DOC FRANKENSTEIN, Vol.1 (Wachowski / Steve Skroce)

Malgré l’arrivée de Shaolin Cowboy (Geoff Darrow) chez Dark Horse, l’éditeur Burlyman Entertainment créé par Andy et Lana Wachowski est encore en vie. Fin mai, il publiera le premier volume de Doc Frankenstein compilant les quatre premiers numéros illustrés par** Steve Skroce**. Après quoi, les lecteurs devraient enfin pouvoir découvrir la fin de l’histoire avec la publication du 7ème et du 8ème numéro attendus depuis plus de sept ans.

La série raconte l’histoire du Monstre de Frankenstein après les évènements du livre de Mary Shelley. Il a depuis adopté le nom de son père et gagné son doctorat, et s’est très activement impliqué dans l’histoire du monde (Porteur d’arme dans l’Ouest Sauvage, Soldat pendant la deuxième Guerre Mondiale, soutenant la théorie de l’évolution pendant le procès Scopes ou l’idée de l’avortement aux cotés de Roe v. Wade). Cependant, ses nombreux voyages l’ont amené à se faire beaucoup d’ennemis dangereux qui refusent sa vision libérale du Monde.

[quote]Publisher: Burlyman Entertainment
An original graphic novel written by The Matrix writers and directors the Wachowskis which alone should be enough to sell this but here’s a little insight on the story: Have you ever wandered through life trying to find that one thing you felt like you were missing? That one thing you would do anything to protect? Doc Frankenstein has been wandering around for centuries trying to find a place he could call home, a place where he fits in. But each time he thinks he finds home it is taken away from him by the “Men of God”. If you enjoy action packed stories based throughout history about love, adventure, and faith than pick up this awesome graphic novel today.

Lors d’une interview pour le site Bleedingcool, le dessinateur Steve Skroce a confirmé l’existence de deux numéros de trente pages pour conclure ce premier volume, ainsi que son désire de se consacrer à nouveau au milieu du comics (et notamment à une deuxième série Doc Frankenstein):

[quote]There are two thirty page plus issues that I drew in between movie jobs over the last few years. Issues seven and eight complete the story arc and are in the second trade along with issues five and six. After so many years we thought it made more sense to just collect it all rather than try and put out comics that are, ahem, years late…]

I’m getting back into comics. I’ve been away too long. All the movie stuff has been great but comics are my first love and I’m still a huge fan and I read them constantly. I’d really like to get back out there and have my work seen by readers again. We’re talking about another Doc series but nothing to announce yet.[/quote]

[quote=“Steve Skroce”]Unfortunately I was seduced by the glamor of showbiz! I worked on a lot of movies over the last few years and that has been very exciting but it’s a regret that we didn’t deliver the books on as regular a basis as we should have and apologies to those fans who supported us but never saw the final issues come out. But I think the comic itself did benefit from the extra time and I hope the people who buy it feel that way too.
