The finale of this monstrous series is fittingly huge, and yet it somehow feels unsatisfying. The ending was just too abrupt, and I don't feel like we got all the answers to the numerous questions raised. And that's kinda infuriating, considering how long this series is. Still, if you're a fan of the crime noir genre, 100 Bullets is absolutely worth reading. It's a very unique series, moody, with colourful characters, beautiful art and more than a few great stories to tell. It's definitely not f ...more

100 Bullets starts very strongly, as a series of standalone morality tales tied together by hints of a shadowy conspiracy. The mysterious Agent Graves offers someone who has fallen on hard times an attaché case containing 100 untraceable bullets, and the opportunity to take revenge on the person who ruined their life.

In later issues Azzarello abandons the attaché case premise to concentrate on a meta story involving Graves' employer "The Trust", an alliance of 13 ultra powerful families who secr

I feel lucky to have read this through relatively quickly, without the usual waiting around as a series takes its time to spin out. You get more of a sense of continuity, a sense that things are building in this clockwork way. And the ending doesn't disappoint, things come together, and since it is a noir thriller, we get all the expected ultra-violence we have been waiting for. There's some emotional resonance, too, that I can't talk about in specifics without spoiling the story for new readers ...more

Never have I been so confused by a series that I concentrated on so freaking hard!

Characters that were good, suddenly became 'bad'. Bad guys were suddenly fighting for good. But everyone was killing everyone anyway, so how 'good' or 'bad' was anyone really?
That person that you thought had died, nah, he has been shot a gazillion times, including one round right to the head, but he is just going to get up and come at you again like the Hulk. Oh you thought that he was a different character? Nah

The 4 stars is really for the entire series. Lots of violence, conspiracies, betrayals, sex, alliances, brutality and family treachery going on here. I had a good time with it. It did feel as though the story was slipping off the rails in the last few volumes, but the pace and the artwork kept me engaged. I wanted to know who'd be left standing at the end, and I had some characters (Echo, Dizzy, Loop and Cole) to root for along the way. Like the other reviews here, not everything added up and th ...more

This chapter brings the series to conclusion, plenty of action but not the finale I wanted. I definitely felt underwhelmed by the series after some promising chapters. The series as an overall is a 3 star. I expected a grand finale but obviously missed the point. There was so much hype surrounding this series but I failed to see why. Lots of carnage but not enough to showcase the chapters tiresome story

Brian Azzarello, 100 Bullets: Wilt (Vertigo, 2009)

If you've been following 100 Bullets, you've probably got the idea that when it came down to the last volume, Azzarello and artist Eduardo Risso were going to blow up the entire world. And they fulfill pretty much every expectation you have in Wilt, the thirteenth and final volume in the series. And while I adored it as much as I've adored every other book in the series, I found myself thinking over and over again that while everything is blowing

And so the epic concludes. It's hard to put a lot of this ending in context without considering the entirety of the tale Azzarello and Risso have been spinning for however many years it's been. Suffice to say, the conclusion here delivers on the same thematic levels as you'd expect from 100 BULLETS. No character is spared the brutality.

Which leads to the greater question of WHY a lot of these moments happened at all. There's definitely a sense of "HUH?!" when you get to the end of this book. I q

It’s been several months since my near back-to-back 100 Bullets reading spree, and I admit that I felt a little rusty when I first opened up this final volume in Azzarello and Risso’s audacious crime noir series. Let’s face it: the plot-threads in this mind-blowing and envelope-pushing saga are truly and viciously tangled. So much so that it almost gives you brain-freeze trying to figure out – if not remember – who’s back-stabbing whom. (And I do mean that back-stabbing part literally.)

This more a review for the entire series.

While the writer begins to tell an intriguing tale of deception, morality, and vengeance, it falls short of expectations. Early in the series Brian Azzarello loses control of the details, motivations, and ultimately the thrust behind the narrative. The reader is expected to follow along the trail of poorly conceived plot twists as characters, who have been steadfastly loyal in the past, seemingly switch sides or join forces with little reason beyond they

Overall, i am liking it, but it is overly convoluted....and kinda is a bit redundant in an elongated attempt to stretch out to 100 issues......if you like the main regular, recurring sopranos-like/tarrantino mob style characters, this is for you, but if you like the original premise of the mystery briefcase,the 100 bullets, and meeting the new random strangers, changing characters anthology-style, whose lives are affected by it, and then their story is wrapped, this is NOT for you, buy earlier v ...more

100 Bullets...where do I begin...I want to talk about it but I don't know if I can do justice to what Azzarello has crafted along with Risso.

