Bilquis Evely c’est un très bon point ! Et vu que j’avais bien aimé le portrait de Superman par Tom King dans Up in the Sky je suis assez curieux !

Pourquoi pas.

Oh, je prends !

Oh, le coup de coeur. Tom King livre un récit fort, qui plonge Supergirl dans un monde extraterrestre d’Heroic-Fantasy, avec une narration via une jeune fille soudain orpheline et qui veut venger son père. Elle cherche quelqu’un pour tuer le meurtrier, tombe sur une Kara qui cherche à fuir dans ce monde sous soleil rouge son anniversaire… et rien ne se passe bien.
C’est surprenant, c’est fluide, c’est intense, c’est prenant, c’est choquant pour le final, et c’est illustré dans un style très adapté à ce récit par Bilquis Evely.

Coup de coeur, oui.

C’est un vrai coup de coeur graphique dans un premier temps. Le graphisme dégage une certaine personnalité qui met à mal les stéréotypes des dessins super-héros.

Ensuite sur l’histoire, je crois bien que l’on est bon pour un plaisir de lecture d’un trait et non en mensuel. Du Tom King, quoi…

Supergirl-Woman-of-Tomorrow-2-1

Little do they know, their journey will be a dark one filled with terrors that not even the Maid of Might is prepared to face! Can Kara Zor-El lie low long enough to ensure their safe passage?

The cold welcome the locals give the Woman of Steel makes her suspicious enough to go looking for secrets they want to keep buried, and what she finds is nothing short of horrifying. Can she and Ruthye get off the planet alive now that these deadly sins have been exposed?

Quel épisode magnifique!

Autant l’histoire est très linéaire, avec une Supergirl portant sur son dos Ruthye et parcourant les horizons (oh combien MAGNIFIQUES) avec des vrais moments de décourvertes (j’ai en tête la découverte macabre du numéro 3), autant cet épisode des origines est (oh combien) MAGNIFIQUE et touchant.

King doit remodeler un peu les origines de Supergirl (je connais très peu le personnage, je dois avouer) ou les approfondir. Il y développe sa famille de Krypton, un premier départ et un second très émouvant.

Encore, une fois, faudra tout relire pour apprécier pleinement cette histoire. Tom King reste Tom King.

Je vous passe le couplet sur les dessins oh combien MAGNIFIQUES de Bilquis Evely.

Une petite comète (comprendre PEPITE). ;).
