BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER #1-10 (Jordie Bellaire / Dan Mora, David Lopez)

Hier, une page se tournait pour le Buffyverse avec la publication du tout dernier comic-book Dark Horse de la Tueuse de Vampires. Et aujourd’hui, un nouveau chapitre commence avec l’officialisation de l’acquisition de la licence par Boom! Studios.

Les premières équipes créatives seront dévoilées prochainement…

Jeanine Schaefer (Boom!) : “I remember watching the premiere of Buffy the Vampire Slayer over twenty years ago, and the feeling of empowerment that came with seeing a girl get to kick ass and have flaws at the same time, and to not apologize for who she was. It’s an honor to oversee that world for a new generation and to bring them that same feeling of knowing your greatest power comes from being true to who you are“Buffy is about love at its core, love for your friends and yourself. The characters are allowed to be equal parts human and monster, and seeing them struggle to balance those parts of themselves, the same parts we all struggle with, is why it still resonates with audiences of all ages and backgrounds today.”

Nouveaux défis, nouveaux amis et ennemis…et aussi des visages connus !

Sous la supervision de Joss Whedon, c’est la scénariste et coloriste Jordie Bellaire (Redlands) qui écrira les nouvelles aventures de Buffy Summers…en faisant du Scooby Gang des ados de 2019 !

La partie graphique a été confiée à Dan Mora (Klaus).

Buffy the Vampire Slayer #1 sortira le 9 janvier.

“This is the Buffy Summers you know, who wants what every average teenager wants: friends at her new school, decent grades, and to escape her imposed destiny as the next in a long line of vampire slayers tasked with defeating the forces of evil. But the Slayer’s world looks a lot more like the one outside your window, as this new series brings her into a new era with new challenges, new friends…and a few enemies you might already recognize. The more things change, the more they stay the same, as the Gang – Giles, Willow, Xander, Cordelia and more – faces brand new Big Bads, and a threat lurking beneath the perfectly manicured exterior of Sunnydale High, confirming what every teenager has always known: high school truly is hell.”

WELCOME BACK TO THE HELLMOUTH, FOR THE FIRST TIME!

Dans le nouveau comic-book, le Maître, vilain emblématique de la saison 1 de la série télé, est une Maîtresse…Drusilla !

La couverture variante du #2 :

Oh, j’aime bien la Willow de Wada.

Drusilla en “Maîtresse”, il faut voir comment c’est justifié : comme une évolution du personnage par rapport à ce qui existait dans la série télé — ce qui serait plutôt cool et assez dans le ton de sa psychologie… particulière —, ou comme une totale recréation qui fusionne et redistribue les éléments des divers personnages, ce qui me aurait tendance à me laisser, a priori, plus circonspect.

La couverture du #3 par Kevin Wada :

Les chara designs de Dan Mora semblent confirmer qu’on est bien dans une recréation de la série télé, pas une suite. J’en reste donc à ma circonspection…

Eh bien, c’est ce que laissait entendre ma présentation…

On peut donc comparer ce comic-book à un remake moderne de la série TV…
