Bullseye: Greatest Hits #3-4 (or 5)
writer: Daniel Way
artist: Greg Dillon
published by Marvel Knights

Previously in this limited series, we've found that Bullseye was both an ex-operative of both the CIA and the NSA and every bit the rotten, psychotic SOB we know and love from the Daredevil comics.
Now, we find out he was also a heck of an entrepeneur, too. Using his CIA mandate in Nicaragua, Bullseye cut off the flow of cocaine through the country in the 80s to make a buck. He also incurred the wrath of the Punisher. Bad idea? Well, you're not Bullseye. Bullseye continues playing games with agents Baldry and Hoskins, leading to a showdown in the fifth and final issue that I'm gonna guess is gonna be bloody.
Daniel Way's a talent, and I don't know where Marvel dug him up, but they need to give him the room he needs and a few good characters to play with. Between his great characterization of Bullseye and Steve Dillon's art, I can't say enough good thnigs about this series.
I'm sure the trade will be out two weeks after the final issue, so you don't have to worry too much.
