PAST AWAYS #1-9 (Matt Kindt / Scott Kolins)

Trois ans après “Robotman” (publiée dans l’anthologie My Greatest Adventure), le scénariste Matt Kindt retrouve le dessinateur Scott Kolins sur Past Aways, une série d’aventure qui se veut plus décomplexée que ce sur quoi travaille habituellement l’auteur de Mind MGT.

Past Aways raconte comment quatre aventuriers du futur se retrouvent piégés dans le présent suite à l’apparition d’une faille temporelle d’où émergent nombre de créatures venues de différentes époques. Heureusement pour eux, ils semblent qu’ils aient acquis le don d’immortalité pendant leur voyage (puisque, techniquement, ils ne sont jamais nés).

Past Aways #1 sortira en mars 2015.

[size=150]INTERVIEW DU RESPONSABLE SCOTT ALLIE[/size]

Matt Kindt, je ne l’ai lu que dans JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA et SUICIDE SQUAD, pendant FOREVER EVIL. J’ai bien aimé son écriture en voix-off, mais à part ça, pas plus impressionné que ça. Cela dit, le concept a l’air sympa et, dans la forme, les petites notules explicatives peuvent être un outil intéressant (si elles sont bien gérées). Par contre, Kolins n’évolue vraiment pas beaucoup. Graphiquement, ça peut vite tourner en rond.

[quote=“Matt Kindt”]I’ve based their personalities on some of my favorite sci-fi writers. Frank Herbert (Herb) is one of them…and Margaret Atwood (Marge) is another.

I needed a starting point when I was building the characters so I used my idea of what the writer’s personality might be based on their fictional work – which was kind of a fun exercise.

Herb is more of an anthropologist, and Marge is concerned with what it all means. And then Arthur C. Clarke (Art) is the leader and the smartest guy in the room. Phil…inspired by Philip K. Dick is…well…he’s the strange one – and my favorite.[/quote]

[quote=“Scott Kolins”]More often than not – to me – it’s the bridging of our two takes, that is the most rewarding aspect of this book.

There’s a kind of fill-in-the-blank partnership going on. Matt writes a script that I draw – but his ideas give me more ideas, and I leave him with some crazy extra drawings.

We both get surprises and kind of feed off the energetic vibe of two talented creators who care about the book. It doesn’t always go as planned, but that’s part of the vitality.[/quote]

J’en suis au même point. Et je dirais même que la voix off m’a un peu enquiquiné (grosse facilité, sans invention). Ah si, j’ai lu aussi les épisodes de Frankenstein qu’il a faits après le départ de Lemire, et c’est pas mal, mais on sent la différence, et pas à son avantage. Donc ouais, pareil, je ne suis pas impressionné.

L’univers a l’air bien frappadingue, aussi.

Ça fait quelques années qu’il tourne en rond, mais il assure bien le côté narratif. Donc j’ai pas d’inquiétude. Ça a un côté solide et rassurant.
