Worth it, if only for just the story of Gabe. Now that I think of it, Gabe's story, for some reason, reminds me of Sin City and even a tiny bit of Confederacy of Dunces (must be the setting), but of course, it fits here as well.

100 Bullets continues to mix brutality, pathos, suspense, and even humor, and it says more about my limitations than those of the book, that I'm finding it so hard to come up with new things to say about each volume. ( )

"The Hard Way" is a return to form for Azzarello and Risso's 100 Bullets after a rather lackluster and meandering detour in the disappointing volume 7 of the collected edition. Volume 8 moves the story to New Orleans, and considerably improves upon characterization, plotting and overall narrative coherence. Best of all, Azzarello's writing actually lives up to the high quality of Eduardo Risso's artwork, something which has not been true of earlier volumes. Here's hoping the high level attained in this volume will remain the norm as this series enters the final stretch. ( )

Things are beginning to come together, after several incidents earlier begin to make more sense. No-one can accuse the overarching storyline here of being told at a breakneck pace, that is for sure. This, you presume, is deliberate, so each one of these can happily be told as a stand alone, while still developing the main thread.

Book description
Os bares nunca fecham as portas em New Orleans, mas algumas memórias não podem ser afogadas nem com toda a cerveja barata do mundo. Para Wylie Time, duas coisas assombram sua vida: uma mulher chamada Rose e a pasta dada pelo agente Graves. Ele amava a garota, mas ela morreu. E a pasta que Graves lhe entregou tinha uma arma, cem projéteis irrastreáveis e a identidade de um bode expiatório: Shepherd. Agora Wylie está prestes a descobrir o resto da história – incluindo a verdade sobre Shepherd e seus empregadores, o Cartel. E o que ele descobre pode virar o mundo de pernas pro ar, além de redefinir os limites da guerra privada de Graves!
