BATMAN/CATWOMAN SPECIAL (Tom King / John Paul Leon, collectif)

En juillet, la maxi-série Batman/Catwoman de Tom King fera une petite pause, le temps d’un interlude dessiné par John Paul Leon.

« This July, the Eisner nominated Black Death in America team of Tom King and John Paul Leon will reunite for a one-shot interlude in Tom King, Clay Mann, and Tomeu Morey’s twelve-issue Batman/Catwoman comic book maxiseries. This special one-off issue, meticulously illustrated by John Paul Leon (Batman: Creature of the Night) with color by Dave Stewart, traces the life of Selina Kyle from her earliest days to her entry into the criminal underworld, and reveals that Bruce was actually a presence in her life all along. Some great romances are destined to be. »

Il y a pire comme remplacement.

L’équipe de dessinateurs de folie. Tu prends tout là, la classique, la variante, … Tout.

Ca va être la régalade le TP

Bien content de le revoir : j’avais cru comprendre qu’il était malade, donc c’est bien cool qu’il soit au générique d’un truc à grosse visibilité.

Ce qui est assez incroyable, c’est depuis le début, c’est du casting All-stars sur tous les titres.

C’est le cas.

Sortie repoussée à décembre.

Damn! Il existe deux sujets!

Pour mettre l’accent sur les dessins de John Paul Leon, j’ai préféré ouvrir un autre sujet, oui. Et hélas, on a depuis appris la très triste nouvelle…
Il n’y a pas encore de communiqué de DC sur le sujet, donc on ne sait pas encore si Leon avait terminé son travail sur le special ou si un autre dessinateur a été appelé en renfort (vu le délai, ça devrait être la deuxième)…

Sortie repoussée à une date indéterminée.

Ca pourrait faire un bel hommage à ce magnifique artiste. J’espère que DC va bien choyer ce numéro (si) spécial.

Tom King :

« This is still getting made and released, incredible artists are working on it as I type. It’s been delayed because we’re making sure we get it right in terms paying tribute to JP. Some of that work takes time. It’s worth it. »

Le Special sortira en janvier et devient un hommage à John Paul Leon en passant de 48 à 80 pages. Parmi les dessinateurs invités, il y aura notamment Tommy Lee Edwards, Bernard Chang et Mitch Gerads.

Le détail du numéro :

The Batman/Catwoman series has been showing us the romance between Bruce Wayne and Selina Kyle as it has changed over their lives, but what about their connections from BEFORE they became costumed adventurers? The upcoming Batman/Catwoman Special (on shelves Tuesday January 25) traces the life of Selina Kyle from its earliest days to her entry into the criminal underworld and reveals that Bruce was a presence in her life all along. Whether fate or coincidence, it’s even more of a reason why the Bat/Cat romance is one of the most enduring love affairs in all of comics.

Now expanded to celebrate the legacy of iconic artist John Paul Leon , whose untimely passing after a long battle with cancer shocked the comics world this past May, this special will feature the work Leon completed for the original story plus tributes to the renowned artist created in his name by some of his closest friends and admirers. Bernard Chang , Shawn Crystal , Mitch Gerads , and Dave Stewart will bring the original story to its conclusion, lettered by Clayton Cowles, while comics’ top artists gather to celebrate Leon’s creative legacy through pin-up pages and essays in the special, including Lee Bermejo , Denys Cowan , Joëlle Jones , Dave Gibbons , Walter Simonson , and more.

Batman/Catwoman Special #1 will publish on January 25, 2022 with a cover by John Paul Leon and variant covers by Lee Weeks and Bill Sienkiewicz .
