The best part of 100 Bullets is the characters — just don’t get too attached to any of them.
As the second half of this planned 100 issue series kicks off, writer Brian Azzarello and artist Eduardo Risso keep the edge on this gritty series by upping the body count.
Based on the original premise of the mysterious Agent Graves showing up in people’s lives and giving them a gun and 100 untraceable bullets, along with proof of the person who wronged them, the series has evolved into a complex and gripping mix of crime and mystery.
In The Hard Way, the revelations and bodies keep piling up as ex-con Wylie Times tries to sort out his sordid past in the city of New Orleans.
When all is said and done, Wylie finds out the brutal truth and the cost is the life of one of the book’s central characters.
