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?"


Noir- and action-intensive characters and storylines are highlighted in this fresh-angled, plot-twisty take on the vengeance theme. Fans of crime fiction will likely have a dark-hearted ball with this one.

Excellent, landmark comic book series - worth owning.

Followed by 100 Bullets: Split Second Chance.
