Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In this dark and intriguing trade paperback, the mysterious Agent Graves approaches ordinary citizens and gives them an opportunity to exact revenge on a person that has wronged them. Offering his clients an attaché case containing proof of the deed and a gun, he guarantees his "clients" full immunity for all of their actions, including murder. In these opening chapters, Dizzy Cordova, a Latina gangbanger who has just finished a prison sentence, is given the chance to avenge her family's murders, and a downtrodden bartender receives the opportunity to exact revenge against the woman that ruined his life.

Synopsis:

What would you do if you were given the opportunity and the means to get away with murder, scot-free? That's the question posed in "100 bullets", a new graphic novel that combines elements of hard-boiled crime stories and paranoid espionage thrillers as the mysterious Agent Graves offers his "clients" a gun and immunity from prosecution, enabling them to get revenge against those who ruined their lives...if they decide to go through with it.

Description:

100 BULLETS follows what happens when people from all walks of life meet Agent Graves, a mysterious figure who offers his "clients" the opportunity of a lifetime: an attaché case containing the proof, the gun, and the carte blanche immunity to exact revenge on a person who's done them irrevocable wrong. In the series' groundbreaking first storyline, the 3-part "100 Bullets," Dizzy Cordova, a Latina gangbanger just released from a women's prison, is given the attaché and the chance to avenge her family's deaths in what proves to be part of a web of betrayal, blood and corruption. In "Shot, Water Back," Agent Graves offers a down-on-his-luck bartender the chance to even the score with the woman who seemingly ruined his life. And finally, learn what happens when one of Graves's "clients" attempts to confess to a killing she committed with the "magic" bullets in "Silencer Night," the 8-page WINTER'S EDGE story.

Gaiman is the man of Lore, Moore the man of plot twists, Azarello masters violence.
In this thought provoking series, A man known simply as Agent Graves provides every day people with a Attache' with an untraceable gun, 100 bullets that simply come back from crime labs as "Do not follow up," and irrefutable evidence than someone somewhere was really the cause for the destruction and unhappiness in their lives. This series asks the question "If you could get away with murder, would you?"

What would you do if you had the opportunity to get away with murder? In 100 Bullets, a shady figure called Agent Graves gives individuals the means to kill a person who wronged them in the past: 100 rounds of ammunition, an untraceable gun, and immunity from law enforcement. So what's the catch? Turns out the catch is different for everyone.

I first came in contact with Azzarello during his run on Hellblazer, which was bizarre but monstrously compelling, and was enough to make me want to check out his other projects. I'm glad I picked this up, and I'll definitely be reading more of this series.
