BATGIRL #1-50 (Larson, Scott, Castellucci / collectif)

La scénariste Hope Larson (Goldie Vance) a été engagé par DC Comics pour s’occuper de relancer Batgirl à l’occasion de Rebirth, avec l’aide de nul autre que le dessinateur de American Vampire : Rafael Albuquerque.

Premier changement notable, Barbara Gordon quitte le petit patelin de Burnside et part en voyage en Asie.

Comme chaque série, elle sera précédée d’un numéro spécial « Rebirth ».

Sortie prévue pour juillet.

Hope Larson parle de la nouvelle aventure de Batgirl à la “Jack Kerouac” :

[quote] Having just (barely!) survived the Battle of Burnside and verging on an Arkham-worthy break­down, the star pulls a Kerouac and gets on the road to find herself.

“She needs to get away from it all to center her­self again,” Editor Mark Doyle says. “Along the way, she will meet some all-new heroes—and villains. And learn some new skills she’ll be bringing back to her Burnside neighborhood of Gotham City.”

Planning Babs’ itinerary? Writer Hope Larson and artist Rafael Albuquerque—a pair of Eisner Award winners. It’s a match that makes for an intriguing mix of indie storytelling sensibility and explosive visuals, one that should combine for some extremely postcard-worthy moments for Babs.

“The ‘Burnside’ take generated a lot of buzz, and we’re taking that tone and vibe and running with it, but spinning it out into new adventures,” Doyle says, the first of which is set in Japan. “Batgirl will be Babs on solo adventures, continuing that vibe of a young, twenty-something superhero, carving out her own little corner in the coolest, scariest city in the world.”[/quote]

ça me plait de voir que DC va (globalement) conserver le trip sur Batgirl en renouvelant l’équipe.

C’était une chouette période.

J’étais pourtant très partant sur ce Rebirth. Une scénariste que je connais pas, un dessinateur que j’aime particulièrement et c’est pourtant la soupe à la grimace.

Rien ne colle, rien ne va.

Le départ vers le Japon pouvait s’apparenter à une bonne idée. Babs part se ressourcer et se renforcer avant de revenir à Burnside. Son roadtrip est une suite de maladresses en tout genre sans queue ni tête. Ce ne sont pas les quelques traits d’humour qui sauveront le titre.

Puis, RA doit vraiment se demander dans quelle galère il est pour rendre de si pauvres planches avec si peu de décors.

Bref, je donne ma démission.

Bien connu des lecteurs de la bande-dessinée Porcelaine, le dessinateur britannique Chris Wildgoose prendra la suite de Rafael Albuquerque sur la nouvelle série Batgirl.

On a eu la chance de s’entretenir un peu avec l’artiste lors du Paris Comic Con et il nous a révélé que la jeune Bat-héroïne fera la rencontre du charmant (et terrible ?) Ethan Cobblepot, fils du Penguin, lors de son retour à Burnside, Gotham.

Batgirl #7 sort en janvier 2017 sur un scénario de Hope Larson.

Le dernier épisode en date permet à RA de se retirer proprement avec plus de dynamisme et toujours aussi peu de décor.

Pour ma part, c’était mon dernier épisode. Je préfère cent fois miser sur “Mother Panic” ou le prochain “Batwoman”.
