THE BLACK MONDAY MURDERS #1-8 (Jonathan Hickman / Tomm Coker)

“C’est probablement le meilleur truc que j’ai écris en trois ans.”

Il annonçait vouloir se consacrer plus sérieusement à ses projets indépendants, c’est donc sans surprise que le scénariste Jonathan Hickman lève le voile sur sa nouvelle série chez Image Comics : The Black Monday Murders.

Inspiré par les évènements du lundi noir de 1987, The Black Monday Murders est l’histoire sur la magie qu’Hickman a toujours voulu raconter, à ceci près qu’il n’y a pas de magie :

Hickman travaillera pour l’occasion avec le très discret Tomm Cocker.

Aucune date de sortie n’a été annoncée pour l’instant.

All hail god money! From Jonathan Hickman (EAST OF WEST, Secret Wars, Avengers) and Tomm Coker (Undying Love) comes a mythical reinterpretation of modern global economics.

THE BLACK MONDAY MURDERS is classic occult indoctrination where the secret schools of magic are actually clandestine banking cartels who control all of society—a hidden world where vampire Russian oligarchs, Black Popes, enchanted American aristocrats, and hitmen from the International Monetary Fund work together to keep ALL OF US in our rightful place.

Each issue contains world-expanding bonus content like maps, corporate organization charts, decoded apocrypha, and stock tips to die for.

THE BLACK MONDAY MURDERS is a brand new, crypto-noir series about dirty, filthy, money… and what kind of people you can buy with it. Set to launch in Fall 2016.[/quote]

Discret je veux bien le croire, mais là j’ajouterai aussi talentueux. Très très belles pages.

Après John Watkins, voilà Tomm Cocker. Décidément, cette nouvelle fournée Image déterre les talents oubliés. Cocker, c’est la grande classe, j’adore.

Suite aux problèmes de santé du dessinateur Tomm Coker, la série Black Monday Murders est officiellement en pause pour une durée indéterminée.

I’ve been putting this off for a couple weeks—hoping to pull a miracle out of my hat, but there’s no getting around it…

Due to ongoing health concerns, Jonathan and I will have to postpone the 3rd arch of The Black Monday Murders. This is only temporary and not a cancellation.

I am not wasting away or dying—at least not any quicker than all of you. Simply put, I am unable at this time to finish pages to the level TBMM deserves. And if I don’t take the time to get better now the situation will only drag out and get worse.

In an effort to prevent myself from ignoring the situation, or burying my head in the sand I’ve been trying to make my condition public with friends and social media, so feel free to ask questions and I’ll do my best to answer.

Trust me when I say this is absolutely heartbreaking for me and if any other option was available it would’ve been taken. Thank you for your patience and understanding. In the meantime, here’s an upcoming cover, my favorite of the bunch.
