Shane Davis continue à produire de pures horreurs.
Voilà un mystère, pour moi.

Jim

Pareil et vu son style je ne comprends pas trop sa place ici. Les autres sont influencé par le King ou assez grand pour donnez une illusion, mais là, non je ne comprends pas.

Supers one-shots en perspective!

Je dis oui!

Faut juste espérer que Dan Didio soit en vacances pendant ce temps-là.

Je ne le connaissais pas spécialement, mais en voyant le premier visuel, je me suis effectivement dit “Mon dieu, quelle horreur”, et j’ai eu peur… Heureusement que les suivants ont largement rattrapé ça !
L’illustration de Bruce Timm, en particulier, me semble particulièrement “Kirbyesque”…

Tori.

Tiens, je me suis la même réflexion !
La Sienkiewicz est magnifique !

J’avais gardé un bon souvenir de son travail sur l’annual traitant du retour de Jason Todd. Mais là, il est vrai que cela reste assez moche.

Voici les sollicitations des numéros spéciaux qui seront publiés en août, à l’occasion du 100ème anniversaire de la naissance de Jack Kirby. Chaque one-shot de 48 pages proposera plusieurs histoires, dont des rééditions du King Kirby, et des textes signés par Mark Evanier.

Une case du Sandman Special par Jon Bogdanove :

Jon Bogdanove : More Jack Kirby-esque fun from DC’s Kirby Celebration Sandman Special that Dan Jurgens wrote and I drew. We packed this story with as much fan-service as we could. Being fans ourselves, it gave us the chance to do at least a sample of many of our favorite of Jack’s signature tropes. Of course, my pages are brimming with Kirby Krackles-- but this is my favorite Kirby Effect.

Ah purée, le choc visuel.

Jim

Je suis un peu moins fan de la colo en revanche (sauf sur la dernière planche), mais sur papier, ça peut rendre moins flashy !

C’est un peu ce que je voulais dire : on a deux planches pourries, avec des visages plats, des mains bancales, des décors foireux, le tout encré à la sauce des années 1990, et d’un coup, paf, une double page qui promet une véritable vision, avec une compo parfaitement équilibrée malgré le fait qu’elle se dirige selon un axe droite-gauche. Non, vraiment, c’est le chaud et le froid, quoi, de quoi attraper la crève.

Jim

Ah, tu me rassures !

C’est vrai que ça fait un peu écrasé…

Pour rendre hommage à Kirby, ils auraient pu trouver mieux non?

On s’en émeut depuis mai. Avec des chevrotements dans la voix.

Jim

Le one-shot sur les New Gods fut très décevant : plat, convenu, creux.
Rien de neuf. Rien d’inventif.
L’hommage devient lourd quand il n’apporte rien et ne fait pas un pas de côté pour sublimer l’oeuvre originale. C’est le cas ici : c’est une histoire générique des New Gods, sans rien de plus ; creux, définitivement. Donc totalement dispensable, et oubliable. Voir déjà oublié.
