SEVEN TO ETERNITY #1-14 (Rick Remender / Jerome Opeña)

« Nous suivons un chevalier mourant, membre d’une famille disgraciée. Il a saisi l’opportunité de sauver le monde d’une force maléfique connue comme le « Dieu des Murmures ». En son sein, il s’agit avant tout d’une histoire sur la compromission. »

Installé correctement chez Image Comics depuis près de deux ans, le scénariste Rick Remender (Deadly Class, Black Science, Low) fait venir son partenaire de longue date, le dessinateur Jerome Opeña (Fear Agent, Uncanny X-Force), pour travailler sur la nouvelle série Seven To Eternity.

Si l’on en croit Remender, la série est un véritable défi graphique pour Opeña qui s’inspire ici des travaux d’un certain Mœbius. Il sera aidé par le coloriste Matt Hollingsworth.

Le premier numéro sort cet automne.

Oui, enfin ça, c’est la soupe à servir aux Américains.
Mais les Français (gens de bon goût et de grande culture, c’est bien connu), savent déjà que ça sera pas un grand défi pour Opeña.
D’une part parce qu’il est très bon. D’autre part parce qu’il est déjà inspiré de Moebius.

YEAH. Je parlais justement de cet ouvrage avec Matt Hollingsworth. Il travaille dessus depuis plus de deux mois.

Et il trouve ça bien ?

Writer Rick Remender reteams with collaborators Jerome Opeña (Uncanny X-Force, Fear Agent) and Matt Hollingsworth (TOKYO GHOST, WYTCHES) to bring readers a modern fantasy series following Adam Osidis, a dying knight from a disgraced house, on a mission to rid his world of an insidious God who ensnared him in a Faustian deal.

“Jerome and I began working together at Image ten years ago on titles such as Strange Girl and Fear Agent so it’s very fitting we return now to tell the tale of the Seven to Eternity. All those years ago we began discussing doing an epic fantasy tale at some point, should the planets ever align. A unique take on the familiar genre full of action, unexpected twists, totally unique characters and a villain who might end up stealing the show,” said Remender. “It’s taken us a decade to get it together, but the wait was worth it. During the past decade we’ve collaborated on numerous projects and fine-tuned our mighty nerd skills to a point where what we create here will eclipse our past collaborations. At least I know the art is Jerome’s best to date. Everyone loves Jerome and Matt Hollingsworth, but once their powers were mixed into the art cauldron something new and terrifying was born, a new level of sequential science. Hyperbole be dammed, there will be no better looking comic book in the world of human peoples.”

Gharils Sulm, The God of Whispers is a Machiavellian warlord who holds sway everywhere in the world of Zhal. He’s spread an omnipresent paranoia to every corner of the kingdoms; one of his spies hides in every house, every family, every hall, spreading mistrust and fear.

Adam must choose between joining a hopeless band of magic users in their desperate bid to free their world of the evil God’s burden or give in to the The God of Whispers’ promises of salvation and safety.

The series is set to launch in the Fall of 2016.[/quote]

[quote]We wanted to have a set of rules because you don’t want magic to be too prevalent, otherwise it stops mattering. What I came up with was a very simple system. So in Zahl, life is seen as the seed that gives birth to spirit energy. Life is crude and is merely a vessel to grow spirit energy. There’s a paper-thin boundary between our world and the spirit world and some people have the power to communicate between the worlds and gain powers from these spirits. They are called Mosak. Some can summon them, some can control them, some can use them for illusion or energy powers. There’s very few Mosak here. Adam’s own particular power is that he can talk to the dead and ask for gifts from his ancestors but that only really only works if he has some of their blood.

So, he has a bunch of bullets with their blood in them and in the first issue he loses all of them except four or five. I like that because it limits his abilities so when he uses them, it will have to be in dire circumstances.[/quote]

[quote]There’s a rookie move that people make where they build massive worlds like this and they just dump it on you. It’s like “Then the 17th storm came! And the 15th wizard rose!”

So one thing I wanted to be able to do was to put on my dungeon master cap and have some fun with that stuff so there was an inherent sense of logic to this place. Magic is very tricky and I didn’t want it to be like, “I call forth the Ice Lords!” So we came up with a very simple idea, which is that the wall between the spirit realm and the physical realm is much thinner in this world and some people can call on spirits to help them. So each one of the characters who are Mosak have the ability to call on spirits for different kinds of abilities. There are very few of them. [/quote]

Seven to Eternity reprendra en novembre pour un ultime arc narratif. La série s’arrêtera au #17.

Le début assez lent semblait lancer une série qui aurait pris de l’ampleur sur la durée, en tous cas j’ai l’impression que les ambitions de départ des auteurs étaient sur un titre plus long. Mais je suis content si on peut déjà avoir une conclusion (en espérant qu’Urban ne tarde pas trop à publier cet ultime tome, parce qu’on attend toujours les deux derniers de East of West…)
