    No it’s still in development/filming. Hopefully this change doesn’t kill it but FX says they’re going forward

    like TheGrifter said, the show pulled elements from both volumes. That being said, I liked a lot of the stuff that wasn't in the show and the TPBs give you more insight about Sir Reginald Hargreeves

    This has the potential to be fantastic. The comics are insane in the best way possible

    I’ve never read 100 Bullets. Feel like I need to get on it.

    Does it live up to the hype? I haven’t started it, but obviously the reviews are through the roof. I have Comixology Unlimited, so I can read most of it for “free” right now.

    Is there a series you’d could say it compares?

    I read like 20 issues and loved it. Found that waiting a month between issues made me forget what happened in the last so I just stopped reading it. Will start it over when it’s done.

    I love it. It's always my first recommendation for new and old comic book readers. Story, characters and artwork are all top notch.

    I'll have to think about it but off the top of my head I can't think of any other series I've read that it compares to.

    Love Saga up to this point. Got tired of all the DC/Marvel or superhero themed comics, this was a nice getaway. Starting Montress next.
