CONVERGENCE: HARLEY QUINN #1-2 (Steve Pugh / Phil Winslade)

L’éditeur DC Comics vient de diffuser les premières informations sur les diptyques qui accompagneront le crossover Convergence pendant les mois d’avril et de mai. Les 10 titres annoncés paraitront la première semaine d’avril et renouent, pour la plupart, avec les héros traditionnels de l’univers DC Comics pré-New 52.

Le dessinateur Steve Pugh (Animal Man) s’essaie à l’écriture grâce à Harley Quinn. l’ancienne acolyte du Joker sera amenée à combattre le célébrissime Captain Carrot, le super-lapin cartoonesque, sous l’insistance de ses “sœurs du crimes”: Catwoman et Poison Ivy.
La partie graphique est signée Phil Winslade.

Steve Pugh en scénariste, c’est l’inconnu. Et Phil Winslade n’était peut-être pas le meilleur choix pour illustrer une histoire avec un pitch aussi foufou.

[quote]Yeah, sorry, this is all my fault! Harley and Carrot seemed like a perfect match to me. I couldn’t believe I was the only one who pitched the idea.

The initial concept was actually much darker — I had Harley balanced on the edge of sanity, and when Carrot shows up she’s not sure which side of her eyes he’s actually on, but as we opened it out, and added in the whole Gotham Sirens team, it became a much lighter battle of wits.

The main problem was how to pitch Harley (main weapons, big hammer and annoying voice) against Captain Carrot (main weapon super everything), but it turns out that poor rabbit still needs backup![/quote]
