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.

Format: Paperback
If you were offered the chance to the kill the person who murdered your family or destroyed your life, and get away with it no questions asked: would you do it? That’s the offer Agent Graves, a mysterious man with an untraceable gun and 100 bullets, presents to Dizzy, a recently released Latina former gang member whose husband and baby were gunned down by corrupt cops, and Lee, a bartender whose happily married and prosperous life was destroyed by false criminal allegations.

Brian Azzarello’s morality story plays out convincingly and not entirely predictably. There is the usual “is this for real?” doubt going back and forth in the story over the odd situation Graves presents her with and, while Dizzy did do what I knew she was going to by the end of her arc, there was a surprise element thrown in that I didn’t see coming. Similarly with Lee’s storyline, you expect it to go one way and then it goes a different way and then ends in another way.

I don’t know anyone whose life is like Dizzy’s so can’t speak to the authenticity of the dialogue and values – it often felt a lot like parts of The Wire – but it didn’t seem fake. The conversation amongst the Latina characters given their socio-economic backgrounds seemed realistic.

Eduardo Risso’s art is as perfect as ever. There’s great use of shadows to accentuate characters’ entrances, the pages are imaginative with traditional panelling thrown out in favour of more dynamic layouts with backgrounds from one scene bleeding into another. The character designs are cartoonish and angular at times but in a way that’s visually appealing, eye-catching and memorable.

So why aren’t I raving about this book? It is decently written and well-illustrated. Except it never really drew me in.

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.

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.

By A. Ross TOP 500 REVIEWER on 22 Feb. 2006
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.
