SWAMP THING #19-39 (Charles Soule / Jesus Saiz, Kano)

Le dénouement du crossover Rotworld est proche, et sa fin signifiera également le départ du scénariste Scott Snyder et du dessinateur Yannick Paquette de la série Swamp Thing au dix-huitième épisode.

C’est Charles Soule, reconnu pour ses comic books en creator-owned 27 et Strange Atractors, qui va reprendre l’écriture de la série à partir de l’épisode 19 et le dessinateur Kano, qu’on a surtout vu ces derniers temps chez les deux majors officier comme fill-in sur Daredevil et Swamp Thing, mettra en image les scripts de Charles Soule.

Voici la couverture de Swamp Thing #19 par Andy Brase qui sortira au mois d’avril:

"]In particular, one of the goals I’ve set for myself on the book is to expand Swamp Thing’s supporting cast a bit. After all, just because he lives way out in the swamp doesn’t mean he can’t have any pals besides Abby. For instance, I have a thousand-year old assassin character I plan to introduce pretty early. She’ll have a really cool dynamic with Swamp Thing, in part because she doesn’t realize that the various other avatars of the Green she’s encountered in her ten centuries weren’t all the same guy. They may have made certain promises to her that Alec is expected to honor - whether he wants to or not.

To sum up - familiar faces will pop into the swamp from time to time, but plenty of new surprises as well. …]

In addition to the goal of adding new supporting cast members that I mentioned above, I also want to (at least for the moment), focus on really tight stories of 1-3 issues, with each having its own distinct feel and central idea. I want readers to be able to cite each story down the road by that big idea or image - “you remember the one where Swamp Thing did THIS???” Stuff like that. Should be really fun.

Belle couverture, et je me disais que j’avais déjà vu ce “trait” quelque part ; il a fait la couverture d’une novella de G.R.R Martin, traduite récemment.

Un bon épisode très encourageant pour l’après Snyder et cette très belle fin amoureuse.

C’est typiquement le genre de numéro (le premier généralement) où l’on peut sentir que le scénariste a des choses à dire. je crois que l’on va voyager, en tout cas je l’espère.

Je suis aussi très content de revoir un dessin et une composition de planches plus classiques. Kano (pas celui de Mortal Kombat) rend une belle petite copie très solide.

Swamp Thing élégant? Pas loin, ouais. :wink:

[quote]This is the Whiskey Tree story, which covers issues #22 and 23. It’s set in the town of Fetters Hill, a fictional hamlet in the Scottish Highlands. The place is fairly depressed, without a lot going for it, until a huge tree grows up out of the village green in the center of town.

Swamp Thing and Constantine both arrive in town – for slightly different reasons – and then it goes even further south. Like, all the way down – I’m referring to Hell – and it gets ugly. It’s a great, creepy story in classic “Swamp Thing” style and I can’t wait for people to read it as well as the rest of the great things we have cooked up for you. Stay Green![/quote]


Un auteur à suivre pour ma part.

Je vais tenter. J’aime bien ce qu’il dit dans ses interviews.

Encore un bravo pour ces épisodes limpides et plaisants. Sans compter que l’on a droit à un Jesus Saiz au petits oignons (sa scène de flash-back représentant l’inquisition française est à tomber).

Ce Charles Soule est surprenant tant on dirait qu’il pilote Swampy depuis des lustres…

L’éditeur DC Comics annonce une nouvelle vague de six “Annual” pour la fin de l’année 2013 dont Swamp Thing Annual 2 par Charles Soule et Javi Pina:


On sale OCTOBER 30 • 48 pg, FC, $4.99 US • RATED T+
Tying directly into the current storyline with The Seeder—witness the next evolution of Swamp Thing! Alec’s going to need to take his powers to another level to take Seeder down…with help from the stranger coaches imaginable! Plus: an appearance from a Swamp Thing you never thought you’d see![/quote]

Ce Charle Soule a tout compris. Il tend à ajouter une touche vertigoesque retrouvée me ravit. De plus, ce charmeur de scénariste tisse une très intéressante toile sans que l’on sente une linéarité (trop) logique.

DC, donnez-lui Constantine!!!

Faut variment que je pense à me chopper le numéro qui me manque.

Dans le deuxième annual de la série Swamp Thing, le scénariste Charles Soule présentera le Burgher Thing (ne pas comprendre Burger King); un ex-avatar du vert envoyé par le parlement des Arbres pour entrainer la Créature de Marrais actuelle.

C’est Ronald McDonald déguisé pour Halloween ?

Merci, mec.

Ci-dessous, le design de Lady Weed par Kano:



[quote=“Charles Soule”]Lady Weeds’ origin stemmed from my thinking that not every Swamp Thing over the millennia would take the same “good guy” approach that Swamp Thing does. The Green doesn’t really care about people — the Green cares about plants. So, it was easy to come up with the idea that at some point, a Swamp Thing dove into the idea of protecting the plant kingdom headfirst, and did so at the expense of humanity.

Lady Weeds did something very, very bad during her term as the Avatar — which the Green celebrated — and you’ll learn what it was in the Annual.

Basically, Lady Weeds represents one possible future for Alec Holland if he can’t get a handle on himself. The Green is always pushing him, trying to get him to go farther than he wants to, and Lady Weeds will serve as something of a super-freaky cautionary tale.[/quote]
