SURVIVORS CLUB #1-9 (Beukes, Halvorsen / Ryan Kelly)

L’éditeur Vertigo, le label “mature” de DC Comics qui apporta sur la scène comics de nombreux titres populaires comme Sandman, Shade The Changing Man, **Doom Patrol **et Hellblazer au début des années 90, puis **Fables **ou encore 100 Bullets dans les années 2000, a annoncé la publication de pas moins de 12 nouveaux titres entre octobre et décembre.

Parmi eux se trouve la série Survivors Club imaginée par l’auteure Lauren Beukes, co-écrite par Dale Halvorsen et illustrée par Ryan Kelly. Inspirée du genre Slasher, la série raconte le rassemblement d’inconnus ayant survécu à des évènements particulièrement violent en 1987. Ils sont tous convoqués par Chenzira, “l’Indiana Jones du Jeu Vidéo”, pour comprendre ce qu’ils ont en commun.

[quote=“Beukes”]Chenzira’s united them. She’s discovered that they all had something bad happen to them in 1987, that they’ve all been drawn to Los Angeles, and that there were others, but they’re dead now.

They’re the only survivors. They all have their own mysteries they want to solve.[/quote]

One was possessed by a poltergeist. Another was trapped in a haunted house. A third had a killer doll. Ever wonder what happened to these children of the 1980s? Find out in SURVIVORS CLUB, a new series cowritten by renowned horror novelist Lauren Beukes and videogame journalist Dave Halverson, with art by Ryan Kelly (NORTHLANDERS).
Having found each other over the internet, six grown-up survivors are drawn together by the horrors they experienced in 1987 when a rash of occult events occurred around the world—with fatal results. Now, there are indications that it may be happening all over again. Is it possible that these six aren’t just survivors—but were chosen for their fates?[/quote]

Ryan Kelly est en forme. S’il tient ce niveau sur la longueur, et si le scénario est à la hauteur, ça va me faire envie.

Ouaip ! C’est vraiment pas mal du tout de ce côté-là.

Conquis par le travail de romancière de Lauren Beukes [Pour en savoir +], et la très bonne impression que m’a laissé son premier roman Moxyland, j’ai continué avec Survivors’ Club.

Bien m’en a pris.

Cette série de neuf numéros [Pour en savoir +] synthétise ce que le Vertigo original pouvait offrir de mieux en matière de récit d’horreur. Et sa prochaine adaptation en série télévisée, pourrait bien nous l’amener sous nos latitudes, en VF (?). C’est tout le mal que je lui souhaite.
