ARCHIE : 1955 #1-5 (Mark Waid, Brian Augustyn / Grummett, Height)

Après Archie 1941, Mark Waid et Brian Augustyn changent de décennie et emportent la jeunesse de Riverdale dans cette révolution qu’était l’arrivée du rock’n’roll.

La mini-série Archie : 1955 est dessinée par Tom Grummett (Section Zero). La publication débutera en septembre.

Mark Waid :

« As a boy who grew up in Tupelo, Mississippi, I’ve been a rock-origins aficionado my entire life. Archie: 1955 is my chance to visit that era I so love, and do it with an Archie spin. As with Archie: 1941, we’re very true to the time while telling a story in a modern way that’s exciting and dramatic. Using Archie as a lens through which to really examine the beginnings of rock ‹ n › roll is a blast. »

On joue : où est Marty ?

Et monsieur Strickland ?

L’intrigue, surtout : va-t-il l’embrasser ?

(que de suspens)

En tout cas, du Tom Grummett épuré, ça lorgne vers du Barreto. Bref, j’adore.
