AMY RACECAR IS BACK! The first kill is always the worst—the most traumatic, the most gut-wrenching. It’s the one that sticks with you. Except if you’re Amy Racecar. The most dangerous woman in the world doesn’t even remember her first kill. The next 112 kills that came after were buckets of fun, but Amy’s always felt that void of not remembering number one... All that’s about to change, that sickening “first kill” horror is about to come with kill number 114. After she’s been reborn into a new life of hope and love. After she’s found her one true love. After she’s changed her ways, renounced violence and put down her gun...lost it...then found it...then picked it up again...

    The story of Virginia Applejack may never end. I have no doubt that this girl has the capabilities to survive long past the point when we are all dead and buried, but I also can't imagine this series ending any other way. It's a story about violence begetting violence month after month, and how it manages to catch up to everyone in the end. I'm obviously spit-balling here and have no window into Lapham's mind, but this is to say that while I can't imagine this series is going to end happily, I am enjoying every minute of getting there.

    Stray Bullets: Killers is continuing and building on the epic scale Lapham created with the first volume. Issue 5 is already in to page 142! I don't know how long Killers is going to last but as long as it does we're in for one Hell of a ride. Read Full Review

    Word Of The Nerd - Lucas Carver Jul 21, 2014

    Stray Bullets:Killers is one of the best books you can pick up today. It's brutality, grit, and blood all help to make it stand out against most mainstream books, especially those being put out by Image, which have been either hit or miss for me honestly. Killers continues to deliver brutally honest stories with violent undertones that makes this series hard to look at sometimes after reading multiple issues at once. I wish there were more books like this being put out today so badly. David Lapham is a genius. Read Full Review

    "Stray Bullets" may be well known for its gritty storytelling (and that's certainly present here) but the fantasy premise behind the issue gives Lapham a lot more space to have fun, from outrageous shootouts to dystopian cities full of freaks, we get a lot of scenes that would never fly in the ultra-real world "Stray Bullets" usually finds itself in without losing the solid visual storytelling that's made it one of the best "new" series coming out of Image.
