Writing for St. Louis’ Playback, Carlos Ruiz kicks off the first installment of a two-part interview with writer Brian Azzarello, who discusses the end of 100 Bullets, and continuing to work with artist Eduardo Risso:
So after almost 10 years are you ready to move on?
No, no, no, I am not ready. Eduardo and I have talked about it and it’s something that Vertigo doesn’t want to end. They said if you want to keep going, then keep going. We talked about it but we decided no.
I read somewhere that regretted saying the series would stop at 100 issues.
I should never have said that it should go to 100 either. [laughs]
Well, 100 issues ties in to the attaché which has 100 untraceable bullets, so each issue functions like a single bullet. It’s very poetic.
Maybe there is one in the chamber. Maybe we’ll get 101. Nah, we’re going to stop it at 100, it’s a 100 issue comic novel. But that doesn’t mean that Eduardo and I are done working together.
So are you guys thinking about your next project?
We’re actively talking about our next project.
The second installment is scheduled to appear next week.
