STORMS AT SEA (Mark Schultz)

Près de 10 ans après avoir été annoncé, le roman illustré de science-fiction Storms at Sea de l’artiste Mark Schultz sortira finalement en août chez Flesk.

Suite à la mort du scientifique à l’origine d’une nouvelle source d’énergie illimitée, sa nièce et son garde du corps, Griff, se retrouvent à enquêter à l’aide d’un manuscrit qui pourrait contenir toutes les réponses ou bien les mener dans les profondeurs démentes du terrier dans lequel se faufile le lapin blanc.

Maintenant qu’il a finalisé les 30 pages de ce projet, Schultz déclare vouloir se consacrer à de nouvelles aventures des rescapés de la série Les Chroniques de l’ère Xenozoïque qui fut publiée en pointillé entre 1987 et 1996.

[quote]Well, it’s exciting to be done with it, but also nerve-wracking, considering that I’ve been promising it for close to ten years: What will people expect out of a ten-year-long project?

There’s no one answer for why it’s taken so long, and, unfortunately, none of them are exciting. Mostly, it took so long because this was a personal project for which I pulled no upfront income. I worked on it as time permitted, in between the work that paid the monthly bills. Also, I sort of hoped that working in carbon pencil – instead of my usual brush and ink – would somehow speed up my process. Right. As it turned out, my unfamiliarity with carbon pencil probably slowed things down. And then there’s the unfortunate fact that as both the story, and my understanding of the medium, evolved, I wound up redoing a good chunk of the illustrations. And, suddenly – ten years. I am extremely lucky that I have publisher who is very patient and understanding.

The initial idea was that I could complete an illustrated novella faster than I could a graphic novel. Live and learn.[/quote]
