DEPT. H #1-10 (Matt Kindt)

Après la conclusion de Mind MGMT, l’artiste Matt Kindt lancera sa nouvelle série indépendante Dept. H chez Dark Horse.
Lors du SDCC, l’auteur l’a décrit comme un mélange de la série télévisée 24 et du roman d’espionnage La Taupe mais se déroulant sous l’eau.

La femme de Matt Kindt, Sharlene, se chargera de coloriser la série Dept. H dans un style “peinture à l’eau”. Elle avait déjà participé à la réalisation de quelques pages sur la précédente série de l’auteur, Mind MGMT.

[quote]Mia is our “hero” and she was chosen because she’s both a detective, and the daughter of the man that is running the sea lab. She is both professionally and emotionally invested in the outcome of the mystery and the fate of the sea lab. We begin with Mia getting in the sub and heading miles-deep into the ocean. We’ll never really see the surface (other than flashbacks) for the entire series, so she will spend every issue under water.

She’s a little apprehensive, because her greatest fear is drowning and small enclosed spaces, so it’s really a going to be a living nightmare for her. I’m definitely drawing on some of my own deepest fears by tackling this book. I’m learning how to scuba dive as part of my research, and it’s really the last thing on Earth I want to learn how to do – but I need to know how it feels.[/quote]

[quote]I’ve been attracted to every kind of genre fiction since I was a kid. From Doc Savage, to Raymond Chandler to Tin Tin. So, I really love playing with those kind of elements – but also trying to ground those fantastical elements into a story with some heart. With real characters that you’ll care about. I’m constantly trying to come up with extreme or fantastical situations and then putting real characters into them to see what would happen but “for real.”

It’s kind of how I play video games some time (when I have time to actually play them.) If you ever play one of those shooting games – it’s really easy to just run around and play it like what it is…a video game – you die and re-spawn and just keep running around like crazy. That’s kind of how action movies and thrillers work. But sometime, try this – in a game where you can re-spawn and try again – try to go through the game as if that’s your only life – and it’s all “for real” – and see how different that game and the feeling you get playing it is…it’s kind of horrible and intense and it’s awful when you “die.” It’s a terrible way to play games but also an interesting kind of psychological experiment you can do to yourself.[/quote]
