    • Going strong towards the big final act of the story, and I can't wait to see how Azarello and Risso are going to wrap it all up. Just three more volumes to go!This volume also featured a nice introduction by Darwyn Cooke, which was a pleasant surprise but also made me sad, because, you know. Fuck 2016.

    • It is with this volume, which collects issues 68-through-75, that I finally got myself a bit lost. (Shocking, but true.) Granted, the fact that Agent Graves is playing all of these characters off one another in his grand scheme to undermine the Trust and -- more specifically -- the House of Medici, is clearly still the underlying motive driving the basic plot of this series. But the double-crossing just gets plain more maddening with each new character that is added into the mix. (There really s [...]

    • This more a review for the entire series. While the writer begins to tell an intriguing tale of deception, morality, and vengeance, it falls short of expectations. Early in the series Brian Azzarello loses control of the details, motivations, and ultimately the thrust behind the narrative. The reader is expected to follow along the trail of poorly conceived plot twists as characters, who have been steadfastly loyal in the past, seemingly switch sides or join forces with little reason beyond they [...]

    • A lot of things happen without explanation in this volume. A lot of seemingly disjointed actions that one assumes come together in a later issue. But as that issue is not present in this volume, Vol 10 is pretty weak. 2.5

    • 3/4 of the way through this volume focuses on what would seem to be more peripheral characters, and not much obvious happens though there is a touch of gruesome violence along the way. All the plots seems to proceed in parallel, turning in themselves. Garves and Lono as warlords, pulling the strings in the power grab. Overall, this is a pretty amazing and memorable series.

    • 3/4 through, and motivations *still* unclear. the standard seems to be re-reading the entire series again immediately after finishingt sure it's worth it. it feels like this was a writing experiment, kinda like the "reimagined" battlestar galactica --and we all know how much that sucked. 100 issues is a long-ass time to conceal what's been teasing from the start, or for a readerto even remember all the little flashbacks to finally connect them. put out already!

    • Graves and the Trust begin putting the final wheels in motion. As Graves assembles his Minutemen, the Trust begins to close ranks and prepare for the worst. Not Azzarello's best volume, but the payoff for the long-running story is just around the corner.

    • I'm not entirely sure, what is going on in this Volume.The big storyline behind everything is moving so slowly towards something and it moves so slowly I have started to loose both interest and grip what the big storyline is.Othervice. the main story arc in this one that probably does not anything to do with the big storyline drags on way too long. Azzarello stories are better when they are one shots. Like the last one in this one. That was a reminder, how good 100Bullets is when it is good.

    • Waiting the finale now!Seeing young Graves was cool! :) Too much schemes and lines hope everything come together in a big bang.

    • This was the most confused mess I've seen yet seen in the series - the artistic rendering of Graves is such that I thought perhaps what we were seeing was something that had happened in the past, yet juxtaposed with something happening in the present. Very confusing. Doesn't help that you have no clue who it is exactly that you're reading about. Very poorly presented. Also troublesome was the amount of time wasted on characters who seem to have no relevance to the story. Wasted space and wasted [...]

    • Cleary it wasn't just me. Having marked this volume as 'completed', I then checked out some of the reviews. It seems I was not the only reader who found this particular instalment somewhat underwhelming. I like Azzarello's writing, I like Risso's unique graphic art work and I like the premise of this series ("what if you had access to a gun and a 100 untraceable bulletswho would you exact revenge upon?"). But this particular volume (collecting issues 68-75) was just a bit much - too many charact [...]

    • There are 2 multi-part story archs and an (apparently) 1 shot at the end. My Only "complaint" is a bit of violence that was on the queasy side again (but not to the extent of volume 9) in the otherwise excellent story of the final minuteman activation. Once again the story rips along in very sure directions with the art work able to tell entire side stories without a speach bubble.The 2 arch stories cover the activation of last Atlantic City minutemen and the consildation of the trust - I am get [...]

    • i have to say this series often probably warrants a five star review, but between the gaps of weeks or months between when i acquire and read each volume, i really lose track of characters. there are numerous characters, numerous plots, subplots, twists, and betrayals, and more than a few shadowed conversations in which i can't tell who is who. that said, i enjoy the hell out of it, and hope at some point i can read it in a more continuous fashion. and probably take notes. this is prime "active" [...]

