PISCES #1-2 (Kurtis J. Wiebe / Johnnie Christmas)

A partir d’avril, l’éditeur Image Comics publiera la nouvelle série régulière du scénariste Kurtis J. Wiebe (Peter Panzerfaust, sRat Queen) intitulée Piesces.

Illustrée par Johnnie Christmas (Sheltered), la série suit le vétéran du Vietnam Dillon Carpenter sur plusieurs périodes de sa vie. L’histoire commence lorsqu’il revient du champ de bataille. Traumatisé par les évènements, hallucinant constamment sur le vide spatial, Dillon est envoyé dans l’espace en mission secrète pour la NASA.

[quote=“Wiebe”]I’d read an article about the Voyager mission, how the probe still sent data back to Earth 30 years later and I was kind of blown away.

I met up with Johnnie Christmas and Brandon Graham for coffee after I’d been reading about the Golden Record aspect of the Voyager program and talked jokingly about the idea that eventually became “Pisces.”

I’d said it more as a passing thought, but Johnnie called me up a few days later and said he couldn’t stop thinking about the idea and wanted to pursue it. When Johnnie said he wanted to do something with the idea, we just rolled with it. We’ve been working on the concept on and off since winter 2013, always refining the core story and making sure Dillon’s journey is grounded, no matter how bizarre the series may get.

We have created this together from the ground up; it’s equal parts of both of us.[/quote]
