CONVERGENCE: JUSTICE LEAGUE #1-2 (Frank Tieri / Cifuentes)

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.

Pour l’occasion, le scénariste Frank Tieri, aidé par le dessinateur Vicente Cifuentes, racontera les déboires d’une Ligue de Justice entièrement composée de membres féminins, notamment Supergirl, la magicienne Zatanna, la « Green Lantern » Jade et le bolide Jessie Quick.

Writer: Frank Tieri

When Supergirl, Zatanna, and Jade went to Jessie Quick’s baby shower, they didn’t expect to be taken to another planet for a year, or to be attacked by Flashpoint Aquaman.[/quote]

C’est la mini qui m’intéresse le moins, ce que j’ai lu de Frank Tieri ces derniers temps ne m’ayant pas tellement convaincu…

[quote]Well, first of all it’s JLA — it’s one of the premiere books in comics — so that’s what appealed to me immediately. And if it didn’t, then I’m really in the wrong business.

As for the story, once we determined it would be an all-female version of the team, it all kind of fell into place.

We knew Flashpoint Aquaman would be the aggressor and the one to attack first because he’s really such a bastard — but the question was, what would he be after?

At first I came up with the idea for him to go after Jesse Quick’s baby — the thought was that since he had lost his own son, Arthur Curry Jr., that he would want Jesse’s baby to raise as his own. Dan [DiDio] thought that might be a little too dark for the story we wanted to tell and that’s when we came around to Mera, who really was the perfect choice.[/quote]
