THE AUTEUR #1-5 (Rick Spears / James Callahan)

Le producteur Nathan T. Rex est responsable du plus gros flop de Hollywood avec son dernier film. Pour se rattraper, il décide de ressusciter la franchise horrifique “Presidents Day” en embauchant un tueur en série comme consultant. Qu’est-ce qui pourrait mal tourner ?

C’est le point de départ de la série The Auteur, du scénariste Rick Spears et du dessinateur James Callahan, que publiera l’éditeur Oni Press à partir de mars.
Ci-dessous, la couverture des quatre premiers numéros (dont une variante réalisée par Eric Powell) et quelques images du premier numéro:

[quote=“James Callahan”]Umm – mostly we’re holding up a mirror to society, I think? I’m not sure. This thing started as a homage to “Marmaduke” with the working title “Gaffydap.” George Lopez was attached to a film adaptation. But then Rick kept changing it over and over. Once he wrote the wacky dog out of the story, we couldn’t justify a sassy parrot anymore. Needless to say, Mr. Lopez’s representation is pretty displeased at the moment. But this is a different book now, and that’s definitely different.

I’m just hoping someone will pick up the film rights, so it can be their problem. Asset. It can be their asset.[/quote]
