He and writer Brian Azzarello collaborated on the Lex Luthor: Man of Steel limited series in 2005 and the Joker graphic novel in 2008.[3] In 2009, Bermejo drew the Superman story in the Wednesday Comics limited series.[4][5] Bermejo both wrote and drew the Batman: Noël graphic novel in 2011.[6] He and Azzarello worked together again on the Before Watchmen: Rorschach limited series in 2012-2013.[7] In 2015, Bermejo will launch an ongoing series for Vertigo titled Suiciders.[8]
