JUSTICE INC. THE AVENGER #1-6 (Mark Waid / Ronilson Freire)

Après la conclusion de la saga Justice Inc., le justicier à la peau crayeuse (ou “l’homme d’acier” comme certains l’appelaient) fera son retour chez Dynamite Entertainement dans la série Justice Inc. The Avenger sous la supervision d’un de ses plus fervents admirateurs, le scénariste Mark Waid (Daredevil, The Green Hornet, S.H.I.E.L.D.), et les crayons du dessinateur Ronilson Freire.

The Avenger est un héros “pulp” créé dans les années 30 comme un hybride entre les deux autres célèbres justiciers de l’éditeur Street and Smith: Doc Savage et le Shadow.
Self-Made Man, millionnaire, aventurier globe-trotteur, Richard Henry Benson voit sa vie basculer le jour où sa femme et sa fille sont assassinées. Transformé par l’évènement, jurant de se vengeur des malfrats, Benson se découvre la capacité de sculpter son visage tandis que sa peau et ses cheveux deviennent blanc.
C’est à l’écrivain Paul Ernst que revint la tache de raconter ses origines, très vite aidé par Lester Dent et Walter B. Gibson. Il fut d’ailleurs publié sous le “nom de plume” Kenneth Robeson qui fut aussi le pseudonyme emprunté par les auteurs de Doc Savage.

Malgré cela, le personnage ne connu jamais un grand succès, ni en roman (seulement 28 épisodes pour 181 de Doc Savage), ni en comics (malgré l’apport d’artistes comme Jack Kirby ou Kyle Baker).

Ci-dessous, les couvertures de Alex Ross, Marc Laming, Barry Kitson, Walter Simonson, ainsi que quelques pages de Freire pour le premier numéro qui sortira en juin prochain:

Meet Richard Henry Benson–the Avenger! His pallid features forever deadened by a criminal act, he is the ultimate master of disguise and uses his skills to mete out retribution to those who would prey on the innocent! But can even Benson triumph over an Invisible Man…? Fan-favorite writer Mark Waid – who is hotter than ever thanks to his work on Daredevil and Star Wars: Princess Leia – brings his personal favorite pulp hero back to comics with all-new, explosive adventures!
“Having the opportunity to dive into the psyche of a crimefighter as unique as Benson has been a lifelong dream,” says Waid. “I’ve been thinking about what his life and mind would be like ever since I read my first Avenger paperback back in the day. How does a man live his life when he has nothing to live for but justice? How does he navigate in a world of life and love and joy when his own features are frozen and stiff like putty, mirroring his cold, dead insides? I’ve been aching to write this story!”[/quote]
