So, Marvel let Matt Kindt and Marco Rudy loose with the wall crawler under the Marvel Knights banner.  I liked it, especially the art, but I have to say: I’m disappointed that there’s no reference to Harlan Ellison and Arthur Byron Cover’s two issue arc that basically this entire issue was lifted from.  In that comic, an exploding little girl lures DD into a house full of death traps, where he gets drugged and hallucinates.  She looks exactly like the girl in this story, and the traps are the same.

Maybe they’ll explain that at some point, but they could have at least paid tribute.  One great thing about older Marvel, they always had those little boxes from the editor to point you to earlier, relevant stories….
