Did I Die? (Nottingham #9)
As I noted in my preview of Nottingham #8, David Hazan warned that this issue may give me a heart attack and/or scream profanities at him on the internet (but not Shane.....he's a saint). Let's see if Mr. Hazan is correct....

If you didn't read my Issue 8 reaction/preview, here are the highlights:
IS THIS OUR FIRST POETIC FLAMING SKY STABBINGS???? HOLY SHIT!
Yep, the French were pretentious dicks in the late 1100's too
OH SHIT, THAT ASSHOLE IS THE RAT? THERE WILL BE BLOOD (how presumptuous of me)
NOW WHO THE FUCK IS THIS GUY.......he stole a lovely knife.....will he stab someone?
Now that my memory is refreshed and my heart is already pre-anxiety vulnerable.....lets crack open issue 9!
TAKE 5 DEEP BREATHS AND LETS GO!
HOLY SHIT, WHO JUST NECKED THAT DUDE? IS SOMEONE BACK AMONG THE LIVING?
The art and symbolism on page 6 is stunning, Nice work Luca and Shane!!
THAT SNEAKY MOTHER FUCKER!
WAIT SHE DID WHAT?
HOLY FUCKING BETRAYAL...........
so much blood
I NEED TO WALK AWAY FOR 10 MINUTES.....
Here is my honest reaction in the end...We know how mind-blowing the talent behind this series are.....but here is where we see Hazan's true mastery stick out...He used the one twist we've been predicting for a while to POETICALLY STAB US with a MASSIVE twist NO ONE would have seen coming.....I've read this entire series about 2 dozen times already, and I got got by Hazan.....
I hate you.....
I love you.....
My heart still is a thumpin.....
Wen issue 10 drop?
