Why It Was Awesome
Of all the first issues that I picked up this week, if you had told me I would enjoy this one the most I wouldn’t have believed you. Initially I wasn’t even going to pick it up but after talking to Del Mundo at Fan Expo Vancouver and seeing some art for myself I couldn’t resist picking it up. What I was gifted with was an issue that blew me away. The art was breathtaking, the way Blackman delved into Elektra’s state of mind was illuminating, and the introduction of this new foe was intriguing. Add that to an appearance by Bullseye and (did I mention?) fantastic art and what we got was an awesome debut that has me counting down the days until the second issue’s arrival.

    • They had a quick flashback frame of him killing Elektra and then later on the newest villain broke into a secure facility to get to the paralysed version of Bullseye.

      • I figured it was a flashback of that scene. It became so iconic that you can find a reference to it in about half of the comics Elektra appears in. Thanks for the info! : )

  1. I really enjoyed Daredevil #2 as well and Batman Eternal #3 was brilliant. I’m really enjoying my weekly issues of this Batman adventure its been so exciting 😀
