[quote=« Jim Starlin »]It’s like visiting old friends. I had a certain amount of trepidation coming back and working here just because I hadn’t done this sort of work in a while and they started me off with a 100-page story. Marvel doesn’t believe in half measures. [Laughs]
It’s gone very well. Originally Mark Bagley was supposed to draw this story, but his schedule prevented him from doing so and something I was supposed to write couldn’t happen just yet. So I took on the penciling job as well. That was the part I was a little bit hesitant on. It worked out tremendously well though, and Andy Smith is doing a bang up job on the inking. Frank D’Armata is our colorist and his pages are just looking terrific.[/quote]
Quand je vois ses dessins ces dernières années, je me demande s’il a changé l’inclinaison de sa table à dessin ou s’il a un problème de vue.
Les contre-plongées sont toutes bizarres et son Surfer est raté pour moi.
L’artiste Jim Starlin à accordé une interview rétrospective sur le personnage de Adam Warlock au site Newsarama. Il y parle notamment de la création d’un l’univers « Galactique » à l’époque de ses études, du rapport entre Darkseid et Thanos, de Pip « Kirby » le Troll, et de l’influence qu’a eu l’afro-américaine Angela Davis sur le design de Magus.
Deuxième (et dernière) partie de l’interview rétrospective sur Jim Starlin. L’auteur revient sur la création de Gamora, le rapport entre Warlock et la série Le Prisonnier, sa rencontre fortuite avec Archie Goodwin, et le Warlock géant (!):
[quote=« Jim Starlin »]It wasn’t all planned…there was that plan for Warlock to kill himself as part of the storyline I had already done, the scene that repeated itself in Avengers Annual.
But most of the time, I don’t like planning out too far ahead. I like to be spontaneous, make decisions, and go, “Hey! That inspired me! I want to do more with that!” But when I started Warlock, I had no idea where it was going.[/quote]
