NIGHTHAWK #1-6 (David Walker / Ramon Villalobos)

Suite aux événements de Secret Wars, le Nighthawk de l’univers Supreme Power créé par J. Michael Straczynski et Gary Frank se retrouve dans le All-New, All-Different Marvel, bien décidé à poursuivre son combat contre le crime…par tous les moyens qu’il juge nécessaire.

Il le fera aux côtés de l’Escadron Suprême, dans la nouvelle série de James Robinson et Leonard Kirk, et dans un titre solo confié au scénariste David Walker (Shaft, Cyborg) qui l’opposera au crime organisé de la ville de Chicago.

Le nom du dessinateur n’a pas encore été révélé.

[quote=“David Walker”]Me and my editors at Marvel keep talking about how dark this book is going to be, and I keep telling people at Marvel, “There are heroes. There are villains. And then there’s Nighthawk.” There’s always been this relationship between super heroes and, say, representatives of law enforcement where some cops will look at the heroes and say, “You guys are doing more harm than good.” And others will look at them and think they’re doing a really good job, but with Nighthawk the police are as terrified of him as the criminals are.

Even the community is asking, “What is this guy here for?” His position is, “At some point you’ll thank me. Right now though you’re just going to have to learn to deal with all of the blood.”[/quote]

Il y avait déjà Moon Knight comme Batman de Marvel, non ?

ou Daredevil aussi.

Ah, on peut pinailler sur les pouvoirs de Daredevil et sur le look, aussi.

Moon Knight aussi à des pouvoirs.

Hum, c’est beaucoup moins prégnant et évident.

Mais pas sur certains de ces ennemis.

Le scénariste David Walker et le dessinateur Ramon Villalobos ont confirmé l’annulation de la série Nighthawk sur leurs comptes twitter.
L’épisode 6 sera le dernier.

[quote=“David F. Walker”]Marvel has been very supportive of Nighthawk, especially Axel, who has been in our corner. But the market is not supporting the book.

Bottom line – sales figures on NIGHTHAWK were low. Books with low sales often face a grim fate. That’s the nature of the business.

All I can say is this, both Nighthawk & Tilda will be around. Marvel has made it clear that they want more of both.[/quote]

[quote=“Ramon Villalobos”]By now youve probably seen nighthawk wont continue past 6. Couple thoughts, thanks to all that supported/continue to support the movement.

At the end of the day sales matter. Marvel was always wildly supportive but it is what it is. Just gratful to have been apart of it at all

Z’ont pas perdu de temps, pour le coup !

Je viens de lire les quatre premiers numéros - une bonne, grosse surprise.
Je n’en attendais rien, et je débarque dans un récit sombre, dur, sans aucun super-héroïsme, où on parle d’émeutes raciales, de meurtres de jeunes Noirs par des policiers Blancs à Chicago, de groupes d’extrême-droite qui veulent “rendre l’Amérique grande à nouveau”, d’un serial-killer qui s’en prend aux Blancs ayant tué des Noirs et s’en étant sortis.
C’est dur, c’est perturbant, c’est troublant ; c’est gore, glauque, sans aucun espoir ou presque, où le “héros” est un psychopathe plus digne du Punisher que de Batman lui-même. Mais ça se lit très bien, c’est dynamique, il y a une vraie caractérisation, c’est un polar terrible et sombre, avec un aspect graphique très prononcé et très adapté. J’adore également.

Une réussite.
Je suis fan, j’ai hâte de lire la suite et fin. Quel choc imprévu !

Il fait partie de ses comics avec les plus faibles ventes marvel ever en dessous de 15 000 ex avec les hyperions, Red Wolf… et d autres…
Ils ont pas mis longtemps mais les ventes ce st du jamais vu… dans le mauvais sens
En esperant que le TP en fasse un sleeper ou au moins un comics culte…
je lis pas mal de bonne reviews…
