Overview
The multi-award-winning crime and suspense saga continues, with two very different stories of prisoners, cages, and life behind bars. While inmate Loop Hughes is just beginning to adjust to the everyday reality of life in state prison, a new convict is introduced, with ties to Hughes and a very unwelcome agenda. For Loop, survival in lockdown is about to get infinitely more difficult. The collection also features the tale of Jack Daw, a lowlife vagabond who comes across a roadside zoo during his cross-country travels. The inmates in this prison are marked for execution, and their rare pelts bound for the black market. Unless, that is, Daw choose to save them. Suggested For Mature Readers.

Amazing tales

100 Bullets: Samurai, by Brian Azzarello and Eduardo Risso, is Book 7 in one of the most intriguing and powerfully written comics series around. It's extremely dark material, both in terms of artwork—almost all the scenes take place at night, with a moody, muted color palette—and content. The premise is this: a mysterious stranger who knows about something terrible that once happened to you gives you an untraceable gun and 100 bullets and promises you vengeance without consequence. Noth-ing, of course, is that simple. In this volume, one set of the 100 bullets is supposed to be used on the shooter himself—clearly problematic. The bulk of the story takes place in prison and is rich with dead-on dialogue and complex characters; even the "bad guys" have secrets, depth and nuanced personalities. If the storyline is hard to pick up here in the middle, don't worry: you'll want to seek out the first six volumes as soon as you've read this one.
