He is the author of JONNY DOUBLE, BATMAN- BROKEN CITY and the Harvey and Eisner Award-winning 100 BULLETS, all created in collaboration with artist Eduardo Risso. The New York Times best-selling author's other work for DC includes the titles HELLBLAZER and LOVELESS (both with Marcelo Frusin), SUPERMAN- FOR TOMORROW (with Jim Lee), JOKER and LUTHOR (both with Lee Bermejo), SGT. ROCK- BETWEEN HELL AND A HARD PLACE (with Joe Kubert), FILTHY RICH (with Victor Santos), and most recently the all-new ongoing series WONDER WOMAN (with Cliff Chiang). He also wrote the Richard Corben-illustrated graphic novels Cage and Banner for Marvel Comics. Azzarello lives in Chicago with his wife, artist Jill Thompson, and twitters only when he has something to say.
Praise for 100 BULLETS:
"The self-contained, beautiful and uncompromising little crime stories .... [are] often astonishing. Azzarello is remarkably talented at capturing dialect."--THE NEW YORK TIMES BOOK REVIEW "An ink-dark series about consequence-free revenge."--THE NEW YORK TIMES STYLE MAGAZINE "A meditation on money, power and morality ... for our money, the best current ongoing series."--PLAYBOY "The story has it all: flawed protagonists, dirty cops, conspiracy, guns and that big mistake that makes it all go wrong."--CHICAGO TRIBUNE
