If you’re “reading” this (rumor has it that you’re very good with your fingers, and I would not disagree), you know I’ve left. Empty-handed, I promise.
Don’t tell anyone. You’ll ruin my rep.
Matt, Black Spectre hired me to steal this from you.They thought I could be bribed into handing over a hard drive that would give them leverage over all the rest of organized crime.
But I’m not an idiot. I know better than to bring matches to a man holding dynamite.
I didn’t tell you because I needed to see if the drive was hidden securely. And, take it from me, it’s really not. The “invisible” Adamantium safe is nice, but if I could find it, so could Megacrime.
Whatever treaties they’ve made with Megacrime, Matt, know that Black Spectre is shadowing your every move. You’re in deadly danger.
And me? They’ll hunt me to the ends of the Earth for backstabbing them.
So until this situation resolves, loverboy, I’m going off the grid. Sorry to rat and run, but this is above my pay grade. I hope you don’t need me for a while.
But I hope you miss me.

Oh man. I didn’t post this when I read it because I don’t like to post spoilers (I always try and post panels/pages the Saturday after issues come out and not a second before), but that means I forgot to talk about this page.
And god fucking DAMN do I love this page. I think people had some concern over Waid’s writing of Felicia, but with this page I think he effectively put any of my own concerns to bed.
