DEAD BODY ROAD #1-6 (Justin Jordan / Matteo Scalera)

Le nouveau projet indépendant Dead Body Road du scénariste Justin Jordan (Luther Strode) se fera toujours chez Image Comics, mais sous le label Skybound de Robert Kirkman.
Dans cette mini-série au relent de western moderne, l’ancien flic Gage poursuit ceux qu’il estime coupable du meurtre de sa femme. Le dessinateur Matteo Scalera (Black Science) se chargera de la partie graphique des 6 numéros.

Sortie de Dead Body Road #1 en novembre.

[quote=“Justin Jordan”]It is set in the modern day – I don’t want people to think it’s ‘Jonah Hex’ or ‘Lawless.’ I was a big fan of Westerns as a kid, and I actually still am – not to the extent that I’ve gone to see ‘The Lone Ranger’ as yet but a general thing," Jordan said. "I like the aesthetic and I spent some time in West Texas just getting to experience the actual desert and areas that are actually kinda desolate still. You can go miles and miles and miles without seeing a building, and the harshness of the terrain has a lot to do with the tone and feel of the book for me. I wanted to do a Western-type thing set in a modern setting so it’s got a real desert-dry feel to it.

"And like I said, I like crime and thrillers, so I wanted to see if I could cross some of that with the noir sensibilities and see what we’ve got.[/quote]

[size=150]INTERVIEW DU SCÉNARISTE JUSTIN JORDAN[/size]

[quote]Well, there’s definitely and intentionally a western influence to it. It’s meant to be, and I hope is, a modern western mixed with a heavy dose of crime and noir. It’s not especially horrorific, except maybe for that thing that Cobb does in issue one. That’s sort of horrory.

But, you know, I get influences from a lot of stuff. Take Cobb, for instance. Cobb is, although I don’t use the term in the book, a standover man, which is an Australian thing, where a criminal basically makes his living finding criminals who have pulled off a big score and robbing them.

I first became acquainted with the concept when I read Idoru, a William Gibson sci fi book fifteen, twenty years ago, which featured an exstandover man as a minor character. So you can draw a line from that book to this comic in the person of Fletcher Cobb.[/quote]

Oui c’est vrai…mais c’est à peu près tout :frowning:

Du Noir bien lambda, pas mal fait, mais très (trop) “écrit”, et se fondant dans la masse du genre entre un sous Tarantino (et c’est pas peu dire) ou un Tony Scott…
reste qu’en cette période de sorties assez calme, et avec le score qui va bien, ça se laisse pas mal lire, la preuve:

:arrow_right: bobd.over-blog.com/2014/07/accident-de-la-root-s-dead-body-road-vs-let-s-get-killed.html

La grosse différence, chez Murphy, c’est qu’il matière beaucoup plus à peu près tout, vêtements, véhicules, décors, personnages, traits de mouvements. Les choses sont, en définitive, plus lumineuses chez Murphy, qui n’utilise que très rarement des ombres profondes, mais préfère bien souvent jouer sur des systèmes de hachures, afin de faire ressortir un grain blanc dans la surface noire. Ce qui donne une profondeur incroyable à ses dessins.
J’aime bien les deux, et Scalera fait preuve d’un design d’une grande richesse sur Black Science, mais son approche du noir est plus radicale, peut-être plus simpliste.
