ALL-STAR WESTERN #1-34 (Palmiotti, Gray / Moritat)

Suite aux événements du crossover Flashpoint qui a vu le héros Flash (Barry Allen) confronté à la troisième Guerre Mondiale entre Aquaman et Wonder Woman sur une Terre parallèle (sous la menace constante de son Nemesis, le Nega-Flash) l’éditeur DC Comics a décidé de relancer son univers, justifié par la réécriture de certains Super-Héros qui n’étaient plus en adéquations avec leur époque. Le New 52 c’est la politique agressive de DC Comics en réponse au marché actuelle, 52 nouvelles séries en perpétuel évolution.

Six ans et presque 50 numéros d’un comics dont le genre est passé de mode depuis les années 70 étaient déjà un miracle, mais la reconduire pour le New 52 confine au cinglé. Et pourtant **Jimmy Palmiotti **et **Justin Gray **relance les aventures de l’ex-sudiste Jonah Hex avec l’aide du dessinateur Moritat. Mais cette fois-ci, les deux compères voient large avec All-Star Western et flirte avec le concept d’univers partagé en investiguant du coté de Gotham City. La série fera d’ailleurs partie du crossover Night of The Owls en mai, officialisant la série comme partie intégrante de DC Comics.

A partir de mars, Moritat sera aidé par le dessinateur Patrick Scherberger. Couvertures de** Ladronn**:

Interview des scénaristes Jimmy Palmiotti et Justin Gray au sujet du crossover Night of the Owls qui débute en mai.

[size=200]INTERVIEW DES SCENARISTES JIMMY PALMIOTTI ET JUSTIN GRAY[/size]

[quote]“Plans within plans.” That’s one of my favorite lines from Frank Herbert’s eco-sci-fi epic, Dune. It is also one of the hardest things to convey in a monthly comic where readers are often second-guessing the outcome or direction of a series. There is always a larger plan at work and things are never quite what they seem,” says Gray. “Both Batman and Jonah Hex have been discovering this fact in their own unique ways. Having chosen Gotham City as the unlikely setting for ALL-STAR WESTERN, Jimmy and I thought long and hard about the different ways we could make the book interesting to both new readers and the Jonah Hex faithful. To do that we began our initial arc with the secret society called The Crime Bible trying to establish its roots in 1880’s Gotham. At the same time over in BATMAN, readers were introduced to The Court of Owls.”
Gray continues, “By now you know both organizations existed long before the caped crusader launched his one-man campaign to save the soul of a city. So starting in May, The Court of Owls, the Talon, the secret history of Gotham, Crime Bible, Jonah Hex and Amadeus Arkham…some of the most unlikely and surprising elements start falling seamlessly in to place. It has been months and months in the making, but the plans within plans are coming to fruition and even the most cynical fan has to admit this New 52 thing is pretty damn exciting.”
So get ready to discover what the Court of Owls was up to in Gotham City cira 1880 in ALL-STAR WESTERN #9.
As Palmiotti says, “This is the best of both worlds for comic fans and us, and we plan on delivering the goods. Everything about this crossover makes sense and is planned brilliantly. We are happy to make Jonah and the gang part of comic book history once again.”[/quote]

J’ai commencé à bouquiner la série.
Pour l’instant, je n’ai lu que les deux premiers épisodes, mais c’est pas mal. Une bonne grosse ambiance thriller, dans un décor rétro, avec le vieux discours de la corruption au sommet de la société. J’attends de voir comment ça tourne sur les prochains épisodes.
Chose intéressante, Jonah Hex est associé à Amadeus Arkham, le fondateur de l’asile du même nom. Ça donne de bons dialogues entre ces deux personnages fabriqués sur deux moules bien différents.
La back-up consacrée à El Diablo, dessinée par Jordi Bernet, est super, bien musclée (Palmiotti et Gray sont encore meilleurs sur du format court) et dessinée avec le brio habituel.

[quote]Gray: Booster throws the book into turmoil and a new direction. We’re not going to Thunderdome, but as you can see in the preview images, we will be bringing Jonah Hex to 2013 this summer.

That’s right, Jonah Hex will be in the same time as your favorite DCU heroes.

Palmiotti: Going forward, All-Star Western will be the book that, each month it comes out, will be the book that people say, “what the hell are they doing this month?” for a while. We plan on going to a place where no man before us dared to go.[/quote]
