ALIENS: DEFIANCE #1-9 (Brian Wood / Tristan Jones)

Après la saga Fire & Stone qui faisait se rencontrer les Aliens, les Predators, les Ingénieurs et une poignée d’humains, l’éditeur Dark Horse relance la franchise des Xénomorphes avec la mini-série Aliens: Defiance du scénariste Brian Wood (Rebels) et du dessinateur Tristan Jones (Mad Max: Fury Road).

Se déroulant très tôt dans l’histoire de la série, Defiance suit la soldat coloniale Zula Hendricks, mise en retrait suite à une blessure à la colonne vertébrale, et un groupe de guerriers synthétiques modèle Davis enquêter sur ce que la corporation Weyland-Yutani suspecte d’être une contagion extra-terrestre exploitable.

Pour le moment, Wood a prévu 12 épisodes à son histoire. Le premier numéro sort en début d’année 2016.

[quote=“Wood”]The primary cast is Zula and a squad of combat synthetics, collectively named Davis. These are rather basic models, falling somewhere between Worker Joe and a more advanced model like Bishop. They are owned and operated by Weyland as corporate mercenaries. Their squad leader, Davis One, forms a friendship with Zula.

There are a few secondary characters who come along a little later - Zula’s doctor from back on Luna, a geneticist named Hollis they meet along the way, and a whole bunch of angry Marines, to name a few. But this is not an ensemble book, this is really Zula’s story, or Zula + Davis.[/quote]
