1602: WITCH HUNTER ANGELA #1-4 (Bennett,Gillen/Hans,Sauvage)

Quoi de plus naturel pour une création de Neil Gaiman que de découvrir un univers redéfini par Neil Gaiman ? A partir de juin prochain, à l’occasion de l’évènement Secret Wars, l’ex-traqueuse divine de Spawn devenue demi-sœur cosmique de Thor se transformera en chasseuse de sorcière dans le domaine de l’ère 1602 (vous suivez ?).

C’est l’équipe créative derrière la série Angela: Asgard’s Assassin, c’est-à-dire les scénaristes Kieron Gillen et Marguerite Bennett, ainsi que la dessinatrice Stephanie Hans accompagnée ici de Marguerite Sauvage, qui seront aux manettes. En plus d’Angela et de Sera, l’auteure promet d’introduire les versions victoriennes de Bucky Barnes et des Gardiens de la Galaxie.

Comme pour la série régulière, chaque numéro de 1602: Witch Hunter Angela sera divisé en deux parties; la première en 15 pages sera centrée sur l’intrigue principale tandis que les 5 dernières pages seront consacrées au passé de l’héroïne en titre.

[quote=“Gillen”]Both Marguerite and I are big fans of the real world period and Neil Gaiman. So the idea of me doing Gaiman style material is not exactly a new riff. “Journey Into Mystery” very much could be read as dancing with “The Sandman.” In fact there are explicit sections of “Journey Into Mystery” that are engaged with “The Sandman.” My Nightmare was sort of explicitly a “Sandman” piss take. [Laughs] I say that with love.

I mean, the first line that my Nightmare says in “Journey Into Mystery” is “He’s ripping me off!” He’s of course talking about the Serpent, but he’s also saying it to camera. There was, shall we say, a meta reading of that in terms of my mea culpa.

Anyway though, there’s a natural synergy here! Angela is a bounty hunter and she hunts monsters. In the setting of 1602 mutants are monsters. So here Angela has a purpose and it’s a bit loaded. [Laughs][/quote]

[quote=“Bennett”]So much of the creation of our world comes from transgressing borders and the interaction of different cultures with each other to bolster and progress this civilization, and in “Secret Wars” the strict nature of those borders prevents all of that. So there are some things where we’re trying to be logical and take it to its projected historical conclusion; the ways these societies took shape. There’s no way you can get to 1602 though, as it was in Neil Gaiman’s original series [Laughs] without the influence of these other nations that now don’t exist.

It’s even down to things like the increasing tensions with Spain and France. Well, Spain and France don’t exist! [Laughs] So we decided that we were just going to have a lot of fun with it and make it more of an alternate history. So as opposed to making it exceedingly and off puttingly monocultural it’s much more multiethnic.[/quote]

In the altered realms of BATTLEWORLD, Angela and Sera are WITCH HUNTERS, the scourges of King James’ England, 1602. In a land beset by magic and monstrosity, they seek a new and seductive evil-not witchbreed, but deal-making FAUSTIANS, who bargain with ancient creatures for unnatural power! Moral ambiguity? Fancy allusions? Marguerite making the most of that English degree? tl;dr – try 1602 WITCH HUNTER ANGELA #1![/quote]

• The hunt is on! The Faustians have made their deal with the Devil – er, Enchantress – but Angela isn’t going to take that lying down, is she? No, not by her psychic ribbons and very, very pointy weapons, no, she is not.
• Out into the wilds of the countryside, Angela and Sera collide with a wandering caravan of ne’er-do-well performers. (Hint: their name starts with a “G” and ends with an “Y” and has an “Uardians of the Galax” in the middle.)
• Pagan rites, dubious ethics, a deadly curse, and Kieron and Irene Koh being up to no good – who can resist the lure of the Faustians?[/quote]
