SIRENS #1-6 (George Pérez)

Soucieux d’accoler son nom à une création originale, le dessinateur George Pérez s’associe à l’éditeur *Boom! Studio *pour son prochain projet. Il s’agira d’une mini-série en 6 numéros intitulée She-Devils.

Elle raconte le rassemblement des Sirènes, neuf terriennes à super-pouvoirs s’étant cachées à différentes époques historiques (la Rome antique, l’ouest sauvage, le Japon médiévale, le Londres victorien, etc…) pour fuir une organisation esclavagiste galactique pendant de nombreuses années.

La sortie du premier numéro est prévue pour septembre 2014.

Le site de l’éditeur:

Malgré une intervention chirurgicale au niveau des yeux, l’artiste George Pérez se consacre entièrement à la mini-série **Sirens **(et non plus She-Devils comme annoncé) dont les neuf protagonistes sont inspirés de vrais femmes qu’il a côtoyé.

Ci-dessous, les couvertures de Sirens #1, suivie des recherches de personnages (dans l’ordre: Agony, Ammo, Bombshell, Fanisha, Highness, Interface, Jazzy Jenny, Kage et Skywire)

[quote=“George Pérez”] Actually, my surgeries are still ongoing; I’m scheduled for cataract surgery in a couple of months, after some more treatments for my diabetic retinopathy. I’ve had to alter my inking style a bit to accommodate the optic issues, but I seem to be impressing a lot of people with the quality of my work despite my handicap. I must admit, I had some trepidation about taking up such an ambitious project, especially after nearly losing full use of my left eye, but it does feel pretty darn good to be at the drawing board again…]

The key difference here, though, is that every Siren, and much of the supporting cast, is modeled after a real person, many of them cosplayers I’ve met during my many years of convention-going. The time-spanning Highness is modeled after a beautiful cosplayer and fitness trainer named Margie Vizcarra Cox. Ammo, the former assassin and weapons maker, is my niece Milla Bishop. Agony, the battle-loving brute, is a model/wrestler named April Hunter. Bombshell, the energy blasting powerhouse is a lovely mother of three named Chan Graves Everest, and the other Sirens are famed cosplayer Miracole Burns as the electricity-wielding Skywire, fetish model Akira Lane as the sword-wielding warrior with ghostly abilities Kage (pronounced KAH-Jeh), cosplayers Jen Richards-Spooner as the doll-sized Figurine who packs a lot of punch for one so small, and Sherita Dunbar as the humanoid Interface who can merge with any computer. Last, but certainly not least, my dancer wife Carol “Phoenicia” Flynn as the mystic Fanisha – who has a way with dragons. [/quote]

WHY WE LOVE IT: The name George Pérez should say it all, but we are beyond excited to work with one of comics’ living masters on his own original title. He’s worked on great female characters like Wonder Woman and Scarlet Witch, but this, a team of female heroes of his own creation, had us swooning.
WHY YOU’LL LOVE IT: It’s a sci-fi adventure story that spans time and space, featuring a team of female heroes that kick butt across the universe. If you like strong female sci-fi characters like Battlestar Galactica’s Starbuck, Star Wars’ Princess Leia, and Alien’s Ripley, you’ll find a lot to love about GEORGE PÉREZ’S SIRENS!
WHAT IT’S ABOUT: As an intergalactic force enslaves planets across the galaxy, the legendary team known only as the Sirens must reunite to save the galaxy—but is that even possible when the Sirens themselves don’t even remember who they are? And the rest of the universe only remembers them as…villains? A six-issue miniseries featuring your new favorite comic book team, written and drawn by the master himself, George Pérez (Wonder Woman, JLA Vs. Avengers) begins his greatest story yet.[/quote]

Je suis un peu déçu par ce que je vois. Y a un truc qui me dérange. ça claque pas comme une page de Pérez. Le fait de s’encrer peut être ? La colo ?

Peut-être parce que ce sont des planches assez simples, avec peu de cases, beaucoup de gros plans, une composition très classique ?

Peut être. Mais y a aussi quelque chose dans le trait et la morpho.

En regardant de près les pages, je me dis que ça fait partie de la blague. L’arrivée de l’héroïne dans un autre monde est créditée à un certain “Chan Everest”, listé comme “Sirens #130”, publié par BAM! Comics, tout ça tout ça… Donc je me dis que Pérez s’amuse avec son style et sa narration. Et pour tout dire, les pages d’avant font preuve d’une recherche dans l’effet de style, pas les suivantes. Donc il y a une dimension volontaire aux changements.


