Après Unknown Soldier, le duo Jimmy Palmiotti/Justin Gray (All-Star Western) tenteront une résurrection des “comics de guerre” en relançant le célèbre titre Star-Spangled War Stories. L’histoire se concentrera sur le G.I. Zombie a.k.a. Jared Kabe, un soldat mort-vivant qui apprécie le temps qu’il passe sur Terre. Les deux scénaristes retrouveront, pour l’occasion, le dessinateur Scott Hampton avec lequel ils avaient travaillé sur la série Black Widow.
Star-Spangled War Stories #1 sortira en juillet 2014.
[quote=“Jimmy Palmiotti”] The supporting cast includes his partner Carmen King, who is a vet that’s having trouble adjusting to being back home after three tours of duty. Carmen is working alongside Jared and getting to know him as the story goes on. They work together undercover and are stationed stateside, dealing with domestic terror.
The other supporting character is a long time fiend of Jared’s named Able Anderson AKA Gravedigger. Yes, that’s right. We introduce a new Gravedigger into the New 52 and he is featured in the second issue. Jared and Able have history together and they are fun to be around when in the heat of the battle.
As far as the villain, we have a lot of bad guys lined up and will talk about them soon. Since we are playing in the DCU we will be experimenting a bit with what we can get away with.[/quote]
