One of the Most Movie-Like Comic Books Ever Created- - SarahVespes
This is of course by now a notorious series.
Anyone familiar With Risso's artwork and Azzarello's other collaborations with him preceding 100 Bullets will not be disappointed, but will still be surprised at the rich character development, serpentine plot and murky moral universe populated by criminals, authorities, agents and "innocent bystanders."
In the world of premiere issues in comics, this is a standout. It paints a twilight American world so completely, so specifically that readers will not question the hard approach by Risso to the graphics [heavy black areas, absolute contrast in shadow versus light].
It'd be too easy to spoil this plot so I won't state the premise; but if you appreciate the writing of James Elroy or films like A Blast of Silence, this comic book series offers a related unromantic narrative world of violence and personal doom.
