Spanish Scott, The Finger Man, Beth, Ron, Monster, Mike Hussey...These are just a few of the killers Virginia Applejack has known in her short life. The effect of knowing this collection of cutthroats has never been fully realized until now. As her safe place falls apart, Virginia realizes that the unraveling of her life began with one person, one incident, long buried. To put it right-to excise the cancer eating at her soul and cursing those around her-she may have to do the unthinkable. Virginia Applejack may have to add her own name to her long list of KILLERS.

    I've avoided discussing this issue in too much detail not to avoid spoilers, but to encourage you (yes, you) to go read it. Stray Bullets is simply too well crafted and too important to be ignored. Read Full Review

    While I'm sad to see "Stray Bullets: Killers" come to a close, knowing that "Stray Bullets: Sunshine and Roses" hits stores in January 2015 brings a smile to my face. This eight-issue story arc has reminded me how great Lapham's signature creation is, and what a big deal it is to have it back on a regular basis once more. Here's to the next story arc and beyond.

    Now that this arc is over, I'm excited to start back at the beginning once the trade is released. While the next arc won't follow Eli and Virginia, I think it won't be too far off until we get see how that last page plays out for them. In my ideal world, we'd first find out that Adam died from spontaneous combustion. Read Full Review

    Stray Bullets: Killers #8 ends a very successful "mini-ongoing" by utilizing a bunch of characters introduced over the previous seven issues and putting them against each other in unforeseen ways. With a savvy mix of violence, emotion and absurdity I recommend this series to anyone looking for a damn good read. Now excuse me while I catch up on the 1000 or so pages that I missed.

    I'd tip my hat to the Laphams (if I were wearing a hat) because being thrown into the middle of a comic is usually a hellish mess, but I felt comfortable and confident reading this comic. I couldn't be more happy that the arc is finished, because that gives me some time to go catch up on years' worth of Stray Bullets while anticipating the new arc come January. Read Full Review
