THE MOVEMENT #1-11 (Gail Simone / Freddie Williams II)

*“The previous generations of superheroes were not created to address this, it’s a legitimately new frontier, both for the real world and for storytellers.” *
- Gail Simone

Il n’aura pas fallut attendre longtemps entre l’annonce des annulations* de mai et l’arrivée des nouveaux titres de remplacement. En juin, l’éditeur DC Comics publiera deux nouvelles séries interconnectées: The Movement et The Green Team.

Si les deux séries partagent le thème majeur du pouvoir de l’argent, The Green Team s’intéresse uniquement a une minorité de gens n’ayant aucune restriction monétaire. Alors que The Movement, probablement très inspiré par le mouvement sociale “The Occupy”, se concentre sur une nouvelle ère de Héros protégeant la majorité contre les inégalités.

Lancée sur une idée originale de la scénariste Gail Simone, la série The Movement aura Freddie Williams II (Seven Soldiers: Mister Miracle, Captain Atome) comme dessinateur régulier.

We are faceless. We are limitless. We see all. And we do not forgive.
Who defends the powerless against the GREEDY and the CORRUPT? Who protects the homeless and poverty-stricken from those who would PREY upon them in the DARK OF NIGHT?
When those who are sworn to protect us abuse their power, when toxic government calls down super-human lackeys to force order upon the populace…finally, there is a force, a citizen’s army, to push order BACK. Let those who abuse the system know this as well: We have our OWN super humans now. They are not afraid of your badges or Leagues. And they will not be SILENCED.
We are your neighbors. We are your co-workers. And we are your children.[/quote]

[quote=“Gail Simone”]The Movement is an idea I’ve had for some time. It’s a book about power–who owns it, who uses it, who suffers from its abuse. As we increasingly move to an age where information is currency, you get these situations where a single viral video can cost a previously unassailable corporation billions, or can upset the power balance of entire governments.

The thing I find fascinating and a little bit worrisome is, what happens when a hacktivist group whose politics you find completely repulsive has this same kind of power and influence…what if a racist or homophobic group rises up and organizes in the same manner?

It makes you wonder where the next battlefield will be.[/quote]

[size=150]INTERVIEW DE LA SCÉNARISTE GAIL SIMONE[/size]

Je donne cinq mois de survie avant une nouvelle vague d’annulation.

Ouais. Mais c’est la première fois depuis un bail que DC tente un brin d’originalité dans sa production avec un semblant de qualité. Même si ça marche sur les plates-bandes du Archer & Amstrong de Valiant, je me laisse tenter.

The Green Team c’est une reprise de la série de Joe Simon?

Probablement. Tu as son sujet ici avec une interview de l’équipe créative.

[size=85]J’aimai déjà bien sur Captain Atom, mais c’est de mieux en mieux Freddie Williams III. [/size]

Lu et j’ai bien aimé. Les dessins me font parfois un peu penser à ceux de Tom Mandrake. Le scénar est pas mal, à suivre en ce qui me concerne.

J’ai aussi pris le #1 par curiosité. le TPB sera mien si l’intérêt se confirme (je ne suis pas très fan de Simone) car, en effet, c’est curieux.

Il est devenu très bon Freddie Williams. C’est un dessinateur accompli qui rend des planches claires.
Le plaisir avec ces nouvelles séries, c’est qu’on ne peut pas anticiper sur l’intrigue. C’est frais et surprenant. Contrairement aux héros septuagénaires qui révisent leurs aventures tout les huit mois.

Ça commence bien Prolétarity.

J’ai aussi lu ce premier numéro et c’est vrai que le dessin arrache bien, vachement dynamique.

Je n’ai absolument pas suivi cette série, mais je note deux choses :

  • c’est Atlas qui apparaît dans le groupe ? Donc c’est connecté à l’univers DC ?
  • c’est Freddie Williams II qui dessine ? Fichtre, son style a évolué : un encrage plus riche, plus matiéré, des personnages plus agréables, il lorgne un peu vers le dessinateur de Wolverine and the X-Men (dont le nom m’échappe là tout de suite, mais qui lui-même lorgne vers Art Adams et Ed McGuinness…).
    Bref, je viens de jeter un coup d’œil et c’est la fête aux surprises, pour le coup.

Bradshaw ? C’est bizarre, ça ne me serait pas venu à l’idée de comparer ces pages à du Bradshaw.
