SUICIDERS #1-6 (Lee Bermejo)

Le championnat de combat ultime [UFC] dans la Salle des Dangers des X-Men

En 2015, l’éditeur DC Comics publiera, via son label Vertigo, la première série régulière intégralement conçue par l’artiste Lee Bermejo (Joker, Batman: Noël).

Comparé à des films comme Mad Max et Escape From New York, Suiciders raconte l’histoire de deux villes fondées après un cataclysme naturel, New Angeles et** Lost Angeles**, et du jeu de gladiateur qui s’y déroule.

Ci-dessous, trois pages du premier numéro:

[quote] In the post-apocalyptic city of New Angeles, killing isn’t just a crime – it’s entertainment.

When the “big one” finally hit the West Coast, Los Angeles was left in ruins. And when the U.S. government decided to cut the city loose, things went from bad to worse. To survive, L.A. did what it does best: It turned survival into entertainment.

Now, thirty years later, the city of New Angeles is thriving once more thanks to the blood sport known as SUICIDERS – a TV series that combines the spectacle of hand-to-hand combat with elaborate, high-tech obstacles that test each competitor’s ability to survive. But these competitors have an edge: They’ve been freakishly enhanced by drugs and technology. The results are both marvelous and monstrous, as the man called The Saint begins to rise above his fellow Suiciders.

SUICIDERS is a dark, post-apocalyptic epic that tells the story of a strange, brutal world, written and illustrated by Lee Bermejo, the #1 New York Times best-selling writer/artist behind JOKER, BATMAN: NOEL, LUTHOR and BEFORE WATCHMEN: RORSCHACH.[/quote]

[quote]The Saint is the best of the best. He’s basically the Michael Jordan of this sport. He is a character that comes into the story already at the top of his game. And he very much has everything at his fingertips but things very quickly start to crumble for him.

There is another character that is introduced in the second issue that is an immigrant that wants to be the best of the best. He wants to be The Saint. You end up with two sides of the same coin with these two characters. Through the course of the story, you get to see how much of your soul that you are willing to give up to get what you want – from people that already have it to people that have nothing. That’s where you get to see the character-driven elements of the story.

I feel like if I have done my job, by the time you read the last issue of the first arc, you will want to go back and re-read the whole thing as there are so many layers.[/quote]

J’ai lu le numéro 1 avec beaucoup de difficultés. C’est beau mais ça ne gratte pas grand-chose et ça m’embête mais surtout je m’embête. Je n’irai pas plus loin que deux-trois numéros pré-commandés que pour ce Gladiator morderne.
