Re: Review Group: #384 - 100 Bullets Brother Lono #1

Guitarsmashley decided that we should take a new look at the 100 Bullets universe with everyone's favorite tool bag, Lono.




Yea, its Saturday, thats on me

TO THE REVIEWS!

100 Bullets Brother Lono #1

BROTHER LONO is a brand-new 8-issue miniseries set in the world of 100 BULLETS! The Eisner award-winning team behind 100 BULLETS-writer Brian Azzarello, artist Eduardo Risso, colorist Trish Mulvihill, letterer Clem Robbins and cover artist Dave Johnson-reunites to tell the story of the baddest Minuteman of all. When last we saw Lono in 100 BULLETS, Dizzy Cordova had shot him through the chest...but Lono always was too tough to die. Now, after the final events of 100 BULLETS, Lono finds himself in Mexico working on the side of the angels. But there's always more to a 100 BULLETS story, so pick up this EXTRA-SIZE first issue to see what's really going on with BROTHER LONO, the cold-blooded killer you hate to love!

Ze rules:

Post your review in the forum thread or in the comments section here on the front page.

Review as often or as little as you like. Once you've posted 5 reviews, you will be awarded 1 pick. You can post 5 reviews, right? That's a totally achievable goal and with day and date digital releases becoming the standard, it shouldn't matter if your shop ordered enough copies of this weeks comic or not.

When multiple Review Groupers have posted 5 (or more) qualifying reviews, they will be awarded their pick in the order that they qualified. What constitutes a qualifying review? Any review posted (with a score on a scale from 0-10, that's right 0!) within 1 calendar month of the thread going live. Reviews are to be at least 5 sentences long. It shows that a) you have at least read this week's pick and b) you have some unique insight into the comic.

Reviews posted while waiting in line for your pick will be applied to your next pick.

I'll be keeping track of everyone's progress with the newly christened Spreadsheet of Fantastic (RIP, Spreadsheet of Doom) and reporting the results in the Current Members list in the weekly OP. When it's your turn to make a pick, I will PM you. If you do not respond to me by Midnight EST the following Sunday, you will lose your pick and I will start a poll to determine that week's selection.

Any week in which we do not have a Review Grouper with 5 qualifying picks, we will determine the week's comic via poll.

If it's your week to pick, remember to keep it under $3.99.

There's more 100 Bullets work?

One of the best books I've ever read IMO! Can't believe this!

Read most of this in the shop, what a visually disgusting and cliche-ridden piece of crap. Does this ever reinforce my conviction that the original series is overrated flash.

I'll admit that I've never been a Azzarello fan, and I can't say this issue changed any of my views on his writing. Nothing really seems new here. It's all violence just for the sake of violence. That sort of story can be fun, I loved the movie Machete as one example. This issue has none of the fun and style of that movie however.

Brother Lono himself seems like he could be an interesting character. Having said that, I really didn't find myself interested in finding out if that will be the case as this series progresses.

In the end, it's just not my cup of tea. I will admit though that others will have a different opinion on this than me.

4 out of 10.

I read and finished 100 bullets last year and I can't remember where Lono ended up. But he is not the same piece of shit he was in that series here. I read this comic last week and can barely remember what happened in it. The one thing Azzarello manages to do somewhat well is write slang and half the time it's unitellagable and others you can't figure out which way you should be reading the dialogue because it's all over the place. Risso is still a mix of Frank Miller and Mike Mgnola and his art is still good but I'm not sure what the reasoning for visiting this pocket of the 100 bullets world is really for.

I read this. I wish that I hadn't. The meditation of life and death was terrible, and turned me off the rest of the book. But that trite meditation is actually the best part of the book. Yikes. If not for the art, I would not have bothered with the rest. But paradoxically, the art is also the biggest problem with the book. Because it is so exceptional and carefully stylized, it makes the violence, especially the torture, less jarring. The book is gruesome, over-the-top gruesome. And under the direction of a lesser artist, it would have been clear that this book is blood and guts and not much else. But great art gives the story and violence more depth that it actually has or deserves.

5/10
