Spaceman – The New Vertigo Book from Brian Azzarello And Eduardo Risso

They created 100 Bullets together, a book responsible for breaking out the possibilities of crime comics at Vertigo.

We learned at NYCC that Brian Azzarello and Eduardo Risso would be working on new Vertigo book together. But had no idea what it was.

Well we do now.

Jim Lee, Brian Azzarello, Eduardo Risso and Will Dennis attended Crack Bang Boom, a new comic convention in Argentina this week. And during the 100 Bullets panel, they made an announcement. And Zona Negativa were there.

The new series will be called Spaceman, edited by Will Dennis, with covers by Dave Johnson. The exact same team that brought you 100 Bullets.

The comic will start as a nine issue series next year vand will continue as a series of mini-series.

Rather than science fiction, it is being described as specultive fiction and the team compare it to Blade Runner. So, yes, it’s science fiction.

There haven’t  beena  lot of science fiction books at Vertigo, Transmetropolitan being a rare ongoing exception. Maybe, just as with 100 Bullets, Spaceman can change that.
