I got hooked on David Lapham's crime noir series Stray Bullets the first time I picked up one of the original trade paperback collections. I kept picking them up periodically, but it was a long time before I got to read Vol. 1, and I never found a copy of Vol. 7. The original trades ended with Vol. 8 (at issue #32), which left issues #33-40 uncollected. Not only that, but issue #41, which ended the original run of the series, was delayed when the entire series went on hiatus.

The Über Alles Edition, which collects all of the issues from #1 - 41, fills in all the gaps. I was about to read the issues I missed, but realized that I had read some of the earlier collections out of order--and it had been a long time since I read the last one. So I'm starting from the beginning, and thought it might be interesting to record my impressions as I went.

"I don't remember much about her."

I'm gong to have to go back and check when she first appeared. (Maybe you haven't gotten to her yet...?) I don't want to give anything away.

Wikia to the rescue again. She hasn't appeared yet (the first collection covers issues #1-8). And it turns out the earlier Kretchmeyer things weren't really appearances. SB #7 includes art in the back that was later used for Sunshine & Roses #1, so it's only technically his first appearance. And in Killers he is mentioned--a lot of action comes from his goons--but doesn't actually appear on panel. So my memory isn't so bad, after all.
