“INVISIBLE REPUBLIC, is first and foremost a sci-fi, action-adventure story. My background as an illustrator and storyboard artist for films like Inception and the X-Men movies means that designing exciting action sequences is what I do,” said Hardman. “That said, the kind of stories Corinna and I tell are always human-scale. They’re point of view driven, not spectacle driven. Serialized comics, especially creator-owned comics, are the perfect medium for telling stories with real stakes where anything can happen. Any character can die. The audience can’t trust that everything will be happy in the end. Comics are perfect for telling stories that take narrative risks and reward close attention, in short, everything that works so well on cable television dramas now.”
Conceived as the epic history of the rise of an empire, INVISIBLE REPUBLIC is nonetheless told on an intimate scale. While hunting for a human-interest story during a humanitarian crisis, reporter Croger Babb uncovers the four-decade-old journal of Maia Reveron, detailing what she knows about the legendary Arthur McBride. Maia has been erased from all the official histories, but she alone knows what Arthur is really capable of.
Bechko added: “Maia Reveron is a woman who has been expunged from the history books but who knows many secrets. This may be science fiction, but this is hardly an unknown phenomenon in our own world. It’s rare that those in power give much thought to the people who could reveal their own ‘secret histories,’ especially if the people holding the secrets happen to be female. And sometimes, they overlook them at their peril. Gabriel and I have always enjoyed writing ‘poli-sci-fi’ and here we have the chance to imbue Arthur and Maia’s story with all the drama, pathos, and adventure we’ve been dying to unleash.”[/quote]

Oui, il faut juste que tu améliores ton anglais, c’est ça ? :mrgreen:

La vache, on dirait mon patron !

C’est peut-être lui. Tin-tin-tin (suspense) !

Creative team GABRIEL HARDMAN (KINSKI, “Intense” - A.V. Club) and CORINNA BECHKO brought you sci-fi adventure before (Planet of the Apes, Star Wars: Legacy, Hulk) but never this gritty or this epic.[/quote]

Quelqu’un lit ça ? (pinaise, c’est joli !)

Ca à l’air excellent.

Ça va venir. :wink:

Alors oui c’est joli, mais question scénario c’est plutôt lent très lent ; d’autant que pour l’instant (à moins que quelque chose m’ait échappé) les enjeux (ou l’enjeu ?) est assez flou.
Bref lire ce titre mensuellement doit être peu captivant, je viens de me lire deux numéros à la suite et j’ai beaucoup de mal à rentrer dans l’histoire.
Je vais pousser encore un peu pour voir …

Merci pour ton retour ! C’est dommage que, pour le moment, le scénar’ ne suive pas !

Ecoute je viens de lire les 3 suivants, j’en suis donc au 5ème numéro, et ça commence à m’intéresser ; reste qu’il a fallu un peu de temps.
Cependant si ça paraît en V.F ça sera sous forme de recueil donc ça accrochera mieux, en outre ça n’est que mon avis peut-être qu’un autre lecteur accrochera dés le 1er épisode ?

Encore faut-il que ça sorte en VF !
