BATGIRL & BIRDS OF PREY #1-22 (Julie & Shawna Benson / collectif)

http://imageshack.com/a/img924/2784/RybAm4.png

L’un des titres les plus excitants de ce Rebirth selon Geoff Johns est Birds of Prey qui marque le premier travail des scénaristes de la télévision Julie Benson & Shawna Benson (The 100) dans le milieu des comics.

Cette nouvelle aventure du groupe féminin débute avec Barbara Gordon demandant l’aide à sa copine Black Canary pour découvrir qui est la nouvelle Oracle.

Au dessin, c’est aussi une jeune inconnue qui s’y colle : la dessinatrice Claire Roe dont le travail est à découvrir sur son blog.

Les couvertures sont signées Yanick Paquette et la sortie est prévue pour août.

Ça ressemble au pitch de Qui veut gagner des millions ? ; ouais c’est en effet excitant.

la dessinatrice a l’air très douée. Une émule de paul pope ?

“WHO IS ORACLE” Chapter One: Batgirl and Black Canary are together again, working a case that strikes right at the heart of their partnership! Someone’s uncovered the greatest secret Barbara Gordon ever kept: her time as Oracle, the most powerful hacker on the planet. And not only do they know her secret, they’re using her name to sell dangerous information to criminals! Now one of those deals has brought some major heat to Gotham City…Helena Bertinelli is out of Spyral, wearing the hood of the Huntress, and making mafia blood run in the streets! Everything you thought was hidden will be revealed if the Oracle has their way…

“Who Is Oracle?” part one! Someone has stolen the name Oracle right out of Barbara Gordon’s past! Hot on this false Oracle’s trail, Batgirl, Black Canary, and Huntress are all tracking the same mafia capo…so it makes sense to team up, right? Problem is, Barbara and Dinah need the secrets locked up in Oracle’s brain…and Helena Bertinelli would rather put a crossbow bolt right through it!

“WHO IS ORACLE?” part 3! Batgirl, Black Canary, and Huntress must team up with the GCPD to protect a mafia capo from an attack by his one-time friends! He’s the only man with a lead on the nefarious new Oracle…but dead men tell no tales! Of course, it’s hard to make a team-up work when the team’s ready to tear itself apart on its first mission![/quote]

Ce n’est pas une mauvais série en soi. Mais il faut reconnaître que le dessin est assez moyen et pas très glamour. Et la caractérisation d’Huntress est d’une boucherie ou comment passer de la Matronne de Spyral à une juvénile gonzesse au rabais.

Un petit peu dommage.

La caractérisation de Huntress reste calamiteuse. Je me pose la question de savoir si les scénaristes ont lu la série Grayson où Héléna est sublime de classe et dans ses réflexions. Là, elle a vraiment le charisme d’une gamine de cinq ans…

Par contre, je suis sensible aux flashbacks dédiés à Black Canary qui revient en force chez DC. Sans atteindre le WTF du DCyou, cela me fait plaisir de reprendre l’intrigue sur sa mère. D’ailleurs, est-ce elle ce fameux Oracle? Si c’est le cas, c’est un peu scénarisé à la truelle…

Enfin, ça reste toujours pas très beau…

Comme vous pouvez le constater (pages ci-dessus à l’appui), la révélation autour d’Oracle est un véritable pétard mouillé… limite foutage de gueule.

C’est girly limite sauce idiote sans la fraîcheur du run de Stewart/Fletcher/Tarr.

Je vais abandonner sereinement. L’esprit tranquille.

“Who Is Oracle?” conclusion! The new Oracle has put the Birds in an untenable position—do what Oracle wants, or their whole lives get made public! So how do they turn the tables? And now that Huntress has Fenice in her sights, can she pull the trigger? She’s never hesitated to kill before…so why now?

Description: “Blackbird” part one! There’s something strange afoot in Gotham City - someone’s making promises to the world’s deadliest killers, offering them things well beyond the powers of a mortal human to provide! Unfortunately, Nightwing’s been caught in the crossfire and is badly hurt… good thing he’s not the exact person whose presence is most likely to make things weird between Batgirl and Huntress, right?
