100 Bullets team to write Spaceman, a science fiction comic for Vertigo

At the Crack Bang Boom comic convention in Rosario, Argentina, 100 Bullets scribe Brian Azzarello and illustrator Eduardo Risso announced that they would be teaming up again for Spaceman, a scifi comic in the same vein as Blade Runner.

At NYCC, DC revealed that Azzarello and Risso would be collaborating on an unnamed project — looks like this is it. Details about Spaceman are still sparse, but we do know that it will be a nine-issue series followed by several miniseries and that 100 Bullets editor Will Dennis and covers artist Dave Johnson will be back. Our interest is seriously piqued.
