CHAOS: THE CHOSEN (Michael Moreci / Rodriguez, Rodolpho)

Michael Moreci, fréquent collaborateur et ami de Tim Seeley, travaillera sur le “one-shot” Chaos: The Chosen pour la relance des séries Chaos Comics (Chaos, Purgatory, Chastity) orchestrées par l’éditeur Dynamite. Ce comics que l’auteur décrit comme “les X-Men de l’horreur” sera illustré par Ivan Rodriguez et Rod Rodolfo. La sortie est prévue pour octobre.

Ci-dessous, la couverture de Tom Raney.

[quote]In the first story I use Epitaph, who was Suspira’s nemesis back in the day. The idea is that Suspira had trapped Epitaph in hell, and he’s using his own mystic powers to possess a trio of young women who were dabbling in the dark arts to set him free—by gaining possession of the Death Skull! It’s silly fun, for sure, but Epitaph was a giant sleaze in the Chaos world, so it was enjoyable to bring him back, if only to give him some comeuppance once again.

In the second time story, I wanted to do something more standalone, to show how The Chosen function outside of the established Chaos universe. The monster is the giant squid-Cthulhu monster of the ocean. Sort of BPRD-esque, in a way.[/quote]
