100 Bullets: Six Feet Under the Gun – Brian Azzerello

100 Bullets 06This book contains six one-shot stories, each dedicated to a single person. Some are characterful, some confusing and some deal with the bigger picture. And yes, there is one about Graves.

It is a different format and Azzarello works well with shorter stories. He is also on top of his game with the art direction and there is some great cutting between panels and narratives. His work is so much more sophisticated and filmic than most mainstream creators today. Read it slowly and savour the details.

The art is great stuff and Mulvihill gets a chance to shine with plenty of nocturnal scenes and a fabulous sunset. Even her daytime colouring is so much snappier than most, yet it still retains that Noirish, shadowy feel essential for the genre.

Another in a long line of Thumbs Up!
