Eduardo Risso (born in 1959) is an Argentine comic book artist. In the United States he is probably best known for his work with writer Brian Azzarello on the Vertigo title 100 Bullets,[1] while in Argentina and Europe he is noted for his collaborations with Ricardo Barreiro and Carlos Trillo. He has received much acclaim for his work.

Biography[edit]

Risso was born in Leones in Córdoba Province, and started as a cartoonist in 1981, drawing his first collaborations for the morning paper La Nación and the magazines Eroticón and Satiricón, all published by Columba editions.[2] In 1986, he worked for Eura Editoriale of Rome, Italy, and in 1987 he drew Parque Chas, scripted by Ricardo Barreiro. The series was first published by Fierro in Argentina, comic history, and then by Totem in Spain, Comic Art in Italy and finally the complete series as an album in France, Germany, Denmark, Belgium, the Netherlands, Poland and the United States. In 1988, he drew Cain, again scripted by Barreiro.

Later that same year, Risso did Fulù, scripted by Carlos Trillo, published in Italy, France, Germany, Portugal, the Netherlands, and in Argentina in the Puertitas magazine. The Trillo-Risso duo have also created Simon: An American Tale , published in Italy and France, Borderline, published in Italy and Chicanos, published in Italy and France.

Risso has won four Eisner Awards for his work on 100 Bullets: in 2001, for the Best Serialized Story (with Brian Azzarello); twice, in 2002 and 2004, for the Best Continuing Series (with Azzarello); and in 2002 for Best Artist.[1]
