ASSASSIN'S CREED: TEMPLARS #1-9 (Fred Van Lente / Calero)

Assassin’s Creed ne sera pas la seule série liée à la célèbre franchise vidéo-ludique (et futur film) sur les étalages de comics en 2016.

L’éditeur Titan Comics vient d’annoncer la mise en chantier d’une série titrée Assassin’s Creed: Templars avec nulle autre que le scénariste Fred Van Lente (Ivar, Timewalker, Conan The Avenger) aux manettes. Il retrouvera pour l’occasion le dessinateur Dennis Calero avec qui il avait collaboré sur la mini-série X-Men: Noir en 2009.

La série devrait montrer l’envers du décor dans la guerre sans fin qui oppose les Assassins et les Templiers. Le lecteur y suivra un Templier nommé Black Cross dans le Shanghai des années 1920.

Assassin’s Creed: Templars #1 sort en mars prochain.

Même si je ne suis pas fan de son trait, il faut avouer que Denis Calero fonctionne bien sur des ambiances polar années 30/40. En plus d’être une personne très sympathique, pour l’avoir rencontrée dans un festival où j’étais bénévole.
