SAINTS #1-9 (Sean Lewis / Benjamin Mackey)

Que se passe-t-il lorsque trois jeunes, Blaise, Lucy, et Sebastian, découvrent qu’ils sont le dernier rempart dans la guerre sainte qui oppose les forces du bien contre celles du mal alors que Dieu lui-même s’est détourné de la planète Terre depuis longtemps ?

C’est la question à laquelle répondront le scénariste Sean Lewis et le dessinateur Benjamin Mackey dans la nouvelle série Saints qui débute le sept octobre chez Image Comics.

[quote]Saints #1
Award-winning playwright and This American Life personality Sean Lewis teams up with red-hot artist Benjamin Mackey for an all-new ongoing series in SAINTS. Dexter-style action collides with a Preacher-esque sensibility in this crime-horror series that will launch on October 7th. - See more at: imagecomics.com/content/view/sa … Qc3Vo.dpuf

SAINTS begins when Blaise, Lucy, and Sebastian discover a Holy War is erupting and they, unwittingly, are the next generation of Saints poised to fight for a heaven that God has abandoned.

“I was drawn in the moment Ben pitched the idea to me: 'What if the Patron Saints returned to earth and their martyrdom became their superpower,” said Lewis. “I had gone to Catholic school, I’m first generation Irish-American, really deep in religious guilt—I thought it was brilliant. It’s been the most fun I’ve had writing something because it deals with things I’m really interested in. Deep things like what people believe in and why, but also funny and frivolous things like heavy metal. The book is thoughtful, for sure, but also insanely funny. Kind of like a Dogma on steroids. That’s what makes it a joy."

Mackey added: “In Saints, you have these characters, housing the souls of revered religious martyrs, that still need to eat, sleep, drink, and figure out what the hell is going on in their lives. I want to capture this balance of the contemporary mundanity with a classical sense of the monumental. Drawing on inspiration from John Singer Sargent, Giambattista Tiepolo, David Lynch, 19 Kids and Counting, Eastern Orthodox Icons, and Slipknot… I hope to create a visual milieu that although clean and simple on surface, houses a much more tumultuous interior life.”

The occult rises in this spectacular, action-packed new series that promises heavy metal, sex, and deadly one-liners at every turn.

SAINTS #1 (Diamond Code: AUG150481) will be available on Wednesday, October 7th. Final Order Cutoff deadline for retailers is Monday, September 14th.[/quote]
