Grand admirateur de la série Shade the Changing Man, le scénariste Tim Seeley (Revival, Batman Eternal) s’associe à la dessinatrice Marley Zarcone pour réaliser son rêve: proposer sa nouvelle série Effigy chez Vertigo.
*Chondra Jackson, ancien enfant star d’hollywood, retourne dans sa ville natale après une affaire sordide de Sex Tape. Sur place, elle tombe sur un crime faisant écho à un épisode de la série “Star Cop” qui l’avait révélée au grand publique. En enquêtant, Chondra découvre un culte qui vénère les célébrités et élimine la concurrence. *
Le premier numéro de Effigy sortira en janvier.
[quote=“Tim Seeley”]Totally. It’s a weird reality when people know my name or people on TV shows but there are far more important people like researchers studying cancer that no one knows. Why am I someone that has to go on Facebook and Twitter to promote myself when what I do doesn’t seem that important in the grand scheme of things? That’s definitely a part of it.
And going to so many conventions, as I have in the past 12 years, I’ve spent a lot of time with actors and famous people and I’m always fascinated by what their lives become after they’ve been famous. Their job becomes appealing to those people that still love them for what they were but they are actually no longer actively famous anymore. I am fascinated by this lifestyle of I used to be on a thing. Everyone who works in any kind of entertainment industry is always counting down the days between this is what I do, and now I am no longer famous. [/quote]
