Last Shot Now Out....In Russian!

The Russians, I think, make the coolest, toughest covers. This one for Last Shot looks like a movie one-sheet. Having just visited Russia and acquainted myself with various personalities there, I had to laugh at Guy Ritchie's portrayal of the Russian hitmen in Rockandrolla. No matter the injuries, they keep coming! Garth Ennis also had a great Russian hitman in his Punisher MAX run -- one of my favorite new characters he introduced.

So I consider this cover a celebration of everything that's bad-ass about Russia.

That is a cool cover. Russian covers used to be really bad, but most of the ones I've seen in the past 10 years have been great, like this one.

Do you know who played the Russian hitmen in "Rockandrolla"? They were hilarious but couldn't find their name in Credits.
