Hey gang and sorry for not posting for a few days, but I’ve been a very busy bee cleaning out my apartment from top to bottom (I’m very proud of myself!). As you may already know, the preview for this week’s Daredevil: Reborn #1 went up on CBR on Friday. It’s Matt Murdock being, well, Matt Murdock and I’m really looking forward to a nice change from the last few months where we didn’t get to spend much time at all with the man behind the mask.
I have a slightly longer post planned for tomorrow and on Thursday or Friday, I hope to get to my review of Daredevil: Reborn #1. Meanwhile, I just felt I wanted to share a little finding I made while looking through some old issues. The panel below features an encounter (a surprisingly violent and graphic one at that) between Bullseye and the Black Widow, from Daredevil #160 by Roger McKenzie and Frank Miller. This attack takes place in Natasha’s home, and a particular piece of decor caught my eye. Do you guys see it too?
I mean, really, what is she doing with a statue of her ex-boyfriend’s head? True, it could be the actual devil or some other random guy with horns growing out of his head, but I suspect that’s really meant to be our very own “hornhead.” It’s probably a little in-joke supplied by then penciller Frank Miller, but it does raise all kinds of questions: Did Matt buy that for her? Before or after they broke up? How big is his ego, really? Did Natasha buy it herself? What the hell is wrong with her?
So many questions, so little time. Now, it’s time for bed on my side of the planet. You guys take care and I’ll get back to you soon!
