POP! #1-4 (Curt Pires / Jason Copland)

Que se passerait-il si, dans une société où les “popstars” sont de purs produits de marchandising développés par les plus riches (et les plus dépravés), l’une d’elle s’enfuyait ? C’est la question que se posent le scénariste Curt Pires (Theremin) et le dessinateur Jason Copland dans la mini-série en quatre chapitres Pop! qui paraitra fin aout chez Dark Horse.

[quote]What if the world’s pop stars and celebrities were literally products, grown by the world’s wealthiest (and most depraved) minds—and one of them escaped? Dark Horse presents the new four-issue miniseries Pop!

Smart and savage! Sexy and scathing! Writer Curt Pires (Theremin, LP) and artist Jason Copland (Daredevil, RoboCop, Kill All Monsters) deliver a series that’s original, exciting, and sure to draw attention!

As unique as it is entertaining, Pop is a white-knuckled thrill ride through the marketing-mastered, technologically tethered tragicomedy we call life.

Praise for Curt Pires and Jason Copland:
Multiversity Comics named Curt Pires a Creator to Watch in 2013
ComicBook.com named Jason Copland a Creator to Watch in 2014

“The best comics step outside of themselves. Be it through playing with the paneling, the perspective, the art, or the storytelling. Curt Pires achieves all of these things.”—Bloody Disgusting

“Pires hits that happy medium that many sci-fi scripters aim for.”—Multiversity Comics

“Curt Pires has played with convention, reality and rules of story telling. He also fits in some introspection throughout the books. It is risky and can create a lot of difficulty for the audience, but Pires has been largely successful in creating a very bold and unique book.”—All Comic

Voici les quatre première pages de Pop! #1:

[quote=“Curt Pires”]“POP” is the third and final act in a thematic trilogy I’ve been penning about music. “LP” and “Theremin” being the other two acts. “POP” differs from the other two books in a few major ways.

One: I’m not the person I was when I was writing “LP” or when I started “Theremin.” I feel like every book is an extension of me, and that, by nature, means that “POP” is a different book.

Two: “POP” is ostensibly a book about people. It’s much more human than either of my earlier books. “LP” was a very nihilistic book, “Theremin” was a book about a man in the most nihilistic profession possible struggling to retain a sense of beauty and wonder and self inside of that world, and this is a book about humans. About the beauty of being human. About the damage we cause to ourselves, about the damage others inflict upon us. About pain, joy and everything in between.

Three: “POP” is a comic about America. It’s a comic about the bloated corpse of mass culture, and the men, the women, the animals, who feed slices of it to the masses, who monetize it. [/quote]
