Stray Fucking Bullets

David Lapham’s Stray Bullets returns after a nearly decade long hiatus through Image Comics with Issue #41 finally completing the “Hijinks And Derring-Do” story arc and Stray Bullets: Killers #1 kicking off a new series. The Uber Alles Edition TP collects all 41 issues as 1200 pages of hardboiled pulpy goodness.

AV Club has a great writeup and the first four issues are available for free on Comixology.

The moments of violence may be life-altering (or life-ending) for the characters Lapham spotlights, but after they occur, the world keeps on spinning just like it always does. And that violence isn’t rare. It’s a part of the natural rhythm of life, and every person is a target vulnerable to a stray bullet.

I picked up this series as a teen, never get tired of re-reading it, and I’m pretty excited to do it all over again. Pretty pleased with Image’s digital comics policy.
