The first four issues of the critically-acclaimed and Eisner-award winning comic book series “Stray Bullets” are now online to read for free at www.innocenceofnihilism.com. If you’ve never had the chance to give it a try, I highly recommend you take this opportunity.
Writer-artist David Lapham creates a beautifully interconnected world full of criminal tales. We see how thin the line is between the normal world and the dark underbelly. Seeing the bad things that happen to good people who cross that line, mistakenly or otherwise, never ceases to enthrall. Lapham’s black-and-white art matches the intensity and strength of his writing. In my opinion, aside from the legendary Frank Miller and possibly Matt Wagner, Lapham is the finest writer/artist working in the industry today.
It is one of the best non-superhero titles out there. So if you’re curious to check out a comic outside of the spandex set, give “Stray Bullets” a shot.
And if you’re already a fan of Lapham’s work, he’s also selling original art from “Stray Bullets” for the first time ever on the site. If I weren’t clutching my pennies so tightly right now, there’s several pages on there I would absolutely love to purchase.
