We already knew that Marvel comics has an upcoming limited Bullseye series putting the spotlight on some of the Daredevil supporting cast members dubbed as the “Running with the Devil” initiative, but today Marvel confirmed in a press release that original Bullseye co-creator Marv Wolfman (Deathstroke) is returning to the character with art from Alec Morgan (Aquaman). In the press release Marvel released the slightest tease at the story explaining that Bullseye is on the hunt for sensitive Mafia information in a storyline spanning the globe.
The main story in the comic has already been announced with writing from Ed Brisson (Iron Fist) with art from Guillermo Sanna (Deadpool). The comic has been confirmed as a five-issue limited series debuting February 1 from the publisher covering New York City all the way to South Africa. The series picks up with Bullseye taking a break from villain-ing.
