THE FALL AND RISE OF CAPTAIN ATOM (Weisman, Bates/Conrad)

Les scénaristes Cary Bates et Greg Weisman (producteur exécutif de la série Star Wars : Rebels) reforment leur duo pour s’occuper de la nouvelle série The Fall and Rise of Captain Atom #1 à la demande de DC Comics.

Pour la petite histoire, les deux auteurs collaborèrent ensemble dans les années 80 pour relancer le célèbre héros atomique de Charlton (héros qui servit de modèles au Docteur Manhattan de Watchmen).

Ils travailleront cette fois-ci avec le dessinateur Will Conrad (Angel & Faith) pour expliquer ce qui est arrivé au Captain depuis sa dernière apparition.

Le premier numéro sort le 4 janvier 2017 aux États-Unis.

Petite anecdote amusante, alors qu’il travaillait comme Editor chez DC Comics, Greg Weisman a “prêté” son emprunte digitale à Rorschach :

Un destin à la Dr Manhattan ?

Ca serait pas la première fois que le persos est plus ou moins lancé dans cette direction. J’espère que ça sera bien. Le perso m’a souvent intrigué et donné envie de lire.

Un adversaire du Dr. Manhattan (parce que post-Rebirth, toussa, tousse !) ?

Haha, si on pouvait éviter une reprise de l’idée d’en faire Monarch, ça serait déjà bien.

Ca a finalement été fait dans Countdown to Final Crisis, je pense quand même pas qu’ils vont encore nous le remettre. Surtout vu le retour critique sur cette mini-série.

A mon envie, tout le monde préfère oublier*.

[size=85]*Même si moi j’avais trouvé la lecture pas si désagréable à vrai dire, mais je le dis pas trop fort, on se moque souvent de moi sinon…[/size]

Sinon, on l’explose et on en profite pour relance Wildstorm. Attends…
