Bon début de saga.
Je n’ai pas lu la première intrigue, parce que la saga Infected ne m’intéresse pas vraiment, mais je suis venu parce que j’aime beaucoup Nick Derington depuis Batman : Universe.
Là, je me suis bien amusé avec ce bon numéro. Joshua Williamson a une bonne idée (Zod récupère Kandor, détruite par Rogol Zaar, et ses habitants pour utiliser un Puits de Lazare et les ramener ; Ra’s s’y oppose, et collabore avec Batman et Superman pour l’empêcher) et l’utilise bien. Les interactions sont bonnes et fluides, les deux super-vilains sont bien écrits, les réactions des héros avec aussi.
C’est bien fait. Et c’est surtout très beau, dans ce style clair, fluide et dynamique de Derington. J’aime vraiment, vraiment beaucoup, et j’ai hâte de lire la suite.

Bonne fin de saga.
Joshua Williamson livre une intrigue courte, intense, intelligente. Les personnages sont bien écrits, cohérents, autant du côté des héros que des vilains. Ca fonctionne, c’est dynamique, vif, nerveux. Fun et émouvant.
Du bon boulot. Notamment superbement illustré par un Nick Derington dont j’aime de plus en plus le style. Ses planches sont magnifiques, idéales pour moi.
Je ne sais pas s’il poursuit, je reste tant qu’il est là. C’est un des rares dessinateurs que je suis, ça fait plaisir !
