Voici une histoire courte de Moebius proposée à DC Comics mais refusée par ces derniers, d’où quelques changements notables. :mrgreen:
Elle a été ensuite publiée dans Penthouse Comix #7, en 1995.
Et voici quelques commentaires du créateur David Sim (Cerebus) à ce sujet :
[quote]Writing comes from the ability to put yourself in the place of your subject, so in potentially writing a Batman script I go “All right, I’m running across a rooftop in leotards with my underwear on the outside, a mask and a long flowing cape…” and at that point my reaction is: “I’m doing…WHAT!??” because I can’t separate Dave Sim, citizen of the real world from Dave Sim creator of imaginative fiction. If I try to go deeper than “I’m doing…WHAT!?!” all I see is the sort of intentional self-humiliation that running around in leotards and a mask and a long flowing cape suggests. That is, leaving out motive, all I come up with is that I’m wearing intentionally embarrassing clothing that is inappropriate as streetwear, a mask to hide my embarrassment behind anonymity and a long cape because this issues from suppressed homosexuality or really overt dandyism of some kind. When Moebius did his notorious Batman story (has anyone ever published that? I have a third generation fax by way of Frank Miller and Jo Duffy) I think he found the same thing. “I’ve never brought my creative mind to bear on the subject but you’ve asked me to do a Batman story so let me bring my creative mind to bear on the subject.” It doesn’t require any great depth of psychoanalytic examination. Asking Moebius to do a Batman story, I’m sure it was as if someone has come up to Moebius and said “I don’t know what’s wrong with me. Every week I go to the butcher shop and I buy a big sausage and I actually hate sausage. I take it home and I sit and caress it and pet it like a dog. And then I kiss it and hold it tenderly and shake it lightly. Tell me, Friend Moebius, why do you think I do this?” All that can be said is: Look, this is what this stuff is about pretty transparently. In deference to your obsessive interest in it, I will diplomatically say as little as possible. Moebius did a quick five-pager that went all the way into the transparent psychology of what Batman self-evidently is. It was the most diplomatic way of indicating both the problem and to indicate that you should really stop asking him about this, because he will give you an answer but it isn’t going to make you very happy. Which, from what I understand it definitely didn’t. Make the Batman editors very happy, I mean.
