Tiens c’est marrant de voir le Karmen de Guillem March sortir un an après qu’il soit sorti dans nos contrées.

Bien qu’il soit espagnol, j’aurais cru que vu son travail permanent avec les ricains il serait sorti d’abord chez eux.

C’est un éditeur basque ?

ouep

Il travaille aussi pas mal avec les Français… ~___^

Sinon, je le cite :

HEYHEYHEY! BIG NEWS! Image Comics will release KARMEN as a 5-issues mini starting on MARCH. After working on Karmen for six years, I can say I delivered my best work ever. I come back to writing duties because I know I´m a much better #storyteller when I´m doing the whole thing. If you know me from my #superhero work, I´m sure Karmen will surprise you. I can´t tell with words how proud I´m of this #book, and how it makes me happy it will finally be released for the US audience.

Kick Ass n’est elle pas une licence du catalogue creator owned de Marvel au départ ??

Ça appartient à Millar. Il peut donc développer des produits annexes ailleurs, et récupérer le truc quand Marvel a fini d’exploiter leur édition. Un peu sur le modèle de certains produits Bendis.
