100 Bullets: The Deluxe Edition Book I, by Eduardo Risso, Brian Azzarello, Dave Johnson

3.0

This is such a great concept, with kind of a cringy execution in my opinion.

The visual storytelling is wonderful. Pane-to-pane there is a lot happening that is easily missed if you're not paying much attention. But the dialogue, especially for black and latinx characters is handled so poorly, and all of the female characters are insanely male-gazy. I get that this is twenty years old now, and has to be seen through that lens, but it's still pretty disappointing.

But, wow, this story and concept is so insanely good that I have to keep reading. It's mostly an anthology with loose threads connecting each story, but those threads are tightening and depending on how this laces us, it could be an absolute classic.
