DETECTIVE COMICS #27-29: GOTHTOPIA (Collectif)

Avant de tirer leur révérence, le scénariste John Layman et le dessinateur Jason Fabok lanceront le crossover Gothtopia à travers leur segment du numéro anniversaire Detective Comics #27. Il sera ensuite partagé entre les numéro des séries “Batgirl,” “Batwing,” “Birds of Prey” et “Catwoman” de janvier, février et mars.

L’histoire se déroule dans un univers parallèle où “tous les rêves se réalisent… tant qu’on ne regarde pas de trop près.” Batwing y est le protecteur actuel de Gotham, Batgirl s’associe à la super-vilaine Knightfall, les Birds of Prey traquent Ra’s Al Ghul et “Catbird” est la seconde moitié du “dynamic duo”.

Le dessinateur Sean Murphy a présenté sur son compte twitter le premier Robin afro-américain qui fera ses débuts dans le crossover Gothtopia:

ça y est, le combat de la représentation des minorités et de la discrimination positive est lancée ! Et espérant qu’ils n’en deviennent pas ridicules et que ce soit fait avec sérieux !

L’éditeur DC Comics a présenté la couverture variante de “Detective Comics #27” réalisée par Jim Lee via une interview du scénariste Brad Meltzer accordée au site comicbookresources.com:

[quote=“Brad Meltzer”]To me, I think when you say that we’re “retelling” the first Batman story, it’s almost doing a disservice. It’s like we’re colorizing an old movie. You can do it, and you can modernize it, but it’s sort of robbing it of its soul. So what we wanted to do was honor the old story – to keep it in tact as much as we could. Then we could lay something new on top of it, so what you’ll see when you read this is that I tried to lay 75 years of Batman’s motivation on top of it. For me, when you look at the original story, the most beautiful part of it is that all the pieces are already there. He may not use the utility belt, but there it is. He may not like Commissioner Gordon, but there he is. All those little details and that stubbornness and determination is front and center.

And it’s amazing to see some of the other things in that first issue. Batman pushes someone into acid! Or maybe I should say that the bad guy falls into acid. I almost forgot that detail at the end of it.[/quote]

Une nouvelle image du segment réalisé par** Scott Snyder** en collaboration avec le dessinateur Sean Murphy présente le “Batman: Année 200”:

[quote=“Scott Snyder”][Morrison] said, openly to me, you’ll see how your version of Batman is going to die, or go down.

It’s my version of Batman Year 200. I’m a huge fan of Paul Pope’s Batman: Year 100, and of Batman Beyond, and Dark Knight Returns. I love those future versions of Batman. So for me, this is me really saying, well, what’s mine?

It is the end, for me. It’s not just a one-off. Whether or not DC would allow it to be the continuity of Batman, in my mind, it is the continuity of the Batman Greg and I are using. So in that way, there are a lot of spoilers in that story for things coming, both in regular Batman, in the series, and hopefully things I can return to.[/quote]
