It certainly looked like a younger Matt but there was nothing in the exchange between himself and Foggy to indicate that. What did you think?

I attributed that to being similar to Matt "seeing" Foggy as the old grocer he knew when he was young. Matt hasn't actually seen his own face since he was a teenager. and as we all probably have a romanticized or improved vision of ourselves in our own mind's eye, I figured the art was showing that Matt pictures himself slightly younger-looking than he actually is. a subtle trick in the art that you can infer from what he says about Foggy in the dream sequence.

I actually sided with some of ARP first post here, because I've been getting bored with Waid's run too - but then he kept talking.

Fact - Nocenti's run was one of the very best.

But my favorite ARP bit was...

I just can't make sense of anyone being bored with Waid's run or this arc.

As Waid has progressed on this book, it has been rocketing up my all-time DD rankings.

Top 3 is still Miller, Bendis and Brubaker... But I am seriously considering Waid at 3 when all is said and done, and assuming the book continues to be as awesome as it is.

Really looking forward to SF Liberal DD.

I loved what Bendis did in Moon Knight with setting up a West Coast crime empire. And let's be honest, more heroes need to move out of N.Y..
