"Hardcore" Parts 3 and 4 Daredevil 48-49 (August-September 2003)
Reader Rating: Average; Thunderbolts Interest: Medium
Summary: Bullseye's returns, this time helping the Kingpin to rebuild his criminal empire by -- you guessed it -- killing Daredevil.
Continuity: Start on page 11 of chapter 3. This is Bullseye's first appearance with the bull's-eye tattoo on his forehead. Daredevil makes it even more permanent by outlining it with a rock. The Hardcore story arc has two preceeding chapters and one following but Bullseye does not appear in them so, really, who cares.
(Note: The miniseries The Target features Bullseye with the tattoo and was published earlier, but it remains imcomplete.)
Story: Brian Michael Bendis; Art: Alex Maleev
Comments: Bendis' script is wordy and awkwardly paced. Maleev's art is moody but static; there's no motion. Where Daredevil, the character, is bristling with intensity, the storytellers fail to inject any into Daredevil, the comic.
