BLACK MARKET #1-4 (Frank J. Barbiere / Victor Santos)

Le scénariste Frank J. Barbiere (Five Ghosts, The White Suits, Blackout, Solar: Woman of the Atom) a le vent en poupe cette année. Dès juillet, il sortira sa nouvelle série Black Market chez Oni Press, en association avec le dessinateur Victor Santos (Furious)

Black Market suit la destinée de deux frère; Ray Willis, jeune homme brillant mais piégé dans le funérarium où il travaille, et Denny Willis, petit brigand à la semaine. Lorsque ce dernier réapparait en déclarant avoir trouvé le moyen de sauver tous le monde, Ray se doute qu’il devra se salir les mains, mais pas autant qu’en les enfonçant dans le corps des super-humains pour y extirper leurs secrets génétiques…

Ci-dessous, la couvertures de Black Market #1 par Victor Santos et Cameron Stewart, et quelques images du premier numéro.

Story by Frank J. Barbiere

Cover by Victor Santos, Cameron Stewart
Publisher Boom! Studios
Cover Price: $3.99
Release Date Wed, July 16th, 2014
WHY WE LOVE IT: Here at BOOM!, we’ve never shied away from exploring the dark crevices of the superhero genre that other publishers can’t. From Mark Waid’s IRREDEEMABLE to Mike Carey’s SUICIDE RISK, we love finding new ways to push the boundaries of our medium’s favorite genre.
WHY YOU’LL LOVE IT: BLACK MARKET mixes the visceral noir/pulp sensibilities of Frank J. Barbiere’s FIVE GHOSTS and Victor Santos’ FILTHY RICH with a truly modern take on superhero mythos. If you love Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips’ work on Sleeper like we do, this series is for you.
WHAT’S IT ABOUT: Ray Willis is a broken man, a disgraced medical examiner making ends meet by preparing corpses at a funeral parlor. His scientific genius is being wasted…that is, until his estranged criminal brother Denny shows up on his doorstep, supposedly cleaned-up and proposing a once-in-a-lifetime partnership to cure not just cancer, but all disease. The catch? It exists within the DNA of superheroes.[/quote]

[quote=“Frank Barbiere”]I’ve said this many times and I’ll say it again—it was Brian Bendis & Mike Oeming’s Powers that brought me back into comics, and Bendis always had a lot great tidbits to share about creating worlds. One thing he said that stuck with me was that he wasn’t ever going to tackle superheroes on his own (in a creator owned capacity that is) unless he felt he REALLY had something new to say.

With Black Market, I feel like I found something unique to say. This is very much a story about inequality, about normal people struggling against their superiors for the “greater good.” It was very important to ground the story with human characters who are absolutely astonished by the crazy things the Supers can do. It’s about dealing with things you can’t control and the prices we pay to do what we think is right.[/quote]
