In addition to the recently announced Deadpool vs. The Punisher, Marvel looks to be on a hot streak when it comes to the five-issue miniseries in 2017. In just a matter of weeks, you will be able to get your hands on the first installment of Bullseye, which as you may guess, gives us a closer look at one of Daredevil’s greatest nemeses.
From what we can glean from the bountiful gallery provided, this one looks like a winner. Not only does it have a killer creative team at the helm, but it also doesn’t skimp on any of the grittiness or level of violence one would expect from a tale of this nature. Be sure to keep your eyes peeled for covers by Dave Johnson, Bill Sienkiewicz, Chris Stevens, Skottie Young, Marco Checchetto, John Tyler Christopher and Tim Bradstreet.
Marvel has supplied us with a detailed synopsis as well, and you can check it out for yourself below:
This February, the world’s deadliest assassin is back on the board and back in business. Today, Marvel is pleased to present a new look inside BULLSEYE #1 – the new 5-issue limited series from creators Ed Brisson (Iron Fist) and Guillermo Sanna (Deadpool)! He’s been out of commission for a while, but it’s time to show the world that they should still fear Bullseye. He’s beaten Daredevil, Elektra, the Punisher, and more. But that was just business. This? This is for pleasure. So what does the world’s greatest assassin do for fun? From the mean streets of New York City to the jungles of South America – Bullseye is going to do what he does best. Hit the targets and make sure they don’t get back up.
Plus – in addition to a full length adventure, legendary writer & Bullseye co-creator Marv Wolfman returns for a can’t-miss Bullseye back-up alongside artist Alec Morgan! What does Bullseye want with the Mafia’s most sensitive information? What lengths will he go to in order to get it?
Seeing Marv Wolfman return to Marvel should be interesting. In recent memory, he’s worked on several DC properties including Cyborg, as well as novelizations of both Batman: Arkham Knight and Suicide Squad. Switching between the Big Two is nothing new in this industry, but getting to see legendary creators playing in two sandboxes is always an exciting prospect.
Bullseye #1 arrives in comic shops on Wednesday, February 1.
