ROBIN WAR #1-2 (Tom King, collectif)

En décembre, le scénariste Tom King supervisera le crossover hebdomadaire Robin War en grand admirateur de sagas comme Inferno et X-Tinction Agenda. L’histoire principale se répartira entre les titres Robin: Son of Batman, Gotham Academy, We Are Robin, Grayson et Detective Comics avant de se conclure à travers deux one-shots écrits par King.

A noter qu’une “guerre” des robins (disons plutôt un match amical) avait déjà été présenté par Peter Tomasi et Patrick Gleason dans Batman & Robin. Damian Wayne avait alors affronté ses “rivaux” avant de leur voler un trophée pour prouver sa supériorité.
Sur la première couverture de Robin War, on peut voir la jeune teigne aux prises avec la nouvelle milice des robins auto-proclamés qui protègent maintenant les rues de Gotham.

Pour le moment, seul Khary Randolph a été annoncé au dessin. Ce dernier a pourtant été très rapidement remplacé par Jorge Corona sur We Are Robin.

Tom King commence à prendre pas mal de place. Ce n’est pas pour me déplaire.

Les sollicitations du crossover Robin War de décembre 2015 présentent le(s) grand(s) méchant(s) de l’histoire: la Cour des Hiboux !

Et dessiné en partie par Khary Randolph !

Qui est ?

Un dessinateur il me semble. Venant de l’animation surtout

Merci.
Et c’est un gage de qualité ?

C’est subjectif là. J’aime bien son style perso, c’est très dynamique mais assez particulier.

C’est très urbain surtout avec un peu de déformation. Mais c’est super agréable à suivre.

A mi-chemin, je dois déclarer que cette histoire sur le papier (qui est le prolongement de “We Are Robin”) me laisse très clairement sur la faim.

Un célèbre organisation gothamite refait surface avec comme objectif de mettre le zouk dans la ville. Derrière ce feu de paille, le véritable enjeu est de mettre la main sur le “Gray Son”.

Voilà pour le speech. Le déroulement général est assez plat et ce n’est pas un nouveau et original Duo Dynamique qui mettra le feu aux poudres.

Heureusement, cela ne dure qu’un mois.

Vivement que l’on passa à autre chose. Cette histoire manque cruellement d’intérêt alors que réunir les Robins laissait espérer de sacrées bonnes choses comme une bonne tartiflette made in Tomasi.

Le traitement de la Cour des Hiboux est bâclé. C’est Snyder qui doit être ERE.

[quote]We have such huge plans for the DCU and what’s coming in the next few months, in terms of how the whole universe interacts. I’ve been on the phone with Scott and Geoff Johns, and we’re trying to make a huge story that the fans will dig, and these events are sort of leading up to that story.

I like to think of it as almost those awesome events that happened before the weekly 52 launch? Like those kind of things? Like, that’s how I feel. There’s something big coming, and you’re just starting to hear the drumbeats.

You didn’t ask about how the Court of Owls has a court in every city.[/quote]
