When Jackson Hyde accepted the mantle of Aquaman, he didn’t expect to also have to mentor Andy Curry, Arthur and Mera’s teen daughter. Nor did he expect that he and Andy would get sucked into the Confluence—an interdimensional nexus that connects distant planets and galaxies through the One Great Ocean. And he certainly didn’t expect to lose Andy in the process of trying to find their way back home. Now Jackson’s not sure how long he’s been stuck in a prison on Neptune (five years?) or how many times he’s tried to escape (200 at least!). But today Jackson saw something in the water that gave him hope for the first time in a long time—and his captors have no idea what he’s got in store for them.

La fille d’Aquaman et de Mera élevée par le fils de Black Manta, c’est cocasse niveau continuité.

mais pas inintéressant pour le coup.

J’ai l’impression d’entendre ma grand-mère. On risque de perdre « du game » si on ne comprend pas la généalogie.

En même temps, les comics sont devenus essentiellement destinés aux fans acharnés.

C’est le cas depuis 1980, voir plus tôt si on en croit certains auteurs.

Bah, si tu peux lire et apprécier sans avoir besoin de connaître la généalogie, c’est juste le minimum.

Aperçu :

Pas mal !

Oh, la bonne surprise.
Brandon Thomas livre un récit classique mais très efficace, qui fonctionne très bien grâce aux bons dialogues et bonnes caractérisations du duo Jackson/Andy, vraiment très agréables ensemble. Jackson gagne d’ailleurs en charisme badass, c’est très impressionnant et fun. Le final est ultra cliché, mais ultra efficace.
D’autant que Daniel Sampere propose des planches superbes, très agréables et inspirées.

Typiquement un duo d’auteurs et de personnages que j’aimerais retrouver après Future State.

Andy Curry, daughter of Arthur and Mera, has had a pretty terrible month. Jackson Hyde, a.k.a. Aquaman, won’t stop calling her Aqualass when she’s told him a thousand times it’s Aquawoman. She’s manifested a new power that scares the absolute hell out of her. Oh, and she and Jackson just got ripped apart in the midst of a cosmic space ocean and she can’t find him anywhere! For the first time in her 14 years, Andy’s all alone-and it’s gonna take her wits, her will, and every single lesson Jackson ever taught her to survive.

Un jour,j’ai rencontré cette demoiselle.

Je lui ai dit:

« Tu sais:ce n’est pas parce que je dis tout le temps que c’est moche,les pieds que tu dois couper les tiens! »

Ok,je sors.

C’est très joli en tout cas.

Et très sympa’ à lire. J’aime particulièrement la relation Andy/Jackson, très fine et touchante. Les dessins sont très jolis, et l’ensemble est extrêmement prenant et positif.
Ca fait du bien de lire ça, et j’aimerais voir plus de ces personnages à ces âges avancés.
