    A good title for the strip given the actual contents of the trailer.

    Because Mickey is baller enough to no-scope.

    Since it is impossible for the artist to have made a simple error, we must assume that its like pirates. Pirates wore an eyepatch to keep one eye acclimated above decks, and one for below swithcing the eye depending where they are, if Mickey is looking through a scope into a lit room, he would close the scope eye, and open the other to keep any eye on his surroundings.

    Fruit Fucker is that evergreen cameo that makes me giggle and feel profoundly uncomfortable. It doesn't matter how many years it's been.

    Gabe would be Mickey's twelfth kill that year. Mickey's only regret was the high cost of his dry cleaning bills, as the bloodstains of the innocent, much like Mickey's sins... Could never be washed away, Aha! :rotate:

    You know, I was already going to see the new Spider-Man. Tobey and Andrew being in it doesn't in- or decrease the likelihood of that happening. So all this does is ruin the surprise for me. I know most people aren't bothered by spoilers (and kinda judge people who are), but I avoid trailers like the plague for a reason.

    I'm not blaming PA for making a comic about it, but if I met whoever leaked that trailer I would give them a very disapproving look.

    I guess him closing the scope eye explains the bloodstains on a sniper. It turns out he's just on the other side of the window.

    Is it sad that I can hear "Boom, headshot!" in Mickey's voice?

    I just realized I have created the greatest message notification sound in the known universe.

    Alternately:

    That was my favorite level of Kingdom Hearts 3, the sniper level.

    I'll do it. I'll blame them. That's a pretty crappy thing to do. There are a lot of ways to make this comic without mentioning which rumors were confirmed in the leaked trailer.

    Still haven't forgiven them for revealing that King Kong dies and that River Tam is made out of chocolate

    That one aged interestingly.

    Who’d have thought that the entire show would release before another book

    Same.

    Perhaps the leaked footage is a trailer that's going to be released eventually anyway, in which case I was always going to see it. *sigh*

    I thought I was good at just reading the words and barely seeing the images, but that is some good work.
