shit moment: did Matt Murdock crack a hint of an honest smile? in his dark duds? when he found Ben Urich's bread crumbs? and while he's thinking of ways to control Hell's Kitchen all the more?
what's next: a one-shot with Shroud doing his Pig Pen thing ... just panels and panels of him walking around Manhattan with that dark dust billowing on his feet.

i hate crazy people, because they have a goddamn excuse.
