It’s hard to know whom to root for sometimes in 100 Bullets.
All the characters are killers. Most are unrepentant and even cruel bastards.
And worst of all, whenever someone shows a glimmer of humanity and you think you’ve figured out who to get behind, writer Brian Azzarello kills that character off!
As this series spirals towards its 100th, and final, issue in 2008, all these lovely dominoes that Azzarello and artist Eduardo Risso have been setting up are ripe to fall.
Agent Graves has rounded up his band of former Minutemen and is set to take them to war against the houses of the Trust, the killers’ former employers.
There’re just a few bits of housekeeping to do first — including a mission that will take out yet another starring cast member.
Even after seven years, every twist 100 Bullets takes still catches you off guard and with the war on the horizon faithful readers are sure to be in for a bloody good time seeing who’ll survive.
