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.
"Sinopsis" puede pertenecer a otra edición de este libro.
Suppose that you're given incontrovertible proof that you've been wronged by someone--seriously, grievously wronged. And then suppose that you're also given a handgun, a hundred bullets, and complete assurance that however you choose to use this information--and this gun--you won't be held accountable, won't go to jail, won't pay any price for exacting revenge.
Throw in a secret society, some low-life gamblers, a couple gangland executions, and a healthy dose of Thai boxing, Gracie jujitsu, and other assorted violence (not to mention sex) and you've got one of DC's most compelling comic-book series to come along in years. This trade paperback collects issues 6 through 14 of Vertigo's 100 Bullets series, so you might want to check out the first collection, First Shot, Last Call, if you haven't already. Fans will be happy to find that Split Second Chance clears up some of the questions surrounding the mysterious Agent Graves and the equally enigmatic Minutemen. But as one of the Trust's pawns later learns, "Asking questions is free... but the answers--they can cost you your life." --Paul HughesAbout 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. Azzarello’s other work for DC includes Hellblazer and Loveless with Marcelo Frusin; Dark Knight III: The Master Race with Frank Miller, Andy Kubert, and Klaus Janson; Superman: For Tomorrow with Jim Lee; Joker and Luthor with Lee Bermejo; Sgt. Rock: Between Hell and A Hard Place with Joe Kubert; Filthy Rich with Victor Santos; and most recently the all-new ongoing series Wonder Woman with Cliff Chiang.
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.
