THE BOUNCE #1-12 (Joe Casey / David Messina)

Pour palier à la conclusion prématurée de Butcher Baker, The Righteous Maker et la fin de Haunt, l’éditeur Image Comics lance deux nouvelles séries du scénariste Joe Casey.

Si Sex s’interroge sur la maturation d’un Super-Héros trentenaire, la série The Bounce revient aux origines du genre: Jasper Jenkins, 20 ans, est tiraillé entre sa vie d’étudiant, ses amis, la fille qu’il aime et ses nouveaux Superpouvoirs qu’il doit cacher a son frère policier.
Pour l’aider dans son entreprise Joe Casey a fait appel au dessinateur italien bien connu des lecteurs d’IDW Publishing et ancien mentor de Sara Pichelli: David Messina.

Sortie du premier numéro en mai 2013.

L’origine du personnage n’était pas franchement original mais je me demande où est l’analogie avec Amazing Spider-Man annoncée par Casey.

[quote]Serialization is often a necessary evil in today’s marketplace, but obviously I’m not opposed to it. Oftentimes, I really like it. And, besides, most of the classics were originally serialized, from Watchmen to Dark Knight Returns and so on.

But I’m glad that the “final” form is the complete book. Ultimately, that’s really how it’s meant to be read. In terms of marketing the initial series’ release, I ended up reverting to my usual “performance art” mode and leaned into the whole “Spider-Man”-aspect of the Bounce character. For one thing, it was an easily digestible marketing hook and, as it turned out, worked quite well in launching the book.

But secondly, I was trying to prime the readers — those that pay attention to these things — for one experience and then, in the narrative itself, delivering another. Kind of a bait-and-switch, I’ll admit… but at least it’s not your typical reading experience. There’s no other superhero comic book out there like it right now.[/quote]
