What Would You Do? A Celebration of ‘100 Bullets’

100-Bullets-Featured

Brian Azzarello and Eduardo Risso’s stylish noir revenge fantasy 100 Bullets first debuted on this day in 1999, and in many ways signaled the beginning of a new golden era at Vertigo that led to series such as Fables and The Losers. 100 Bullets' themes of corporate irresponsibility and empowerment of the common man are as relevant today as they were in the late '90s, and the series holds up in a way not many of its peers can claim.

Once Upon a Crime: The ‘100 Bullets’ Game That Almost Happened

DC Comics
DC Comics

At the turn of the millennium, Vertigo published the first handful of issues of 100 Bullets, the hard-boiled neo-noir from Brian Azzarello and Eduardo Risso. The heavy-handed narrative would take a decade to unfold, with a conspiracy so complex, you basically had to re-read every old issue every time a new issue came out just so you could keep all the twists, turns, changing allegiances, and lies straight. The idea of a video game based on a Vertigo comic seemed completely improbable at the time, and that's not even considering the subject matter, tone and style of 100 Bullets being a better fit for the graphic medium than the virtual one.

Despite the odds being heavily stacked against a 100 Bullets video game, ten years ago it almost actually happened. Thanks in part to the successes of Max Payne and Hitman, both of which proved there was a market for a story like 100 Bullets, Acclaim reached a deal with the comic's creators to develop and publish a video game based on the moody, violent comic. Back in 2003 and 2004, you might remember even seeing advertisements and preview coverage of 100 Bullets in its early stages. But that's as far as 100 Bullets ever made it, and we've never really seen what could have been. That is until PtoPOnline uncovered some of these early prototypes and shared them with the world this week.

DC Comics

Tom Hardy digs DC Comics. He was Bane in The Dark Knight Rises, and he was supposed to star in Suicide Squad until scheduling conflicts with The Revenant forced him out of the project (Hardy said he was “gutted” to lose the gig). In May, we got word that Hardy was also developing another DC project, though he wouldn’t say just what it was. Here’s how he described it at the time:

Dave Johnson Reveals Complete ‘100 Bullets’ Omnibus Cover Montage

100 Bullets lede

Since its beginning in 1999, it's possible that no cover artist has left as indelible a mark on a comic series as Dave Johnson has with his work on 100 Bullets. The acclaimed illustrator provided each cover for all 100 issues of the original series, a new cover for each subsequent trade paperback, and is now illustrating every cover for the Brother Lono miniseries that spun out of the 100 Bullets universe. Further, Johnson has created new covers for the five omnibus editions of the series, with the pieces connecting to show one continuous illustration.

Yesterday via Twitter, Johnson released for the first time the complete, connected work, and you can check it out below.
