Voici les dessins préparatoires de Sonny Liew:
[quote]Well, when Gardner wrote this in the first place, you couldn’t deal with ethnicity, you couldn’t deal with religion - they just didn’t exist in comics 75 years ago in America.
So here you have an Egyptian-American kid whose father was a doctor in Egypt, but is working as a cab driver in America, because he can’t be re-certified. I have known cab drivers in America who were Egyptians who had issues like that, with incredibly educated professions in their own country, who couldn’t practice them here. That’s not something you could have done 75 years ago.
I think, over the course of it, we’ll certainly touch on elements about how he’s integrating or not into American population. We’ll certainly, over time, touch upon his reaction to what’s going on in Egypt politically. You could never have done that years ago.
I’m not sure you could have done a scene set in the Brooklyn Museum or the Brooklyn Botanic Gardens years ago. You would have had some bowdlerized equivalent of it. That wasn’t terrible, but there’s a whole lot of things available now that weren’t then.[/quote]
