On pouvait s’attendre à un retour en avant, après JLD.

Ca fait très Hulk je trouve quand je vois la cover

Franchement, ça se tente. Ram V est vraiment plus qu’une simple rame de papiers.

Ses JLD le prouvent. C’est vraiment le protégé de Tynion. Méthodique, perfectionniste et avec une bonne vision de son intrigue, DC ne s’y trompe pas. Je parie sur sa plume à l’avenir.

:joy_cat: Tu as vraiment osé : respect :joy_cat:

Oui (j’ai un peu honte).

Ce nouveau titre Swamp Thing sera une mini-série en 10 épisodes.

Pas plus mal.

Je ne sais si c’est aidé les ventes de de dire que c’est une mini. Limite, je me dis que je vais attendre le TPB, voire pire, la VF.

J’ai sauté le Future State pour prendre ce premier épisode décrivant sommairement le futur porteur de l’anneau naturel. Un Indien élu…

On reste là dessus. Cela fait peut à se mettre sous la langue mais l’écriture est solide et Mike Perkins reste taillé pour le job (perso je le préfère sur ce style d’intrigue que sur Lois Lane).

The-Swamp-Thing-2-1

The trials of Levi Kamei, the new avatar of the Green, grow darker as the Pale Wanderer’s bloody spree leaves a trail of death across the Sonoran Desert. While his “lessons” begin to show Levi the true nature of what he is becoming, it is Jennifer Reece who’ll show Levi that he must contend with his past and his trauma in order to stop the murderous wraith. Will Levi Kamei grasp his newfound place in this world as the Swamp Thing? Or will his fears consume him before the new avatar can even take root? Find out as this eternal conflict of life and death comes to a head!

La série continue de me plaire.
Même si le rythme reste assez calme, il n’empêche que le ton du récit sied à Mike Perkins. Les planches sont magnifiques.

Reste que la lecture sera encore meilleure d’un bloc.

The-Swamp-Thing-4-1-min

Still trapped within the Green, Levi and Jennifer have encountered its denizens, both friendly and vile. But something is terribly wrong within the Green itself, and its origins may be closer to home than Levi thinks. As Swamp Thing, he must now use lessons learned to embrace his power and bring peace. But is he already too late? Have the seeds of discontent already been planted for the contagion to enter our world?

The-Swamp-Thing-5-1

Newly armed with the knowledge and powers he gained from the Green and yet lonelier than ever, Levi Kamei is pulled once more into service as the Avatar of the Green is summoned by primal forces to the city of London, where old ideas lie buried, slowly leaching into the reality above. The scars of old wars and the dangers of past ideologies resurface as the Swamp Thing must team up with an old trench-coated acquaintance and his new protégé to save the present from the atrocities of our past.
