BATMAN: EUROPA #1-4 (Casali, Azzarello/Camuncoli, Collectif)

Attendue depuis plus de 10 ans par de nombreux lecteurs, l’arlésienne Batman : Europa démarre ce mercredi 18 novembre aux États-Unis.

Imaginée par l’italien Matteo Casali avec Brian Azzarello (100 Bullets, DKIII: The Master Race), l’histoire voit le célèbre** justicier de Gotham** faire équipe avec son ennemi juré, le Joker, pour trouver un remède au mal qui le ronge lors d’une virée en Europe.

Originellement conçue comme un terrain de jeu pour les artistes Européens (d’où le titre), c’est finalement le dessinateur Giuseppe Camuncoli (Amazing Spider-Man) qui croque les 4 épisodes pour ses collègues Jim Lee (pour le premier numéro), Diego Latorre (pour le troisième) et Gérald Parel (pour le dernier).

The impossible has happened and Batman is on the verge of being taken down by an enemy he cannot defeat: a virus for which there is no cure! And the only hope for his salvation is The Joker! Who infected Batman, what does the Clown Prince of Crime know, and how will the Dark Knight get that information? Together, the enemies crisscross Europe, desperate to find answers before time runs out.

Co-conceived by Matteo Casali and Brian Azzarello, this 4-issue miniseries event will feature art by top talents over layouts by the incomparable Giuseppe Camuncoli (HELLBLAZER, Dark Wolverine), with the first issue pencilled and inked by none other than Jim Lee![/quote]

je sais pas si c’est Camuncoli, la couleur dire sans encrage, mais le style de Lee devient moins lisse et ça me plait bien plus que ce qu’il a pu pondre ces 15 dernières années.

Vu qu’il a pondu ces premières pages il y a au moins 11 ans, tu aimais finalement bien le Jim Lee de l’époque. :wink:

Ce style là oui clairement. Celui de Hush ou de Sup non.

J’adore son style sur Hush tout en puissance. Sur Supes, le trai était beau mais la narration compliquée avec Azza.

Mais sur ce qui est présenté, c’est bof quand même. Jim Lee est clairement mieux inspiré d’habitude. Et Scott Williams qui n’est pas là, ça n’embellit pas les choses…
