Il y a aura notamment un nouveau chapitre des aventures de la Doom Patrol, sous-titrée Weight of the Worlds. Gerard Way écrira la série avec Jeremy Lambert et plusieurs noms sont annoncés à la partie graphique, dont James Harvey, Evan « Doc » Shaner, Nick Pitarra et Becky Cloonan.

Le #1 sortira le 3 juillet.


Le communiqué officiel :

DC’s Young Animal is returning this July with the next chapter of its flagship title, plus two new, innovative stories. The pop-up imprint curated by My Chemical Romance front man Gerard Way will kick things off on July 3 with DOOM PATROL: WEIGHT OF THE WORLDS, followed by COLLAPSER on July 17 and FAR SECTOR in late 2019.

With these new series come new creative teams, with Mikey Way (MCR), Shaun Simon (Neverboy, Killjoys) and acclaimed artist Ilias Kyriazis (G.I. Joe: First Strike) introducing COLLAPSER, and author N.K. Jemisin (The Broken Earth, Inheritance trilogies) making her comic book writing debut with FAR SECTOR, a new and original Green Lantern story, alongside Jamal Campbell, artist of the breakout hit series, NAOMI. The next phase of Gerard Way’s DOOM PATROL will team him up once again with Nick Derington for covers, with interior stories illustrated by a series of amazing artists beginning with James Harvey, followed by Doc Shaner, Nick Pitarra, Becky Cloonan and more.

“We are thrilled to revitalize DOOM PATROL, and to present both COLLAPSER and FAR SECTOR, two books that push the medium of comics and their respective genres through uncharted territory,” says Gerard Way. “Readers can expect everything from high doses of cosmic weirdness and positivity, to deep examinations of anxiety and emotions while wielding immense power, to sci-fi explorations of authority and control and what it means to be a guardian while a world hangs in delicate balance. More fantastic comics outside the norm, as only DC’s Young Animal can do.”

Liam James is a wannabe DJ whose life goals are almost completely dashed by his crippling anxiety—until a package arrives in the mail containing a black hole that gives him amazing powers and draws him into a cosmic conflict far beyond anything he’d ever imagined. But Liam will discover that when it comes to life, love, mental health and superhero responsibilities, there’s no such thing as a quick fix, and that power comes with a cost.

Series debut: 2019

Newly chosen Green Lantern Sojourner “Jo” Mullein has been protecting the City Enduring, a massive metropolis of 20 billion people, for the past six months. The City has maintained peace for over 500 years by stripping its citizens of their ability to feel. As a result, violent crime is virtually unheard of, and murder is nonexistent.

But that’s all about to change.

This new series introduces a dizzying game of politics and philosophies as Jo discovers a brewing revolution in the City, aided and abetted by some of its most powerful citizens.

DC’s Young Animal continues to stretch the boundaries of creativity with experimental and genre-pushing stories. This next phase of the pop-up imprint solidifies its place as comics for dangerous humans.

Tiens au fait il est question d’une vf pour la série précédente ?

Il n’y a toujours pas d’infos sur une potentielle publication V.F. des titres Young Animal

Bon, DC parie encore sur tout ça, c’est bien.


Dommage que Nick Delighton ne soit plus de la partie mais j’applaudis!!

Tu as ta réponse, maintenant…:wink:

L’épisode 13 est fabuleux!

Alors il s’agit de la suite directe de la première année établie par Way et Derington. Les personnages sont très rapidement remis dans la sens de la marche par le biais de petites bulles explicatives bienvenues.

A cela, l’écriture me paraît plus fluide. Devons-nous voir l’apport de Jeremy Lambert, fils de Christophe? Il n’y a qu’un pas. Et cela n’est pas pour me déplaire.

A suivre donc.

Série annulée. Le #7 sera le dernier.

Ca n’aura pas duré longtemps la hype de Doom patrol…

La lose pour urban qui je crois à publier les 6 premiers.

Non, Urban vient de publier l’intégralité de la précédente série Doom Patrol de Way (12 numéros)…

ah c’est une précédente maxi oki.

Là, je pense que laisser la roue libre comme Young Animal à Gerard Way montre les limites de l’exercice. Les épisodes précédents sont plutôt bons (le dernier Flex) avec de bonnes idées (le 3 avec les notes du futur éditorial DC). Mais je pense que le produit est indéfinissable.

La seule bonne nouvelle c’est le retour de Derington pour le dernier numéro. Dommage…
