“I met a sniper once, at Bragg. Kid from Alabama. Wasn’t long after Korea finished up. Everyone was talking about going home, and some asshole asked this kid how he could do the things he’d done: How he could pull the trigger on so many people. He didn’t bat an eyelid. He said shooting, being a marksman, it helped him make sense of the world. He said the four constant, steady clicks of the bolt– up and back, forward and down– put him in mind of a kind of mechanism. Like clockwork, maybe. In a warzone, in the middle of all that blood and chaos, he’d found one simple thing he could rely on. When things got bad, it banished the fear. In battle, it gave him back control. Well that day in Laos– I watched Frank Castle make the world make sense.”

GORAN PARLOV and NATHAN FAIRBAIRN illustrated the backup story in SPECTACULAR #1 and it is SO GREAT that I can’t stop looking at the pages!
