THE STEAM MAN #1-4 (Lansdale, Miller / Piotr Kowalski)


(Jack!) #1

Basée sur un concept du romancier Joe Lansdale ([size=85]ancien scénariste de la série animée Batman dans les années 90[/size]), Dark Horse publiera la mini-série The Steam Man sous l’égide du scénariste Mark Miller (Next Testament, Pirouette) et du prolifique dessinateur Piotr Kowalski (Nightbreed, Terminal Hero, Sex)

L’histoire suit un robot géant piloté par des chasseurs de monstres; protecteurs de l’ouest contre les invasions récurrentes des grands singes albinos sanguinaires et des extra-terrestres jusqu’au jour où un puissant vampire débarque dans la région.

The Steam Man #1 sortira en juillet.

[quote]It’s a bit more the other way around, actually. Joe’s original short story upon which the comic is based (“The Steam Man of the Prairie and the Dark Rider Get Down”) was first printed well before Cowboys and Aliens or Pacific Rim were part of the zeitgeist. It’s a completely mondo story that I first read in the Subterranean Press book, Mad Dog Summer and Other Stories. It comes completely out of left field and when I began to understand what Joe was doing with the story, my jaw dropped. I was hooked and it’s been a favorite of mine ever since.

It’s perfect for visual adaptation and I think Piotr has done some of the best work of his career so far. It’s wholly original, and if people find it as much fun to read in comic form as I found it as a short story, then they’re in for a real treat.[/quote]

The Old West, but not as we know it. Giant steam-powered robots are created to take down invading Martians and armies of killer albino apes in an all-out brawl. The Steam Man, a giant metal man operated by a team of monster hunters, seems to have the town protected and the West under control, until a crazed and powerful vampire comes to town to bring forth the apocalypse![/quote]

J’en suis, Joe R. Lansdale est l’un de mes romanciers favoris.

Il est celui vers qui la famille et les ayants droit d’Edgar Rice Burroughs (un autre auteur faisant partie de mon panthéon personnel) se sont tournés pour terminer une aventure de **Tarzan ** (magnifique).
Et son passage sur **Conan **, le Lone Ranger ou encore Jonah Hex sont de mon point de vue, mémorable.

Sans compter les films que son oeuvre a inspirés.

Bref, un “acteur” incontournable de l’aquarium popculturel mondial (20ème & 21ème siècle).

Ceci dit avec recul.

The Dark Rider’s tale is one of tragedy and cold-blooded murder. But how did he go from mild-mannered time traveler to the deadliest vampire the Old West has ever known?[/quote]
