With 2 Herculean mega-compendiums down, the 1k page count is passed. Only adding to the vast deluge of blood, the origin myth of 100 Bullets is spelled with the red ink of spilled its own life fluid. Draped and crimson and churned alongside hefty doses of history and conspiracy, the result is frothy with life-addled excellence.

What has been merely hinted at before, has had muscle and guts added to its misty skeletal structure. Finally, able to walk on its own, the shadowiness has been lifted som

I really love this entire series. Hard edged noir all the way through. Although the series starts to lose steam for me around the 10th tpb, when they start to focus on the Trust a little too much for me. And you might go from loving Agent Graves to hating him. Still there are so many great self-contained tales before you get to that point. I heartily recommend this one to any fan of crime fiction.

Book Three of the new edition collects "Six Feet under the Gun," "Samurai," and "The Hard Way," books six, seven, and eight of the original trade collections.

I thought I had read them all before, but there were gaps in my reading or my memory. The new 'deluxe' collections are a great way to get the story (which is sort of an epic) together in one place (or at least five places).

The art obviously owes a debt to Frank Miller's Sin City, but Risso draws better than Miller. The pupil has become the

This is a huge compilation and a lot of now obviously interlocking story arcs with increasingly interesting characters that you come to care about. Some even moving, such as the jazz musician story. Tigers make their way into one story. Thrown bear traps in another. I like that Wylie, and April, a lot. Lono is a Miller type character, cartoonly muscled, crazy, and even he is someone you come to care about (as you do with Miller's characters).

Not for the squeamish, this 100 Bullets, that's for s

Azzarello and Risso continue to KILL IT with this exceptionally satisfying 3rd volume. This edition probably hits the high water mark for the series. Several great arcs are included. Below are four of my most adored. Things are slowly starting to come together as we cross the halfway point of this lengthy tale. New characters are introduced and we catch up with some old ones. And not everybody makes it out alive.

"Chill in the Oven" is another of my all-time favorites. It smacks of HBO's "OZ", on

Still as good as ever however this is the first book that made me realize I should have read the whole serie at once and not spread over a year. There are subtle clues in some pages that puts new light on a story taking place 400 pages later. Everything is interconnected and I have forgotten a lot of the small stuff that happened in the first book. As it is, once I finally get the 5th deluxe book, I will have to reread everything from start.

This sprawling, overrated epic has an interest plot device, but it continually repeats, over and over, with diminishing returns.

With uninspiring, washed out artwork, this intertwining, multifaceted storyline grinds towards banality.

I'm somewhat disappointed by the lack of focus. I do understand that there's some story development, but I grow tired of side-stepping, of focusing on other things, of half-reveals and useless violence. It's not that the violence is too much, it's only that violence became arcade-y, meaningless.

There are some interesting stories, but the overall story, the big one, is really fuzzy. At least it is for me. And that „magic word” thing is just boring.

another excellent installment, slightly downgraded by my confusion with the characters - even a 2 page recap to start would have been a great help.

This series will blow your mind over and over until there is nothing left but bullets, treachery, blood, and awesomesauce everywhere. A must read.

Enjoyed more than Book 2 of series. Felt characters and stories had more relevance. Lono survives wounds and goes to prison. Wylie, Shephard and Dizzy have encounters in the Big Sleazy aka New Orleans. Besides the individual vignettes, macrocosm of the Trust versus the former Minutemen goes on. Tying thirteen families into Croatoa mystery in Roanoke was a cunning stroke.

This series started at 5 stars and has consistently gotten better, so I wish I could give this thing 7 stars to show how much I loved this volume. At this point the storytelling has fully moved shifted into high gear, spending the vast majority of its time on the Trust and the Minutemen, the main players in the overall series arc. Yet even though we've moved into much grander, bolder, conspiracy-theory level plots, each storyline still stays thoroughly focused on one or two characters, letting y ...more

Out of all the 100 Bullets stories I have read this far, this one seems to stick out the most for me. Maybe it's the jazz musician or the tigers or the thrown bear traps. Who am I kidding, throwing bear traps at people is quite possibly the cruelest backwater way to attack someone. That's definitely high up there on why this sticks out the most for me. Azzarello & Risso never cease to disappoint.

It was okay I guess. Some of the plot and almost all of the dialogue was dumb, but the story overall was okay (albeit pretty goddamn hard to follow). Except for the ending, which was just not executed well (pun!) at all. I'd probably read it again someday and find it easier to follow.

CROATOA! Big things are relieved in this volume.

Dark. Dirty. Wild. Surprising. Even darker. A little sickening but oh so gratifying!

Damn this was a good book - exactly what a crime comic book should be, and I loved every minute of it.

How on earth did readers of the original comic manage to keep an eye on all of the plot developments in this darkest of modern noirs? This 22-volume missile swoops around various connected stories, although the threads are still very much coming together. Despite reading the previous 36 instalments fairly recently, I tend to end up thinking "Have I seen this character before" an awful lot.

Helped when a series runs for a couple or more episodes, I think this will make more sense with a rereading

Genialna. Chyba najlepsza z dotychczasowych części tego zbiorczego wydania. Gęsta, soczysta fabuła. Genialne epizody. Wreszcie, cała dotychczasowafabuł wreszcie się zazębia, wątki się łączą i to tak, że serducho momentami przyspiesza a szczęka też może opaść. Must have. Must read.

The plot starts moving forward at a steady pace and I thought personally some of those side stories were best to date, with a true punch of an ending.

Actually I just re-read one of this series of graphic novels, "Dirty". They are astonishing books with amazing art that superbly expands and fleshes out the story.
100 Bullets starts with an old guy in a suit offering, seemingly at random, a briefcase containing a gun and 100 untraceable, unprosecuteable bullets. I.e. Bullets that you can use for anything and you will not be troubled by the law. This happens to a few people who have seemingly moral dilemmas and an enemy. The case also contains pr

Recommends it for: conspiracists, cynics, philosophers
Absolutely brilliant and dark story that raises poignant questions about morality and revenge fulfillment. With a rich, deeply flawed cast, 100 Bullets is one of the most riveting noir dramas in which I both hated and loved every character.

If you like Illuminati theories and assassin stories, do read this.

I'm loving this series. The stakes are raised in book 3, I'm eager to see what happens next with the Minutemen. The art seems to have gotten better than in the first couple books, and the writing is more complex with flashbacks regularly occurring to fill in the blanks within the story. I recommend this series to people who enjoy mature graphic novels.
