OK, it's called Spaceman - it's a bit sci-fi (near future, post ecological melt down) but at it's heart it's a crime story. Very relevant to now, with great slang dialogue which you pick up quickly Wire-style, fully formed, well very realised characters and impeccably drawn by Risso, this is a great book. Well worth picking up if you like Azzarello's other work, or other crime comics, like Ed Brubaker's work or early Brain Michael Bendis.

took me a while to get into the way this was written, but the art work is stunning. I enjoyed it, but found it hard to follow in points. the story follows the path of Orson - a genetically engineered astronaught , who lives in a world where the rich thrive and the poor fend for themselves, he then he happens to get involved in a reality tv show kidnapping plot and its all down hill for him from there.

Don't Be Fooled By The Sci-Fi Trappings.... 9 Dec 2012
By Daniel V. Reilly - Published on
Format: Hardcover
...SPACEMAN is pure Noir. Creators Brian Azzarello and Eduardo Risso (Aided and abetted by Cover Artist Dave Johnson) tell the story of Orson, a genetically-engineered Human created by NASA to withstand deep-space travel. After the media breaks the story of their creation, NASA is disbanded, and Orson and his "Bradahs" are left to fend for themselves on a devastated Earth. Orson makes his living salvaging scrap from the flooded remains of a ruined city. His life takes an unexpected detour when he stumbles upon Tara, a young kidnapping victim. (Tara is one of the stars of "The Ark", a truly twisted reality show in which multinational orphans compete to be adopted by a Brad-and-Angelina-like celebrity couple.) Orson saves Tara, setting the stage for an adventure reminiscent of Luc Besson's film THE PROFESSIONAL. Orson and Tara are pursued by Cops, killers, gangsters, and Tara's own Reality-TV producers, as well as one of Orson's fellow Spacemen, a hulking Bounty-Hunter named Carter. As I said above, this is pure Noir.....take away the futuristic setting, and this could have been a 1940's movie.

I've never really been a fan of Brian Azzarello's Writing, and SPACEMAN still hasn't converted me. The ending didn't quite pull together in a satisfactory way, and the pidgin language that most of the story is told in was very distracting to me. Risso's art is outstanding, though, as are Dave Johnson's covers. SPACEMAN is a chunky read, clocking in at well over 200 pages, so it's a real bargain at this price. The book collects all 9 issues of the mini-series, complete with covers, as well as the prologue from STRANGE ADVENTURES #1.

Desolation Sci-Fi 19 Nov 2012
By John Robie - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I came to read this based solely on the fact it's called "Spaceman," but immediately had a two good reasons along with that the moment I realized the creators are Azzarello and Risso. So I knew what I could expect, having read and loved "Batman: Broken City" from them.

The writing and art both impress and inspire me. The "space" aspect of this story is actually not what I expected, but more or less traded for equal or greater value as far as I'm concerned; I found myself comparing this story and overall tangibility at least vaguely to "12 Monkeys" (of my Top 5 movies), and "Fluorescent Black," and even a little of the enjoyment I get from the art of Gabriel Bá.

If I'm not being clear, I love this book. This may not be for everybody, but sometimes some things are perfect for some people.

Excellent storytelling.

Great read 31 Dec 2012
By J MAN - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Although difficult to understand at first, Azzarello's bastardized English of the future really immerses you in this dystopic future, where you can't help but be absorbed by Orson's plight/quest/adventure. Risso's artwork is fantastic, and colorists Patricia Mulvhill and Giulia Brusco compliment it beautifully with their work. Top notch.
It's a very original and avant-garde book with great pacing and interesting characters 22 Oct 2014
By no one of consequence - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Not your typical "superhero" comic. It's a very original and avant-garde book with great pacing and interesting characters. The verbiage can be difficult at times, but is surprisingly clever. If you're a fan of sci fi it's well worth having to read things a couple of times to get what the character is saying. The art isn't for everyone, but I really liked it and I highly recommend this book!
Kafka, Dostoyevsky, Salinger...Azzarello? 16 Jun 2014
By Kiera Arbour - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Mark my words, someday in the near future some comparative lit grad student is going to write her or his thesis on this book and eventually Spaceman will garner the attention it deserves, at least among literary types. Lost amongst the hype of DC's "New 52" reboot, Spaceman is a brilliant expose of the human condition; specifically how we deal with failure and the attendant guilt. Unfortunately, Azzarello has proved himself too clever for the average reader and the message was lost on most, apparently somewhere between Mars and Earth.
