BODIES #1-7 (Si Spencer / Omston, Winslade, Hetrick, Lotay)

En juillet, le scénariste Si Spencer (X-Force, Numbercruncher) lancera Bodies chez Vertigo. Il s’agit d’une mini-série en huit numéros qui suit quatre enquêtes similaires se déroulant à quatre époques très différentes: à la fin du XIXème siècle, pendant la deuxième Guerre Mondiale, dans le présent (2014) et dans le futur (2050). Chaque numéro sera divisé en quatre chapitres de six pages illustrés respectivement par Dean Ormston, Phil Winslade, Meghan Hetrick et Tula Lotay.

[quote=“Si Spurrier”]The initial pitch was, “four time periods, four detectives, four murders – same M.O, same location, same victim…. someone’s being murdered — forever” ….and that pretty much covers it. Four detectives are each investigating a brutal and inexplicable murder, each believing it has something to do with a larger case they’re already engaged in. They’re all wrong – it’s far bigger than that. …]

Other than that, I can’t tell you much without spoilers other than the basic thumbnail sketches – Edmond Hillinghead is a buttoned down Conan Doyle fan trying to bring science to a police force that essentially exists to protect the rich; Charles Whiteman is a Polish émigré, career-criminal who fled the Nazis and signed up with the London police; Shahara Hassan is a fast-tracked female Muslim detective in the London Mets and Maplewood is an amnesiac cop trying to police the few survivors of an apocalypse while struggling to remember who she is at any given moment.[/quote]

VERTIGO brings you the miniseries of the summer, with four detectives, four time periods, and four dead bodies – all set in London. Edmond Hillinghead is an 1890s overachiever who’s trying to solve a murder no one cares about while hiding his own secret. Karl Whiteman is our dashing 1940s adventurer with a shocking past. Shahara Hasan is 2014’s kickass female Detective Sergeant, who walks the line between religion and power. And Maplewood, an amnesiac from post-apocalyptic 2050, brings a haunting perspective to it all. Si Spencer (HELLBLAZER: CITY OF DEMONS, THE VINYL UNDERGROUND) executes a centuries-spanning murder mystery like nothing you’ve ever seen before, with four sensational artists illustrating a six-page chapter in each issue: Dean Ormston, Phil Winslade, Meghan Hetrick and Tula Lotay.

[quote]If you read “Bodies” #1 often and closely enough, you’ll see that the stories are already crossing over, but that will become more apparent as we unpeel the onion, I promise. And it’s interesting that you mention time travel because the possibility of that was one of my first questions, too – but then I realized there was this much simpler invention called “history.” The only time machine you need to research Jack the Ripper, ancient Egypt or Genghis Khan is a book so look out for some research on the part of our characters.

Then there’s the question of defining time travel itself – science fiction often gets very bogged down in a very prosaic linear mechanical model of transport. The TARDIS is essentially a funny shaped car with extraordinary specs but does time travel even need a vehicle? In a quantum world filled with chaos theory and chaos magick where a single electron may exist simultaneously at every time and point in space why would you need a glorified truck? Is a ghost a present day person seeing a vision of the past? Or a time traveller jaunting forward in time to observe us? And what about past life regression, shamanic journeying, astral planes? Is that time travel? Has that got anything to do with the book? Maybe, maybe not.[/quote]

With four bodies lying on mortuary slabs, speculation mounts from a century ago to the present day as to the identity of the victim. In wartime Britain and a forgetful future, however, living strangers are causing confusion. A hooker’s kiss, a fine young cannibal, a fascist mob and a suspect who literally falls from the heavens will send muddy ripples through history. The time-travelling serial-killer story heats up![/quote]
