ALIEN LEGION: UNCIVIL WAR #1-3 (Dixon, Potts / Stroman)

La série Alien Legion revient chez Titan Comics avec, aux manettes, son créateur Carl Potts, ainsi que le scénariste Chuck Dixon et le dessinateur Larry Stroman qui ont grandement contribué à la série dans les années 90. Créé dans les années 80 pour le magazine Epic (pendant Marvel de Métal Hurlant), Alien Legion est une version extra-terrestre de la Légion Étrangère racontant le quotidien de ses soldats. En 2010, Dark Horse avait déjà tenté de ressusciter le titre sans succès.

Alien Legion: Uncivil War #1 sortira le 25 juin.

[quote] ALIEN LEGION: UNCIVIL WAR #1
The classic series returns, blasting its way into an all-new battle-scared, laser-ravaged adventure!

In a galaxy savaged by strife, torn by civil war, boiling with spilt blood, Alien Legion is a cosmic military force doing its damnedest to keep the peace by being always ready for war.

At the tip of the Legion’s multi-species spear is Force Nomad – the worst of the worst fashioned on the white-hot forge of battle into the best of the best. Now the squad’s grizzled veterans are on what should be a boring milk run; shepherding refugees fleeing a civil war ripping apart their system. Could be a good chance to to toughen the newbies of Nomad into soldiers… until straight-up peacekeeping descends into full-scale war!

This brand-new series brings together the creative giants behind the legendary original Alien Legion stories: Chuck Dixon (Punisher War Journal, Savage Sword of Conan, Batman and the Outsiders) and Carl Potts (The Punisher, The Incredible Hulk) with fantastic art by Larry Stroman! (Wolverine, The Punisher).

A must-have for any fan of the original run, this is also the perfect point for new fans to hit Alien Legion’s hot LZ! Get to it, ya damn bospors![/quote]

La présentation du titre:

Cool…j’ai lu l’intégralité Epic/Marvel en début d’année et c’était vachement bon : de l’excellente SF guerrière qui tire bien parti de toutes les possibilités qu’offre son concept. De l’action à gogo, une passionnante galerie de personnages très bien caractérisés (et ce côté “chair à canon” qu’on envoie sur tous les fronts réserve pas mal de surprises) et des histoires de qualité, bien construites autour de thèmes forts (réinsertion, écologie, politique, corruption…).
Je me chercherai le titre Dark Horse quand j’en aurai l’occasion avant d’embrayer sur les Titan Comics

WITH ALIEN LEGION, THERE’S NO SUCH THING AS ‘PEACEKEEPING’
The Bospers of Force Nomad return once more to the pages of Alien Legion!
Detailed with providing humanitarian (and all other species!) support to refugees fleeing a civil war on the planet Harkilon, Force Nomad is hoping for a push-over peacekeeping milk.
Instead, smugglers are using the refugees as cover and it only takes one itchy trigger finger to turn a diplomatic mission into a SNAFU of galactic proportions!
Uncivil War marks the return of Chuck Dixon (Punisher War Journal, Savage Sword of Conan) and the art genius of Larry Stroman and Carl Potts to the Legion after 15 rammin’ years![/quote]

THE BAND OF BOSPERS IS BACK! Chuck Dixon (Punisher War Journal, Savage Sword of Conan), Larry Stroman and Carl Potts are back drilling Alien Legion into shape after a 15 year absence!
The slime of the cosmos has been heat-tempered into the diamond-sharp tip of the Galactic Union’s armed forces. But the battle-hardened veterans of the Legion’s toughest unit, Force Nomad, will need all their experience to blast their way out of a peacekeeping mission turned rammin’ red hot![/quote]

The space lanes to Hell are paved with good intentions and the peacekeeping mission for the veterans of Alien Legion’s elite Force Nomad has gone rapidly belly up. Escorting a fleet of refugee ships has degenerated into a sprawling cosmic brawl and to make matters worse, a cadre of alien priests seem determined to wipe out all life on a peaceful planet in preparation for their second coming![/quote]
