THE MARVELS #1-4 (Kurt Busiek / Yildiray Cinar)

y’a un rapport entre cette série et Marvel’s Snapshots ?

Non. Comme le titre l’indique, les one-shots Snapshots proposeront des instantanés sur des périodes en particulier. Kurt Busiek supervise l’ensemble, comme un « showrunner » de série TV.

Il en parlait en 2011 sur son site :

« And on top of that, I got sick—a resurgence of the detox-related fatigue problems that stem from my bout with mercury poisoning, and the assorted side effects that come with it. »


Kurt Busiek :

« That one’s been delayed a little, as Marvel wants to get everything back on firmer footing before launching a brand-new and fairly ambitious series. It’s a big, sprawling book with connections all throughout Marvel history, so it’s fun to do and a lot of work, and we really want to have it launch the best it can. »

Bonne nouvelle que le projet perdure.

The Marvels #1 sortira en avril.

Et plus précisément le 28 avril.

« The Marvels #1 will kick off a fascinating new saga set in the spectacular 616 that spans decades and will range from grand adventure to intense human drama, from street-level to cosmic, and star everyone from Marvel’s very first heroes to the superstars of tomorrow. This sprawling story will play with the grand tapestry that is Marvel Comics in an exhilarating new way by diving headfirst into Marvel history to tying together unsolved mysteries, make brand-new connections between characters, and reintroduce long-dormant threats. Along the way, readers will be introduced to exciting new heroes and villains like Threadneedle, Warbird, and Kevin Schumer, and be reacquainted with new takes on classic characters such as Lady Lotus. »

“We introduce three new characters in The Marvel #1 – one who’s very much on a human level, one wrapped up with superhero history and ties beyond Earth, and one who’s outright weird and cosmic and will usher us into a bigger, stranger, deeper world," Busiek said. « Threadneedle is that third guy, as I expect you can tell. And yeah, Alex did an astounding design of Threadneedle, didn’t he? Quirky and trippy, and nothing like anyone else Marvel’s had in stories before. And that’s all very intentional. Make sure to keep an eye on him. He’s got fascinating secrets. »





C’était donc ça (le puzzle prend forme peu à peu).


A tease of what is to come [History of the Marvel Universe #6]

The Age of Khonshu = Avengers
The Interstellar reign of the half-breed = Empyre
The rise of the Outlaw Generation = Outlawed
The King in Black = The King in Black
The wedding of Tony Stark and Emma Frost = ?
The tragic fate of Luke Cage and Jessica Jones second child = ?
The Defenders of tomorrow = le titre Defenders de cet été ?
Threadneedle & Warbird = Marvels
The fate of Mephisto = Avengers et/ou Amazing Spider-Man ?

Bouh, ça commence bien.
Kurt Busiek fait plaisir en utilisant une triple narration (passé, futur, présent), en s’amusant avec plusieurs aspects et personnages Marvel. Je ne veux pas trop en dire, mais tout est fin, fluide, dynamique et intelligent. Et tellement agréable.
Yildiray Cinar livre aussi une très belle prestation, avec un trait rond qui correspond bien aux thèmes et à l’optique.

Je ne sais pas si ça va durer, mais ça commence très bien et ça a un goût du bon vieux temps. Vivement la suite.

There’s an aftermath in Manhattan, after the explosion in our first issue - and a crisis in the nation of Siancong as things go from bad to worse. And amid all that, meet Kevin Schumer, an ordinary guy with some big secrets…and see more of the mysterious Threadneedle and the role he’ll play in our building epic. Marvel’s most wide-ranging thriller continues, and you’ll never guess where we go next.

La bonne impression continue.
Kurt Busiek continue d’utiliser beaucoup de personnages autour du pays fictif Siancong, ainsi que des communautés liées par le monde. C’est malin, et c’est très fluide à la lecture car on sent plusieurs niveaux d’intrigues. On a aussi la présentation de Kevin Schumer, qui s’avère être neveu du Tinkerer ce qui est une bien bonne idée pour lancer ce perso’ débrouillard et bricoleur sur les artefacts de super-héros. On voit plus aussi de l’étonnante entité cosmique Threadneedle, et on voit encore plus de personnages sympathiques.
Yildiray Cinar livre de jolies planches, un peu sages mais réussies. Le style est classique et fonctionne bien. Ca se rapproche d’un Andrea Di Vito, ce que j’aime beaucoup.

Vivement la suite de ce récit classique dans le très bon sens du terme.
