5.0 out of 5 stars As Good As It Gets 4 July 2007
By voldog
Format:Paperback
First Shot, Last Call is the begining of a long and unbelievable ride. Unbelievably smart,ncredibly original and thoroughly ingauging unlike any comic i've read...ever.
Usually i hate to build things up like that. So whynow? Because Azzarello and Risso deliever every time. I've been reading comics a long time and I can tell you that this is different. It's smart. It's gritty and it's good. Azzarello's writing is top notch. Why he hasn't done movies or novels is beyond me. 100 bullets reads like a movie. You actually believe the characters. His writing makes you believe.
As for Risso, it took me some time to appreciate what he does but believe me, it is brilliant. He is easily in my top 3 of all time. While it isn't polished or neat as a lot of popular artists it is more real and realized than almost any artist. His story telling is second to none and his use of black ink and shadowing is flawless. You know his characters not because they wear a familiar costume but because you KNOW what they look like.
I can't say enough about this series to really express how much i have enjoyed every aspect of it. However, is there any other team that has been together this long? 100 bullets, 100 issues. Same writer, artist and cover artist. If this were an HBO series everyone one would be watching it. So what are you waiting for? BUY THIS NOW!!! If you like good noir you are in for a treat. "Trust" me.

5.0 out of 5 stars Freaking amazing 11 Aug 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
I love this book.
The simplest concept, 100 bullets, an untraceable gun, conclusive proof of someone who has wronged you and carte-blanche to do what you like.
Add in fantastic dialogue that is snappy, shocking and hilarious, visuals that will blow your mind and engrossing story with so many twists and turns that you'll feel dizzy.
Each book in this series, 13 in total, takes you deeper into a vast plot that is expertly developed and ridiculously engrossing, without ever loosing the quick readability of each book.
You will come back to this series time and time again just for the sheer pleasure of reading the dialogue and enjoying the visuals.

5.0 out of 5 stars Black gender in your bookshelf. 16 Sep 2002
By Ryosuke
Format:Paperback
Although maybe you can be on a first place dissapointed with the so perssonal work of Eduardo Risso, the team of this comic will surely change your mind. Brian Azzarello writes the script as if it was a movie, and Eduardo Risso draws the scenes with a very fluid style. The result is greatly joyful, with stories apparently unconnected but with a common nexus: who is Graves, and why is he doing what he does? Who are his enemies and who his allies?
This book compiles the first numbers of "100 Bullets" series. Award-winning of the Eisner prize, it's a black gender comic I personally encourage to try. Very, very recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting Premise 22 Feb 2006
By A. Ross TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback
This what might be called a "high concept" series in Hollywood lingo. A mysterious man in black shows up and gives you proof that a particular person has wronged you badly in the past, an untraceable gun, 100 bullets, and license to kill that person. What do you do? The answer isn't as simple as one might suspect, as the first two stories demonstrate. In the first one, we meet Dizzy, a Latina gangster just released from jail and bitter from the death of her man and her son in a drive-by shooting. Back on the streets of Chicago after a few years served, she's sad and seeking to live a straight life. But of course, you can't leave the gangster world behind that easily, and her brother's rise to prominence as a local gang-banger sucks her back in. It also doesn't help that the two cops the man in black fingered as having done the drive-by are in her face, giving her a lot of static. The art is pretty nifty stuff, perfect for the genre, with a great muted wash to the colors. The only lame part is that the women are all comic-booky, with huge breasts and bared midriffs -- pretty cheesy. The dialogue never really rings true, as all the "we got bidness", "knowhumsayin'" and "I ain't playin'" sounds more like something lifted from some tired film than it does real life. The characters are the familiar gangster hoodlums types and none are given any interesting nuances, nor does the story get interesting until the last few panels, which leave the door open for Dizzy to reappear later on in the series.
The second storyline is somewhat stronger, as we meet down and out Los Angeles bartender Lee Dolan. The man in black shows up and offers him the chance to get even with the woman who set him up on kiddie porn charges.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome 18 May 2004
Format:Paperback
I first saw this book in my local comics shop. I was interested in it, but I was skeptical, and didn't buy it. When I finally did get hold of a copy, I was enthralled. Amazing artwork, superb plotlines, and characters you can actually root for. One thing though, I found ithard to translate the street language used in the first story, but with a bit of thought, I got it sorted. The first story is a scorcher, with a neat little twist in the tale, and a cool climax. The second story is twice as good, with a violent yet toching plot, and leaves the reader with an ar of mystery at the end. If you read it, you'll find out what I mean. It also comes with a short story from Veryigo: Winter's Edge. As soon as I had finished it, I went out and got a copy of 100 Bullets 2, which was even better.

Loving the 100 Bullets saga. I'd recommend this series to any fan of either comic books or crime fiction. The artwork is superb and the writing is dead on.

This is very good stuff. Modern crime drama with a noirish twist. Reminiscent of Ed Brubaker's Criminal series but with a grungier, baser feel to it. Read more

Ridden with cliches and 1 dimensional characters. Completely rushed stories with no real weight or clarity to the action. Everything that's bad about commercial comics. Read more
