DC Comics vient d’annoncer la série “Bug!: The Adventures of Forager”, une nouvelle série de la collection Young Animal qui sera écrite et dessinée par la famille Allred (Lee, Mike & Laura) qui fera revivre l’un des héros du quatrième monde de Jack Kirby.

Le ***vivandier ***(de sa traduction française) était un des néo dieux de Néo Genesis, un traqueur et chasseur accoutré comme un insecte (ou une bestiole) . Il est rarement apparu en dehors du quatrième monde même s’il a joué un rôle clé dans les “52”.

[quote]“Ever since Mike and I read a battered copy of New Gods #9 in the waiting room before guitar lessons, we’ve loved Forager the Bug,” Lee Allred told the A.V. Club. “A kinetic action hero on one hand, an alienated, introspective youth on the other—he’s the quintessential Young Animal character. We’re taking Bug on a slam-bang, save-the-universe romp across DC’s Kirbyverse as we search for Bug’s true place in life. It’s a family team project about a family road trip. Don’t make us turn this Kirby car around!”

“If you gave me the chance to list the characters I’d most like to get my hands on from Kirby’s Fourth World, Forager the Bug sits squarely at the top," said Mike Allred. "And now we are throwing him into the DC’s Young Animal mix, winding him up and letting him go! When you add in our not-so-secret weapon of Laura’s magical colors, I couldn’t possibly be more pumped about this series!”

“I am absolutely thrilled to have the first family of comics, the Allreds, producing Bug!: The Adventures Of Forager,” said Gerard Way, curator of the Young Animal imprint. “This year, DC is celebrating the fantastic brain of Jack Kirby and this is our offering to that wonderful tribute. In Young Animal fashion, this miniseries takes an alternative look at a character from the past, Forager, who still has a few unturned stones in his history. The Allreds’ brand of wild and weird fits perfectly with what we are doing, and in some ways inspired various aspects of the imprint—so it only makes sense to bring them in to do what they do best. We can’t wait to show you what they’re cooking up and hope this is the first of many family projects for the imprint that they’ll be involved in.”[/quote]

Bug! The Adventures of Forager sera lancé le 10 Mai pour célébrer 2017 qui aurait pu être le centième anniversaire de Jack Kirby.

Au passage, c’est une idéee, qui fait… très… Silver Surfer tout ça

Cela indiquerait-il la fin du Silver Surfer de Slott ?

Un rôle clef dans le New 52?

La série 52. C’était dans l’article de Newsarama :

Mais j’avoue que je ne me rappelle pas de lui dans 52…

Il est fou lui ! Qu’est-ce qu’il fait au Doudou …


Forager is just one of the Hive before he breaks out of his cocoon and finds himself in a mysterious house in an unknown realm. There he meets all kinds of strange creatures: a ghostly girl, a talking teddy bear and otherworldly weirdos that have literally jumped out of his worst nightmares. But these interdimensional oddballs are nothing compared to the evil General Electric, who is on the hunt for a reality-bending metal that could alter the fabric of life itself. To stay one step ahead of him and preserve the multiverse, Forager must travel through alternate dimensions to seek the metal and, hopefully, catch up with that cagey stuffed bear. If he does it, will he finally be able to distinguish himself as a New God?

DC’s Young Animal celebrates Jack Kirby’s centenary with this new six-issue miniseries—and who better to tackle this task than the Eisner Award-winning Allred clan! Featuring scripts by Lee Allred (BATMAN ’66), art by Michael Allred (Silver Surfer) and colors by Laura Allred (Lady Killer), BUG! is truly a family affair.[/quote]

Quel dommage ! Ce fut, jusque-là, une réussite totale.

Lee Allred a ensuite précisé sur son compte twitter que les deux derniers épisodes sortiront en fin d’année, le #5 en novembre et le #6 en décembre.

Ca fait long quand même

Description: Part six of “The Domino Effect”! Chagra promised he wouldn’t alter reality until Forager returned to New Genesis, but did anyone actually believe him? Seems our beloved Bug might have. Luckily he’s got a savvy teddy bear and ghost girl around to keep him focused, or else he might fall apart like a house of cards!
