ROCKET #1-6 (Al Ewing / Adam Gorham)

Après avoir été brièvement piégé sur Terre, Rocket Raccoon retourne dans l’espace dans une nouvelle série simplement intitulée Rocket.

La première couverture signée Mike Mayhew montre le Gardien de la Galaxie en compagnie de membres des Technets, ces chasseurs de primes interdimensionnels créés dans les années 80 par Chris Claremont et Alan Davis pour la série Excalibur.

Ecrit par le prolifique Al Ewing (The Ultimates, U.S. Avengers, The Royals) et dessiné par Adam Gorham, Rocket sera publié à partir de mai 2017.

Je ne sais pas quoi penser du pitch, mais en tout cas je trouve la couverture extrêmement cool. :mrgreen:

Franchement Al Ewing sur Rocket ça peut être très cool mais bon sang qu’il fasse 25/30 numéros please ! (et sans relaunch por favor…)

A quoi ça servirait s’il n’a des idées que pour 10 numéros ?

[quote]When [Editor] Jordan [D. White] approached me about doing the book, I’d been rereading a lot of Richard Stark’s Parker novels, and thinking how long it’d been since I’d had a crack at a noir crime story in a sci-fi locale. And then I read up on raccoons and found out they have very good hearing and a particularly good sense of touch… and suddenly I had an idea of Rocket as a natural safecracker, and the whole thing span out from there.
What it’s turned into is a kind of unique mix of hard-boiled crime and sci-fi madness with a fair amount of deadpan humor, which I think people will get on board with right from the off.[/quote]

A faire une bonne maxi série ? Comme Jenkins sur les inhumains ?

Oui, c’est ce que je dis ! Je vois qu’on est d’accord ! :wink:

Covers by: Mike Mayhew, Tim Bradstreet, Joe Jusko, David Mack, movie, animation.

Description: It’s a dirty universe out there, even when you’re not regularly mistaken for trash-foraging vermin. And it’s about to get dirtier. He thought his paws were clean, that he was on the up-and-up. But then an old flame swam back into his life, and he was back in the game… the heist game. If you need a safe cracked, a vault busted or a score taken…ask for Rocket. Just don’t call him a raccoon.

Je n’avais pas fait gaffe que ça faisait référence à la première série !

La première page ressemble très fortement a la première cover dessiné par Mike Mignola…
