DAY MEN #1-8 (Gagnon, Nelson / Stelfreeze)

Malgré un bref retour chez DC Comics (Action Comics), il aura fallu attendre 5 ans pour retrouver le dessinateur Brian Stelfreeze (Wednesday Comics) sur mensuel. C’est accompagné des scénaristes Matt Gagnon et Michael Alan Nelson (Supergirl) qu’il raconte l’histoire de la milice privée dite “Day Men”; des soldats entrainés à faire le sale boulot, de jour, pour la société secrète des vampires.

Sortie du premier numéro en juillet 2013.

Tiens, je ne sais pas pourquoi, mais j’étais persuadé que c’était une mini-série (sans doute la présence du trop rare Brian Stelfreeze au dessin…), mais en fait, c’est une on-going.
Bon, c’est quand même très bien. Je lis la livraison de la semaine et je reviens vous en parler.

Jim

Ouais. Je ne connaissais pas. C’est vachement chouette.

Stelfreeze explore des trucs à l’encrage assez incroyable, des matiérages de ses aplats noirs (qui, du coup, n’en sont plus, des aplats noirs) et ça donne un mouvement incroyable. C’est très beau.
Et le scénario, sur les premiers épisodes, est vraiment bien. Sur une base classique (les familles de vampires, le fantôme du Vieux Continent…), Gagnon construit une approche assez vigoureuse et novatrice.
Vraiment bien.

Jim

Tiens, j’étais passé à côté de ça.

Stelfreeze n’a pas le quart de la notoriété qu’il mérite. C’est toujours un grand plaisir de le lire. Si tu dis que le scénario tient bien la route, je vais surveiller de très près la sortie du TPB. Quelqu’un sait s’il a été annoncé ?

Il est sorti il y a plusieurs semaines déjà, à prix modique (9,99$).
