CONVERGENCE: SHAZAM #1-2 (Jeff Parker / Evan ''Doc'' Shaner)

A noter que les deux compères ont travaillé précédemment sur la mini-série Flash Gordon chez Dynamite Entertainment.

Oh ouais ! J’adore les dessins d’Evan Shaner, il est parfait pour Shazam !

[quote]Jeff really did a great job of throwing all the toys that you really want to see in a story like this in there. Not that there’s so many characters or there’s so many different threads to follow, but in a way that I really think fans like myself would get excited about. Like I said, to me as a reader, even if I wasn’t drawing this, I would love this book. It’s just a pure celebration of the stuff that this comic is about.

I was surprised when I read the script for the first time at how much time we spend with [Shazam’s alter ego] Billy [Batson]. That’s always been an aspect of the comics, of course, that you spend just about as much time with Billy as you do with Cap. But considering we only had two issues, I really expected to see Billy for a sec and jump right to Cap. We get a really nice section with Billy and learn a little more about what who he is and what he brings to Captain Marvel. [/quote]

Graphiquement, ça tabasse.
Complètement dans la lignée Paul Smith / George Freeman.
Très chouette.
