MYSTERY GIRL #1-3 (Paul Tobin / Alberto Albuquerque)

*Que feriez-vous si vous vous réveilliez un jour et que vous ne vous rappeliez absolument de rien vous concernant mais que vous pouviez répondre à toutes les autres questions ? *

Il s’agit des prémices de la nouvelle série de Paul Tobin (Colder: Toss the Bones) que publiera Dark Horse à partir de décembre: Mystery Girl.
Illustrée par Alberto Albuquerque (Letter 44), la série suit Trine dans sa petite routine de détective privée. Jusqu’au jour où une mystérieuse femme lui demande de retrouver la carcasse d’un… Mammouth !

[quote=“Paul Tobin”]I’ve said this many times in the past, but I never understand a writer that says, “I wouldn’t want to write such-and-such character, because they’re boring or stupid.” It’s like… damn. Don’t you know you’re the writer? If a character is boring or stupid, that’s on you. There isn’t any character where you can find something you love, some kernel, and make that thing grow.

In the case of Trine, the titular character of Mystery Girl, I was already in love with her, the mystery of her, the way she looks at life, her attitudes, etc, and then the story began to revolve around her… what it meant to be the Mystery Girl, the relationships she has, her friends and lovers, and the fact that she can solve all the mysteries, in fact has solved all the mysteries, except about herself, and how that affects her.[/quote]

SHE CAN SOLVE ANY MYSTERY BUT HER OWN!
Trine Hampstead knows everything. Ask her a question like “Where are my keys?” or “Is he cheating on me?” or “How are there perfectly preserved mammoths in recent ice?” and she just knows. She’s the Mystery Girl. The only thing Trine doesn’t know is how she knows—or anything else from the last ten years of her life.

“Paul Tobin and Alberto Alburquerque flip the mystery/detective genre on its head.”—Newsarama

Trine knows the answer to any question, except how she knows it. But that’s a mystery for later. The mystery for now concerns frozen mammoths in Siberia, and Trine, who never leaves London, wants to go see them herself. And close behind her is a killer who’s targeted Trine for reasons even she doesn’t know.

Ça m’a l’air pas mal du tout cette série, je vais me pencher dessus. :wink:

Un premier numéro bien sympa, et qui lance au moins trois intrigues ; reste à savoir comment elles vont être résolues parce que c’est quand même du lourd et que si je continue cette série, je ne me vois pas lire une de ces révélations passe-partout où le voyage (comprendre la lecture) est plus importante que la destination (comprendre les solutions aux énigmes).
Ce genre d’idée doit ou devrait avoir des résolutions à la hauteur de l’intérêt qu’elles suscitent.

Côté dessins c’est pas mal du tout, visages expressifs, décors, narration il ne manque rien.