Ah bah oui, tu dois avoir raison, ça fait clairement écho à ce qu’il a dit dans son interview pour Comic Box. ça se trouve, ce n’est pas Pérez au dessin !

Je me suis posé la question, mais je me dis que c’est lui quand même. Sauf qu’il simplifie le trait, mais aussi la composition (pas de case qui en chevauche d’autres, pas de petite case…). Pour coller avec les couleurs à trame, tout ça.

What It Is: Perfect for fans who want to look “behind the scenes” of making comics, the Pen & Ink series features artwork from highly skilled illustrators stripped down to their inks in the original artboard dimensions of 11” x 17”—or, in this case, and for the first time in a Pen & Ink book, stripped down to the pencils alongside inked and lettered pages.

Suite à ses nombreux ennuis de santé, George Perez a officialisé son retrait du monde des comics.

DATE : JANUARY 19, 2019
FROM : George Pérez

To all my loyal and kind fans who have supported me throughout the decades,

In recent months, there has been a great deal of speculation as to the future of my career, my health, my ability to draw and my future convention appearances. As a result, I would like to clear up everything first hand so that, hopefully, any rumors, speculation and misinformation can be laid to rest.

With respect to future published work in comics and such … while I know it’s been no secret that I’ve been dealing with a myriad number of health issues (diabetes, heart ailments, vision issues, etc.), they have indeed have forced me to, for all intents and purposes, formally retire from the business of creating new comic stories.

As for home commission requests, I’m afraid that my retirement must now extend to privately commissioned drawings as well. While I am gratified that all of the customers who have received their pieces were more than pleased with the results, some even consequently commissioning more of them, it’s just becoming too much of a strain on my eyes to produce the fully rendered ink and pencil-tone pieces on a quality level that justifies the price I’m being paid for them.

In regards to convention sketches, I will need to cut back on those as well. While I will no longer sketch at the conventions themselves, I will, through my art agent Spencer Beck of The Artists Choice, be taking orders for 5 ( FIVE ) con-style head sketches, per convention day that I am in attendance which will be done at home to be collected at the conventions. Fans placing orders must be personally present to pick up the piece , NO PROXIES. The price for these will be a good deal pricier than in the past, going for $100 each, but please take some solace that all the monies I earn for these sketches, as well as my appearance fees, will be donated to various charities. To place an order, or for initial details, please contact Spencer / The Artist’s Choice directly at Any changes or further announcements will be made by Spencer and myself on his website and on my fan website

Furthermore, for those that are interested … although I will only be attending about six conventions this year and one make up convention in 2020 ( *** see below for complete schedule ) 2019 will more than likely be my last year touring this great land meeting so many great fans. As the next decade begins, I have two shows, Dragon Con and Fetish Con that have personal meaning to me which I intend to attend yearly unless circumstances prevent it … but, for all intents, 2019 will wind down that part of my career as well. The good news is, even though I will not be sketching at the shows, I will still be autographing and be available for photo ops, and, as has been my policy throughout my career, I will not be charging for either.

In closing, please don’t feel sorry for me about all these life and career changes. Thankfully I earn more than enough income through royalties to have a comfortable life wherein I may never need to work again. Unless, of course, something really tempting comes along and I’m given sufficient lead time. Hey, you never know.

Long story short, I will be just fine. I’ve had a wonderfully good run doing exactly what I have wanted to do since I was a child. Now I can sit back and watch the stuff I helped create entertain whole new generations. That’s a pretty nice legacy to look back on.

And so much of that is thanks to all of you, the GREATEST fans in the world. I am humbled and forever grateful.

Wishing you all a safe, happy and healthy 2019 and beyond,

Ah bah merde, partir à cause de la santé, ce n’est jamais bon.
Il a quoi exactement ? (c’est peut être indiqué, mais je ne le détecte évidemment pas :yum:)

Effectivement c’est indiqué :wink:

Un grand nombre de problèmes de santé (Diabète, problèmes cardiaques, problèmes de vue…)

Grande tristesse de lire ça en tout cas. Cela éloigne mon rêve de le croiser un jour, à moins d’une convention en France ce dont je doute au plus haut point.:cry:
