LUKE CAGE : CITY OF FIRE #1 (Ho Che Anderson / collectif)

Marvel annonce la mini-série Luke Cage : City of Fire, scénarisée par Ho Che Anderson (King - La Biographie non-officielle de Martin Luther King).

Chaque épisode sera illustré par un dessinateur différent : Farid Karami pour le #1, Ray-Anthony Height pour le #2 et Sean Damien Hill pour le #3.

« A shadowy rogue group named the Regulators are terrorizing ordinary citizens in New York City, and Luke Cage is called to action when a black man in his community is murdered by a crooked police officer. Cage quickly crosses paths with Daredevil, who is determined to bring down the Regulators no matter the cost, but Mayor Fisk is equally determined to use them to tighten his grip on the city. There is unrest in the streets, and it’s up to Cage to keep the city from going up in flames. »

Ho Che Anderson :

« I can’t express how excited I am to be doing a project with Marvel, and about the level of talent they’ve lined up to work on it with me, » Anderson said. « I have been given the freedom to explore a subject I’m so passionate about through the lens of characters I’ve loved since I was a kid, and I fully intend to work overtime to make sure the results are worthy of the trust I’ve been granted. Fortunately, the heavy lifting will be accomplished by my incredible collaborators who’ll make me look better than I am! »

Sortie repoussée au mois de décembre.

Ho Che Anderson :

MAN PLANS, GOD LAUGHS: No easy way to say this. I got the word Luke Cage got cancelled this morning, one month away from its premiere. The scripts are all written. The first issue is done and is a thing of absolute beauty. Issues 2 and 3 are deep into production. Covers have been drawn. People have gotten excited, and with good reason as far as I’m concerned. I remain as proud of this as any work I’ve ever done. Maybe someday it will be seen. But as of today this comic is dead in the water. If you want answers I am not the man to ask. My heart is broken. I’m taking a social media break to lick my wounds. Somewhere god is having a chuckle. Enjoy it.

Si c’est lancé et produit, les gars sont payés. C’est quand même bête de ne même pas vendre.
Est-ce que des ventes même minimes ne couvrent même pas les frais de production, d’impression ? Si oui, pourquoi lancer le projet, alors que le buzz Luke Cage est passé ?
