J’avions pas vu la première annonce du mois de janvier. Plutôt client du travail de Tidhar en prose, et vu les quelques pages proposées, ça risque de le faire en ce qui me concerne. Reste plus qu’a trouver ça, Titan Comics est pas forcément bien disponible.

Merci Le Doc pour l’info, largement passée sous mon radar.

J’aime bien le dessin.
il est anglais, McCaffrey ?

Britannique, en tout cas.

Tori.
Edit : il est bien né en Angleterre.

Oui, pardon, tu fais bien de préciser.

Oui moi aussi.
Et en plus Lavie Tidhar n’est pas un manche. Et puisque c’est un creator-owned (en cinq numéros), il risque d’avoir les coudées franches.
Mais en allant sur son site, j’ai pu voir que le titre était déjà prévu pour 2013.


Voilà ce qu’on pouvait lire le 22 juillet 2013 :

I’ve been sitting on this for a while, but it was finally announced at San Diego Comic-Con on Friday…

I will be writing a five-part comic serial for Titan Comics for release next year.

Adler has been described by Titan as “ladies of literature action-adventure” and “The League of Extraordinary Gentlewomen”, and focuses on Irene Adler as the titular character, with a host of other female figures from classic Victorian literature.

I felt disgruntled enough with recent depictions of Irene Adler (in films/tv) as a sort of Sherlock/Moriarty plaything, to actually do something about it – and in some miraculous way, it worked!

This is predominantly a fun (I hope!) self-contained serial (it will be collected into a trade graphic novel at the end of the run), kind of steampunky, with a vibe a little similar to the Bookman novels.

I am working again with artist Paul McCaffrey – our previous collaboration is still one of my favourite books, Going To The Moon.

There’s still a long way to go, of course, but needless to say Paul and I are excited about it!

The following is a mock-up of a cover, though expect the art to change in the final product.
