100 Bullets: First Shot, Last Call by Brian Azzarello & Eduardo Risso
(pb; 2000: graphic novel, which collects 100 Bullets, issues 1-5, and Winter's Edge 3, the third annual anthology put out by the Vertigo imprint)
From the back cover:
"If a stranger offered you a chance to get away with murder. . . would you take it?"

Excellent, landmark comic book series - worth owning.
Followed by 100 Bullets: Split Second Chance.
