Fin janvier, l’éditeur IDW Publishing publiera la première mini-série parrainée par Comics Experience (sur les quatre prévues).

Imaginé par Rob Anderson et l’artiste Fernando Melek, Creature Cops: Special Varmint Unit raconte comment deux agents de la « fourrière » se spécialisent dans la traque des créatures exotiques comme les Griffons, les Panda-chiens et les autres hybrides dangereux qui pullulent depuis plus de 20 ans.

[quote] I don’t see the animals as villains at all. Sure, an animal that’s a danger to humans has to be contained, which is where an animal control officer comes in, but that’s different than being villainous.

It’s like that old saying that working customer service wouldn’t be half bad if you didn’t have to deal with the customers. I think a lot of animal control officers would say the job wouldn’t be bad…if you didn’t have to deal with the people.

The animals may cause a lot of the conflict and action in the book, but the villains are most definitely human, and when it comes to humans, you never run out of compelling cases, right?[/quote]
