CIVIL WAR II : GODS OF WAR #1-4 (Dan Abnett / Emilio Laiso)

On savait la série Hercules en danger suite à des ventes insuffisantes, voilà que Marvel Comics remplace le titre, dès juin, par la série affiliée Civil War II : Gods of War.

Le scénariste Dan Abnett continuera d’y raconter les aventures d’un fils de Zeus tellement vilipendé par ses confrères Vengeurs qu’il décide de mener sa propre quête avec l’aide de ses amis, les Dieux de la Guerre.

L’équipe comprend son coloc’ Gilgamesh ; Ire la prêtresse ; ses anciens allées nordiques Sigurd et Lorelei ; ainsi que Theseus et Beowulf (!). Leur mission ? s’occuper d’une menace de niveau A pendant que les Vengeurs sont trop occupés à se taper dessus (encore une fois).

La partie graphique de cette mini-série en six chapitres a été confiée à Emilio Laiso qu’on a déjà pu voir à l’œuvre sur Hercules #2. La couverture est signée Jay Anacleto.

Ah, le grand fêtard et grande-gueule qui fait le job tandis que ses copains, plus “sérieux”, se tapent dessus et passent à côté de la menace, c’est une inversion des rôles plutôt rigolote.

Le Hulk absolument génial rejoint Hercules dans sa quête :
