A Year of Cool Comic Book Moments – Day 67

by  in Comic News Comment

Here is the latest cool comic book moment in our year-long look at one cool comic book moment a day (in no particular order whatsoever)! Here‘s the archive of the moments posted so far!

Today we look at one of Bullseye’s best moments and one of the coolest fights in the pages of Daredevil ever!

Enjoy!

Frank Miller introduced the assassin Elektra in the pages of Daredevil #168, his first issue as writer/artist. Now, in issue #181, he showed the long-awaited showdown between Elektra and the other notable assassin of the comic, Bullseye.

And wow, Miller and Klaus Janson (who finished Miller’s pencils) did an amazing job depicting one of the coolest fight scenes you’ll see in a comic book, and they shocked many a reader by the fact that only one of the pair lived after this fight…






The “moment” of the fight is likely when Bullseye kills Elektra with her own sai, but boy is there a lot of other great bits, including the amazing range of emotion that Miller gets out of Elektra after she knows she has been killed. The way she wills herself to walk to Matt Murdock’s doorstep – it’s chilling.

Hmmmm…I think tomorrow I will give the aftermath of this fight, from later in this issue!
