[quote]Ruben is not your average alcoholic; he’s an unstoppable superhero who derives his powers from imbibing massive amounts of alcohol. After all the disasters it’s caused in his personal life, he’s ready to get clean . . . and the city’s supervillains couldn’t be happier!

“What I like so much about the book is that while it has these wild superhero trappings, at its core it’s a very sweet and very personal story about the relationship between power and addiction, and the very real consequences of both,” states Donny Cates. “It’s something that really interests me, and I think that sometimes we approach issues like these in comics as punch lines. What we’ve really tried to do here is take something really devastating and horrible, and examine it through a very familiar terrain. Also, there is a character named Panteradactyl. So there’s that.”[/quote]

Ruben’s attempt at a twelve-step recovery stalls before it begins, as an army of supervillains, led by his old nemesis Brutal Juice, assembles against him. But the alcohol-fueled superhero won’t give up yet . . . and before this blood-soaked issue is through, one of them will recognize a HIGHER POWER.[/quote]

C’est pas mal du tout Buzzkill. J’avais un peu peur de trouver un comics de surface, piégé par son pitch de “gros bourrin alcoolisé” mais on sent que l’équipe scénaristique a plusieurs As dans leurs manches. Le thème offre quelques scènes cocasses comme quand le héros clame, pendant qu’il boit un café, que toutes les drogues modifient son organisme. C’est une idée aux possibilités infinies. Et c’est plutôt joli a regarder.

Je vais surveiller la suite de près, pour voir si ils arrivent à se recycler.

Ruben’s greatest enemy has awakened from his catatonic state. The last time they clashed, their battle laid the city to waste. Can a newly sober Ruben take on this monster from his past without resorting to the alcohol that’s always generated his superpowers? The compelling miniseries comes to a gut-punching conclusion![/quote]

Aura-t-on la chance de lire la suite de Buzzkill ? Si ce n’est pas impossible, le scénariste Donny Cates a en tout cas confirmé à Mark Waid qu’il retrouverait Mark Reznicek et Geoff Shaw sur un nouveau projet Dark Horse.

(En supplément, le premier numéro de* Buzzkill* est disponible à la lecture, gratuitement.)

[quote=“Donny Cates”]It’s funny you should ask that, Mr. Waid! I’m happy to announce that Geoff Shaw and I (along with Dr.Blaqk himself, Eliot Rahal) are reuniting for a big, cool…thing. I’m afraid that’s all I’m allowed to say right now but I think people will be very happy with the book.

As an apology for not being able to tell you guys stuff, here’s the First Issue of Buzzkill on me!! Please enjoy, tell a friend and tell your retailer you want a copy of the trade, out on APRIL 2nd!![/quote]
