AKA: PHILLIP GRAVES

Apart from being the coolest cat on several continents, Agent Graves also serves as the harbinger of moral dilemma. Appearing as the protagonist of Brian Azzarello�s 100 Bullets, Graves offers those who have been wronged the chance for revenge without consequences, if only they�re prepared to take it. A briefcase, a gun, 100 �untraceable� bullets and incontrovertible proof against the single person behind their woes, these are what Graves has to offer. Interestingly, neither Graves nor the writers pass judgment on whether taking up the offer is right or wrong. Graves� motives are never made clear but he used to be a member of a group called The Minutemen and harbours a great deal of resentment for the shadowy organization known as The Trust, who betrayed him in the past.

FIRST APPEARED IN SILENCER NIGHT - VERTIGO SUMMER SPECIAL (1998)
CREATED BY BRIAN AZZARELLO AND EDUARDO RISSO
