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 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.

I cant begin to start tp tell you whay a journey this is. This graphic novel transcends what your first reaction to a comic will be. Straight up crome noir done with amazing detail! This book is a classic if you dont get it contact me and i will set you straight this is great writing!

I enjoyed the artwork, but there didn't seem to be enough content for me. Reminded me of quick anime books to read while eating chow mein in Little Tokyo, just a time filler. It went too quick, like a Cheeto.

I cannot get over how good this series is. It definently deserves a place on anyone's bookshelf. Even though it appears to be an ordinary crime drama, '100 Bullets' turns out to be anything but. An interesting thing about this series is how the Brian Azzarello(writer)takes minor characters from previous stories and makes them the protagonists in later issues. Eduardo Risso's artwork is amazing and suits the story and style very well. Read the whole series, and then read it again.

I went into 100 Bullets expecting it to be relatively good, but overall, a Tarantino-esque comic book. I was partially right, but someow, this intrigued me a lot more. I loved how it used more drama then gory action to convey the story. Cordova's story was brilliant, and the art was hypnotic. A deffinite purchase. The story concludes a little weak, with the story of Lee being a bit flat, and a little bit TOO vague. However, the conclusion was mind boggling, and leads into the next chapter of the stories, 'Split Second Chance'