The story brutal. Don't come looking for a happy ending. Don't come looking for heroes. Don't come looking for someone to root for.

There is a hardness and edge to all the art that plays perfectly with the story.

There are all these wonderful little vignettes that pop up and interact with the main story line in odd ways painting a messed up canvas that Tarant

If someone gave you the opportunity to kill the person who ruined your life with a 100 untraceable bullets would you take it?

If you took the opportunity to do so, could you live with yourself? What about the lives of the people you change or ruin with your action?

The series started with a bang (pun intended), and got me into graphic novels, but the conceit of a hundred stories about a hundred bullets and the labyrinthine tale that seemed never to end, simply got old and stale. And worse, the length of the series revealed the one-dimensional imagination of the creators: lots of blood, an entirely misanthropic view of the human condition, teenage boy-like obsession with Tetonesque women, lots of profanity and increasingly annoying attempts at reproducing t ...more

I think the book lost some of its appeal to me once it became more focused on the conspiracy and less on how the "100 bullets" were used on regular people to do the dirty work. That said the team does a good job of tying things up even if things are tied up in a fairly nihilistic way.
There's not much else I can say without spoiling things but I think most people will be satisfied with the ending and Risso finishes off his amazing run in style. It's a rare thing for this type of comic to reach 10

Ending like a Shakespearean tragedy with all your principal characters killing each other during the final curtain, the final chapters of "100 Bullets" close the book on The Trust, The Minutemen and an attempted coup with a second generation Trust at the helm.
The overwritten chattiness of the dialogue plus the incessant double-crosses get to be tiring in book form but Eduardo Risso's dynamic images keep the story moving better than the plotting.
Personally I felt the series jumped the shark whe

Þokkalegur endir á sögunni, allir lenda einhverstaðar. Mér þótti Dizzy og Loop haga sér frekar undarlega þarna í lokin; það hefur verið púsluspil að lenda sögunni akkúrat á þessari lokasíðu en bókin var alltaf high concept og búið við einhverjum stellingum. Það er allt í lagi.

Wow - what an end. Azzarello is a magician - like the brilliant Risso sub-story background that have had me flipping back to see where they began, its the hand that we weren't watching that the drives the finale.

I know this series went on for years, but volume 11 with whitling down of the cast to final players was the pledge, volume 12 was the turn and volume 13 was the prestige. I could go back through and chart out the courses to find the clues and hints, but I don't want to - I am happy just

After following this series for nearly 10 years it finally comes to an end. The panels, ink and pencils have been consistently good to amazing but the plot, dialogue and characters tends to the arcane. Azzarello, to often, attempts to string together various scenes under a single, overarching conversation and the results are hit and miss. There are moments in this last collection, however, when the art and writing work together and the results are thrilling. You get the sense that Azarello was n ...more

I suppose Azzarello ended his 100-issue run the only way he could, very definitively tying up all loose ends. However, there were so many plot threads out there to tie up, on top of the smaller, thematically-but-not-directly-related sideplots sprinkled liberally throughout, I had trouble remembering what was going on. Like I had abandoned a chess game halfway through and came back not recalling why the pieces on the board were arranged that way.

One day I'll try and reread the whole series in on

Le tre stelle finali sono forse il risultato di un certo disinteresse che ho iniziato a provare per le vicende del Trust, dei Minutemen e compagnia criminale da un certo punto in poi della serie.
Preferisco Azzarello quando si dedica al piccolo sottobosco. La sua capacità di osservare e descrivere quel mondo mi sembra il vero pregio di 100 proiettili.
Quanto a Risso, beh... è superlativo dalla prima all'ultima vignetta.

What an ending.

After keeping you guessing for 100 issues, 100 Bullets ends with an almost mathematical precision, as all the pieces fall into the places spelled out for them practically from the very beginning of the series. And how satisfying it is, that after almost disappearing from the series, the attache cases, filled with with the titular bullets, make such a stunning and crucial comeback.

A staggering achievement, and I want to sit down and read it all over again.

A great end to a fantastic series - even if I did come out the other end still feeling a little confused...
100 Bullets is, for my money, absolutely *begging* for HBO/Showtime TV series: one where minor yet crucial characters in the story can be fully fleshed out, the history of the Minutemen and The Trust explored more deeply (maybe with Lost-style flashbacks), and more 'standalone' attache case stories can be peppered throughout. It could easily be the new Sopranos.

100 Bullets entire review: This is like a Tarantino movie, and I don't like him that much. You can see the ending coming from far away, it is probably the only one that could be done.

During the entire serie, I kind of felt lost, too many characters (that kind of look the same and have absolutely the same function, too many side stories.

it is decent, but nothing more
