    • So this wasn't as good as I had initially hoped. Don't let that stop you though - you need to read it to get into 100 Bullets, and once you do it just keeps getting better.If you like crime drama and gritty noir-ish comics, this is for you. Premise goes like this: dude shows up with an attache with 100 untraceable bullets, a gun, and irrefutable evidence that somebody did something bad to you - the cause of your misfortune. He offers it to you, saying that whatever you chose to do with it, you'l [...]

    • Wrote 100 Bulleys up there by accident, now that's a premise!Mysterious dudes hand out briefcases with a gun and 100 untraceable bullets in it to various low-lifes, giving them motive and opportunity to reek retribution on the peeps that done them wrong.Solid premise, mediocre follow through. First story's in a Chicago barrio and suffers from various embarrassing stereotypes that I could live with, but has sort of an obvious ending. The art's okay (though not so great the artist should be signin [...]

    • I heard nothing about this except that it's going to be a movie or series? And Tom Hardy.Other than that, the story itself sound interesting and something I hadn't of heard before. The art style you get used to, though the in between chapters, the art is a little better. The characters I'm not sure about. I was a little confused at first, but once you get reading, its alright. Overall, an interesting premise to a series I might read more from.

    • 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 gangbanger whose husband and baby were gunned down by corrupt cops, and Lee, a bartender whose happily married and prosperous life was destroyed by false paedophilia allegations. Brian Azzarello [...]

    • Loved it. I don't know if they get into the background of Mr. Graves later in the series, but the premise of the first volume stood well all by itself. Two stories in this, the first is excellent if somewhat predictable, but after reading the second story the first felt almost like a red-herring setup, a way to tell you "yes, this book, like all other entertainment properties, is going to go pretty much the way you expect." The second story changed that perception, and even made the first story [...]

    • This was a fun noir-ish crime/mystery story. There's something about it that's almost nostalgic - it has that gritty and rough-around-the-edges feel of early Vertigo and late 90s/early 2000s comics. It was probably quite edgy for its time and I can't imagine there was much else like it on the market. In comparison to what's available now, I would say that this hasn't aged super well - there are much better noir/crime comics out there, but this is a fun ride nonetheless. This first volume is almo [...]

    • A strange man approaches you and offers you a briefcase. You've been gravely wronged in the past, and the briefcase contains absolute proof of who wronged you, a gun, and 100 untraceable bullets. What do you do?And that's the main point of 100 Bullets, putting a series of characters into that situation and giving them the choice. And being flawed people who are dealing with a dramatic revelation, they make flawed choices. Azzarello was good at that, making these people and their decisions believ [...]

    • 100 Bullets was a monthly comic book. Reading it that way was like plucking your pubes one-by-one, because the overall story arc was so complex that it makes 'Lost' look like an episode of 'According to Jim.' EVERYTHING matters in 100 Bullets, and my little brain couldn’t keep track of things on a monthly basis. So I stopped reading it monthly, waited for the series to finish and picked up all 13 collected editions, planning to read it all in one sitting, more or less. A two week ‘one-sittin [...]

    • Along with his contemporary Ed Brubaker, Azzarello is one of the great crime noir/thriller writers in the comics medium today. With the first volume, I admit that I wasn’t entirely sure if his writing was completely to my liking. The first story-arc in volume one centers on Isabelle “Dizzy” Cordova who, having just been released from several years of hard time for a crime that she didn’t commit, is approached by the mysterious Agent Graves. In this ominous encounter, Graves offers her th [...]

    • The tale of a mysterious man who approaches people who have been wronged and gives them the chance to enact revenge with untraceable guns and 100 bullets, as well as hard evidence on the person who did them wrong and where they can be found. Interesting play of light and darkness as well as the play on the noir genre angles. CHARACTERS/DIALOGUE: B minus to B; ARTWORK: B; STORY/PLOTTING: B minus to B; OVERALL GRADE: B minus to B; WHEN READ: end of January 2012.

    • It's a promising start.Vol 1 contains 2 stories.First story is about former gang member who's husband and son where killed by corrupt cops, second is about waiter who's life is destroyed when he is falsely accused of pedophilia.They both where very enjoyable but far from great.It also has slightly obscure visual style in dark pastel colors that fit story well.Overall it is nice noir comic but not good enough to compete with best.

    • More 3.5*It was interesting but it didn't blow me away. I liked the premise and was intrigued to see what the characters would have done. I do wanna keep reading them because Graves is dodgy and I want to know all about him.

    • Eh, it was okay? 2.5 starsI picked this up just to see if it could change my mind on Azzarello. I wasn't a big fan of his Wonder Woman story but I feel like I need more than that before I just write him off entirely. Unfortunately, 100 Bullets hasn't really changed my mind. The basic premise, at least for this first volume, is that there is a (presumably) government agency that offers certain down on their luck people a chance for revenge. An agent shows up and offers a briefcase containing proo [...]

    • Brian Azzarello and Eduardo Risso’s 100 Bullets is more hype than substance thus far. Throughout the 100 total issues of 100 Bullets, the mysterious Agent Graves approaches people who’ve had their lives ruined by nefarious means. The victims get info on who did them wrong, a handgun with 100 untraceable bullets, and, oh yeah, full immunity for whatever revenge they want to take. First Shot, Last Call collects issues 1-5 in the series. This early on, you don’t get Graves’ secret motivatio [...]

