This thread is obviously for comic fans, and if you aren't one, stay right here.

100 Bullets is a monthly title that is released by Vertigo/DC, written by Brian Azzarello and drawn by Eduardo Rizzo. All I can say without getting entirely into depth is, If HBO had a comic book series, this would be it.

A guy in a suit comes out of nowhere. Knows everything about you, includind a big time wrong commited against you. He gives you an attache case with irrefutable evidence of the person who fucked your life up, 100 rounds of untraceable ammo and a pistol...and a choice you have to make.

I know this sounds like a shill, but trust me, I only read super hero books, but now, I am HOOKED. Comments?

Boy, raw tenth anniversary? Bullshit. Kinda makes it not worth it, don't it.

I've only recently been getting into the non-superhero books, and this was one of the titles that got me to start that trend. It's actually funny that you mentioned it here, because I just re-read the second TPB last night. This is indeed a beautifully done, dark, gritty, street-level narrative, kind of a modern day noir piece. It's got some of the best characters in all of comics right now (Dizzy Cordova rules!), and both components of the plot, the Trust/Minutemen conspiracy thing, and the more self-contained, individual revenge tales, are really engaging, and the dialogue is so well done, it's easy to forget how difficult it is to write the street-style slang and make it sound natural. This book has been amazing, and I'm looking forward to what's next.

For those of you who want to check it out, but don't like hunting down back issues, there are four trade paperbacks out there (hopefully, the fifth one is coming soon) and they're all between $10 and $15 each. Definitely worth a look.

I keep meaning to pick this title up, but every time I look all I seem to find are volumes 2 and 3 of the trades, and I hate entering a story mid stream...

The premise sounds very cool though, kind of like the old tv show The Millionare only with a gun & bullets instead of a large check...

I've been reading it since issue 2. A wonderfully done crime comic. My only complaint is that the Counterfith Detective story arc seemed like it dragged on forever when it was coming out monthly...

What I don't think has been said yet is, the people who own the book and wanted the remake came to Tim Burton. They wanted him to redo it so it was thier idea and TIm Burton was the guy they wanted.
