JOE FRANKENSTEIN #1-4 (Chuck Dixon / Graham Nolan)

Prévu à l’origine dans un format “roman graphique”, le projet Joe Frankenstein du scénariste Chuck Dixon et du dessinateur Graham Nolan sortira finalement sous la forme d’une mini-série en 4 numéros chez l’éditeur IDW Publishing.

L’orphelin Joe Pratt découvre qu’il est le descendant du célèbre Frankenstein quand le Monstre du même docteur le sauve d’une bande de vampires. De l’aveu du scénariste, ce projet renoue avec les comics fun et décomplexés d’une autre époque.

Ci-dessous, les pages présentées lors de la campagne de financement montée sur le site Indiegogo:

[quote=“Chuck Dixon”]Welcome Monster Lovers!
If you love classic monster movies and comics and remember the smell of Testor’s glue while putting together your Aurora model kits (and even if you don’t!) then this is the place for you!

Joe Frankenstein is the creation of longtime comic book creators, Graham Nolan and Chuck Dixon. A coming of age story of a boy, a monster and trying to live down a legacy he didn’t know he had.

We have a publisher (IDW) and are hard at work on this project. Come back often for updates and new posts of the various creative stages.

Thank you to everyone that contributed to our Indiegogo fundraising campaign! You are the best!

Time to get back in the lab…we’ve got a monster to make![/quote]

[quote]THE BRIDE. The re-animated female created as a mate for the Monster has also survived the centuries and followed a different path. The Bride does not have the Monster’s built in immortality and she has to find other means to keep her body alive. Transplants, radical surgeries, radiation and constant transfusions keep her ambulating through the years in search of the key that will make her physical form eternal…the encoded DNA carried in Joe Frankenstein’s body!

Baron Frankenstein, in creating a mate for his Monster, and not wanting to repeat the mistake he made with his first creation, used a different set of “materials”. As a result, the Bride walks the Earth as a decaying corpse.

The secret to life and death lies, encoded in the DNA of the Monster, by his creator. to unlock the secret, the mad genius encoded his own DNA with the “key”, to be passed down through his progeny. He called it, “blood memory”.

Both the Monster and his Bride share a valuable commodity: time.[/quote]

[quote]Using the techniques she stole from the Baron, the Bride
continued her work with the sole intention of keeping herself alive. Over the centuries she’s used the science of re-animation as a sellable product in the form of experimental age slowing treatments for the super wealthy. This has made her a very rich woman and in the 21st century, she sits atop a multi-national industrial empire. She’s spent billions trying to develop an alternative to the original Frankenstein DNA.
She also commands an army of supernatural creatures who, in addition to securing her grasp on power, are on a search for either her former “husband” or any descendant of the Barron carrying the genetic strain she needs to become immortal.[/quote]

Dixon et Nolan ensemble, je prends.
Les pages sont pas mal (malgré des couleurs pas subtiles), mais les croquis sont formidables.

La mini-série est encore d’actualité. Le dessinateur Graham Nolan a déclaré qu’il était au milieu du deuxième numéro:

[quote=“Graham Nolan”]“Joe Frankenstein” will be a four issue – 37 pages each – series published by IDW. Chuck and I plot the series together, then I break it down into its visual form and add suggested dialogue. Chuck polishes it up, then it comes back to me for final editing. Sort of the old Marvel method, except Kirby never got final say.

The basic story is about a boy, Joe Pratt, who discovers his true heritage, the hard way. When the Frankenstein monster saves him from a vampire coven, he finds out he is really Joe Frankenstein and that the Monster has watched over him his entire life, protecting him from the evil forces that are after his blood. Blood that is encoded with the secret of eternal life.

No release date, yet. I am halfway through the second issue, and I’d like to get three done before we solicit. The reason being, I have to work on it between paying jobs, and I don’t want to leave any retailers holding the bag for a project of mine that ships late. I want to make sure it arrives in stores when we say it will.[/quote]

[quote]Testor’s glue had a sharp petroleum smell. If you worked too much with it in an enclosed space, you got a little goofy. Especially when combined with open bottles of enamel paint. There were kids at school who sniffed it to get high. They all wound up riding the short bus to school.

I had shelves of the Aurora kits. My favorite was the Wolfman, mostly because he’s my favorite of the Universal monsters, bar none. I like him so much, I wanted to wear a black shirt and light tie like Lon Chaney, Jr. wore in the Abbot and Costello movie. I also like the Creature from the Black Lagoon. I bought a special metallic green paint for him, so he always looked wet![/quote]
