Lady Bullseye Gets Second Shot
Marvel is over-joyed to announce that Daredevil #111 has sold out at Diamond and thus will be re-solicited. The second printing will have a wrap-around cover with art by Clay Mann.
If you don’t know who this lady is, that’s because she’s just been introduced. She makes her debut in Daredevil #111, by Ed Brubaker and Clay Mann. This issue is the beginning of a new story-arc and is also set-up to be a jumping-on point for new readers.
Daredevil’s been through a lot lately. His wife is in a mental institution. He finds himself attracted to another woman. And he’s never in short supply of enemies. As any Daredevil fan can tell you, one of the hero’s most personal foe is the assassin Bullseye. Gifted with an innate understanding of geometry and physics, Bullseye can take any hand-held object and instantly calculate how to throw it so that it becomes a lethal weapon.
Over the years, Bullseye has destroyed Daredevil’s world twice, first by killing his lover Elektra (although she was later resurrected) and then later by killing his other great love, Karen Page. When Daredevil once tried to get revenge on the killer by dropping him from a rooftop, the little psychopath just got himself an adamantium spine and got back into action. Nowadays, Daredevil couldn’t go after Bullseye even if he wanted to, as the assassin serves as an agent of Norman Osborn’s Thunderbolts and thus has federal protection.
The very mention of the name Bullseye causes Daredevil pain and anger. How much worse will it be when he finally meets the new Lady Bullseye, a woman who has dedicated herself to emulating the assassin, whom she considers a hero? And while Bullseye killed for the sheer enjoyment of it, moving from one body to the next without a care, our new Lady Bullseye looks on murder as an art form, to be carefully laid out and appreciated in all its glory.
This new issue is an enticing one and Lady Bullseye promises to be an interesting new rogue. So if you haven’t gotten your copy of #111, be on the look-out for the second printing!
