Street Date: June 26, 2013
Cover price: $3.50
Creator: Adam Egypt Mortimer, Darick Robertson
32 pages
Synopsis: Welcome to Repo City State, where everyone’s an asshole… even the air conditioners.
Darick Robertson (Happy, The Boys, Transmetropolitan) and Adam Egypt Mortimer’s (director of Grant Morrison’s upcoming Sinatoro) madcap, psychedelic, transreal, utterly-wacko buddy adventure about Butch and his best friend Gun, a drug-addicted, genetically-modified, foul-mouthed firearm, as they attempt to elevate Butch from air conditioner repairman to master criminal in the twisted, post-eco-apocalyptic Repo City State, a reclaimed trash island built entirely from DNA-based, living technology with bad attitudes.
Ballistic marks Darick Robertson’s return to the hard sci-fi worldbuilding of his classic Transmetropolitan but mixed with The Boys’ ultra-violence and the lunacy of Happy. Mortimer’s mix of speculative science, pulpy noire, and drug-addled adventure cooks up a strange brew of Lethal Weapon by way of Cronenberg meets Dr. Who if written by Odd Future.[/quote]

A propos de Adam Egypt Mortimer (ça c’est du nom…), où il en est ce fameux “Sinatoro” avec Morrison au script ??
Il est annoncé ici comme “upcoming” mais ça fait des années j’ai l’impression. On peut même parler de “development hell” avec ce projet.
