JACKED #1-6 (Eric Kripke / John Higgins, Fabry)

Le scénariste Eric Kripke, créateur du succès télévisé Supernatural, lance la mini-série Jacked chez Vertigo avec le dessinateur John Higgins et l’illustrateur des couvertures Glenn Fabry à la fin du mois de novembre.

L’histoire suit Josh Jaffe, un quarantenaire au fond du trou qui décide d’essayer les pilules d’accroissement de l’intelligence trouvées sur internet. Leurs effets vont bien au-delà de ses espérances… Genre “vers l’infini” et au-delà. Mais Josh va rapidement découvrir que ses nouvelles super-capacités sont aussi addictives que destructrices.

A noter que la chaîne USA a déjà racheté les droits d’adaptation télévisée.

[quote]The original inspiration really came from a very personal place. I would say out of anything I’ve ever written, I would say Jacked is by far the most personal.

It came from the fact that basically, I turned 40, and like any good 40-year-old, had a midlife crisis and was asking a lot of questions about what the rest of my life was going to look like. And there’s this thing your body does for some reason when you turn 40, it’s like this alarm goes off and your body goes into rapid decline.

And you ask yourself these questions, [laughs], “What’s the rest of my life going to be like, and is it just going to be a slow and steady decline of downward potential and physical ability until you’re decrepit and dead?” At least I was having a classic midlife crisis.[/quote]

Le monde du **Web ** est petit & étrange, je viens justement de faire quelques recherches sur cette série après en avoir entendue “parler” dans un des derniers Judge Dredd. :slight_smile:

Josh Jaffe is living the dream: from suburban schlub to superhero in one easy swallow of a shady Internet drug. This is where his nightmare starts. Eric Kripke (Supernatural) and John Higgins (HELLBLAZER) bring an unflinching humanity and surreal level of detail to this tale of a midlife crisis—with superpowers![/quote]

J’ai lu les deux premiers numéros et pour l’instant ce qui s’y déroule est très prévisible.

C’est tout juste sympa, et il va m’en falloir un peu plus au niveau originalité (sur un thème pas mal rebattu sous quelque forme que ce soit) pour me faire continuer.

Quand je lis ce genre d’histoire, du moins les deux premier numéros, je me demande toujours : “Et si cette histoire avait été proposée par un autre type, un inconnu ? Est-ce qu’il aurait trouvé une oreille attentive ? Lui aurait-on laissé publier cette série ?”.

Parce que pour l’instant ça ressemble au genre d’idée que tout le monde peut avoir (ce que je comprends parfaitement) mais surtout, son traitement ne m’apparaît pas sortir de l’ordinaire.
Et c’est sur deuxième point qu’un scénariste doit faire la différence, du moins pour moi. :wink:

y a un film/serie/roman : limitless dont le pitch est très semblable.

Can Josh be a hero without being super? Will he still have a family to go back to? One way or the other, kicking an addiction proves harder than kicking some guys in the face as JACKED reaches its shocking conclusion.
