Ah oauis, donc maintenant, ce sont des jeunes héros qui se battent entre eux ! Marvel sait dupliquer les concepts en changeant les prétextes !

[quote=“Dennis Hopeless”]Arcade has spent a lot of years building “Murder Worlds” that yield very few actual murders. He’s decided it’s time to get back a little self-respect. It’s time for a new kind of Murder World. AVENGERS ARENA is about the unlucky kids he’s chosen to help him try it out. I don’t want to give too much away, but I can promise a lot of murder in this new Murder World.

The unsent first draft of every pitch I’ve ever written starts with the words “It’s ‘Veronica Mars’ meets…” or “Imagine ‘Friday Night Lights’ only…” This one is no exception.

That sounds like a joke. It isn’t.[/quote]

Ah ouais, mais citer Veronica Mars n’est pas vraiment un gage de qualité pour moi (je dirai l’inverse même, excepté pour la musique du générique !)

tant qu’il cite pas buffy… :smiling_imp: :mrgreen:

Ça se vaut.

(A part la musique du générique)

Blank cover variant Also Available
Trapped on an isolated island, 16 superhuman young adults (including cult faves like members of the Runaways, The Avengers Academy and Darkhawk) are given a chilling ultimatum by their demented captor: Fight or die…only one will walk out alive! Thus begins a primal battle that will test the skills, stamina and morals of each combatant. Welcome to Murder World, where the secrets are plenty, alliances are fleeting, and the key to victory might be rewriting the rules of the game. Who will survive? The rising star team of Dennis Hopeless (X-MEN: SEASON ONE) and Kev Walker (THUNDERBOLTS) dare you to tune in to your new favorite comic NOW!

Hopeless et Walker nous livre du très bon boulot. Non seulement Hopeless connait très bien l’univers Marvel mais il s’amuse à faire allusion à la culture populaire. Quant à Kevin Walker, il est dans son élément, son style anguleux est parfait pour l’ambiance.

Vitti a assuré pour la partie graphique et Hopeless continue à démontrer ses forces narratives. Ce numéro braque le projecteur sur Chase Stein et Nico Minoru, deux personnages des Runaways que je ne connais pas bien. On sent la paranoia prendre les personnages et l’un d’eux en fait les frais, à moins que…

Ils sont assez paranoïaques dans la série de toute façon !
