THE NAMES #1-7 (Peter Milligan / Leandro Fernandez)

Le projet The Discipline étant tombé dans les limbes, le scénariste Peter Milligan et le dessinateur Leandro Fernandez travaillent actuellement sur la mini-série The Names (en huit numéros) qui débutera en septembre chez Vertigo. Décrit comme un mélange de “Les Loups de Wall Street” et “Kill Bill”, l’histoire raconte comment Katya Walker, une veuve de 25 ans, pourchasse les assassins de son mari banquier et découvre l’organisation secrète baptisée “Les Noms”.

A noter que Milligan est une des figures de proue de Vertigo. Entre 1989 et 2011, il y publie pas moins d’une vingtaine de séries et mini-séries, dont Shade the Changing Man (avec Chris Bachalo), Enigma (avec Duncan Fegredo) ou encore Human Target.

Hum, je suis curieux de voir ce que ça va donner. J’aime bien Fernandez et avec Milligan, dans un projet Vertigo, ça peut être très prometteur !

je suis rarement transporté par les histoires de milligan mais c’est l’un des auteurs que je trouve les plus agréable à lire.

Tout pareil. Le combo fait très envie.

New York City. Forty-year-old Kevin Walker is a successful trader. He’s incredibly rich. He has a young, sexy wife and a son he adores. He has everything. Until…
The mysterious man known as the Surgeon walks into Kevin’s office. He takes a seat and tells Kevin to write a suicide note. Trembling but obedient, Kevin does what the Surgeon says. Then, at a word from this well-dressed figure, Kevin jumps out his window and falls fifty stories to his death.
Thus begins THE NAMES, an 8-issue miniseries by writer Peter Milligan (HELLBLAZER, SKREEMER) and artist Leandro Fernandez (Wolverine, Punisher: Max). THE NAMES is a dark, contemporary thriller set in the world of Big Money: hedge funds, leveraged buyouts, market raids, flash crashes. High-end finance that can ruin entire economies, run by a cabal of the world’s richest (and sickest) people.
Now, it’s up to Katya Walker – the beautiful and deadly wife of the late Kevin – to take on this hidden power structure and find out who killed her husband, and why. No matter what it takes. No matter who she has to kill.
It’s The Wolf of Wall Street meets Kill Bill. And heaven help the 1%.[/quote]

[quote]The panels are laid out in the script pretty much as you see them, but not exactly. I believe the vertical splash was Leandro’s brilliant idea. Leo might play things around a little and have some wonderful ideas, in which case of they’re incorporated. Some artists seem to play around with panel shapes or layout purely for the sake of it Here Leandro has done it right. The layout should serve the narrative, tell the story. And in this critical scene we really get a sense of the thunderbolt that’s hitting Katya.

This is one of the first “messages” that Katya will get from Kevin from beyond the grave. I like its classic spy or suspense story feel. Note also that the phone Kevin’s left the message on is unlike your average iPhone or Androids.[/quote]
