Book review: 100 Bullets: Brother Lono

100 Bullets: Brother Lono by Brian Azzarello and Eduardo Risso. My rating: 4 of 5 stars. Turns out you can’t kill an enormous hard-arse that easily. I mean, we’re talking about Lono here – assassin, arsehole and walking slab o’ beef – so it shouldn’t be surprising that he’s still alive. He wasn’t exactly comprehensively erased […]

Book review: 100 Bullets: The Deluxe Edition Book V

100 Bullets: The Deluxe Edition Book V by Brian Azzarello and Eduardo Risso. My rating: 4 of 5 stars. Well, here we are. The end of the story. The last sprint to the finish. And as expected, there’s blood and boobs and, well, bullets. And is it satisfying? How can I put this? Yeah nah. […]

Book review: 100 Bullets: The Deluxe Edition Book IV

100 Bullets: The Deluxe Edition Book IV by Brian Azzarello and Eduardo Risso. My rating: 4 of 5 stars. From what I gather of other reviewers’ feelings, the general position on this volume of the 100 Bullets saga – issues 59 through 80 – is confusion. A feeling of confusion over what’s going on, where […]

Book review: 100 Bullets: The Deluxe Edition Book III

100 Bullets: The Deluxe Edition Book III by Brian Azzarello and Eduardo Risso. My rating: 5 of 5 stars. It’s time to descend, once more, into the world of noir. Bullets, broads, and a buttload of blood. But this is 100 Bullets so by this point in the collection, your squeamishness has either seen you […]

Book review: 100 Bullets: The Deluxe Edition Book II

100 Bullets: The Deluxe Edition Book II by Brian Azzarello and Eduardo Risso. My rating: 5 of 5 stars. It’s time for ghetto arsekickers, Italian-descent mobsters, the neon of gambling, the prick of the needle and the luck of the draw. It’s time for losers who think they’re winners, and winners who’ve got fuck-all. And […]

Book review: 100 Bullets: The Deluxe Edition Book I

100 Bullets: The Deluxe Edition Book I by Brian Azzarello and Eduardo Risso. My rating: 5 of 5 stars. What would you do if you were cornered by a craggy-looking dude with a briefcase? A briefcase that’s meant for you? A briefcase that contains some papers, a pristine gun and a number of untraceable bullets? […]

2019 consumption: a look at some stuff I liked

So here we are again. Once more, it’s the point of the year where I write a usually-lengthy post about the things I’ve enjoyed this year. I write a bunch of stuff about the cultural bits and pieces I’ve consumed through the year and figure out what was good and what wasn’t, in the hope […]
