Great B&W artwork

Not bad. Good artwork, I love the black and white sketches, but a bit too short and somewhat predictable. Trying #2

I loved it!, it is like a pulp comic book, It felt like a Quentin Tarantino's work. The drawing is excellent black and white ink, the best.

A crime drama.

Black and white. Sort of reminds me of Elmore Leonard. Though on second thought, maybe Quentin Tarantino would be a more accurate comparison.

Like Of Mice and Men if they had guns and no pathos. Not my kind of thing at all, but then I tend to dislike noir. I already know the world is filled with pain and ugliness. Humans in general and the mass media, in particular, are inclined to see and wallow in those things over the beauty and kindness in the world. I go to art generally to help me find transcendence or remind me of the good in the world. It was very well drawn though.

It's been years since I've read these. I had to wait for each issue to come out.
To truly appreciate the genius behind Stray Bullets you need to read more than one.
I got to meet David Lapham wayyyy back in the day at his booth at the comic con in Chicago. Super nice guy. He signed my first issue I brought with me.
It's not like nowadays. Just a cool down to earth guy maintaining his booth. Shot the shit with us.

I don't normally list single issues but Stray Bullets doesn't comfortably fit the Trade Paperback arc. There are links between the stories but they stand well as short stories. This one is a chilling crime story about vulnerability and cruelty. Strong.

Good book

This is a good comic book for adults I don't recommend this for children there is a lot of strong language.

Just not my style of book. Otherwise, Lapham is a talented creator. The facial expressions are particularly well-done.
