THE ADVENTURES OF APOCALYPSE AL #1-4 (Stracz / Kotian)

Le nouveau projet du scénariste J. M. Straczynski labellisé Joe’s Comics (Ten Grand, Potectors Inc., Sidekick) s’intitule “The Adventures of Apocalypse Al”. Cette nouvelle mini-série illustrée par Sid Kotian (déjà collaborateur de stracz sur la série Dream Police) raconte la quête de Allison Carter qui tente de mettre fin à l’apocalypse. Son voyage la mènera sur le chemin de flics zombis, de dimensions parallèles, d’un parc-à-thème maléfique, de techno-magiciens et d’un ex-petit copain mort-vivant.

A l’origine, “The Adventures of Apocalypse Al” est une commande de la chaine MTV à destination d’une web-série. Elle aurait dû être suivie plus tard d’une publication en “roman graphique”. Aucune déclaration n’a été faite quant au changement de programme, ni si le projet MTV est encore d’actualité.

Sortie du premier numéro en février.
