OH, KILLSTRIKE #1-4 (Max Bemis / Logan Faerber)

Après l’exploration d’une société totalitaire en devenir dans Evil Empire, le scénariste (et ancien leader du groupe Say Anything) Max Bemis s’attaque à l’entité paternelle dans la série Oh, Killstrike fortement influencée par ses lectures des 90’s.

Illustrée par Logan Faerber, l’histoire suit Jared, un père plus intéressé par les forums sur l’univers des comics que par ses propres enfants. Tout change lorsque le héros de sa jeunesse, le violent justicier Killstrike, débarque sur son pas-de-porte et le force à prendre ses responsabilités envers sa famille.

Le premier numéro sort le 20 mai prochain.

[quote]The character was his favorite when he was like, 10, and now he’s a complete joke to him, which tends to be a lot of Millennials’ experience with the '90s anti-hero comics. It’s become a common blog joke. It’s the most common thing to slander the comic fan of the '90s, early Image comics, the things that Todd McFarlane, Rob Liefeld and all those people were doing. At this point, he’s such an elitist comic jerk that he actually hates the fact that this character has come to life because it represents everything he’s embarrassed of in his past. Basically, he has to shepherd around this huge, hulking behemoth of a character who’s a complete embarrassment, and be able to live with himself. He has to develop a relationship with him while he’s on this quest. The real journey of the book is Jared’s quest to find his absentee father. Killstrike is kind of his guide and it turns into this farcical buddy comedy that’s quite dark.

It all goes back to me becoming a father. I had to examine my relationship with my parents, my relationship with my self, my wife and everyone in order to be the best person possible. Thankfully, I’m the type of dude who’s been in therapy for my whole life, so there was a period of intense self-loathing – and then I pulled myself out of it because I have an amazing family and friends. My wife is amazing, my daughter is amazing, but I could see if I was a little pushed in any particular direction [that it would fall apart].[/quote]

What’s to Love: Say Anything frontman Max Bemis writes a love letter to 1990s superhero comics in this tongue-in-cheek homage to the era, featuring the art stylings of Logan Faerber—reminiscent of works by Chip Zdarsky and Jeff Lemire. Much like Polarity, Oh, Killstrike is very personal to Bemis: It’s about a new dad who loves comics from his youth. Part twisted buddy comedy, part profound coming-of-age story, we couldn’t stop smiling when reading Oh, Killstrike.
What It Is: Jared, a new father, fears parenthood. An old comics fan, he turns to them for comfort. But when he unwittingly lets loose his favorite character, Killstrike—a single-minded, vengeance-loving anti-hero—onto the world, Jared must find a way to send him back before he harms all the people he loves the most. But before that happens, Killstrike leads Jared on a quest of self-discovery to make him realize the kid who loved this character is not the man he has become.[/quote]
