ELEANOR & THE EGRET #1-5 (John Layman / Sam Kieth)

La jeune et ambitieuse AfterShock - petite maison d’édition fondée en avril 2015 par Mike Marts et Joe Pruett - rassemble les deux amis John Layman (Chew) et Sam Kieth (The Maxx) pour accoucher de Eleanor & the Egret #1.

Cette mini-série en 5 numéros est décrite comme “un conte légèrement surréaliste sur une voleuse d’œuvres d’art et son partenaire, un héron parlant. L’aventure prend de l’ampleur alors que le duo se lance dans le vol audacieux des peintures les plus populaires et échappe à ses poursuivants dans un jeu du chat et de la souris aussi bizarre que dangereux.”

La dernière collaboration entre les deux compères, la mini-série Aliens : Inhuman Condition chez Dark Horse, remonte à 2012.

Eleanor & the Egret #1 parait le 5 avril 2017 avec une couverture alternative signée Elizabeth Torque.

The most daring art thief in Paris has struck again, and the police have assigned their best detective to the case. His only clue? A single white feather left at the scene.

Presenting a peculiar and unforgettable tale of birds and banditry, paintings and pets, larceny, love and…lamprey-wielding assassins? From the legendary creator of THE MAXX and co-creator of SANDMAN, Sam Kieth, and the considerably less-legendary creator of CHEW, John Layman![/quote]

What kind of thief leaves a single feather at the scene of the crime? Perhaps one that has a talking, painting-eating, oversized Egret as a pet—a pet that gets more oversized the more paintings he eats! Sounds fun, right? Except for some of the people now determined to stop this thief, who is anything but!
