Merci Doc

Ah pas mal. C’est pas la prestation la plus géniale de la série, mais c’est très joliment gratté, et je serai ravi de l’avoir sous forme de TPB, et pas en fascicule. Hop, je le mets dans un coin de ma tête.

Pas mal. J’ai pas vu passer le premier, je ne sais pas ce qu’il y a dedans (sans doute les deux premières mini, qu’on a déjà tous). Mais ça, c’est bien sympa. Reste plus qu’une série de TPB reprenant la série mensuelle, et je serai content.

Je l’ai déjà dit, mais cette série, bâtie sur un coup d’éclat un peu gratuit et la mise à la porte de Gerard Jones qui faisait pourtant du bon boulot, a donné naissance, contre toute attente, à une excellente période, où Marz gérait très bien l’arrivée d’un bleu dans l’univers DC et son rôle dans l’échiquier cosmique. Cette série de TPB est bienvenue.

Retour de Marv Wolfman pour une saga qui emporte le flingueur partout dans le monde, y compris en Europe (avec Jean-Marc Lofficier qui participe à l’écriture). Plutôt sympa.

Ah tiens : je crois que j’ai lu ça en fascicules, mais j’en ai un souvenir flou. Hop, ça sera pour moi : Moench, Dixon, Jones, Nolan, ça me va très bien.

Ah, de la SF à papa. Bien cool. Et Infantino en pleine forme.
