Brian Azzarello is one of the biggest names in comics today, and he gets tons of work, and is put on a quite a few high profile books. For example he recently landed the gig to write both Rorschach and the Comedian books for the Watchmen Prequels. I've read a lot of his stuff. And you know what, nothing he's written I have ever found to be that good. I don't know how he got so big.
100 Bullets is Azzarello's biggest claim to fame. I read the whole series, I really enjoyed the first 25 issues or so, but I struggled to get through the last 75. Finally when I did finish the series it was highly unsatisfactory and convoluted.
Then one of Azzarello's other most popular comics was his Joker Graphic Novel. Which was only okay. It came off as a Heath Ledger Dark Knight cash-in, and made the Joker some sort of gangster mafioso type character instead of the Joker character we know.
Then there was Spaceman, which I and a lot of people found awful.
His run on Wonder Woman is getting decent reviews, but I find it a little confusing and hard to follow.
I don't know. I'm just getting sick of all the praise he gets. And want it to be known, that not everyone thinks he's awesome, and in many ways he is overrated and gets more work than he should.
