100 Bullets Finale!1 avril 2009
[ENGLISH] Vertigo tells us: The highly anticipated final issue of 100 BULLETS (Vertigo / 48 pages / color / $4.99) by Chicago writer Brian Azzarello (Joker) and Argentinean artist Eduardo Risso hits stores April 15th. Nearly a decade in the making, 100 BULLETS is one of the longest running comic book series to be produced, without interruption, by the same writer, artist and cover artist, Dave Johnson.
“The self-contained, beautiful and uncompromising little crime stories . . . [are] often astonishing.
Azzarello is remarkably talented at capturing dialect.” —THE NEW YORK TIMES BOOK REVIEW
“An ink-dark series about consequence-free revenge”
—THE New York Times Style Magazine
“A meditation on money, power and morality . . . for our money, the best current ongoing series.”
“The story has it all: flawed protagonists, dirty cops, conspiracy, guns and
that big mistake that makes it all go wrong.” —Chicago Tribune
“Azzarello’s harsh, twisty plotlines and tough-as-nails dialogue mesh with Risso’s equally stylish and dark illustrations in the most seamless marriage of script and art in collaboratively created mainstream comics.”
This Eisner and Harvey Award-winning comic book series has garnered significant critical acclaim from the literati, artists, crime publications and the comic trade press alike. It has also found high profile fans in comic superstars Jim Steranko, Howard Chaykin, Jim Lee, and Darwyn Cooke, novelists Greg Rucka and Jason Starr, and Tom Fontana, writer for HBO’s OZ.
Please join us in celebrating this momentous occasion and the climactic conclusion.
