KING TIGER #1-3 (Randy Stradley / Doug Wheatley)

Après Barbe Wire, c’est au tour du héros King Tiger de faire son come-back à travers une nouvelle série supervisée par son créateur, le scénariste Randy Stradley, et publiée sous le label Project Black Sky. Le personnage fut présenté dans Comics’ Greatest World ([size=85]plus ou moins le prédécesseur du PBS[/size]) comme un expert en arts martiaux pourchassant les démons dans le désert du Nevada au volant de sa Ford Thunderbird de 1963.

Stradley retrouvera pour l’occasion le dessinateur Doug Wheatley avec qui il travailla sur la série Star Wars: Dark Time avant de réintroduire brièvement le Roi Tigre dans de courts suppléments à la mini-série Blackout en 2013.

Le premier numéro sortira en aout.

[quote] Well, first and foremost, I’d say Doug’s art makes the biggest difference if you’re comparing King Tiger to other books on the stands. There are only a handful of artists today whose work includes the amount of detail and draftsmanship that Doug routinely puts into his. But Doug doesn’t just include detail for detail’s sake. Everything he chooses to include in a panel says something about the characters; how you should think of them, how you should feel about them. I’m so proud to be working with Doug, I could really go on for pages about him.

But the other thing about King Tiger that sets it apart from most of the action-adventure fare in comics is that we have something to say about life, people, and the human condition. Sure, there’s lots of action in the story—kung fu, swordplay, and that sort of thing. And there’s magic, and there are demons, and there’s wholesale death and destruction. But at its heart, this is a love story—about how love can change you and save you, even from yourself.[/quote]
