Brian Azzarello (born in Cleveland, Ohio) is an American comic book writer. He came to prominence with "100 Bullets", published by DC Comics' mature-audience imprint Vertigo. He and Argentine artist Eduardo Risso, with whom Azzarello first worked on "Jonny Double", won the 2001 Eisner Award for "Best Serialized Story" for "100 Bullets" #15–18: "Hang Up on the Hang Low".Citation | last = Irvine | first = Alex | author-link = Alexander C.

Azzarello has written for "Batman" ("Broken City", art by Risso; "Batman/Deathblow: After the Fire", art by Lee Bermejo, Tim Bradstreet, & Mick Gray) and "Superman" ("For Tomorrow", art by Jim Lee).

His run of Vertigo's "Hellblazer" series was controversial, with some fans complaining he reduced protagonist John Constantine to a background character.Fact|date=February 2007 Though, his work on the title did win him an Eisner Award nomination.

In 2005, Azzarello began a new creator-owned series, the western "Loveless", with artist Marcelo Frusin.

As of 2007, Azzarello is married to fellow comic-book writer and illustrator Jill Thompson.