    • Volume 1 in this Eisner award winning series seems like a good intro to a larger story - just a small taste to intrigue you. The premise is simple: a mysterious Agent Graves offers a suitcase to people who have been wronged. Inside this suitcase is a gun, 100 untraceable bullets, and information about whoever wronged the target. The three stories in this volume show three targets and their different reactions. It's definitely all questions and no answers at this point, and I'm looking forward to [...]

    • My Brief Bookshelf Overview: grim, story-not-intriguing-enough, violentAdditional Notes: This collection contains 100 Bullets issues #1-5.ABSOLUTE RATING: 2.5/5 stars (Rounded Down)STANDARDIZED RATING: <2/5 stars>The first volume of 100 Bullets reads like a typical noir tale, but lacks almost any charm whatsoever. It was a chore to wade through the dialogue, most of which was written in an inner-city ghetto dialect. And while not altogether terrible, Risso's crummy art only adds to the d [...]

    • Billed as crime realism, I found this merit to be limited to the dialogue. No one has superpowers and our protagonists balk, blunder and wrestle with ethics, all of which is good. However the central conceit is as far-fetched as the next comic with powerful, shadowy figures pulling the strings.I may continue with this series in the future, but am not chomping at the bit. After the main two storylines, I was ready to let it go. Then near the end, these and several other loose threads were tied to [...]

    • I have heard great things about this series but it was really just a chore to read this first volume. Maybe it's just the inevitable passage of time and the pitfalls of reading a book that wanted to be "current" nearly 20 years after it was written, but this whole book just felt like your dad trying to be cool. It's not just the weirdly unabashed racist stereotypes, or the rampant misogyny under the guise of being "noir," or the mastermind female hacker who was "just playing around on the net me [...]

    • One of four graphic novels I bought on recommendation from the guys at my comic shop--Buried Under Comics in Manchester, CT (which by the way is an awesome store).I had heard of the title before, but not much about it. The concept of the book is that a random(?) person who's been wronged in some way is given a briefcase with proof of another's guilt for said wrong, a gun, and 100 "untraceable" bullets by some shadow character with the ability to keep their resulting actions above the law.It's a [...]

    • I reread this because a student wanted our graphic novels/comics class should read it this term. I looked back at my original, admittedly quick and dismissive assessment of it where I thought it was an okay idea, and the execution of it more than competent, but I hadn't really cared. This was October 2012. So for his sake I reread it, more slowly, respecting his love of the series, and I felt pretty much the same way about it, but again, for his sake, will read on this time, as he suggests that [...]

    • Always on the lookout for what might turn HS kids away from digital media and onto reading, I stumbled upon this series. This seems to be a good fit for those kids who find and like The Barrio Kings, Yummy: The Last Days of a Southside Shorty, Street Pharm, and Unchained. This book holds three stories that are only connected in the loosest ways; the opening one is the longest and best: Dizzy is a sympathetic home girl. The second story is also good, though much shorter; the last story is shorter [...]

    • This is a morality piece - if you could kill the person who destroyed your life, no strings attached, would you? We are presented here with two entirely flawed characters who are given this choice, and we watch them struggle with their decision before they finally come to it. We then see the consequences of their actions unfold.The premise of the plot is good, and it's pretty interesting. This volume read like two short stories rolled up together, and although the assumption is that the second s [...]

    • Crime fiction, as a genre fascinates me, although I don't read a lot of it. Part of it's because it's rather uniquely named; science fiction stories, for example, contain fiction driven by science, and horror stories contain horrific elements, etc. A good Crime story, though, isn't really about crime at all - it's about Justice, and that is clearly the case wit 100 Bullets.There's an interesting moral question asked in the story, one that parallels Plato's Ring of Gyges myth; if you were given t [...]

    • What if you had an opportunity to to receive an untraceable gun and ammo, where you can kill those who were responsible for ruining your life??This is the premise of this book. I found that the artwork was a bit choppy, and disorganized at times, and the second story arc in this book to shift gears from the first's setup. Although I do like the premise of this book, I may continue, hoping that there may be more twists and turns to come.

    • This was horrid. And I don't say that lightly. It's not the subject matter - I'm just fine with noir. But it was clumsily executed, filled with cliches that were even worse than those one usually finds in this genre, flabbily written in the 'decompressed' writing style that dominates comics (which means it takes 100 pages to do what could be done in 23 with a more talented writer) and incomprehensible panel compositions made this a bloody tedious mess.

    • i've heard great stuff about this series and wanted to like it but I had a hard time getting into this first book. The ghetto talk with Dizzy's story was jarring and had the opposite effect of pushing me out of the story rather pulling me in. I'm sure Agent Graves story gets unfolded over the next 95 issues, but there are a lot of questions as to how this gun is untraceable, and why does everyone get 100 bullets, and does he ever get the gun and bullets back?

    • A man gives you a gun along with the name of people who have wronged you, and proof alongside that. The murder can not be traced back to you. What do you do? In the first volume you meet Dizzy, a mother whose partner and child were murdered, and Lee, a father of two who was framed for havig paedophilic images sent to him.This volume was really good, and I'm definitely carrying on with this series.

    • For a first volume in an ongoing crime series, it started off week, with a central character that I couldn't relate to, and the mysterious Agent Graves was just a little too mysterious. However, it did pick up toward the end of the arc, and the extra, seemingly unrelated, issues at the end did peak my curiosity and did keep me interested in the title, but I did have to force myself through the volume at times.

    • The premise of 100 Bullets upon cursory inspection seems intriguing. Until you really think about it, then you realize it really isn't anything. This first tbp is okay. The characters are meh, the plot is meh, but for some reason it makes me want to see more out of the concept.
