Profitant de sa notoriété actuelle chez Dark Horse, le scénariste Fred Van Lente (Conan the Avengers, Brain Boy, Project Black Sky) proposera la nouvelle série régulière Resurrectionists en novembre, avec Maurizio Rosenzweig (Clown Fatale) au dessin et Juan Doe à l’illustration des couvertures.
présenté comme un polar se déroulant en même temps dans l’Égypte ancienne et en 2015, l’histoire suit “les Résurrectionnistes”, des criminels spéciaux qui, en débloquant la mémoire de leurs vies passées (ainsi que la connaissance de leurs anciennes capacités), tentent depuis 3000 ans de voler un objet particulier.
Fred Van lente déclare avoir déjà deux autres projets personnels, dont un dans un état très avancé, à paraitre plus tard dans l’année chez Dark Horse.
Deux pages supplémentaires de Resurrectionists #1:
[quote=“Fred Van Lente”]The kernel of this story came about many years ago, when I was first starting out as a pro, researching a Rama-Tut story for Marvel Adventures: Fantastic Four — and the fact I was actually doing historical research for an issue of Marvel Adventures: Fantastic Four says pretty much all you need to know about me — and I came across a passage in a book about ancient Egypt that said that tomb robbing was an actual profession in the days of the Pharaohs. Resurrectionists would be hired by nobles to destroy the mummies and loot the tombs of their enemies to screw them in the afterlife.
And then I thought, well, what if our modern world was the afterlife, and reincarnation was eternal life? And you had these tomb robbers, trying over and over and over again to pull off the same heist for three thousand years, until finally, in our day, they look like they’re about to succeed. And that’s where Resurrectionists comes from.[/quote]

Are you near-death experienced? Framed architect-turned-thief Jericho Way has discovered he’s a Resurrectionist, one of a select group of people who can not only remember their past lives, but become them. Two groups are now after his services—the Sojourn corporation, which wants to exploit his powers for mysterious purposes, and a motley crew of modern-day tomb robbers who have been trying to pull the same impossible heist for 3,000 years—and if Jericho joins them, he may steal back his own future![/quote]
