Description

The second trade paperback in the 100 BULLETS line, this book resumes the tale of the mysterious Agent Graves who offers ordinary wronged people the opportunity to kill with impunity using 100 bullets that he supplies them with. But even as Agent Graves continues to approach and manipulate his "clients," questions about the ghoulish agent start to arise as people from his past begin to appear, revealing interesting information about their former acquaintance. In the end though, these facts only lead to different questions as the mystery behind Agent Graves' motives deepens.


About the Author

Brian Azzarello has been writing comics professionally since the mid-1990s. He is the author of Jonny Double, Batman: Broken City, and the Harvey and Eisner Award-winning 100 Bullets, all created in collaboration with artist Eduardo Risso.

A native of Leones, Argentina, Eduardo Risso began drawing professionally in 1981. Risso spent many years working in Argentina as well as Europe before breaking into American comics in 1997. He worked with writer Brian Azzarello on the 1998 Vertigo miniseries Jonny Double, which began a partnership that continues to this day. Risso and Azzarello’s work on Jonny Double led directly to their partnership on 100 Bullets. Since then the duo have joined forces on the DC graphic novel Batman: Broken City, Batman: Knight Of Vengeance, and the Vertigo limited series Spaceman. Risso's work on 100 Bullets has earned him four Eisner Awards, two Harvey Awards, and the Yellow Kid Award. Currently, Risso is back on a hunt for vengeance with Azzarello on the Vertigo limited series 100 Bullets: Brother Lono.
