All interesting questions that keep you reading.But I had two problems.

On top of it the relationships between characters, like mother daughter, father son, some of them felt woefully forced and one dimensional.

I did not " feel " nor really care about the interaction between many of these people, they felt flaky and fell flat.Yeah, I kind of need to know what Graves is up to.

Some good moments in the omic but not enough depth to the protagonist, strong enough dialogue, nor enough interest in the rt for me to keep going on this one.

In that sense I am reminded of really great TV but surely only HBO would go near anything this violent, seedy and grim; and not everyone would be hesitant to interact with content that looks at the damaged and downtrodden, the fringes of society and the ghostlike Graves, who appears to be the mastermind behind an international organisation that puts an untraceable gun and 100 bullets in a suitcas and offers them immunity if they decide to seek evenge on those that have wronged them in the past.I sure am pleased that I ended up reading this deluxe edition from my local library as the first section was not omething I would have carried on reading if I 'd only picked up the first trade paperback like I thought I had ordered.

The people approached are necessarily damaged little fuckers with their own back story and the varied responses to the proposition is one of the more fascinating and thought provoking aspects of the story.I have some ssues with the dialogue, especially when Azzarello shoots for local colour, page after page of irritating gang bangers and fake Jamaicans for example, it might work in audio form but in this nove it felt forced and unnatural.

I initially thought this would a crime anthology showcasing different characters every story arc but Azzarello is dropping hints of a larger conspiracy interwoven with this work.

Pretty much it ’ s an anthology and all of the novels are connected through that.Pros: The fifth tal in this ook about the bartender is actually pretty good and well written.The story about the ice cream man was really well done.The story about the waitress who ’ s cousin was missing is well written and has an unexpected twist.The action scenes are fantastic!

Out of the genr I read I expect the crime stuff to be a bit more ( though not entirely) realistic unless there ’ s some sor of sci-fi/horror elements ( which this doesn ’ t include) so getting into a hyped up crime comic that ’ s completely unrealistic was very disappointing.The first story in this novel is terrible.

Uninteresting, poorly written and mostly predictable.There ’ s a short little Christmas story that makes almost no sense and has barely anything to do with the book.The story about the gambler is kinda dumb.The story in France is dumb and pretty much anything that most readers have seen before, just poorly written.The final story was okay at first: there was a mix of things I loved and things I hated but then it has the worst ending possible.

The way this book sexualizes women in almost every scene is kinda f***ed up and seems a bit sexist.There were several lines that were in foreign languages even though this is an American comic.A dog was killed for no reason in one of the saddest comic scenes I ’ ve ever read and that annoyed the f*** out of me.

100 Bullets is a " gritty " crime noir story with a twist.

But the overall tory of the gun w/bullets, the mystery behind Graves and XIII and the underlying potential for a different ort of crime noir story makes this a three star rating.

I hope the art improves, the tal is interesting enough but not omething I shall be needing to read.

A different crime noir story.

I get that this is twenty years old now, and has to be seen through that lens, but it 's still pretty disappointing.But, wow, this story and concept is so insanely good that I have to keep reading.

I 've read a decen proportio of crime comics.

Talk about hard boiled.

Jason Latour and Sean Phillips destroy this artwork for crime drama.

As epic as its vision portends, the thick page count is truly deserving of its Herculean appearance.

More often than not, the epic structure Azzarello and Co. are reaching for would have been more effective with a salutary dose of concision.
