THE ARMS OF THE OCTOPUS (Mike Costa / Collectif)

Depuis quelques années, l’éditeur Marvel Comics profite de ses numéros spéciaux ou “Annual” pour confier de courtes sagas à des auteurs indépendants. Après Identity Wars[size=85]*[/size] de John Layman et Escape from the Negative Zone[size=85]**[/size] de James Asmus, c’est le scénariste Mike Costa (G.I. Joe, IDW Publishing) qui se chargera de la saga The Arms of the Octopus partagée entre All-New X-Men Special #1, Indestructible Hulk Special #1 et Superior Spider-Man Team-Up #1.

Le Docteur Octopus est de retour d’entre les morts pour menacer la vie des jeunes X-Men et de l’Indestructibe Hulk. Du moins le croient-ils. Car avant de succomber à ses blessures, le véritable Octopus a pris possession du corps de Peter Parker. Le Superior Spider-Man enquête sur cette apparition schizophrénique.
Les dessinateur Kris Anka, Jake Wiatt et Michael Dialynas se chargent respectivement de la partie graphique des trois numéros. Couvertures de Alexander Lozano.

Sortie de l’intégralité de la saga en octobre.

[quote=“Mike Costa”]Yeah, that’s the central mystery, the engine of the story. How is Doctor Octopus back? And this is the Doc Ock of a very specific era, the one who wore the green leotard, not the more recent version of the character. This Dock Ock appears to be clearly from the past, so how did he get here? And what does this mean?

It’s also a really great way to bring the characters together, because the All-New X-Men are time travelers and the Superior Spider-Man is Doctor Octopus. Each of them have a stake in figuring out how it is that Doctor Octopus is here, right now. Did he come from the past? Is it something else? That’s what they’ve got to figure out.[/quote]
