What: 100 Bullets: Hang Up on the Hang Low

Who: By Brian Azzarello and Eduardo Risso.

When: Originally published in 2000-2001 by Vertigo/DC Comics.

Where: Comic and book stores. (Why do I include this one?)

Why: It’s 100 Bullets, I don’t even need to write this. This five issue arc continues building on the themes and mythology of the series, but this time it’s in Philly! The City of Brotherly Love, as rendered by the master cartoonist Risso, provides the perfect backdrop for Azzarello’s tale of a son who is given the opportunity to meet (or murder) the father he never knew. A crime comic with family as the major theme seems a bit odd, but it works. And how. Obviously you don’t want to start reading this comic with the third volume, but you could read this arc all on its own. It’s that good. I’ll probably be stopping at a book store tomorrow for volume 4.
