GOLD KEY ALLIANCE #1-5 (Phil Hester / Brent Peebles)

On pensait les propriétés Gold Key perdues depuis l’arrêt successif des séries Magnus : Robot Fighter, Turok : Dinosaur Hunter, Solar : Man of the Atom et Doctor Spektor : Master of the Occult, mais l’éditeur Dynamite annonce la publication de la mini-série crossover Gold Key Alliance, imaginée par Phil Hester et Brent Peeble, pour avril 2016.

Dans le premier numéro, les quatre héros tentent de comprendre comment ils se sont retrouvés à la même époque.

Un jour, je comprendrai la stratégie de Dynamite, qui achète des licences, publie une douzaine d’épisodes, et stoppe tout, gardant la licence quelques mois voire années. La licence végète, peut être oubliée ou être récupérée par un éditeur motivé, mais les années de gros silence et sans publication font mal.
Je pense ici par exemple au Phantom, heureusement repris par Hermes Press, mais il y a d’autres exemples…

Et puis, ils ont des choix esthétiques allant du pas joli au foireux. Et encore, les titres cités plus haut ont un peu échappé à la catastrophe ambiante. Mais en général, les séries Dynamite, même avec de super histoires, c’est pas beau. Ça n’aide pas.

Bah, c’est pas Avatar non plus. :smiley:

Au moins peut-on reconnaitre à Avatar une certaine cohérence.

[quote]In the classic Gold Key books, Magnus is a human hero raised by an enlightened robot to battle the wicked robots and general human complacency rampant in the year 4000 A.D. In this run, Magnus is an agent with the Diplomatic Security Service tasked with investigating the use of A.I. and robotics in foreign militaries around the world here in 2016.

Classic Samson is a barbarian hero defending the last remnants of humanity in and around the post-apocalyptic ruins of New York, now known as N’Yark. In our current continuity, Samson is the product of a covert scientific project called NY: Ark created to safeguard the existence of humanity should a nuclear war break out. Sadly, he was badly injured by a renegade scientist from the project and now wanders the streets of New York like a mentally unstable homeless man.

Turok and his kid sidekick Andar were valiant Native American warriors who found themselves cut off from their tribe in the Lost Valley, a hidden ecosystem still populated with dinosaurs, cavemen, and an abundance of peril. In our new continuity, Turok is the star of a nature show produced by Andar. The show focuses on Turok’s role as a ranger protecting endangered dinosaurs in the tribal park administered by Turok’s people. How and why dinosaurs survived in this corner of the southwest remains a mystery, but it has greatly enriched the tribe.

The classic Dr. Solar was a nuclear physicist transformed by an act of sabotage into a being capable of transforming his body from matter to energy at will, making him an almost incalculably powerful super hero. Our modern Dr. Solar is nearly the same, except she is a young woman who has decided to use her powers to directly benefit the oppressed rather than dress up in long underwear and electrocute bank robbers.[/quote]
