Milo Garrett
Created by Brian Azzarello

In 2002, 100 Bullets, the DC/Vertigo hardboiled crime/revenge fantasy/conspiracy wetdream comic book ran a six-part series, "The Counterfifth Detective," spotlighting Milo Garrett, a lowlife L.A. private eye without a face. Series protagonist, the ever-mysterious Agent Graves, gives Milo an unregistered gun and 100 bullets, and points him in the direction of those responsible for the "accident" that left his head a mass of bandages.

100 Bullet's one of my favourite comics, even when I don't always understand what's going on, and "The Counterfifth Detective" is no different. At the end of it, I wasn't sure where I was, but it was a hell of a trip (I think). Imagine Quentin Tarrantino doing the X-Files, and you've got some idea of the twisting, turning plots up for grabs here. Like all the high quality story arcs in this series, this one's well worth checking out.
