SWORDS OF SORROW #1-6 (Gail Simone / Sergio Davila)

Gail Simone délaisse la série Red Sonja pour mieux se consacrer au crossover Swords of Sorrow, une “aventure ‘pulp’ au féminin”, qu’elle chapeautera pour l’éditeur Dynamite Entertainment avec l’aide de quelques unes de ses amies scénaristes.
Pour sauver leurs époques respectives, les plus grandes héroïnes de l’univers Dynamite - Red Sonja, Vampirella, Dejah Thoris, Kato, Jungle Girl, Lady Rawhide, et Jennifer Blood - doivent apprendre à travailler ensemble pour disposer des épées de la Géhenne.

En supplément de la mini-série principale illustrée par Sergio Davila, l’éditeur publiera divers tie-ins se concentrant sur la rencontre entre deux des têtes d’affiches: Swords of Sorrow: Masquerade / Kato par les scénaristes G. Willow Wilson (Ms. Marvel) et Erica Schultz et le dessinateur Noah Salonga; Swords of Sorrow: Chaos scénarisé par Mairghread Scott (Transformers: Winblade) et illustré par Mirka Andolfo; et la mini-série Swords of Sorrow: Vampirella/Jennifer Blood écrite par Nancy A. Collins (Vampirella) et illustrée par Dave Acosta.
D’autres auteurs comme Leah Moore, Marguerite Bennett, Emma Beeby, et Mikki Kendall devraient aussi participer à l’évènement dans les mois qui suivent.

Swords of Sorrow #1 sortira en mai avec pas moins de 9 couvertures illustrées par J. Scott Campbell, Tula Lotay, Jenny Frison, Emanuela Lupacchino, Robert Hack, Joyce Chin, Tula Lotay, Nei Ruffino, et Cedric Poulat.

[quote]The core concept for this crossover that was in my head was a simple question: What if the pulp eras had always been as inclusive of women creators and characters as the comics industry is currently becoming? I found this hypothetical tremendously exciting. Imagine if, alongside the Shadow and the Spider, we had had masked women crimefighters who were just as popular, with a wider audience and more female creators? Imagine if comics had always known there was a female audience out there that loved adventure stories. I mean, there were decades where that was just not the case.

So I looked out at all the newest female writers out there, those specializing in adventure stories, real two-fisted pulp stuff. I just cherry-picked the best of them, and asked. They all said yes, thank god – they jumped right on board![/quote]

It’s Martians versus Monsters versus Barbarians and more, with the women of Chaos on the wrong side of Good Vs. Evil…plus, where are Red Sonja, Vampirella and Dejah Thoris in their worlds’ time of need? Guest stars galore in this massive tale of battle, blades and bikinis![/quote]

L’idée d’une aventure *pulp * me laisse toujours dubitatif compte tenu de la diversité et de la durée de vie des pulp magazines (ça débute officiellement en 1896 et ça se termine au cours des années 50) en extraire un esprit homogène me semble plutôt utopique.

Ceci dit ça donne peut-être une idée assez vague pour rassembler beaucoup de monde derrière. :wink:

C’est très intéressant cette idée de féminiser les créateurs et les personnages (pour toucher une audience tout aussi féminine), mais qu’est-ce qu’on nous propose ?
Des *gisquettes * assez dévêtues, des capacités pulmonaires extraordinaires, des fessiers callipyges, des poses suggestives sur les couvertures, bref rien qui n’avait déjà été fait par des scénaristes mâles pour des adulescents prépubères. :slight_smile:

Reste l’histoire que je n’ai pas lue, il y a peut-être du nouveau de ce côté-là. :wink:

Sinon, un petit article sur les pulp magazines et plus particulièrement Lobster Jhonson.
