Nevertheless, 10,000 Bullets is an exciting read even for newcomers to Ennis's work. This book, the second collection of Garth Ennis' 'Hitman' series sees the character of Tommy Monaghen (a hitman with superpowers and a fast wit) face major changes in his life.

Nevertheless, 10,000 Bullets is an exciting read even for newcomers to Ennis's work. This collection also brings a close to one of the stories introduced in the first collection, as a mob boss (whose dead siamise twin's corpse decays on his bodies other half) sends a smooth assassin to deal with Tommy. All this, and a pretty funny jab at super-hero comics.

Garth Ennis did some of his best work on Hitman. I really wish he'd have done a Hitman/Punisher crossover. Still full of humor, this is one of the darker arcs, as Tommy goes up against an equally great Hitman. Ennis wrote the series concurrently with his (for lack of a more accurate term) masterpiece "Preacher," and every idea that was too stupid for "Preacher" (oh, and believe me, there was no shortage of stupid ideas in "Preacher") wound up in "Hitman.

The actual "10,000 Bullets" arc was darker than previous stories but stronger for it. A story is better when there are . A story is better when there are consequences even though the reader may not enjoy those consequences. Garth Ennis find his stride, and Tommy Monaghan and his buddies find their voices in this second Hitman collection. A pleasant touch of (relative) normalcy in a world chock full of super-this and wonder-that.

  • Beabandis
It's book 2 of the collected Hitman series by Garth Ennis and John McCrea. Continues the adventures of Tommy Monahan, assassin to the supes, and introduces his partner in mayhem, Nat the Hat! The plot and dialogue are great; Ennis continues to build the characters and define their relationships. The art is cartoony, but expressive, and a perfect fit for the tone of this story.

Tommy Monaghan is a Hitman with a conscience who's blessed with x-ray vision, telepathy and one hell of a skill-level. He'll shoot any meta-human you want (he doesn't take contracts on regular people because 'where's the sport in that') as long as you bring the money, AND he HAS to see the target as 'bad people'. Otherwise, no deal. In this book (which collects Hitman #4-8) the tables are turned when a mob boss from Tommy's past wants revenge and puts a price on HIS head. A hitman, who sees himself as the best in the world, called Johnny Navarone takes the job. Meanwhile Tommy himself, who doesn't suspect a thing so far, takes on a contract of his own. He's supposed to kill of a corrupt vigilante named 'Nightfist' (which is really meant as a mocking of superhero-comics) for the price of $10.000. The assignment turns out to be a set-up and Tommy gets in a world of trouble. Navarone then does something he really shouldn't have. Now IT'S PERSONAL ! From here the story turns into a kill-fest. Finally the book concludes with #8 which is a "Final Night" tie-in. The guys spend a night hanging out but when they realize the sun isn't coming up, and Superman's on the news, they decide to stick together in the bar to wait for the end of the world. They pass the time by telling each other about the time they came closest to death.
Compared to the previous Hitman collection (the one that hasn't got a name) this one contains a lot less one-liners and a heck of a lot more action and graphic violence. Off course there ARE still one-liners and the humorlevel is up to score (it IS a Ennis title after all) but you just have to look harder for it (just LOOK at the characters, it's a blast). It's a great addition to the Hitman series and people who like the typical Ennis' humor, and don't neccesarily need a story to be too complicated will have a lot of fun with it. That's mainly what going on, action and humor and it works out very good. The one downside this book has though is that it relates a lot to the previous collection, so you should really get that one first or at least read it prior to this one (or you'll miss out on things here and there). But that's also a good book so that's not a waste either.

This book, the second collection of Garth Ennis' 'Hitman' series sees the character of Tommy Monaghen (a hitman with superpowers and a fast wit) face major changes in his life. This collection also brings a close to one of the stories introduced in the first collection, as a mob boss (whose dead siamise twin's corpse decays on his bodies other half) sends a smooth assassin to deal with Tommy. All this, and a pretty funny jab at super-hero comics. '100,000 Bullets', an obvious play on Azzerello's '100 Bullets', is a fun read and a solid continuation of the 'Hitman' story.
  • Mightsinger
The title is obviously a parody, and there is a parody here, as the Hitman is hired to get rid of a superhero gone over the line, called Nightfist.

One problem with being a killer for hire is that when you kill people, it can certainly make other people very unhappy. A mob boss is one of the not happy people, and he puts a contract out on Tommy.
