DEATH'S HEAD #1-4 (Tini Howard / Kei Zama)

Death’s Head, le chasseur de primes robotique créé par Simon Furman et Geoff Senior pour Marvel UK en 1987, sera de retour dans une nouvelle mini-série qui sera publiée à partir de juillet.

Pour l’occasion, le personnage aura droit à un nouveau look et fera équipe avec Wiccan et Hulkling.

L’équipe créative est composée de Tini Howard (Age of Conan : Bêlit) au scénario et Kei Zama (Transformers) aux dessins.

Tini Howard :

« The book starts out when Death’s Head realizes he’s not as good as he used to be. He’s told all the newer models do it better than you, and I was thinking about who would be a good character to pair with him. Wiccan and Hulkling team with him in this. »

J’ai survolé le Age of Conan : Bêlit, mais le graphisme m’a empêché de lire ; bon, ça n’avait pas l’air passionnant.
