    One thought on “Stray Bullets, Vol. 5: Hi-Jinks and Derring-Do”

    1. Whoah! Get this visceral rites of passage American suburbia drama. Meet Virginia Applejack, the real X23.

    2. Yes, that's five stars.No, I'm not joking.Have officially reached the point where I need to reorganize my favourites shelf to make room for this series.

    3. You say you like Frank Miller's noir comics Sin City? You say you like the films of Quentin Tarantino or Robert Rodríguez? You say you like Jack Kirby but want something as topically current as Paul Pope? Well, why the f#@% aren't you reading David Lapham's Stray Bullets: Uber Alles Edition? What are you a brain dead moron who's too busy watching nice wholesome Republican propaganda like The Walking Dead or Tolkien wannabees sucking on the teat of Game of Thrones? They call it the boob-tube for [...]

    4. Stray Bullets is not but should be almost exclusively the story of Virginia Applejack and Amy Racecar (two characters whose names sound invented by Daniel Clowes). If Lapham had been able to figure that out and stick to it as a plan, this would've been a much shorter and much more consistent series of stories. I know i would've liked it much more.Nevertheless, i do recommend reading the whole thing, at least until such time as someone creates the desired Ginny/Amy–only version.

    5. As this arc draws to a close Virginia is as bad ass as ever and this noir ish thriller of a book is good as ever it was.
