SPARKS NEVADA, MARSHAL ON MARS #0-2 (Acker & Blacker / Bone)

Se préparant pour le New York Comic Con de la semaine prochaine, l’éditeur Image Comics commence a présenter quelques uns des comics qui feront l’évènement.

C’est le cas par exemple des deux nouvelles séries des “podcasters” Ben Acker et Ben Blacker (Thunderbolts): Sparks Nevada: Marshal on Mars, illustrée par J. Bone et racontant les exploits d’un maréchal de la planète Mars semant la peur chez les robots et extra-terrestres criminels; et Beyond Belief sur le quotidien d’un couple de mondains, Frank et Sadie Doyle, capables de voir les fantômes qui hantent la haute société. Cette dernière sera illustrée par Phil Hester.

Les deux titres seront labellisés “The Thrilling Adventure Hour Presents” du nom de la troupe de théâtre des deux auteur qui débuta d’ailleurs par une lecture de “Sparks Nevada, Marshal on Mars” à destination d’un dessin animé produit par la chaine Nickelodeon (mais qui ne verra jamais le jour).

Ben Acker and Ben Blacker take Image Comics by storm with two all-new series inspired by the hit Nerdist podcast Thrilling Adventure Hour. Titled THE THRILLING ADVENTURE HOUR PRESENTS… SPARKS NEVADA: MARSHAL ON MARS and THE THRILLING ADVENTURE HOUR PRESENTS… BEYOND BELIEF, the two series are coming to Image Comics this February.

For SPARKS NEVADA: MARSHAL ON MARS #1 you’ll want to shine your astro spurs and don your robot fists! Justice rides a rocket steed across the crimson plains of the fourth planet, where one man brings fear to robots and aliens… and hope to humans who make this frontier planet their home. He is… SPARKS NEVADA: MARSHAL ON MARS by Acker & Blacker, J. Bone, Jordie Bellaire, and Marshall Dillon.

In BEYOND BELIEF #1, by Acker & Blacker, Phil Hester, John Rauch, and Marshall Dillon, it’s time to send the little ones to dream land and set your radio’s dial to “spooky.” Steel yourself for mysterious suspense in… BEYOND BELIEF! Meet Frank and Sadie Doyle, toast of the upper crust! Headliners on the society pages. And, oh yes… they see ghosts! Who cares what evil lurks in the hearts of men… unless evil’s carrying the martini tray!

“We are tremendous fans of Image, both the caliber and quality of books they put out,” said Acker and Blacker. “We couldn’t be more (ahem) thrilled to be producing books with Image, the home of so many of our favorite comics and creators. We’re excited for the Thrilling Adventure Hour to be a part of the Image family, for that big ‘I’ is a seal of quality.”

Both series will launch from Image Comics in February, and the Image Comics booth (#1544) will host a special group signing for the crew—Ben Acker, Ben Blacker, Hal Lublin, Craig Cackowski and Autumn Reeser—on Friday from 12:30-1:30 p.m. Thrilling Adventure Hour will be at booth #888 at NYCC for additional signings and exclusive merchandise.