    • You don't think 100 Bullets can get better and better as it goes on, but it DOES. This volume features a lot of flashbacks, fleshing out some backstory for Graves' early days. And for anyone who's been missing any of the characters struck down by Azzarello's vengeful quill, there are some very good scenes taking place with the full complement of the pre-Atlantic City Minutemen. We also get to meet the Rome brothers, filling out Azzarello's cast in full as the series marches to its final quarter. [...]

    • One of the many main characters, Loop, asks : 'What's happening ?'. And his companion replies he doesn't know. At this point the reader has little clues at to what is actually going down but the beauty of this book is that at the end it all comes to a perfect conclusion, leaving you yearning for the next chapter One thing's for certain : it must have been a bitch trying to follow this in monthly installments.

    • In this volume we are shown how Agent Graves became Agent, and leader of the Minutemen despite suspicions that he killed his predecessor and the disapproval of some of the 13 family heads We are introduced to another of the former minutemen Remi through an underwhelming meat mob story.Augustus medici continues his plotting but at this point there are so many timelines and double crosses going on that its confusing.

    • Lets be honest, this isn't the easiest series to follow at the best of times, though it does have its highlights, but I really struggled to follow this book at all. At first I thought it was a flashback book and we would see the history and context for the whole series, but these flashbacks were interrupted by the current plot. Then those aspects were interrupted by seemingly random storylines for characters I didn't think I'd seen before.All in, I just couldn't get on with it at all.

    • This one was just okay, more testosteronic than usual. There's a Fight Club rip at the beginning with manly men fisticuffing each other until they're bloodied and passed out in the back of a limo. The next story's about Remi and his brother Ronnie banging each others' girlfriend behind each others' back and trying to screw each other over, as well. You can tell the series is getting tired because there's too much rebop about the Minutemen. Croatoa!

    • I thoroughly enjoyed Volume 10 of 100 Bullets.The plot thickens, shocking backstories are revealed, Lono is not as loco as I imagined, new minutemen surface ,the tale takes unexpected twists and you realize that you need to re-read the earlier volumes to make sense of what's happening !!I love this series! It's mind-blowing and simply superb!

    • 100 Bullets is a series that reads better when read all at once. Some of the trades stand alone pretty well, but this one is steeped in mythology, making it somewhat unsatisfying. I have no doubt, when reread in its proper place in the series, that it will change from a 3 star to 4 or 5 star book.

    • Scattered storyline with everybody getting a moment in this chapter, I didn't get into it but there were some great moments. I'm really wishing this would come to an end as it really drags its feet. I'm actually happy I wasn't invested when the books were coming out, much like the TV show Lost. Three to go, the end is near

    • All the Minutemen are finally active; we're starting to get some insight into the history of Graves and the Trust. How strange that after nine volumes, it seems like we've only now set all the pieces out on the board. That might be the greatest achievement of this series. Azzarello tap-dances so gracefully along the line between stalling for time and giving out too much information.

    • "100 Bullets" remains consistently amazing--a crime saga as riveting and complex as any HBO series you might care to mention. And this tenth volume is no exception. Azzarello juggles his characters, back stories, and plotlines with remarkable skill. And this installment doesn't even contain several of our main characters.

    • 3.5 stars. This series is vastly entertaining, with complex plot lines and strong, memorable characters. I feel like it's all but abandoned the original 100 bullets in a briefcase revenge theme in favor of the Minutemen intrigue story, and it hasn't adequately connected the two. Totally worth the read, though!

    • Not gonna lie, I was a little lost at the beginning. It was hard for me to remember what exactly what was happening. That's what I get for waiting months between volumes. I won't make that mistake again.

    • It's still an amazing book. And I kinda think I know a little of what's going on, but not really. I'm very tempted to knock off a star for an unexplained phenomenon. I can't wait to get to the end, and then I'm going to have to read it again someday.

    • I can't say much about this series simply because it's so damn good I don't want to ruin it. It has a great cast and engrossing story, along with tremendous storylines. I don't usually go in for crime comics, but this isn't just any comic.

    • Nice cliffhanger at the end, but this installment concentrated too much on dull undifferentiated characters, and (sadly) didn't include any "irrelevant" metaphorical subplots. Though the crunchy-punk "faux-bos" at the end are quite a tantalizing pair.

    • I didnt enjoy this at all. I only gave it on star because of the art work. I didnt finish this, i got to page 90 and zoned out.
