100 Bullets 8 TPB cover by Devilpig 100 Bullets 8 TPB cover by Devilpig
This collection had the saddest story EVER!!!! And yes, that's me at the bottom. Risso added me to the story as a character. Why I made myself so big? Because I'm an asshole. And when would I ever get the chance again?

I think this is the best cover I ever experience.

Why David?

The sillhouette of the grungy black trumpeter in contrast to the negative space is imediately striking and recognizable. There is a sad, lonely, hard luck song playing as you are now pulled into the details, walking the street of New Orleans. The blue fade to purple cuts the orange, cool against warm, the colors are like evil tring to be good. This is the grey area of the world were moral lines converge. All the sins, hope and regrets are here to emote the human experience in it's raw grittiest moments.

Too right. I love this book. It's the only time I've ever felt a lump in my throat ready a comic. Poor old Gabe. This book and book 5 are easily the best of 100 Bullets. And THAT's saying something.

No. Took my own reference. And the story involved the tale of a tragic trumpet player.

One of my favorite 100 Bullets covers. This was a great story even though it was so sad. There aren't a lot of happy endings in Azzarello's little world.

I loved the idea and layout of this piece. A collage of a story within a silhouette.

Awesome. What is this about? It looks pretty jazzy. I really like how you fit all of these scenes inside the silhouette of the trumpet player as well the color contrast. :+fav:

It was beautifully tragic. Probably my favorite arc of the series.

(wonderful cover too, btw)

This is my favorite from all the 100 you did. So much so, it inspired me to work out a pretty cool page layout.

Check it out.

Cool. Although the silhouette is a bit had to read. Silhouettes should always be super clear. Having his hand w/ phone up to his head meant you had to add a separation line. Changing the angle of the figure might have solved this.
