ART OPS #1-12 (Shaun Simon / Mike Allred)

Label “mature” de DC Comics qui apporta sur la scène comics de nombreux titres populaires comme Sandman, Shade The Changing Man, **Doom Patrol **et Hellblazer au début des années 90 puis **Fables **ou encore 100 Bullets dans les années 2000, Vertigo a annoncé la publication de pas moins de 12 nouveaux titres entre octobre et décembre prochain lors du San Diego Comic Con.

Parmi eux, Art Ops marque le retour de Mike Allred chez Vertigo (iZombies) et laisse songeur quant au destin du Silver Surfer que l’artiste animait avec Dan Slott depuis 2013.
Allred collabore ici avec le jeune scénariste Shaun Simon qui a d’abord fait ses preuves en adaptant une idée de son ami Gerard Way, The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys, avant de débuter sa carrière en solo sur Neverboy.

Art Ops #1 sortira en octobre.

[quote=“Shaun Simon”]Yeah, it started as just, “The Assassination of Mona Lisa.” I had the idea for years, but when I pitched it, it was basically that the Mona Lisa gets out of her frame and a group of Art Operatives have to track her down and put her down. That’s where it came from.

And then from there, we just started developing it into what it came to be.

This book isn’t trying to be anything else but a comic. And I think that’s what we really have going for us. It excels at what it’s trying to do. For me, comics are surreal and unusual and bizarre and quirky, and that’s what we’re trying to be and that’s what this book is about.[/quote]

In this new series by Shaun Simon, co-writer (with Gerard Way) of The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys, and legendary artist Michael Allred (iZOMBIE), art not only imitates life, it becomes it! When rogue figures from famous works of art come to life and escape their frames, it’s up to Reggie Riot and the agents of Art Operatives to track them down before they wreak havoc on the unsuspecting public. But Reggie has secrets of his own that may affect his ability to interact with these living works of art–—and he wants no part in the agency his mother ran before him. Pop culture will never be the same.[/quote]

Is Danny really teaming up with the Neighborhood of Dads to eradicate art from the world, or is this perhaps the greatest performance piece of all time?
